Probably the best powder i have tried, i have very oily skin and this powder sets my foundation flawlessly!! I do find i need to touch up after 3-4 hours but i think that is just an oily skin thing rather than product error. It is very affordable. I buy the translucent powder but have also used the acne prone skin version but i think the translucent one works the best.

One day lying in a beauty salon having a facial I noticed the young beautician doing my facial had the most perfect flawless makeup I had ever seen, she look photoshopped! I had to ask her what she was using to get such a perfect complexion. It turned out she used the same foundation as me but she told me the secret was the pressed powder she used on top...Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder. I literally left the salon and headed straight to the nearest mall to grab some. Rimmel is cheap so that is a tick from me but unfortunately this pressed powder didn't give me magical results, in fact it didnt even give me a matte finish. I think it was probably just too light to cope with my skin which was quite oily at the time and within an hour of application my face was shiny. I think for non oily skin this could be a good cheapie to have in my handbag for touch ups. As with all powders I have used I find loose powders give a better coverage and pressed ones really only work well for touch ups during the day.
Tips: Probably too light for oily skin.
I purchased the translucent version of this product as I'm always concerned about powders being too orange or changing the colour of my foundation. But I'm pleased to report that this was ideal and left a smooth and matte finish. It's also a great price as I think I paid $10 or $11, and I often see it on special at Countdown and Kmart.
The only downside is that there's no mirror, however for the price of this product I can let this slide.
Tips: Just be careful when screwing on the lid, as mine cracked a bit.
I brought this on special for around $10. Which is super affordable and in my opinion it works better then some high end powders I havw tired.
I purchased the translucent shade as I have fair skin. The packaging is a let down, a plastic lid that breaks easily but considering the price I can't complain.
The coverage is great, very natutal and because its translucent you dont have to worry too much about spending ages blending in in. I apply it using a big powder brush after using foundation. A few swirls on the pan is all you need, so it will last for ages.
I really love using this powder, I was worried that the chemicals in it would cause me to break out and dry my skin out but no it's been great on my sensitive skin. It can accentuate dry patches on your skin so make sure you moisturise and prime your skin accordingly.
I highly recommend this powder if you haven't use one before as it's affordable and you can't go wrong with the translucent shade.
Tips: Make sure your make up brush is dry as the powder will get a film (hard spot) on it.
A nice light-weighted pressed powder that comes in a light plastic pact. I was gifted this product in the transparent shade. This powder is really matte; good for getting rid of excess shine. When i saw the word matte, yip, i did expect the powder to be a bit dry on me, as i have dry-normal skin. As expected, my skin had a little bit of that powdery make up look on top of foundation. However, powdery-dry patches aren’t too obvious, unless you stare right into the mirror. Although the powder looked a bit dryish on my skin, it gave my skin a smoother look, and had a nice smooth touch to it. It also seemed to have evened out my overall skin complexion. Overall, it didn’t look too cakey, but didn’t look completely flawless either. So, not too bad, but no magic there.
I tried it on top of a couple of different foundations. For me it seemed to work better on the more light-weighted foundations, where it had a smoother finish. Maybe because the thicker foundations tend to make my face sweat a bit, so the powder didn’t work as well, and start to look a little dry and patchy. On the other hand, it looked more matte and natural on top of my usual bb cream. I’m glad i found a better way to use this product for my skin.
The plastic packaging container looks quite fragile... It feels like the lid would break off easily. A good thing about this product is that you do get quite a bit of product , so pretty good value i say for the price.
Amazing price point Consistent performance and compliments a variety of foundations Excellent to use with work make up and keeping oil ‘at bay’ when doing strenuous work Sets make up and does not seem to irritate my sensitive skin
Tips: The flimsy plastic lid easily breaks and comes off- so be careful- if it breaks or falls off it can make a mess in your make up kit
This is a very generous sized pot. I would use this when my liquid foundation went a little over application, and ended up too shined. This product toned it down and can be used under or over other products like highlighter and bronzer. It last and lasts... unless you drop it like I did *sad face*
Tips: Use a big brush for application
