What Is The Best Drugstore Powder For Oily Skin?

Powder is an essential part in anyone’s makeup kit and nowadays has become so essential that the phrase “Going to powder my nose” has become widely used in the English language. It has become such an essential part of makeup as it gives the face a very matte effect which prevents its user from looking greasy.

Powder atop liquid or cream foundation helps to set it, so that it won’t migrate into any lines or slide down off the face. Certain powders can also reduce the look of fine lines and pores. It is also a great base upon which to apply blush, contour, bronzer, or shimmer.

Below are some of the best powders for oily skin that can be found in your local drugstores.
