I don't know where everyone else stands on powder, but I personally find it
essential after applying my foundation and concealer to set it and prevent me from getting too oily throughout the day.
It's a difficult balance as I love to look healthy, and dewy, but I don't want it to cross that line between dewy and oily. Sometimes when I don't apply powder I feel that my foundation seems to come off particularly in the nose area.
It takes me a while to get through a powder as I only use a small amount, however I've been using the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder for a really long time, and if it ain't broke don't fix it!
I really like this powder, it helps to prevent excess oil and helps to prolong how long my foundation lasts. It's also very cheap at £3.99!
I recommend it for anyone how is wanting a powder on the cheap, no need to always buy expensive makeup!
