It just doesn't work for me... Part 1

So I normally tend to only review products I enjoy using but every now and then I come across a product I'm a little dissapointed in. I got to thinking, there's no harm in sharing the reasons why I don't like particular products so I have decided to start a little series called "It just doesnt work for me..." This will just include a mini review on the product and the reasons why it doesnt work for me and my thoughts on who it may work for! I hope you enjoy! 

The first product is the Rimmel London Stay Matte Powder. I tried to love this, I really did. I even had the coloured version (sand 04) and switched to the translucent on the advice of my followers. Unfortunately, both are an absolute fail for me. 

My skin isnt as dry as it used to be but it certainly isn't oily by any means. This powder just sucks any form of dewyness from my skin and leaves it looking flakey and extremely powdery. I haven't had this issue with a powder before. 

It has the tendency to trick me. I've tried it quite a few times as I really wanted to love it like so many people. It would look so good when I first applied it but boom... An hour later and I look like I haven't had water for days! It cakes up and makes my foundation separate. 

Who it would suit: Any one with oily skin (definitely lives up to the matte name!)

Let me know in the comments what you think of this product whether you love it or it just doesn't work for you either! 

Keep smiling!

  3. I am not a fan of Rimmel's powders their lipsticks are divine but other than that I'm not a fan!
    I like that you have been straight forward with your opinion and not just based your opinion on everyone elses thoughts!
