the best full coverage ( pressed ) powder foundation?

what is the best full ( complete ) coverage powder foundation, to cover everything ( and i'm not talking about natural look, i just want  all acne spots and scars and redness covered completely ) , long lasting, waterproof, non transferable, in very pale shade ( pink undertone ). usually everything is to dark or to orange/yellow on my skin. my skin used to be oily, but now is more normal with dehydrated/dry t-zone and cheeks, so most of foundations out there ( liquid, powdered, creamy .... ) usually just pronounce those dry areas making them all flakey ( no matter what i do before putting the foundation, what creams, lotions, primers i use, cleansing, exfoliating....tryed so many things, different combos... nothing works ). i'm open to suggestions for good liquid foundation with all charasteristics stated above for powder foundation, but powder one is still the main focus. or maybe combo of both of them? help guys!!!!

In a pressed powder foundation, you may want to try Clinique Superpowder Double Face Makeup which is a long-wearing 2-in-1 powder and foundation in a portable compact.  The long-wearing, full-coverage powder works as an over-foundation finisher or as a powder foundation. The extra-cling formula provides double coverage, yet leaves your skin with a natural skin-perfecting look.  It works great for combination skin types and it's non-acnegenic so it won't clog your pores or cause breakouts.  You can find it here:  http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P122736&categoryId=B70

Bobbi Brown brand foundations come in some of the lightest shades I know of.  If the Clinique powder is too dark for you, then you may want to try Bobbi Brown Illuminating Finish Powder Compact Foundation SPF 12 which you can read about here:  http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P278401&shouldPaginate=true&categoryId=5644

You are probably going to get the best coverage from a cream foundation, however.  If you want to try a full-coverage cream foundation, I would try Cover FX Total Coverage Cream Foundation SPF 30.  It will give you a dewy, radiant finish.  It is non-comedogenic (so it won't clog your pores or cause breakouts), fragrance-free and oil-free. The results leave your skin looking flawless and you can find it here:  http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P191303&categoryId=B70

You can also use the Cover FX Foundation Shade Finder tool to help you choose the perfect skin tone match.  You can access it here:  http://www.sephora.com/browse/brand_hierarchy.jhtml?brandId=Cover%20FX&contentId=C21003

Hope this helps!
Have a great day!
