Face Powder for aging skin that doesn't cake or make your pores look bigger?

I need suggestions please on some Face Powders for aging skin that do not cake or make your pores look bigger? Powder to cut the shine on my face throughout the day. Do I look for something without talc?

Thanks! Smile

Make up Forever HD ( high definition) face powder, loose or compact is wonderful; it actually blurs lines, wrinkles and pores. It's white in the co gainer but brushes on clear, and it's non drying to the skin.

There is one by Tarte that is very good. It is white and doesn't cake up. I got it as a sample from Sephora.

I have been very happy with the results of layering faerieorganic mineral foundation and veil over liquid foundation.

I've read here recently that the e.l.f. HD finishing powder is a good dupe for Makeup Forever. I'm planning to pick it up at Target this week and will post about it later.

It's not a powder, but I have tried lots of powders.

I recommend Mally Poreless Face Defender.

It "sets" makeup, diminishes pores, and takes away shine.

Love it!

For me and my pores...IT's powder and the brush made to go with it are my go too.

Also JM's is a another good one, and I do have large pores.

Yes, e.l.f. HD finishing powder is identical to makeup forever's. Available at Target, Harmon drug and they have their own website. ($3.99 vs. $24.00)

Their prices are ridiculous too, far less expensive than even the average drugstore priced items!

That's their Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder. It is very nice. You may also want to try the NARS Light Reflecting Setting Powder in either loose or pressed versions.
