13 Best Powders

When it comes to face makeup, most of us will go to amazing lengths in order to find that perfect product. That one foundation, powder or concealer that completely hides spots, minimizes lines, smoothes texture and creates an overall flawless finish. (Does one such product even exist?!) We will spend a ton of cash -- maybe not on one product, but on the hundreds we've tested in a lifetime, read reviews until we're dizzy and, of course, allow makeup artist after makeup artist convince us that their product is the best.
