Clarifying, anti-shine powder with Pureskin™ complex
It hasn’t replaced my foundation but it can be used on top of your usual foundation or even on it’s own. On nights out, I would use a different powder with a fuller coverage on nights out but this Rimmel one is just a nice addition to my make up collection and one that I use frequently during the day. The powder goes on translucent, there’s no colour in it so it’s like a one-shade-fits-all type of thing, which is a good thing because you don’t have to spend ages trying to find the perfect shade to match you (or frustratingly, get it wrong and waste money).
The Clear Complexion Powder is perfect for every day wear because it’s not heavy or cakey. It minimizes shine and with a light brush sweep, it will mattify the areas of your face which are inconveniently glossy – so that would be an oily T-Zone for me. It also works great as a product to set BB creams, concealer and liquid foundations for a matte and flawless finish.
For the price, it’s a product worth trying. With a cheap price comes cheap packaging design. This is to be expected but the thing is, the lid does not stay on so it is difficult to carry it around in your hand bag all day. I usually keep it in the inner side compartment or put it in a little make up bag. Depending on how much you apply to your face, it can last up to 3-5 hours but sometimes I would find myself re-applying after 2. It doesn’t last very long on the skin but it’s easy enough to touch up every few hours or so. I don’t expect the budget powder to last more than that anyway. As long as it does it’s job to reduce the oily parts of my face, I’m happy!
