Rimmel Silky Loose Face Powder

I have been looking for a loose powder for a while now, I know my mum uses a bare minerals one which always looks good on her skin but I just hadn't got round to buying it yet. I was going on the other day to my mum about needing a new powder and she said she had never used this Rimmel one and I could have it, I am so glad she gave me it because I loooove it!
I use powder all the time as I like the finished look of it and because I sometimes get an slightly oily t-zone which I touch up throughout the day, but most powders I have tried look cakey and draw attention to the fact you are wearing makeup. 
This product is so lightweight and adds a shimmery soft look to your face which I really like, it definitely brings out your features a lot more than a basic powder. I use this after my foundation has sunk into my skin, don't use it straight after applying foundation as this makes it look cakey. I use it in the shade 001 Transparent. I would highly recommend trying this product, for £6/7 it isn't too bad.

What loose powders would you recommend?


  1. This looks really interesting, especially about the shimmery texture! Might have to give it a try :) xxx

  2. Powders always give me that cakey look, but this one sounds great! I could really do with a light powder but can't really afford BareMinerals! Great post!


  3. I have always been weary of loose powders as they look so messy but might have to give this one a go.


  4. Hm I think I want to try this! Sounds like something I'd like, thank you!

  5. Looks amazing. I shall try it when I run out of my Etude compact! :)

  6. I LOVE this powder, I haven't been able to find it recently near me, but I'm going to keep a lookout! Great review!
