Best compact foundation?

Going on holiday first thing tomorrow and I've run out of my compact all-in-one foundation. We're flying from Heathrow so I can pick up something in duty free. I'm as white as a ghost, but pretty even skin and few imperfections. I like something to match my skin tone, rather than give me 'colour'. And I like something light - usually I apply with a powder brush to just give light coverage.

I can't replace my current one - it's by Molton Brown back in the day when they did (EXCELLENT!!!) make up. I stockpiled like mad....

So, what's good? Thank you!

Apparently Estee Lauder do good makeup for us pale types & there is a compact all in one foundation in their range. The prices made me a bit shock though. Would love to see any other recommendations.

Thanks! I love Laura Mercier products, but I don't think I can get them in Heathrow. Ester lauder should be a good bet though!

Thanks. Hopefully between EL and G should find something in Duty Free smile.

Elizabeth Arden Pure Finish. It's a powder foundation with a little grinder which shaves off just enough loosen powder to apply. It is lovely stuff, and definitely available in the Duty Free.
