I mostly only use MAC products and prefer their Blot powder over the Studio Fix. Blot powder is like a more traditional pressed powder whereas Studio Fix is much heavier and can be used instead of foundation.
I really liked a Ruby and Millie powder I used last year too, which wasn't too pricey.
Hard Candy and Urban Decay do nice pressed powders as well. I really loved my Hard Candy one as it had a nice texture.
yes defo going to get the one I want, just need to make the right choice as pressed powders generally last a while don't they
going to have a look at that blot powder as I'm not sure my skin would be happy with the heavier studio fix (I think that's also why I always tend to go for tranculent powders as well, rather than coloured)
will also look at those others you suggested erzibetta, I used Ruby & Millie's eyeshadows last year and thought they were really nice. never used hard candy or urban decay but here is my opportunity to try them I guess!!
Definitely give Blot powder a try then. It is much lighter and doesn't make me feel all 'made up' like Studio Fix does. Also I find with Studio Fix that if you put a little on, then you might as well just plaster it all over your face as the coverage is so heavy whereas with Blot powder you can just dab it on in a more refined manner.
