    Hi ladies, does anyone have a recommendation on the best matte powder out there? I have very oily skin as it is and adding the sun on to that is a disaster!!

      I recently started using the Vichy Dermablend line and I absolutely LOVE it! You don't use the powder on its own however, it works in conjunction with the makeup stick. You apply the makeup as a concealer or blend it allover as a foundation and then apply a generous amount of the colorless powder over it. Let it sit for 2 minutes while it binds to the makeup and then sweep off any excess with a brush. It stays put even with the astronomical amount of grease my nose produces and I stay shine-free alot longer than anything else I've tried.

        hi joanne ireland


         

        I have the best suggestion for you!!

         

        I have super oily skin and I HIGHLY recommend MACs Blot Powder.

         

        Its a pressed powder that you blot (don't swipe or rub, you are just depositing the powder in the exact areas you need it. If you rub, you are dragging the product everywhere) with a powder puff. I use the foam thing that comes with the pressed powder and that suprisingly works well cos you can get into all the nooks and crannys!!

              I always reference Makeup Alley's reviews and boards.  In the last couple of years I have switched over from MAC to Estee Lauder.

                try coverfx matte fx powder. It comes in 3 colours, but very light so you can reapply and it won't get cakey.

                  I'm a fan of Pur Minerals.  the powder is a foundation, but it isn't a heavy one....
