Drugstore Make-up

Rimmel Silky Loose Powder

As you may already know, I am on a mission to find some affordable yet great products. Unfortunately that means I tend to waste a lot of money on rubbish. But occasionally, very occasionally, I come across something worth mentioning. One such product is Rimmel Silky Loose Face Powder.

I have combination skin so my poor chiney chin chin requires significant powdering (excuse the Three Little Pigs reference)

I like the texture of this powder, it doesn’t feel drying and it’s definitely silky. I apply it with a powder puff, rolling it into my skin to avoid exaggerating pores. It’s transparent so it can be used over every foundation, regardless of the shade.

It kept my face matte for about 5 hours before I touched up, which is good going for a “drugstore” product. It had a satin finish and didn’t cake.

I find myself reaching for this powder on a regular basis. However  I would avoid it like the plague if you are planning on being papped as it photographs white, thank you Titanium Dioxide (I assume!)

It’s not the most finely milled powder I have every tried but it’s great all the same. It’s very close in quality to my Make Up For Ever Loose Powder (not the HD). I shall be repurchasing!

Have you tried this powder?
