SHADE;SILKY BEIGE: Shade 005 is a beige with pink tones that completely goes with my skin tone.

???????????????????????????????

PERFORMANCE: The texture of the powder is smooth and smooth.It isn’t chalky.I use a large fluffy brush to dust it on my face for a finished look and it doesn’t’ look powdery or OTT .The best part is that it doesn’t alter the shade of your foundation.

I have oily T-zone and this perform wonderfully in keeping the oil at bay for about 4-5 hours making my face look fresh and clear.Regarding the claims of minimizing the appearance of pores,i feel that it does hide pores to some extent leading to a flawless skin.

L-R: bare face,with foundation,rimmel pressed powder dusted on

I will call it a light coverage powder even though it completely gets invisible on skin but it does even out the skin tone.

PROS:

  • Affordable.
  • helps in setting the liquid foundation.
  • provides a natural look.
  • does minimize the appearance of pores.
  • blends well.
  • doesn’t look chalky.
  • keeps the face shine free for almost 5 hours.

 

 

CONS:

  • the packaging is flimsy and not at all travel friendly.
  • no mirror or sponge provided.

RATING: 4.5/5

RECOMMENDATION: This is a must have product for combination/oily skins.At the price tag it is available,i think it is definitely a steal and the overall performance is just great.
