This was the first setting powder I ever tried, so have never compared it as I have repurchased every time. Love this powder, it does not look powdery and sets my makeup perfectly. Lasts me a good 6 months so I definitely say its worth the money, although it is very cheap any way

I absolutely love this powder! I use it with a Real Techniques duo fibre face brush as it doesn't apply too much of the product. This powder makes my face look matte but not flat, and helps my makeup stay on all day. This is a great powder for the price!
I have been using this powder in translucent, for about six months. I absolutely love the way it sets my foundation. It gives my face a really nice finish and stays on all day! It's a great price and easy to find. My only gripe the packaging is a bit flimsy.
Tips: Use a good brush and take your time applying it.
This is the kind of product that I use until the very last crumbly bits and then eagerly delve into the new one I have waiting in line! It's such a great setting powder for my foundation and the finish is great! That being said, I have recently discovered Maybelline's Matte Maker pressed powder and the finish is ever so slightly better. I say this because I feel that the Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder has a very light shimmer in it (you may not think this at all), where as the Maybelline one is true matte (in my opinion) and it applies more even as well! But as far as the Rimmal Stay Matte Pressed Powder goes, it was the first Matte Pressed Powder that I owned and I have loved it very much and I would still recommend it to a friend without a doubt. Amazing value for your money!
Tips: Using a large fluffy brush or a kabuki brush etc, dust an even amount of Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder onto the brush, tap off any excess and then pat lightly onto your face. Start from the center and move outwards. At the edges use ,light circular motions to buff out all the edges to prevent a cakey look or a foundation line!
I use this product everyday to set my foundation as i have oily skin i use the translucent one and it definitely does what it says! my skin stays matte and i dont find myself needing to touch up on powder. It is also cheap and you can get it from lots of places (kmart, the warehouse, farmers ect)
I have been using Rimmel's stay matte powder for about 2 years now. I was in desperate need of a setting powder, but I was (and still am) a student. I saw this at the warehouse and it was the cheapest one I could find, so I decided to give it a whirl, and I've never looked back!
I use the shade translucent 001 for my natural skin tone, and there isn't a shade suitable for me when I am fake tanned.
I use a large, fluffy powder brush to apply the product all over my face to set my foundation. A little product goes a long way, if you use too much it can look cakey. It is definitely mattifying. My skin type is oily, pimple-prone and extremely sensitive, so I do need to be careful about what I apply to my face. The powder reduces the oiliness of my skin, so obviously keeps my skin matte as it says it does. If I do get a bit oily later in the day (or night) I can just apply a small amount to the affected areas, and it decreases the oiliness. The produst last about 6 hours before having to reapply, but this would depend on how oily your skin is.
I like the simple, clear packaging of stay matte powder. The clear, large writing also makes it obvious what the product is without having to dig all through your make up. what the Obviously the product has a powdery consistency. Stay matte powder doesn't really have a fragrance. It just smells 'make-upy' and not unpleasant.
I will definitely be repurchasing this product when I run out. It is very effective, so I would also definitely recommend it to others.
Tips: Look out for stay matte powder on special at the Warehouse and Farmers
I bought this after hearing and reading endless great reviews. I use it everyday, applying in with a powder brush all over my face. I occasionally reapply later in the day. I find that it makes my skin matte, but not cakey looking.
My only gripe is the packaging. The lid is a clear bit of plastic that just pulls off - it does not twist on or anything - meaning that it is quite flimsy and prone to breaking. I have cracks in the lid even though I am careful with it.
I do find that you hit pan quite quickly on this, but then it takes a long time to use the rest of the powder.
It's so good that I bought three backups when they were on sale on Asos.
Yes this product does exactly what it says it will. Eliminates shine, smooth application. From the description it sounds like this is to be used on its own, however I use mine over the top of liquid foundation - it locks in the look and takes away the shine. Pretty cheap and lasts for a while.
Tips: Use over the top of liquid foundation for full coverage, to lock in the look and take away the shine that liquid foundation can give you.
This is perfect for setting your foundation or turning it to a nicer matte finish. I dust it on and do an extra layer around my nose to set my foundation so it doesnt slide. Very light weight and doesnt cake up or flake off on me, which is a plus. Sometimes if im in a rush ill use it just on my face without makeup to take away some of the oil/shine to have a more fresher look. I paid $8 on trademe so well worth it. Its a must in my beauty kit.
My holy grail of powders. Apart from the fact my son loves to eat it, this product is flawless. It sets my foundation no problem, doesn't appear chalky, is the perfect shade. Just love love love it. I use a general powder brush and apply after foundation and it seems to last all day. It doesn't appear chalky if applied twice, easily blends into the skin if worn alone otherwise it absorbs into the foundation giving a matte almost make-up-less appearance. Personally i like to apply a lot, as in i swirl the brush with the product each time i go to set a new area which ends up being about 8-10 times and then gently buff off any excess product. Definitely something worth trying if you haven't found a decent powder or something with a cheap price tag as this definitely lasts longer than some other powders ive brought that are between $25-$30. I do have dry skin so my face is pretty matte anyway but it stops any unwanted shine from the foundation.
Tips: Definitely apply with a brush and wait a couple minutes to set then buff off excess to stop caking or an unnatural looking finish.
