5 Best Drugstore Face Powders
Every beauty lover knows that a long-lasting makeup look is never complete without a final dusting of setting powder. After years of trying every setting powder on the market, we discovered that some of the best ones are from the drugstore. We’ve rounded up our top five affordable drugstore face powders, including translucent and tinted options, ahead.

Maybelline New York Lasting Fix Banana Powder

Instantly blur pores and give your makeup a soft matte finish with this brightening powder. The yellow shade helps cancel out dark tones you might be trying to conceal under your eyes, and the finely milled texture feels light as air on the skin.

L'Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Sweep & Lock Loose Setting Face Powder 

You won’t notice any flashback or white cast from this totally translucent powder, but you will notice a velvety matte finish that lasts all day. The micro-fine particles prevent your makeup from looking cakey.
