Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder

Yesterday I had to pop to the supermarket with mum, and lately I've been really unhappy with my skin, as my foundation just comes off within a few hours, even with base coat and concealer.  I've heard that a good thing to do is seal your liquid foundation with a pressed powder, and as we passed the makeup section I thought I'd pick one up.  I think that matte makeup looks great, but I've had bad experiences in the past with matte makeup, which made me spottier than if I didn't wear makeup at all!  However, this Stay Matte pressed powder from Rimmel is made with minerals, so it doesn't block pores as badly.

The product is a significant size, around the size of my palm, and cost £4.99.  It's slightly annoying seeing as it didn't come with a makeup sponge/brush so I bought some separate, 4 for £2 which isn't too bad.  The packaging is nice but I have a feeling that it's flimsy and will break if it's rattled round in my bag too much, as the plastic part is pretty raised from the powder.

I used it this morning, and the coverage and finish was actually really great.  It stayed for a few hours (the packaging says it lasts 5 hours) and refreshed it at lunch time, so it lasted well.  I bought it in 001, which is the palest colour, and apparently transparent.  It was a little pale for me but you can always use bronzer over the top, better to be pale than orange!  Altogether I think the products it pretty great, worth the money and I'm glad I resolved my foundation problem!
