My favorite setting powder

I've been using this Maybelline Instant Age Rewind powder for a while now. I love it as a setting powder and I would say it's comparable if not better than MAC's mineralize skinfinish natural. I apply it over my liquid foundation and you seriously can't even see my pores!

It looks a little chalky on my finger, but not at all on my face. I apply it with a big fluffy brush and it's absolute perfection. The only negative to this powder is that it's SPF25 so it does NOT photograph well.
Unfortunately, I tried this powder for the first time on a night out when a flash was going to be used forgetting that it contains an SPF. As you can see it leaves a serious white cast, but in person my face and body completely matched. I still love the powder, just for day time wear though or when I know I won't be taking any pictures with a flash. Notice how smooth and even my skin looks? It's almost as if the skin is blurred, it just looks flawless.

Have any of you tried this powder before? What's your favorite setting powder?

I couldn't live without my msfn! That's definitely a bold statement to say that this maybelline one might be better.The packaging seems similar... maybe I'll check it out once mine runs out.

I'm not a regular foundation wearer but I agree your skin looks absolutely flawless - and I love your top! I wonder if this would work well on its own?
