Stay Matte Pressed Powder

I saw recs for this product and decided to try it for my combi- oily skin. The price point was great and the Color matched . However on the face , I feel that the powder is a little rough , it does not feel luxurious. The shade also looks a tinge grey. It does work as a good powder without looking too thick. The packaging is also not too convenient to use .

I bought this powder because it's kind of a classic for those hoping to keep their skin from getting shiny. Since a lot of people had success with it, I thought I'd give it a try. The price is great with this powder and it's easily accessible. However, I just found it to be okay. I found the scent to be a bit strong and chemically and I didnt find this powder really did any better than most other powders I've used. Furthermore, I found the packaging to feel a bit flimsy and my powder kept developing hard pan that I had to scrape off. When I touched up with powder midday, it also looked quite cakey and I could visibly see powder sitting on my skin. I didn't finish this powder up and I don't think I'll repurchase. I've since had better luck with Maybelline Fit Me loose setting powder and I would also consider going back to Essence All About Matte before this product. This product does seem to work really well for some but for me, it just didn't do what I had hoped.

ScandalEYES Curve Alert Mascara

Rimmel has some great mascaras, this one included! The fat pipe cleaner style wand yields natural looking, voluminous results. I should note that I have pretty decent lashes naturally, and that I prefer formulas that create fanned out, full looking lashes (without clumping)...which this mascara does nicely! I use the shade "Black 001", which is more of a soft black. I normally hate over-sized mascara wands, but this one coats lashes quickly, and the formula is buildable, and I end up with soft looking, long, full lashes. The formula is definitely on the dry side, which normally I don't like, but this is an exception. I don't experience any flaking or smudging, and it's easy to remove at night. A lot of maracas cause my lashes to fall out (I wish I knew why), but the ScandalEyes mascaras keeps them long, full, and healthy. I will continue to repurchase!
