beauty on a budget: Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder

 every beauty-loving girl with an oilier skin type wants to keep oil under control, right? as the day goes on, there are many ways, of course to do this, but let's be honest: blotting every hour isn't always available or practical, and adding powder repeatedly can create a not-so-pretty, cakey makeup look.

as usual, i'm late to the party, but i've recently started using the popular Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder and yes…i love it!

i've been using  Neutrogena Shine Control powder, and while i love it {it's truly a most fabulous shine-control powder}, i had a Rimmel coupon, so i decided to take a chance on the Stay Matte powder. i'm happy to report it's been working so well! that's always such a relief when trying a new product, right?

of course, i couldn't keep my thoughts to myself ~ i just had to share. if you use this, i'd love to hear what you think about it!

i chose to purchase Stay Matte in Creamy Beige {though i almost went with Transparent}, making the assumption it would be a more sheer finish since all of the available 7 shades fall in the light to medium range {i was right}. i love that this sets my foundation to a matte finish and keeps it that way a good 4-5 hours {just as it claims to do}; i find that not only is the color sheer and very complementary to my dark skin, but the texture is soft, leaves it looking beautiful, and even after a few hours it helps my skin maintain a pretty, soft, glowy-not-greasy look. i also appreciate that it's so affordable {this Rimmel powder is about half the price of Neutrogena's}, so i'll definitely be buying this, possibly in another shade, again.

find Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder at your favorite drug and mass retailer {target, walgreens, cvs, etc}; be sure to visit their website for more info, follow the brand on twitter, instagram and facebook to stay up-to date on all the latest {including, giveaways, promos and more…}
