Today I have a quick little review post for you all! I am one of those lucky people that has oily skin (Whoo. Not.) and that means that I am pretty much best friends with anything that helps to mattify my makeup.
And with summer coming up, that warm weather and sunshine is going to have a lot of fun wrecking havoc on my T-Zone and making me lovely and reflective like a high-visability vest.
Buuuuuuuut, out of many tried and tested products, I have finally found a lovely little pressed powder that keeps shine at bay and makeup lasting all day!
And this is it:
Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder - Silky Beige
One of my favourite beauty gurus Bethany Mota (a.k.a. macbarbie07) uses the Rimmel Stay Matte to set her foundation and concealer in almost every makeup tutorial she makes, and her skin is gorgeous, so I thought I'd get my hands on one myself with fingers crossed that it'd work as well for me.
And it does! It successfully:
- Sets makeup and keeps it in place
- Stops shine for over five hours
- Mattifies makeup (but doesn't leave the face powdery or white)
- Evens out skin tone and helps minimises pores
On the skin it just feels like a mix between a mineral powder and a light pressed powder foundation, which is perfect because I don't like to wear a lot of makeup during summer, so this will definitely help just mattify my skin without overloading on the makeup.
|Before: Here I'm wearing tinted moisturiser and concealer (and eye makeup).|
|After: Already my skin tone is evened out and looks so smooth!|
It also comes in three shades - Transparent, Sandstorm and Silky Beige (which is the one I use) so you can find a shade that best suits your skin tone, although I would recommend using a wide bristled kabuki brush when applying and only dust on a small amount - the shades available are all very light in colour and could wash you out if you're a tad heavy-handed and have darker skin! Less is more ladies :)
Until next time!
