In my 40’s but still get shiny - I’m looking for an excellent quality translucent face powder. The best I have tried is HD Perfecting Powder by Chantecaille but it is soooo pricey and the pan broke before it was finished so am a bit reluctant to re- purchase. Any other recommendations?

Is it pressed or loose powder that you use? If pressed, Mac Blot is excellent. If loose, I like Fenty Beauty (in Lavender but they have a range of yellow based shades too). Both seem a bit dear but you get a lot/they last well.

Boots No 7 Airbrush away powder compact is excellent, often on 3 for 2. I really rate it, shade translucent.

Laura Mercier is the best in my experience.

I second Laura Mercier and Fenty Beauty (I use the shade butter)

Oh, and I keep Charlotte Tilbury magic powder in my bag for touch ups.

BeautyPie one powder wonder is very good - that's my handbag one, CT magic loose powder for when I do my makeup on the morning.

I use By Terry. It’s superb

I like Bare Minerals mineral veil. You only need a very little and it looks great.

I have tried many over the years. Current best find is Bare Minerals. Lasts a 12 hour shift with only one touch up. The second is Mac.

Another LM fan here. The pressed translucent powder is excellent - completely invisible but matifies and gives a nice “finished” look.

I've used no7 for years

I really like By Terry Hyaluronic Hydra Pressed Powder

I have slightly oily skin and find loose powder works better. I always used Corn Silk powder, which was sadly discontinued, but find Clinique Loose powder to be a good alternative

Another vote for Bare Minerals mineral veil.

seensome Tue 18-Aug-20 19:56:27

Another vote for no7 airbrush compact, great budget buy and is very fine.
I also like aveda and Clinique

Oh thanks for all the recommendations- will have a look on line but maybe hold off till I can try a few in store...

Laura Mercier!

By Terry Hyaluronic Hydra Pressed Powder

This is my favourite, although I think the packaging feels really cheap for something so expensive. It’s great stuff though.

A great budget loose powder is Revolution hydramat (think that's its name). More expensive but very good is Bye Bye Pores by IT Cosmetics.

Judystilldreamsofhorses Tue 18-Aug-20 22:49:49

By Terry here too. It is very expensive, but one pot lasts me at least a year with daily use.

Judystilldreamsofhorses Tue 18-Aug-20 22:50:53

(I use a loose version.)

A moment to mourn the passing of Corn Silk 😞

However, Kat Von D loose powder is very good and doesn’t change the colour of your base.
