Rimmel Stay Matte powder

I've been hearing about this pressed powder for a while now and I just had to try it out. So I ordered it from this site called Slassy, as I couldn't find this shade in the Rimmel London counter. Shade 10 - Warm Honey is the darkest shade they have. But as you can see it's pretty light for my skintone. 
Left to Right: Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Dark, Rimmel Stay Matte in Warm Honey, Mac Studio Fix in NC45.
Compared to my Mac's, this shade is warm toned. The powder blends very well and it does leave your skin very matte. It has a slight cosmetic smell. If you don't like scented powders then you might not like this one. It gives a sheer - medium coverage.

The packaging of this product is very flimsy. The lid keeps coming off and it's breakable. It doesn't come with a mirror or an applicator.

Without flash.
It's a good drugstore product. Good for its price. Only downfall is that it has only few shades. If you are on the darker side like me, you wont get your shade. 2.5/5.

Bioderma Sensibio H2O

I finally got my hands on this baby! This product can only be found in France and maybe in the UK. While searching, I found out that this online site sells this product in India. And they also have a shop in Thane. Before I buy a product, I always like to see it and then buy, so I went to the store instead of ordering it online.

Bioderma Sensibio H2O is a water base make-up remover/cleanser. This one that I got is for sensitive skin. You also get one for combination and oily skin which comes in a bottle with a green cap. You can use this water on your face and even on your eyes. It is a very mild cleanser. It has a very mild fragrance. You don't really smell it, unless you really sniff on the cotton. Haha! This product is amazing. It takes away all the make up on your face. If you have any waterproof make up then it might take you a little while but it does take off all make up. The water gets absorbed into the skin pretty quickly and it does not leave your skin dry.

You get this product in three different sizes. You get a smaller, travel sized one and a 500ml bottle. I got the medium sized bottle because the shop didn't have the bigger one. I think it's a good size as I can just carry it in my travel bag. This one also doesn't break me out my skin. The only down fall is the price. It is a little pricey for the amount you get. But the product is totally wort it. I see why this has been a hyped product for such a long time. I'll give it a 4/5.
