Powder -NYX - Stay Matte but not Flat Powder Foundation

The name is a flat-out lie. It does not keep me matte at all. It doesn't even feel like I put on any powder right after I applied it. I use it as a setting powder, following my Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream, and for a little extra coverage. The coverage is slight, which is why I gave this a 2 instead of a 1. I don't know how they can call it "Stay Matte" because there is absolutely no mattifying properties in this. Even if I use the sponge it came with and pack it on, I'm greasy an hour later and an oil slick by lunch. Sigh, still in search of that awesome mattifying powder...
Powder -Maybelline - Shine Free Oil Control Loose Powder

I have a love/hate relationship with this powder. I bought it in light and it goes very well with my skin tone. It adds that extra bit of coverage, which I really like, and it looks really good right after I applied my makeup. That being said, it does NOTHING to control my oil. Two hours later and I've got a slight oil slick happening and I have to blot. Another two to four hours later, after blotting, I've got another oil slick happening. It's very frustrating considering this product is called "Shine Free Oil Control."
