Maybelline "Matte Maker" Mattifying Powder Review

I recently purchased the Maybelline "Matte Maker" Mattifying Powder at my local supermarket on a whim and I'm not going to lie, I've fallen in love. This is a product that really hasn't had the attention, in the blogging world, that it really deserves.

I picked the powder up in the shade "classic ivory" which is the lightest of the four shades available (with the other three being "nude beige", "natural beige" and "sun beige") and a really decent match for my skin; well done Maybelline.

When it comes to application, I choose to use the Real Techniques Multi-Task Brush from the travel essentials collection. It applies with ease and provides a really even mattifying coverage that isn't cakey in the slightest. It also works as a really good setting powder, as well as mattifying my skin, which is an added bonus.

This powder is as light as air and has a really natural soft finish, that isn't chalky like I sometimes found the likes of Rimmel 'Stay Matte' to be. I found it to last a good four or five hours before I even needed to think about reapplying it, which is a considerable amount of time longer than any other pressed powder I've tried in the past.

This powder retails at under £4 which is so good for the quality of the product. I'd definitely recommend trying it if you're looking for a good budget mattifying powder.

Overall, I adore this product. To be completely honest, I actually prefer it to Rimmel's Stay Matte, which is a total cult product in the blogging world. The finish is much more natural and not chalky in any way and it keeps my skin looking lovely and matte for much longer.
