pressed powders for oily skin

Sephora customers often prefer the following products when searching for pressed powders for oily skin.

If you have oily skin, you know that powder foundations can be a challenge. The powdery finish can look cakey and accentuate your skin's oiliness. But there are some great pressed powders on the market that are better suited to dry skin than traditional loose powders. Here are some of our favorites.
