I prefer loose powder for setting liquid foundation because the loose powders seem to be more fine milled and seem to set the foundation well. I don't even own a pressed powder. I only own a foundation powder and use it by itself or for touch ups during the day because most of the time I'm lazy and don't do the liquid foundation plus loose powder. I just wear my Chanel double perfection powder makeup because it's quick and easy to use and gives a nice coverage.
Hi, I quite like loose powder for setting my makeup, but pressed powder is nice and compact for my make up bag to blot on my t-zone. I quite like pressed powder for setting my lipstick,and then i reapply the lipstick on top of the powder for extra staying power.

Hmmm whatever's clever
I used to use just loose powder, but I could never find a pressed powder that matched my skintone so I was super oily.Now I have the perfect pressed powder and I don't think I would use a loose again...
