I always prefer to use powder over liquid foundation. Cos powder wouldn't clogged pores right?

Big fat wrong!

I've used corn starch and this is really good at controlling oil. I thought I found my hg. Ithe made my oily dehydrated skin worse. I'm now suffering tiny bumps all over my face :(

I might use it only on my nose.

I have combination skin and my nose just looks so oily. I wear glasses and they slide off my nose.
I love how the cornstarch just makes me matte and controls the oil in a way. I also use this under my eye for the baking method which I'm pretty sure everyone has heard of by now and I feel like it does a good job and it's amazing. Aaand I use the cornstarch for my lips.. I know …

I have the oiliest skin you could every imagine. I even got a prescribed topical cream and pill to control the oil and acne outbreaks. None of it works, for the oiliness that it. But a light dusting of cornstarch does the trick, keeps me matte for almost the whole day. At the moment my car doesn't have air conditioning, so I'm lucky it's cool enough in the morning so I'm not …Read more

Common cornstarch is a great oil-absorber - but you must be careful if you have enlarged pores as it can settle into them and clog you worse than before you started. Also good as a powder for body.

Inexpensive and easy to add to other ingredients.

I've read people using cocoa and cornstarch for loose powder online and was wondering if it would deepen my mineral powder foundation for summer so I wouldn't need to buy a shade or two deeper. It worked very well. After doing a test batch on a small amount and knew it would work, I added cocoa, little by little and ground up well, to my existing mineral foundation and got a perfect …Read more

This stuff is amazing. Not only keep my oilies at bay (when used as a setting powder) it also works just as great as dry shampoo. My hair is black but it doesn't leave any white residue. And I also use this on top of any lipstick when I feel like wearing matte lipstick and this doesn't dry out my lips. All in all, a perfect product (and is cheap as dirt) will repurchase over and over.

I'm going to try & keep this to-the-point.

1. I have combination skin. Cornstarch is the ONE & ONLY powder I've ever (lightly) applied to my face & had last throughout the day. Unintentionally, I suppose I use it as a setting powder. I use moisturizer, BB cream, concealer if desired, and then dust with cornstarch once my makeup has 'absorbed' a bit. …

I had noticed that corn starch (commonly referred to as corn flour in my part of the world) is an ingredient contained in many setting powders. I have oily skin for the most part, so powdering is an essential step in my make-up routine.

I decided to use some corn flour from the pantry as a setting powder after liquid foundation. I have used regular baby powder before, and was quite …
