|Stay Matte Pressed Powder – 001 Transparent|
So this is another cult beauty product in the blogosphere and I’m sure you’ve heard about it if you follow any of the bigger names in the business. I’ve heard it fairs better than most top end powders!
Now being a girl on a budget I can’t afford those top end brands to compare but I have to say that I adore this product! The back of the product states “Up to 5 hours natural shine control with natural minerals. Helps minimise the appearance of pores.” And this does all that. I can’t go out with makeup on and not use this. It’s my new must have. I touched pan with my first and immediently ran out to get my second. I tend to find this does seem to disappear in Boots and Superdrug quite quickly so do pick up your shade when you see it. Who knows if you’ll find it when you need it!
But enough about me and more about the product. I definitely do feel as though this minimises my pores. However, the main reason I love it so much it that it seems to blend and bring all my make up together. I personally like to put this on last over my blush and contour as I feel it sets it in a way and makes it seem more natural and seamless. It has a very very minimal coverage however as I like to use it last I’ve gone down the transparent route. As for transparent, it still has a fairly light beige tint on it which might not work on very dark skin, which is quite disappointing as you’d expect a transparent to work on all skin types, however let me know if it does work. I’d love to know. They do have various beige tints in the range which I’ve yet to test but wanting to have a go playing with. However the range is quite limited which I find a shame. At £3.99 on the Boots website if you can find a shade that works for you or try the transparent. Get it! It’s amazing!
