Pressed Powder for Spring

Is my pressed powder of choice for the Spring. I like full coverage, heavy duty powders during the winter as I can get away with that in the darker days but when its light and bright in the Spring, I like to opt for minimal powder coverage and one which even if I slap on a bit too much, it's easy to get away with.

Basically something foolproof like Clinique's Stay Matte Pressed Powder.
This is specifically made for combination skin types and it says that clearly on the packaging which is always so reassuring right? I’ve hardly seen powders mentioning it so explicitly so I quite liked it. 

It is apparently one of the full coverage powders they have in their range and despite being one, it claims not to break you out and that it did not on my combination-sensitive skin very well. 

The shade 02 is perfect for me. It actually looks dark in the pan but its pretty good match for NC30-35. It does provide some coverage so I like to use it on the chin and the t-zone in particular. 

If you have found MAC Studio Fix Powder a bit too heavy, you should surely give this a go! It only lasts for a couple of hours however so you would have to touch up or blot during mid-day which I don't mind and it’s almost become like a ritual now so oh well.

Have you got any favourite pressed powders for combination skin?
