Good pressed powder, not cakey or too dry, but genuinely gives you a lovely matte finish. It’s okay to use if you’ve got dry skin, it won’t make you look like an old woman. Lasts ages too

I have used this pressed powder for many years now. It is very easily accessible and well priced which helps!
I find the powder doesn't go orange on my skin when I have worn it for a while. It does help mattify my skin as my skin can get a bit oily (especially working in an air conditioned office) and it does have pretty good, easily built up coverage.
I don't often wear a full face but I use this powder on top of BB cream when I want to feel a bit more "dolled up but still casual". It stays on for most of the day - or night if I am out on the town. It doesn't feel cakey either.
Only face powder I use it’s really good and cheap! Good value for money, keeps you matte for most the day.
I used this powder a lot last year and I found it to be a little drying around the T-zone of my face but flawless on my cheeks. For me that wasn’t ideal, but it was more than I expected from the cheap price. I don’t recommend putting this on areas with a thin layer/minimal makeup as it tends to make it look like another layer of skin. Other than that, it’s a good powder, keeps away the shine.
This setting powder is really good value and still delivers a good level of matte finish results. I have naturally dry skin and generally favour a dewy look but when I like my makeup to last all day and stay on I reach for this product. I enjoy that it is a solid powder rather than a loose product which makes travelling with it very easy. I use this once a week and have hardly made a dint in it!
I loved this powder! It made my skin look great! I used it on the daily till I dropped it and I shattered. And the best thing is it that it's affordable as well! It didn't make me feel cakey in any way!
This is the powder I use daily. I have a supply I’m using up but will have to find an alternative if Rimmel don’t go cruelty free before they’re used up. My one downer is it doesn’t give me all day oil control, which it doesn’t claim, I just wish it did. But for under $10 on special you can’t really complain. I do love how it sets my foundation and gives me a bit of extra coverage but doesn’t feel caked, even if I reapply later in the day.
Great wee matte powder for keeping away the shine, just dust over your foundation, takes a few seconds to apply. Keeps away the shine. Very economical buy, lasts for ages.
I use this powder almost daily to set my makeup and it is great! Very lightweight and lasts well. When my skin is fairly dry though, the matte powder makes it look a little too dry/cakey. For the price though, it is an amazing product!
I can’t remember how many of these powders I’ve used up in my oily teen years, but were a few for sure. I’ve tried other powders back then, but always came back to this one, in translucent. It kept my oily face in a good shape for most of the day, the powder is so fine, never looked cakey on me and it never had hard pan(where oil sticks to powder and you need to scratch it off, so you can pick up powder again). The only negative I have to say is the packaging, it’s very cheaply made, can’t travel with it easily as the lid screws off in the makeup bag, but the affordable price reflects this, you can’t expect quality packaging for such a low price. I’d always pick quality product before quality packaging and you definitely get that with this little drugstore gem. I can’t use it anymore as my skin is on the dry side, but this is definitely best pick for an oily teenager/young adult. :)
