Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder

Actually, I have been contemplating to make my blog into a beauty blog instead. But then again, I wouldn't want give myself the burden of constantly having the need to buy new stuff so that I can keep my blog alive with interesting products, and reviews.
Therefore, I guess, once in a while, I'll just slip some beauty products in my blog. Sorry to all the guy readers out

So, I'm sure you've all read that I'm a religious user of Bobbi Brown pressed powder.
However, being too stingy on the pressed powder as it cost be a whooping RM110...I thought that searching for an alternative would be wise. Then, I can apply it generously, and carry it everywhere I go.
I'm so afraid of losing my Bobbi Brown pressed powder to the extent, I don't even carry it out with me for touch up. I use it sparingly. And sometimes, I get piss at myself for doing so.

Therefore, after reading promising reviews on Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder. *some even commented that it is at par with MAC powder!! * I dug out 3.99pound, * is dirt cheap, no?* and bought it.

I wasn't expecting much from it though. But, since it is written there, TALC-free, I thought this product is definitely worth a try. I don't know why, but I hate products that contain talc, though most of my products still DO contain talc.
I bought it in colour 005.

Today I went out shopping. Walk around for bout 4hours. And I must say, I'm impressed with it.
My face stayed matte till the end without touch up.
It didn't break me out, therefore, this is definitely a plus point.

I absolutely love it. And I'm sure to be using it more often than my Bobbi Brown's.
For more detailed review, I think you girls can check it out on youtube!

Rimmel always give me a good impression ;)
however, i dont really like pressed powder as it makes my skin dry, so usually i'll go for liquid foundation.

Hayley: Owh, I have dry skin that turns oily at the end of the day. So i usually moisturise my skin very well, slap on liquid foundation, and top it with very minimal powder. I am hoping to try out Rimmel bronzing powder next!

I've always wanted to try this but never bothered because I just have too many powders to finish, both loose and pressed! Good though, another positive review about this. =)

Oh yea, you can try Maybelline's Dream Matte powder also. Another great cheap product. =)

Ting Ting: yup, I was deciding, either this, or the Maybelline. Cause I watch many videos about the maybelline too. But, because maybelline's two way foundation broke me out before, so i thought, why not give rimmel a try first. I'm glad I did!
But maybelline's packaging looks cuter!
