I went on a little accidental Superdrug spree around a month ago and whilst waiting for the boyfriend (who was a bit late so it's his fault) I remembered I needed a pressed powder and was up for finding a new pink blusher as for a long time I'd been sporting a peachy cheek.
As a makeup artist one of the questions I get asked most, by friends and colleagues rather than clients, is 'whats a good affordable powder, blusher etc' and normally for a face product, like powder, I usually prefer a high end product so I thought this was a great excuse to try a cheaper one out! After wondering around trying not to pick up the whole shop, I remembered I had heard someone recommend the L'oreal True Match powder. As they had 3 for 2 on L'oreal, I decided to go for that one!
I also picked up a pink blush in 115, a bronzer in 102 (the brunette one) and, because I can't help myself when it comes to nail polish, a Rimmel Pro in Aqua Cool.
I have used the powder everyday since I got it, and I love it! I can't tell it apart from a higher end product, and would put the finish and longevity somewhere in between Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural and Mac Blot powder.
The bronzer, in a word... yuk! Its shimmery and orange, like an old school, year 9 bronzing product from the 90's. Looked great in the packaging, should have swatched before I bought it, but ah well thats what 3 for 2 offers will do to you!
I lurve the blusher, it really is fabo. Gorgeous colour and lasts all day, it takes me two applications on the apples to achieve the intensity of colour I like but thats perfectly acceptable.
(bottom - blush, middle - bronzer, top - powder. Obvs but there you go)
If you look at my last few posts I will be wearing the powder and blusher for sure, not, however, the bronzer!
I'm a big old fan of these polishes because I love the big wide brush for ease of application and the colours always have great pigmentation. I'm not 100% sure on this colour yet but I'm sure it will grow on me.
Hope you liked this post guys and found it useful/interesting!
