If you’re looking for a good pressed powder you might find this post helpful. I recently bought AeroMatte Ultralucent Pressed Powder by Estee Lauder and I’m very pleased with it.
This powder is very finely milled, blurs out imperfections and doesn’t set into pores. You can use it on bare skin, and it’ll make your skin look naturally matte, but not in that old-fashioned dry kind of way. It works as a setting powder too, over tinted moisturizer or foundation. Of course, like most powders it applies best with a powder brush instead of the included puff.
The compact itself looks nice and elegant too, which I think is important.
To make sure my new powder doesn’t feel lonely, I also purchased a lipstick to keep it company. This is the cult lipstick of all times, Estee Lauder Signature Lipstick in Cocoa Rose 13.
