I tan well, but still need a powder to help combat shine, i have been using Mac for years and finding its not working as well for me! wondering what other ladies out there recommend as a holiday face powder? i prefer compact to loose! heading into town tomorrow, so ideas appreciated as to which counters I should head towards! thanks

I only use loose, however Clinique compact powders I have found good previously.

Definitely a translucent, I've a Chanel one at the mo and I quite like it. I use a powder (Laura mercier) in the morning then carry this around with me during the day/or when out for dinner.

I use the Chanel one too. It lasts forever and I like it.

I use Benefit Get Even, which is especially to combath shine/redness. It really is brilliant. I tried to take a break from it as it's £22 a pop, I have tried others but I have come back to this. I only need to apply it once a day too. smile
