For my often dry skin, this product isn't ideal but I do like it for its mattifying powers over my few oily spots. I use the transparent shade so I don't have to worry about the colour matching my skin which is brilliant. A downside for this powder is that it has a crap load of sparkles. For a matte powder, doesn't the sparkles counteract its purpose? Without the sparkles, this product would be almost perfect. Overall, for its price, this is a very decent product.

I love using this product! reasonably priced and is great! I use over liquid foundation and it saves my skin from getting oily! I touch up throughout they day definitely am going to buy again!
Like most of us, we can't always afford the most expensive product on the shelf, well sometimes you don't need too!
The Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder is perfect for just that, low price (only $16.95) and easy to get your hands on! I do notice it goes pretty quickly, but when your wanting to duck in to your local Farmers and grab a great powder before payday or your next big splurge on high-end products this is for you!
Tips: I apply with a big powder brush all over the face, I then go back over any oily areas (for myself, nose & chin) with a sponge and dab a little extra on.
For a cheap-er powder it seems to do its job well! I use this to set my eye primer as I have terribly oily eye lids and it really helps to set it all day! It gives something for my eye shadow to cling onto, and since I have started doing this there has been no creasing! Even with cheaper eye shadows. It doesn't work as good when I use my FitMe powder so that's made me think that it is this powder that is helping! There are probably other powders that do the same thing, but this is it for me :) Also quite good for setting my foundation in my oilier moments haha
Tips: Wait a couple minutes for everything to dry before putting the powder on! :) Foundation, concealer, eye primer etc.. Fill in your eyebrows in the mean time
So far I've used the 000 translucent & 003 peach glow. I'm currently using the 003 peach as after using the 000 translucent for the past few months I found it too pale. I apply it with a powder brush. Originally I applied it with a pressed powered sponge, but found it didn't set my make-up very good. Both do what they say they do. While they only last 5 hours, (as stated on bottom), a midday make up check isn't that big a deal.
Also are pron to crack & the lid doesn't screw on very well
Tips: Wait about 10 to 15 mins after applying before seeing leaving home, as when you first apply it, you skin looks really pale.
I picked this up because I wanted a spare powder to carry in my handbag/gym bag for touch ups. I really like this powder. It touches up your makeup without it going cakey. The finish is matte but not flat. I am not keen on the packaging but the product is very inexpensive so I guess you can't have everything.
Tips: A little goes a long way and if you are using this for touch ups and you're oily, blot first.
After watching Shaanxos review about the Rimmel stay matte powder I went scouting for this. They didnt have any in my colour so i ended up buying the translucent colour which i was told was great for all skintones as it was a clear powder.
After applying my foundation I use a fluffy brush to pat it onto my skin before brushing it off, you only need a small amount and if you use too much powder it starts caking. Its a great powder to apply on your T zone if you get oily there during the day. I also like to put this over my bronzer if ive added too much. I cant remember how much i picked this up for as i brought alot of other products. It comes in a round container which is easy to open, the screw has broken so i cant securely close it which is a let down because ive onlu had this for 2 weeks.
The product works well and its very cheap, I want to buy the stay matte powder in my shade to try too.
I love this powder. It works so well over top of my match perfection foundation! It even works well with the 'powder before foundation technique' which i was surprised by as its a pressed powder. It leaves a nice matte finish all day. I do notice that after doing things like being at the gym i do start to get oily but i put that down to sweat and hard work ;) overall this powder is really great and affordable and cant go wrong with it! Go buy it :)
I was really surprised by this product. I got it when i left my powder at home and i really needed it… probably not the best time to experiment but i took a gamble anyways and got it. I was so excited to see that this cheap powder had an amazing matte coverage but was still lightweight considering how good the coverage was. I would definitely by this product again!
After hearing rave reviews over this product I decided to try. I am normally a dewy skin girl but still wanted to give it a go. I can happily say I love!! it sets my foundation really well and stays on all day. keeps away all the shine that can generate and even on a wearing to the gym I came home and my whole face was still perfect. normally really shinny and melted with other powders. the price is amazing I would normally spend 2 or 3 times the price and not be so happy. there is a great colour selection and I found one that is perfect for me. will now be a fix in my makeup collection now. defiantly give it a go if you have been thinking about it.
Tips: be careful with the packaging I can tell it will break easily but for they price who cares really. just be careful
