EDIT: Thank you for all the responses! Everyone has helped me a lot and gave me insight : ) Oh, and I live in Hawaii. 

I actually own a pressed powder I picked up while I was in Korea but I am running out. I was also noticing I tend to go over my face 2 - 3 times with it, and I realized that I was expecting too much from it.

Next time I go to Sephora I will check out the Clinique powders, along with Cover FX, since those seem to be for more sensitive skin~ I also need to check out a Shiseido counter at the department store. 

Thank you again!

Hi Jedo,  like beautylovingirl said, there are different options within the powder category, some are designed to be finishing or setting powders that take away shine and set your foundation.  These tend to be lighter and sheerer than actual powder foundations.


I'm in the same boat as you, needing to switch from liquid/cream foundations to powders.  Ones I have used in the past and liked enough to purchase multiple times are Clinique Superpowder Double Face Makeup, and Lancome Dual Finish.  I prefer more coverage than less and those fit the bill for me, going on smoothly without being chalky.  I also really liked Bare Minerals matte loose powder foundation which is actually my favorite of the three; unfortunately I recently realized that my skin is senstive to the sunscreen ingredients in the Bare Minerals.


Others that I have my eye on are Lorac's Oil Free Wet-Dry Powder Makeup, and Cover FX Pressed Mineral Foundation.  The Cover FX has an incredible shade range compared to the others.
