Rimmel Insta Fix and Matte Powder Review and Photos

Rimmel Insta Fix and Matte Powder
Last year Rimmel released the popular Insta Skin Tint which was the first in their new line suitably named Insta. This year the brand has taken the #Insta family to a whole new level with the launch of their Insa Fix & Go Setting Spray, Four Colour Correcting Palettes, Three Contour Sticks and a Setting Powder.

Now I'm already a big fan of the setting spray as it's a great multitasker for Summer, but I have to say the new Insta Fix & Matte Face Powder looked like my kind of product considering the Stay Matte and Match Perfection Loose Powder are already staples in my makeup bag. So here are my thoughts...
Price
The Insta Fix & Go Powder retails for £4.99 for 8g of product whereas the Stay Matte Powder retails for £3.99 for 14g of product.
Packaging 
Now although you get more for your money with the original stay matte, the Insta powder definitely has nicer sturdier packaging.
Application
This translucent powder is finely milled and smooth to the touch, it's also slightly scented too. I've been using this with a small fluffy brush after foundation and concealer to mattify my nose, chin and eye area and this really does work wonders at reducing any shine and not looking cakey! You also don't get the dreaded white cast in flash photos either.
Longevity
This did help my make-up stay matte for a good 5 hours, however, if you're out and about I would recommend popping this in your bag for on the go touch-ups as per the packaging.
Overall Thoughts
I've really become rather fond of this translucent powder lately as it's compact, mattifying, non-cakey and it's just so easy and a pleasure to use. Yes, it isn't as great value for money compared to the stay matte powder, but it's still affordable and it works just as well if you're after a more universal setting powder that's travel-friendly too.

I award the Rimmel Insta Fix and Matte Powder a 4.7 out of 5
