What's your powder & foundation?

Some of my cosmetics/toiletries are almost over which means a shopping trip for replacements.

Currently I'm using Double Wear Stay-in-Place foundation from Estee Lauder (here) and Prescriptive's Virtual Matte Oil-Control Pressed Powder (here)

The foundation stays in place until I wash it off, though by the end of the day my face does get a bit shiny so I guess the powder doesn't quite counterract oily skin.

Which got me to wondering what make up y'all use - especially if you have oily or combination skin. I need a guide for How Not To Look Like A Brown Light Bulb.

For the few other south asians on the flist, what do y'all use to get balanced color - have to ask since the skin pigment around my eyes is darker than the other areas of my face D: It runs in the family unfortunately.

My sister swears by Bare Escentuals - but I've noticed loose powders have a tendency to get everywhere, especially with me.
