But what makes one powder better than another, and are the super-expensive products more foolproof than their drugstore counterparts? After combing through thousands of reviews from readers who've dusted and pressed them all onto their faces, we were surprised to find that some of the lowest-rated products are from high-end brands.
How can this be?

What's more, DeHaven says that if a woman is paying top dollar for a powder, she's going to expect it to work miracles and be absolutely flawless.
Want to know which powders actually do work miracles? Here they are. But just as important is knowing about the ones that'll make you look like you have flour thrown on your face. Read on for that list.
