My favorite powder is Careblend. It's the only one that doesn't feel heavy and coating on my dry skin and it's got a radiant finish without being showy-glowy. It evens out my skin without looking like I'm wearing powder. It doesn't crease up if I apply it under the eyes, either. The Careblend bronzer from a couple years ago was amazing too - I really hope MAC does something about bringing those back and just generally keeping Careblend's profile high. Discontinuing the MCLPs has gotten me all worried about Careblend now.
I'm not much of a concealer person, but I am very happy with the Mineralize one. It's the only one moist enough to not crease or bunch up under my eyes and it does a good job of concealing everything I need (although I don't mind a few freckles, I do have a couple of age spots near my eyes I like to erase). The other good thing about it is it has caffeine in it, so it depuffs me. Combining it with P&P Vibrancy Eye gives serious depuff-o-rama.
I do think Amber Glow is a particularly great blush for the no makeup look for me - wearing it, I really don't need to bother with a full face of powder. Just a little of it takes my face to the next level. I've never backed up a blush in my life, but I'm actually considering it for AG and maybe Alpine Bronze. If you took away all my other blushes and left me AG, I'd be ok with it.
