So I have been using this powder for a while now but unfortunately my previous one did that annoying breaking thing, you know, where it ends up in bits in the tin. Joy. So I had to purchase another one

I buy shade Transparent 001 because all the others look orange on my skin (even though I'm not all that pale!). This goes on really light though so it just provides you with a smoothing mattifying effect. All good for £3.99!

What I would say is that this product works better with good brushes. When I used to use cheaper (not so soft ones) it would look a bit too heavy as it would not apply evenly. However now that I have my amazing powder brush from my Academy of Pro Makeup it goes on like a dream and this is what it looks like...

£3.99 well spent! (MAC Studio Fix Fluid on underneath powder).

I'd say well worth a look at if you are looking for a decent drug store powder!


  1. Your skin is amazing, do you even need foundation?;-p

  2. I agree with the comment above!

  3. I've used this for years and always been happy. Ive tried many other brands inbetween, but always come back to this.


  4. I've found that this powder keeps me oil free for almost as long as my Bare Minerals, which is pretty impressive considering the price difference!

  5. I love this powder too! For me the best way to apply this is with a powder puff, I find it goes on cakey with brushes xx

  6. I love looking at your skin! I want mine to be the same. Nice makeup btw :)


  7. you are gorgeous, i want your complexion haha x

  8. I bought this recently.. try not to drop it.. mine broke into a thousand pieces! haha
    The stay matte foundation by Rimmel is pretty good too!

    I just stumbled across your blog and it's super cute! I'm following : )
