L'Oreal True Match Foundation & Rimmel Stay Matte Powder

L'oreal True Match Foundation Ivory
L'oreal True Match Foundation Ivory Swatch

After a day of non stop shopping I had forgotten that I haven't bought myself any foundation and I only had very little money left so I decided to look around in the Superdrug store for a cheaper foundation than my normal everyday one and I came across the L'Oreal True Match Foundation.

I have quite pale skin so I picked up this foundation in the shade Ivory and it only cost me at least £9.99 so I thought why not! I'm always trying out different foundations. The foundation is very yellow toned and it made my skin look so bad that I looked like I was ill or coming down with something. The foundation hasn't got a high amount of coverage.. in fact I think it's a light coverage foundation. A light coverage foundation is pointless to me because I do have A LOT to cover up and I prefer medium to full coverage foundations.

You can choose to build up the foundation but I found out that no matter how much you apply it still comes off very quickly throughout the day and I wasn't impressed with this at all. I personally wouldn't purchase this foundation again but I would recommend this to anyone that has yellow undertones and would like a foundation with a sheer/light coverage though! I think I'm going to stick to my MAC Studio Fix Fluid or Revlon Color stay for now on unless I can find a new foundation.

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder Transparent

A few months ago I got fed up with the everyday powder that I was using (the Max factor Creme Puff) and I was looking to try out some new face powders and I came across the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in the shade 'Transparent' which I think is the lightest shade they do.

The Rimmel Stay Matte powder is really good! It doesn't make your face look cakey and it does make you look quite natural as it's not a colored powder. On the back of the powder box it says it gives you up to 5 hour shine control and I must say that I totally agree with this statement. I find that I only need to top it up at least once or twice a day to keep the makeup at bay. It really does last 5 hours! I'm so impressed by this powder as you can probably tell because I've nearly used all of it up, oops!

I think the powder is best suited to those that have combination to oily skin because it would make dry skin look a bit cakey. The powder is perfect for me and it's one of my favorite powders to use! I always prefer to apply the powder with a powder brush rather than a powder puff.
 I really urge anyone to try this out, you won't regret it! You never know you might just love it!

Have you tried any of the products mentioned?
