face powder for oily skin/large pores?

I have large pores on my face and oily skin, I NEED to wear powder but everytime I do, I end up with pimples. Anything I put on my face around T zone and chin seems to clog up the pores. Has anyone had any luck with a powder that will take away the shine and smooth out my complexion with out making acne WORSE? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

The best powder for oily skin is Clinique. It's a little bit more expensive, but I promise you will love it. I use the blended Loose Powder and the Stay Matte Compact. I believe they are both $17.50, but they will last a good while. It has never made me break out and it really keeps shine away.

Sammy726 - is the Loose Powder a foundation? And then you use the Stay Matte on top of that? How oily is your skin? I know, I know, I sound like an interrogator. But I have really oily skin too and I'd love to find a powder to help with that. Right now I'm using Maybelline PureStay powder foundation, and I love the way it covers well, evens out my complexion, is easy to put on, and doesn't seem to be breaking me out. The only downside to it is that it doesn't seem to control my shine very well at all.
