I'm sure you are all familiar with the infamous Makeup Forever HD Microfinish Powder. You know the one - the one that ended Angelina Jolie's makeup artist's career, and I'm sure that of many others. I personally don't mind the silky white formula, it doesn't look cakey at all, suits all skin tones, and does the job of making pores look pretty much invisible. The only downfall of the stuff, in my opinion, is that dreaded white-cast it gives when a camera flashes, so I wouldn't recommend wearing it to the clubs. However, for us normal people who aren't caught in the crossfire of paparazzi bulbs flashing, it works pretty well. 

A pretty recent discovery is the sister to the HD powder - say hello to your new loose powder best friend, the Makeup Forever Super Matte Loose Powder. This is a very similar textured powder, minus the Casper and plus some additional mattifying goodness. What I really love about this is that while it is translucent, it also has a hint of nude color to it so that you don't run the risk of looking at all chalky. Another bonus is, it does exactly what it says on the tin. When Make Up Forever say 'super matte' they mean business. It does the job so well that I find it even cuts the grease in the oiliest of tinted moisturizers. I have been loving using this to set my makeup, especially when I want something that lasts well and looks super natural. With the Super Matte there is no shimmer in sight and the result has everyone fooled, no tell tale powder signs here. A quick dusting of this over my light weekend base is just the ticket...
