My favorite is Laura Mercier loose powder. They have two different sizes: a full size and a mini size that you can put in your purse. They even have a mini-puff so you can do touch-ups on the go. My skin is extremely oily, so no matter which powder I use, I always have to do touch ups. I have to do fewer touch ups when I use Laura Mercier powder (than other brands).
Oh, time to promote my favorite product: CoverGirl Professional Loose Powder! I've tried several loose powders in both department store and drugstore brands, and this is by far the best AND the cheapest at only $5! It's the only one that keeps my face matte for any significant amount of time!
My dermatologist told me to only wear loose powders so I don't know anything about pressed powders, though I've heard good things about Mac Blot. (My dermatologist said that all pressed powders contain oils that are used to press the powder into the compact and those oils can clog your face, but there are some makeup artists on this board that say some pressed powders are perfectly safe for oily skin, so whatever! lol)
