Rimmel Match Perfection Creamy Compact Powder

This is my new favourite powder: Rimmel Match Perfection creamy compact in Ivory (the lightest shade). I must admit this was an impulse buy after struggling to find a 3rd Rimmel item to make the most of a 3 for 2 offer, but i do love a good face powder.

The thing that love about this is the shade. Personally i prefer a pigmented face powder as apposed to a translucent one. I find this works well over foundation to offer a little more coverage, and mattify any oily patches. This powder is also great for those days when you don't want to wear foundation, as it evens out and smoothes the skin nicely with little effort.

The powder works well on any skin type, but the creamy texture of the powder lends itself particularly well to dry skin without caking. I prefer to buff this into the skin, and find it very easy to blend with my Sigma flat top kabuki brush. I've found this powder will last on my face all day, although does include a compartment with a sponge for any on the go application.  

You can find this powder is Boots and Superdrug usually for £5.99
