I’ve tried so many loose powders and the only one I ever finish is Boots No.7. I don’t know why I insist on buying others to try when I always go back to that... I don’t have oily skin though, but I do sweat a lot so powders have to withstand that.
Thanks everyone - I bought the Boots No 7 loose powder, and will be road testing it in the morning. The holes in the packaging only dispense a few tiny flakes of powder though, and i ended up requiring DH (plus screw driver) to help me break into the pot!!!
Well so far so good with the Boots No 7 – it looked and felt fine when I applied it this morning. Although I’m definitely going to decant it into a different type of pot. I had to re-powder before I went out on my lunch break (but that’s the same with my Corn Silk powder, nothing keeps me matte longer than a couple of hours). So maybe I’ve just found a suitable replacement! Quite a bargain for £10.50. I read a lot of good stuff about Laura Mercier, but it’s nearly 3 times the price. No 7 do some really nice products these days.
