In my opinion a loose setting powder is somewhat better, it works very well and gives a subtle result.
Here are the loose powders I have so far :
Chanel Poudre Universelle ( 4 )
Nars loose powder
Dior loose powders ( 3 )
Guerlain les Voilettes
MUFE HD powder
Yves Rocher loose powder
I also have Benefit " Get Even " ( pressed ) which is very good too.
And others such as Estee Lauder Aeromatte ( very good pressed powder )
In fact, a loose powder is just more subtle but Aeromatte is a perfect setting powder too.
I haven't purchased the Nars ones but I guess the texture is close to perfection, Nars powders are highly good.
