The Rimmel stay matte powder is a cult favorite but I personally don't see the hype, yes it does set your makeup and it looks fine but man if I get a little sweaty on my forehead, I get yellowish powder patchiness which is NOT a good look. This powder would probably work very well in the winter months but I do not recommend for oily skin in the summer, I was a hot mess!

This sets my makeup so well at a great price it does not make your face look cakey or settle into fine lines it does not keep me from getting oily but I would highly recommend especially for such a great price.
This is my go to back up powder. When I run out of my usual powder this is a awsome substitute when im short for cash. Lovly light finish and sets my make up for the day.
Tips: Keep an eye out for specials at the Warehouse for example, last time I brought this they we buy 2 get one free.
I have this powder in the translucent shade, I really like this powder. It helps make up last all day without getting oily and it also does not look too cakey and does not go patchy either. The size of the powder is also a decent size and it lasts a very long time.
The only thing that I am not happy about it, is that Rimmel still test their products on animals and I would rather buy a different powder that is not tested on powder that works just as well.
I swear by the translucent powder as its lightweight and sets my makeup in place all day. For the size of the pan, the price is great and if you want just a little more coverage, there are some more full coverage powders
I rarely wear powder as I have dry skin and it gives me instant cake face. But with the super hot summer we have been having I needed a little something to pop on top of my BB cream. After reading a few reviews this seemed like a great powder to start with.
I purchased the powder in translucent which cost around $14. The packaging is not the best. I find the plastic lid cracks easily so you have to be careful if you want to throw it in your bag.
I really like how this makes my skin look quite flawless. I use a big fluffy brush, swipe it in the pan, tap it then apply all over my face. Super easy!
It goes on smooth and does not go cakey at all, woohoo! It sits so well over my BB cream and does not settle in fine lines or around my nose. It is definitely a great, affordable powder which I would happily purchase again.
I received this powder in a beauty box, and it is now a part of my everyday makeup routine. The powder is not too heavy and just finishes of my foundation. The price is good and can be found in most department store. Long lasting winner!
Rimmel never seem to let me down they have simple packaging which I think must help to keep the prices down and make their products great value for money and this is no difference.
It comes in the same shallow container with a clear lid as their bronzer. The translucent powder makes it brilliant for everything.
The size of the container makes it easier for what ever size brush your using to apply it. I find it Goes on well and lasts all day.
This stuff is great, doesn't beat around the bush. Long wearing for shine control, comes in a range of colours and the famous shade 'translucent' for any skin type and colour. You're only paying for the product as the packaging is B-grade which is fine by me! Have been using this for 7+ years and swear by it.
Tips: Can use on top of skin, setting foundation, baking... multi use.
I received this in the "The Ball" Beauty Box, which has since sold out.
The powder comes in a flat, round compact, with a clear, detachable lid. The packaging is not heavy, but it does not feel flimsy either. The clear lid means it is easy to see the colour of the powder.
The shade I received is 001 Transparent. I apply this powder over the top of my foundation to set it, and to give my skin extra coverage.
The round, flat, surface area makes the powder easy to apply because it is very easy to swish a large brush around the powder. It is not one of those fiddly containers where you need to turn a dial so you can shake the powder out. It is not a loose powder like that, but more of a compact cake.
It goes on well. The powder is designed to give a matte finish to the face and to control oil and shine. I do not have a problem with oily skin, but I still like a matte finish. This powder gives me a matte look all day, while providing an extra layer of coverage. It has good staying power, and does not rub off too easily.
It has not irritated my skin, and it does not feel drying or cakey to wear. The powder also does not accentuate fine lines, or place too much emphasis on dry patches of skin.
Tips: It is easy to apply the powder with a foundation brush.
