and Hello Rihanna’s secret weapon to Red Carpet skin – INVISIMATTE!

  

From a sufferer of eczema my entire life (and I will do a story on this when I pluck up the courage to post pictures of being covered in head to toe in eczema), finding a face powder to set my makeup and blot any shine away that doesn’t look cakey, let alone sit in the creases really is so important.

As rule of thumb, if you suffer from dry skin you wouldn’t tend to want to powder much, if at all.  But, the way that technology has moved on today enables us dry skin sufferers to blot any shine we may have in oilier areas (such as our t-zone) and also blur any imperfections away – goodbye visible pores – clever stuff!!

We all love RiRi who brought her brand out called FENTY BEAUTY.  Well… I am just discovering this brand and it does not disappoint! Yes I know I am so last season and obviously not ‘on fleek’ (as the cool kids say), but when you have a 1.5year old baby this is why.  But I am here now, and won’t be leaving the Fenty Beauty ride anytime soon.  I had to try out one of her best sellers and it’s of course her infamous INVISIMATTE blotting powder https://youtu.be/SiKLN_-Qjc4LN_-Qjc4

At first glance I thought oh no not another white powder, not another flash back situation (where the face can turn white in pictures – a huge problem across a lot of brands), and I really am not a fan of sponge applicators in packaging.

However, this is sooooooooo different.  It has a pore-diffusing complex that absorbs the shine and gives you the most flawless and matte finish leaving you completely photo-ready! It can be used on ALL skin tones (this is amazing for the beauty industry and for my forever growing heavy kit that I drag around on jobs).  When I am on shoots (which can last up to 15hours a day), keeping the model/actors face matte is really important.  What I usually find is that the more powder you add the worse the skin can look as the powder can sit in fine lines etc but with INVISIMATTE you can apply as often as you want and it won’t cake.  (Top Tip: you don’t need to apply very much).

The packing is great.  It closes shut and stays shut.  The mirror is a decent size and best of all the portable brush that is designed to be used with this product attaches to the front of the case by a magnet so that you can ALWAYS touch up on the go (how clever)!!!

GOODBYE SPENDING AGES ON FILTERING YOUR FACE ON SOCIAL MEDIA AND HELLO INSTANTLY FILTERED FACE ON THE GO!! OMG!

The only thing I do need now is the Portable Touch Up Brush to apply this with….. that will be my next treat!

If you have any favourite blotting powders please feel free to share the love and comment below… and if there are any other RiRi products that I must treat myself to then please also share the love….

Have a fabulous week!!
