This was the first powder I used and at the time I quite liked it, however now that I've tried other products I find this to be not as great as others. It applies well and it IS mattifying and does it's job, however I have oily skin and it isn't oil free so I find it makes my skin even oilier or it just basically slides off! It isn't terrible but it doesn't last all day for me and that's the main reason why I use powder - to make my foundation last all day! So not a winner for me! Also the packaging is a bit cheap and it breaks really easy which is quite annoying

I've only recently discovered this powder, its great for my skin, which is very oily, and it keeps it matte most of the day. Its a great price, and I use the translucent colour which suits me perfectly.
Tips: Don/t use too much as it tends to be cakey, and stock up when you see it , as it's always sold out when I go past the Rimmel stands!
I do really like this - it's affordable, provides a really nice finish and is easy to apply. I'm rather (*coughverycough*) pale, so I use Translucent, which is actually not a true translucent, so provides a little coverage which is nice. It's a yellow-based colour as well, which suits my skin perfectly. I love this for using everyday, when I wear just concealer and a bit of blush, as it looks super natural. You do have to be a bit more careful when using over foundation, as too much can make the foundation look cakey, but just a little will set everything and still look natural.
The only downside to this for me is that it doesn't last super long on my T-zone. I have normal/combo skin, so not super oily, but I really only get a few hours out of this before my nose especially looks a bit shiny. So that's a pain, but for the price I'm not going to complain too much!
Tips: If you want to get this even cheaper, you can get it on ASOS for about $8 with free shipping - super cheap!
This is the only matte powder I have ever tried and I really love it I used it with the matching foundation wasn't a fan of the foundation but this powder did a fantastic job my face stayed matte looking the whole day and it set my makeup really well it did not move around my face at all still looked great 9 hours later super impressed I applied with my beauty blender cheapie dupe I think it looks best applied that way on my skin, not a fan on the packaging it not the easiest to open i find but great product! Will last ages.
