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 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 to convince us that their product is the best. That's a lot of work for a category of makeup that shouldn't really get noticed, right? Well, in order to put an end to this madness and to hopefully save you a few bucks, we thought we'd share a list of the top-rated face powders according to our readers, along with a few editors' picks.

We combed through thousands of reviews to bring you the most helpful, insightful tidbits about the best face powders on our site. Readers claim these powders are winners amongst a sea of mediocre face products.

So before you set your makeup again, take a gander at the best powders on this list and ask yourself: "Self, would you say such lovely things about the powder you just topped your foundation with?" If the answer is no, it's time to hit the drugstore aisle or beauty counter — armed with this list of the 14 best face powders.
