Bobbi Brown skin Weightless Powder Foundation vs Estes Lauder Double Wear Powder

As above really....I'm a delurked newbie and have been using the Bobbi Brown in Alabaster as I'm very pale and have neither pink nor yellow tones to my skin.
However, love the foundation and colour as I do, I found after a few weeks carrying the compact around in my bag, the powder cracked and has now exploded inside the compact leaving a terrible mess sad
I'm waiting to hear back from Bobbi Brown if I've been unlucky, too violent (!) or it's a manufacturing fault.

But on my quest to find a compact powder foundation to keep in my handbag I have come across Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Powder makeup and wondered if anyone has used it?
Does it suffer from the same shattering tendencies as the Bobbi Brown one?

And secondly, has anyone any experience of the shades in this makeup - as I said I am very pale and like to add colour to my face with blusher not foundation so am I correct in saying 1N1 Ivory Nude is the palest shade ?

Thirdly if anyone has any other recommendations for this type of product in a colour that would suit please help.

Thank you gentle with me fblush

No experience with Estee Lauder Double wear powder but I do have the liquid foundation. I'm a pale neutral like you and my shade is 1N1 which is the lightest neutral colour. The 1C0 was too pink on me and I concluded that 1W1 would be too yellow. 1N1 is perfect, I'm also Alabaster in Bobbi Brown.
