My Favorite Drugstore/Affordable Setting Loose Powders

I've owned a good share of setting loose powders in my life time, and I've come to LOVE a few drugstore/affordable ones which I will share with you today!  First off what is the purpose of a setting powder? Well for me I generally tend to have oily skin (with some dry spots) so I need a setting powder to help with my oily face (especially in the summer time).  In addition, I prefer using liquid foundation (vs powder) so I like to set my face with a setting powder just to create a matte look, to take away any shine that the liquid foundation may have created.

My favorite Drugstore/Affordable Setting Loose Powders are:

On all these setting loose powders I actually own 2 colors a light (translucent)and a medium, one for winter where  my skin gets lighter and one for summer where my skin is more tanned/bronzed.  All three of these powders creates a smooth and soft looking skin, they all eliminate shine, and allow my liquid foundation to stay put without the oil and shine for well over 8 hours.

How to Apply?  Well as you can see in the picture above these setting powders are loose so you either need a powder puff or a brush.  These I believe come with a powder puff but i prefer a brush because I feel like the product blends a lot better and with a lot less effort!  All of these setting powders are very easy to work with and blend perfectly into the skin, to create a natural look, and not cakey at all!
