“ Brand: Ruby and Millie / Powders / Type: Foundation / Subcategory: Powder „
Anyone who has not tried the Ruby millie range should go and buy this wonderful product. The Ruby and Millie cheek colour in a perfect compact clear push up stick. The colour is perfectly designed to spread over the cheek bones as it applies on very evenly on to the cheeks with a matt finish. It is very durable and one 10g cheek color can last you a long time in your make up bag.I love the one in RedC40 and have bought about six of these cheek colours ever since i have tried the first one, and i am totally addicted!!! They are priced around£12 and can be ordered from Boots.com mail order or from Boots. And although its abit pricey, i think it is totally worth it as it blended well and have a very good staying power!!!
I've never tried the compact powder so I can't really comment on that, but I do know that I've never thought compact powders were any good, they all seem to go orange and be completely useless as far as I'm concerned, but that's just my opinion. I have used the Ruby & Millie Loose Powder though, and I think it's great. It has a little shaker thing on top so you don't shake out too much powder. It didn't have a powder puff as far as I can remember, but I bought a Ruby & Millie one for about £2 or £3 pounds and it's really big and fluffy and really gets a good finish. So if you're disappointed with the compact you might as well try the loose one, it can only be better.
This, for me, is a very hit or miss range and the compact powder is definitely a miss. Compact, in this case, takes on a whole new meaning - a very small disc of expensive face powder nestling in a designer-produced compact. It looks nice. But it's not worth buying. The sleek and chic silver compact is lovely, but the powder sadly disappointing. It's disppointing because it absolutely doesn't do what powder is supposed to do, set makeup; keep away shine etc etc. And worse, even worse it turns orange. Orange the way that cheap make-up in the 1970s used to be. In other words it's very poor quality. The little puff that comes with it is cheap and nasty too - too tiny to be useful and not fluffy enough to give a good finish
