Rimmel Stay Matte Powder Review

Hello my beauties!

How are you?
 The holidays are getting closer and closer and I would love for you to tell me what you have planned to do. And I mean from where you are going to spend the holidays, to the outfit you're wearing to dazzle the crowds and the makeup you have on your mind for so many special nights to come!

But before that, let me tell you about a face powder I was hearing constanly on youtube and reading on blogs, that I had to try it myself.

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder


As a girl with a combination/oily skin I am always looking out for the perfect powder that will "seal" my foundation and cover my face with this invisible veil that will make my skin looks dewy but matte, natural but carefully made up. I know, this sounds a little bit dreamy to you, but a girl can always hope.
Day after day, for the last two months, while watching my favourite beauty youtubers, I noticed that most of them kept talking about this powder and placing it next to high end products. They were talking how this powder keeps your face matte for so long that no other, even high end, can.

So I decided to give it a go. As you may know, in Greece, there are no Rimmel products, so I had to order it online. This time I used for the first time the fantastic feelunique.com and with free delivery I got this baby for 5.19 euros! 
I chose the shade Transparent beacause I wasn't sure how pigmented they are.
But it is rather whitish although it blends well with your skin and becomes invisible after a while. 
The powder does what it says, to my big surprise! Normally, two hours after I have powdered my face, I would need to blot my face or re-powder or something. But with this one, I didn't  have to do that not before 5-6 hours which is amazing considering I have extremely oily T-zone!
I love this powder! It is not cakey, it has a nice powdery smell, does not cloge my pores and lasts a lot!

I would totally recommend this powder to those you struggle with oily skin and shiny T-zone as it is amazing! It is ridicullously cheap so you won't regret buying it even if you don't like it. Unlikely though!

Have you tried this powder? Or you have another favourite to keep the shine away?
Please do tell!!!

As always....
stay healthy & beautiful

MAC Oil Control Lotion Review

Hello my beauties!

How are you? I am sure you are hot hot hot! And times like this you are trying to make the best out of your makeup. I know. I struggle myself with that too.

I am trying to find the best moisturiser or primer that leaves my skin matte hot days like these.
During my search I came across to this oil control lotion by our beloved MAC.



As you can see it is light textured and a bit "runny". The girl in the store said that will keep my skin matte and that I wouldn't need to wear moisturiser under it when doing my makeup as it has moisturising elements on its own.

My opinion on this lotion is not so good as someone would expect. 
Although it felt quite comfortable on my skin and absorbed quickly, I noticed not the slightest difference on my skin, my makeup or my T-zone. I was shiny 1 1/2 hour later tops.

And imagine I didn't wear it the last days that the weather is trying to kill us with heat and humidity.

This does not change my mind on the quality of MAC cosmetics, they are one of the best!
But I did thought that they would do good work on the sensitive subject of oil & shine control.

Have you tried it? 
What is our opinion?
Which one is your best anti-shine primer?

La Roche -Posay Effaclar Review

Hello my beauties!

How are you? I hope the breeze the last few days relaxed you beacause hot days are coming!

Today I am going to talk to you about two products I tried for the first time. One old and classic and one new and fantastic. 
La Roche-Posay Effaclar Gel Moussant & La Roche Posay Effaclar Mat.



1. Effaclar Moussant Gel
    Purifying foaming gel for oily sensitive skin 

My skin is combination with oily T-zone and summer things get worse. I am always on the hunt for a really good cleansing gel and a very good moisturiser that will hydrate my skin but keep it mat and beautiful. And, girls, I think I found them. 
I have been trying them the last 5 days, in a sample I got from the pharmacy, and I am really happy, especially with the moisturiser, because that is one of the hardest thing to find. But let's start one by one.

I am pretty sure you all know Effaclar Moussant Gel. I did too but somehow I never got to buy it. 
It feels really gentle on my skin, clearing all the makeup at the end of the day and refreshing my skin in the morning. It eliminates impurities and excess sebum leaving the skin clean and fresh without feeling it dry like many cleansing gels for oily skin do. The thing that we have oily skin does not mean that we need to dry it out, we just have to balance it and Effaclar Moussant Gel felt to my skin that way.
Soap-free - Alcohol-free - Colorant-free - Paraben free.

2. Effaclar Mat
    Sebo-Regulating Moisturiser, Anti-Shine, Anti-Enlanrged Pores


This is a new moisturiser added to the Effaclar family. Moisturizes and mattifies the skin immediately. After 5 days of use my skin is refined, pores are tightened and sebum production slowed down.
When applied you feel your skin moisturised  but at the same time so soft and almost like powdery as the moisturiser sets. you can apply you foundation just seconds later and trust me it is an excellent makeup base. It is almost like a moisturising primer!
I am really excited with this moisturiser as it is what I have been looking for. A light moisturiser for my skin, especially now at summer, but that really moistures my skin and not drying out. And of course an excellent base for my makeup as I don 't want to put extra stuff on my face.






Well, this is my review on Effaclar Moussant Gel & Effaclar Mat. Have you tried one of them? Want to share other secrets on oily skin?

Stay healthy & beautiful
