Bourjois Healthy Balance Unifying Powder in texture (that's where the similarities end though). This powder doesn't cause much kick up, even if you swirl your brush in it. This powder is quite nice on it's own, it buffs into the skin nicely, providing light coverage with a natural matte finish , while controlling oil for a couple hours before reapplication is required. Matte Maker can go one of two ways when used as a setting powder. With some foundations, its truly lovely, it adds just a touch of additional coverage, a matte finish, all while keeping oil breakthrough at bay. However, my more common experience is a cakey nightmare! When worn over most foundations, even a light dusting (and I mean applied with a wispy fan brush), Matte Maker cakes up something awful! I'm not sure what causes the caking, as it happens over a wide variety of concealers and foundation. Regardless of the caking, Matte Maker still elongates the wear if my makeup. This powder doesn't seem to accentuate dryness, pores, or fine lines.
Classic Ivory shades, and warmer than Maybelline's Porcelain Ivory (10). Classic Ivory matches me quite well.

Maybelline's Matte Maker has pros and cons. You get a ton of product for a very reasonable price, but packaging is just plain crappy. This powder has a nice texture and I really like how it applies over bare or primed skin - it provides light, but even matte coverage while controlling oil for a good chunk of my day. I like it way less as a setting powder, because who wants a gross case of cake face? The lightest shade, Classic Ivory, works well for me, its pale enough with just the right amount of yellow to it. If you want a stand alone powder that'll control oil and even out skin tone, Maybelline's Matte Maker may be for you!
