Thanks for your responses everyone! Melisande- I really like your name too I like the idea of a slightly iridescent powder... I'm going to try the shiseido one, so I'll let you know how it goes

I don't see why people wouldn't wear powder, unless their skin is really either really dry or perfect.

People do still wear powder foundations, but I wouldn't wear cream/liquid blushers with it, because they seperates from each other on your face by the middle of the day, just my experience.

Especially with what I presume are the more natural-looking formulas now on the market. Perhaps you just can't tell when they're still wearing powder...

I use Manhattan Clearface Compact Powder with zinc and panthenol. It's antibacterial and doesn't clog the pores. I love it!

I use baby powder. Inexpensive and effective.

Exactly. I wear powder every day and it's just not like the olden days rennasiance white wig and 10 inches if white powder look. Powder can be very natural looking... also, I think there's nothing more unattractive than oily shiny skin!

I think most powders today look a lot more natural on the skin. It's just a matter of finding the right shade and never putting on too much. Especially if you have oily skin. I do and foundation works well, but powder adds a nice overall smooth feeling. So just go for it...

On some days if my skin is clear, all I need a dab of powder to take the shine away. As long as my skin is well-moisterised underneath, just wearing powder with no foundation/concealer is ok for me. I love my compact too! I bought an art nouveau compact and transferred my Shiseido powder refill into it.

you are so lucky! Well for me i need it or my makeup will rub off in about 30 minutes. sometimes tho i do like that perfect, powdery,50'sesque skin, so ill use a lil more powder, but i blend carefully- and i dont htink that theres anymore chalky powder with new formulation coming around. thats just my opinion.

P.S. and for everyone at tFS, i love it here!

I don't feel finished until I've set my make up with loose powder.

I have pretty oily skin, so powder's an absolute necessity for me. I put it on after foundation and concealer, before powder blush--it wouldn't work the other way. Don't know about cream and liquid blush as those have never worked for me ...

I use MAC Blot Powder in Light. If you have light skin, don't let them sell you Medium. It turns orange on me ...

I love my MAC blot powder to death. Then again I have oily skin in the warmer months so I can't be caught without it. It's very light and sheer; it doesn't add more color to your complexion.
