I hope you're all having a great sunday! It's time for another instalment in the Have You Discovered…? series! And the topic today is "Powder / Blotting Methods".
My product of choice for this topic is definitely not undiscovered but it's my favourite powder and I haven't seen many blog post praises about it lately! So let's bring it back: the Stay Matte Pressed Powder from Rimmel London!
|thank god I found an old photo of this because the writing has come off by now!|
I've bought the powder tin that I'm still using back in october after reading some rave reviews and heard some beauty gurus mention it in their youtube videos. The shade I use is "001 Transparent" and it was my first time using a transparent powder. Honestly I didn't know what to expect when I first purchased this but I've grown to love it after giving it a whirl!
I love the fact that it sets my foundation perfectly and I don't look cakey when it's applied. I find that a lot of coloured powders can make you look caked if you apply to much (yes I'm talking from own experience …sigh). This is a light powder that applies smoothly and hides any oiliness that might be on your face. It's supposed to give you a matte finish and that's exactly what it does!
On the tin it states that the powder will give you up to 5 hours natural shine control but honestly I rarely touch up because I feel it still looks fine after more than 5 hours (but maybe that's just my opinion). The powder also claims to help minimize the appearance of pores - which I can't tell because I don't think my pores "stand out" too much.
I've already hit pan with this powder and once I've used it all up, I will definitely be repurchasing it! It's a great product and for the price of £3.99 a great deal!
Have you tried the Stay Matte powder yourself? Or tell me what your favourite powder is!
