Maybelline Super Stay 24Hour Powder
I like this powder. I chose the shade Fawn, in hindsight it was a little dark/orangey which means I can't apply as much as I'd probably like. It doesn't completely make my skin matte especially with my current dewy glow foundation, and so many other powders make me look flawless and my pores blurred and this I feel does not. However it feels light and fresh on the skin and doesn't feel cakey or powdery bone dry.

I really like this powder. The coverage is really good and it controls shine in my T-zone all through the day. It also hides my dark circles really well over a bit of concealer and foundation. Nothing else seems to do so as successfully. It even seems to smooth that area out - I suppose that's the mattifying effect.
It loses a star as the lightest shade is almost too dark. I have brown hair and green eyes but a very light skin tone. I have to be careful to blend it from my cheekbones to absolutely nothing along my jaw otherwise I get a 'mask' effect - especially in winter when my neck is super-pale.
I use the sponge provided to apply. It goes on nicely with an almost creamy but light powdery feeling.
It also loses a star for some clumping but this only occurs towards the end of the day and it's marginal. I tend not to touch it up with more as it seems to make the clumping worse! Its staying power is pretty good so not much touching up needed anyway.
Otherwise, love it. Would recommend.

I find this to be a good value powder just to set my foundation. It doesn't cake and it matches my skin tone well. However, for those who are looking for some extra coverage from their powder, I don't think that this provides it. Depending on which foundation I am using, I sometimes also have to use another powder on top over certain shiny areas as this doesn't always completely mattify.
