Official Focallure Aliexpress store: You can find this powder here 

My thoughts :

PACKAGING

It came in a brand box with a seal, so you know it’s new and not opened before. It had the sticker with the scratch code of authenticity (just like mascara had). The “jar” is made from very sturdy plastic and the puff is of great quality. So I’m happy with the packaging.

 

QUALITY AND HOW IT APPLIES

I got the color 01 Ivory(Fa-15) and it’s perfect for my pale nordic skin. It’s a very light powder that really is perfect for oily skin, it keeps you matt ALL DAY. But…if you have some dry spots, it’s not for you it will not look good(trust me). I apply it with my powder brush from Aliexpress, but you can totally use the puff (I sometimes do it, when I’m at my boyfriend’s house and have forgotten the brush).

Overall I love this powder and have tried the 02 Natural color some years ago, at that time it was too dark for me, but I loved the texture…and I can say it’s still the same great quality. Can’t wait to try more stuff from this brand(I’m slowly getting obsessed)

PROS  
  • long-lasting
  • Perfect for oily skin
  • Affordable
  • Great gift idea
  • Travel friendly
CONS
  • it can “wash” you out
  • Not good for dry skin

Rimmel London “Stay Matte ” Powder -review!

giphy (23)Hello, my darlings! How are you all doing? It’s finally getting a little cooler here, and I can’t be happier about it. So today I want to talk about one of the most beloved drugstore face powders out there and my thoughts about it. The Rimmel London “Stay Matte” Powder, if you haven’t heard about it then you are living under a rock. After almost every”Beauty Guru” was talking about it I decided to give it a try for a whole month, just use this powder as my setting one and see for myself is it worth the hype or not.

My thoughts

The Formula: 3/52000px-3_stars.svg

IMG_20180807_111411_789Okay, so it has a scent..and, not a pleasant one. It smells like a cheap laundry detergent, is it too harsh? Maybe, but I just can’t with it. Another surprising thing that I didn’t expect is the powder has very fine glitter in it and I don’t know how to fell about it. It does stay matte on the face for 4/5 h without retouch, that’s pretty cool.

 

 

Shade: 4/5

I have it in shade  001 transparent, and it looks good on me. Nothing really to say about this particular shade. It goes on translucent, I like it!

Overall: 3,5/5 stars

35-5-stars

Maybe my expectations were too high or this powder isn’t for me, but I’m not blown away. It’s average, plus I do have a big problem with scented powders and it is very scented. It does the job, but I do prefer my essence matt maker better.
