Rimmel London Stay Matte Powder | £3.99 Boots
I'm ashamed to admit that until recently, I had never tried this product. The drugstore price tag and plastic packaging made me foolishly pass it by. Not to mention my skin's dislike to powders. That said, towards the end of each and every day a moon shine shimmer would be living it up on my forehead. Nice. So in an attempt to fix up my luminous face, I decided to pick this up and see what all the fuss was about....
My conclusion? It's the best darn' drugstore powder you will ever apply. It does exactly what it says on the plastic lid. It fixes up make-up seamlessly with a smooth matte finish and keeps shine at bay without a trace. I'm not sure if it quite lives up to its 12-hour promise but it does last 9-5 and with a quick re-application you're good to go again. I opted for the translucent shade but there's a range of colours to suit everyone. Oh and did I mention it's under £4? Bargain-licious.
