My pressed powder is almost over and I'm looking for my next HG powder! Since now I've used twice Estee Lauder's Double Matte, it's a nice powder but I want to try and another brand!! The only brand tha I've try and I won't try it again is Mac, I try Studio Fix and the powder sucks for my oily skin, I had a terrible reaction to that powder,it made my almost invisible acne more visiblePosted Image!! So I'm looking for a pressed powder specially for oily skins!! What's your suggestions??Posted Image

I already have Clinique's loose powder,but it's not so practical to have it in my bag!I wish we had Prescriptives here,we also don't have Stila's Sheer Color we only have Stila's Pressed Powder and I want to ask you if it's a good powder for oily skins,because I'm thinking to buy it!

Stila is going to release a new powder?That's cool!! From the name I can guess it's for combo skins!

I use Maybelline pressed powder. It is 'shine-free' so it is made especially for oily skin.

Honestly, loose powder is going to be best for oily skin -- my dermatologist said that all pressed powders contain oils (which can clog your pores) to pack the powder into the compact, although I have seen a few pressed powders that claim they won't clog your pores. I haven't tried them though -- I am currently using CoverGirl's Professional Loose Powder, and after trying several department store and drugstore powders, this is THE only one that keeps my very oily skin matte for a decent amount of time!

Hi! I don't have oily skin but my fave powder is Clean and Clear Invisible Powder. It is sheer, absorbs shine, but doesn't leave a powdery film on my skin. It's the only one I'll use.

i have combo acne prone skin and i really like physicians formula pressed powders. they're inexpensive (about $13) and don't clog my pores or cause me any irritation. beause i have brown skin i was theire bronzer as a pressed powder. they have so many formulas to choose from i'm sure you could find one that works for you. they even have a mineral makeup pressed powder. you can get it at any drugstore. good luck

I know you said you had a reaction to Studiofix, but it seems to be very hit or miss with people. I didn't like it either!! Posted Image I do, however, LOVE their Blot Powder. My skin is very sensitive and breakout-prone, and I have almost used up a whole compact with no problems.

Good to hear about Stila introducing a new powder. I am currently using Stila's Pressed Powder in Dark and I'm not really liking it. I've had better results with Estee Lauder's Double Matte and Clinique's pressed powder.

Really you didn't like Stila's pressed powder? Why it's not good for oily skin?Because I was thinking to try it! Now I still use Estee Lauder's double matte and I use it for 3 years now but I want to change it! Clinique's pressed powder is it good,worth trying it?
