It’s time for another Forgotten Favourite! (Read my last one here).
When I was a young ‘un, I had quite the small budget for beauty items. Whilst now my beauty hoard has filled a three drawer storage unit from Wilkinsons, back then all my make up really did fit in one bag. Those were the days!
One thing that hasn’t changed though, is my love for Rimmel Stay Matte. Whilst I dabble in other different brands of foundations and mascaras and lipsticks, this is the only beauty item I continue to repurchase. At £3.99, it is cheap for the amount of product you receive. It doesn’t give me a full coverage face instantly and I do not expect it to; instead it blots away excess shine (and I have a lorra lorra shine lately!) and helps to “set” my foundation. I love to apply this with my ECOTOOLS Bamboo Buffing Brush (review) as the flat top is perfect for “pushing” the powder into my base as opposed to swirling it around (be warned, heavy handed-ness and over eager swirling will leave your clothes covered in powder!). I have never experienced any irritation or breakouts because of this powder. It doesn’t feel heavy on the skin either which means you can use it on bare skin on no make up days/good skin days. Whenever I travel, this is always something I take as the slim design means it can be squished into any bulging make up bag (and believe me, mine is always overflowing!).
For those who suffer with particularly troublesome skin, Rimmel also do a Clear Complexion offering. That is definitely one to pick up to try the next time I repurchase Stay Matte!
If you’re after a powder simply to set your base, give this a try. For £3.99, what is the worst that could happen?
