Perhaps it was just me, but I found this product to be a little average. Maybe I wasn't using the correct brush, I'm not sure but it went on and boy was it obvious! It settled and flaked in all the drier areas on my face (nose, forehead, corner of lips) and the other areas looked semi-okay but still obvious (not what you want from a product like this). Would probably be a lot better on someone with more oily skin and a decent brush.

Hearing a lot about this, I wasn't disappointed when I finally picked some up. I intentionally bought the translucent shade so that I could apply it as a separate setting powder, or finishing step, over top of my daily coloured powder. I usually just apply it to my T Zone and it's perfect!
I absolutely, 100% ADORE this product! My T-zone has the tendency to get quite oily, but not with Rimmel Stay Matte on the case. I have this in the shade "translucent" which actually is translucent (say whaaaaat???) and it is the perfect finishing touch to my face no matter where I'm going or what I'm doing. I just swirl a fluffy powder brush around in it, give the brush a tap to get rid of the excess then buff it all over my face. Oh, and did I mention that it's one of the cheaper powders on the market? Cause it is - score! 11/10 recommend you buy it!
Tips: None at all, this stuff is perfection. I just want to roll around in it haha
I have an oily T-zone, and not the pretty "oooh natural highlighter" sort of way, more of the "you look like you dumped your face in oil" kinda way. Needless to say, I was on the hunt for a powder that not only kept my foundation on all day, but also kept the oil master away. So after seeing this product raved about on YouTube I definitely had to give it a go. And for the past 3 compacts, I NOT been disappointed!
I absolutely love this product. It definitely does what it says and keeps me matte all day - without looking completely flat thought. BONUS! It is very fine and the magical powder particles are like tiny wee fairies that just soak up all the oil - bye bye!
It does not look cakey on my skin and looks great in photos.
Definitely a must have - and at the price, why would you even second guess it?
Tips: Be careful transporting this product as the packaging isn't the sturdiest and the lid does tend to come off - dammit.
Personally I love Rimmell products and when I needed a powder to set down my foundation I bough this in the translucent and oh my. I don't have oily skin but this powder worked wonders on my skin and made my foundation look better and last longer.
Tips: Wrap a hair tie around the product to prevent the lid from coming off in you makeup bag.
I just can't describe the love I have for this product. It is a life saver for my oily skin! I can use it to get rid of my shine and touch my foundation up, and it doesn't look cakey or patchy! It sets my foundation well and is easy to apply! I have it in the translucent shade so that I can use it with all my foundations!
I loved this when I first purchased it, but after a while, I feel like it became too used to my skin? This is great to use during the summer time or if you have oily skin, however, in a strange way this powder made my face go oily at the end of the day and I have combination to dry skin.
I purchased this because I wanted to make my makeup last super long for a formal evening function a few weeks ago and have been using it for the last month. Super happy to see it on BR because it's both my first and favourite matte pressed powder!
I do a lot of in-front-of-camera work and shiny skin is the bane of my existence. This stuff instantly mattifies and, if you get one of the tinted versions, smooths out your skin tone. I prefer using 01 Transparent though, so that the contouring is seen clearly. It pats on white, buti f you blend it with a fluffy brush, it goes transparent. You can try on your hand to see for yourself. I have combination skin, but recommended to a friend with very oily skin (teenage woes). No matter how oily you are, it will mattify. Magic.
It also definitely makes creamy foundations longer lasting. I was using some foundation sticks that have a creamy gel formula and I found they were wiping off quite easily and also shifting around the place. The powder kept it in place flawlessly without any touchups at all for 8h, which I thought was pretty impressive.
I love this, it's so affordable! Complete Rimmel London fan.
Tips: Store with a hairtie around it so the lid doesn't just fly off in your handbag. Also dab it into your skin before lightly blending by skimming a brush over for the best effect.
This good stuff lasts all day I don't go shinny super cheap but good quality. I do have to be light handed with this or it can make me look a little cakey
Tips: Be light handed
For all oily friends out there, this powder is one of the best! Pair it with your favorite foundation and turn matte instantly. I love this product, I love being matte. Love love love!
Tips: Powder the t-zone by dabbing the product in to the face. Then for the least oily places buff it in :)
