i love this powder, so soft and it blends on the skin perfectly, it makes my makeup look so flawless, makes it last so long, the packaging can be naff but that doesn't bother me, specially if i am travelling with it, i do use this powder on the daily and have had multiple backups, this is a staple and still is a highly raved about powder since 2005! theres nothing to knock this powder whatsoever

I am in my late teens/early 20's with oily, fair tone skin and blue eyes. My hair is unknown, oily with normal texture.
I've been using this product for years and it's never failed me yet. This is an absolute must for my purse, I never leave home without it in my makeup bag. I use 001 transparent right at the very end of my routine. It might sound a little strange but after setting spray I put a little of this on the areas I don't want to get too oily throughout the day(T-zone, around the nose, smile lines) and I swear that my makeup stays looking flawless(but not cakey!) Rimmel claims upto 5 hours natural shine control but I think it depends on what type of skin you have. Mine is combination and I can get to about the 6 hour mark before my natural oils come through and I need to reapply. If you haven't tried this tip then I encourage you to do it and see how you get on, it saves me so much time and effort on having to redo my makeup when I'm out. Also it's an absolute bargain at under £5. My holy grail drugstore product!

This stay matte powder is mot only the best powder but it is so affordable as well! I love the formula of it, and the way it feels when I apply it! The finish is nice and matte but it feels smooth as well! It is really affordable and I recommend this!

I’ve been using this power for as long as I can remember, since my 15 year old 2 shades darker than my actual skin tone days 😂 I love this power, does what it says on the tin but can easily go overboard with this and look dry and cakey. So I’d recommend using a light hand with this. It’s super affordable as well and can easily pick this up from your local supermarket to the drugstore. And the only other thing with this is that is breaks super easily, can’t remember the amount of times I’ve ended up with a make up bag full of powder or accidentally dropped it and It’s smashed everywhere

I’m really liking this Rimmel powder at the moment,it’s really well priced meaning I know I can easily replace it whenever I run out and it’s a pretty good product aswell👍🏻 There are different shades,the range is okay for a drugstore product.It does a good job at setting my makeup around the areas of my face that exclude my nose and under eyes as I have noticed it gets quite cakey in these areas. It does however stay there for a good 4-6 hours(which is basically my school day)It also does make my face “stay matte” I’ve noticed a lot less oil buildup around my t-zone since using this which is FAB.So it’s really not bad at all🙂 If you like a good bargain..this product is for you! x

I am in my teens with combination, light tone skin and brown eyes. My hair is medium brown, combination with normal texture.
This is my everyday go to pressed powder I use it everyday to mattify my combination skin and it works perfectly to remove the appearance of shine and oil.
I apply it with a big fluffy brush all over my face to create a matte base for my powders. You can use this on its own or on top of foundation and it works perfect either way.
It lasts me about 8 hours without re applying but will last longer if you have drier skin as my skin is slightly oily you can re apply all day as much as you want and it won’t look cakey. It doesn’t block pores and has no flash back, it comes in a range of shades I use 003 too add a slight glow to my fair skin.
Overall I love this powder and definitely recommend it if you want a really matte finish to your skin

I've used it for years and always re-buy when I need to. I like having it in, Although i use the lighter powders from my anastasia contour kit, this is my go-to for everyday and I still use it on clients sometimes too. I got my makeup done off a girl that works on TV and film once as a birthday treat, She did airbrush make-up , had the most high end and most expensive kit I had ever seen , yet she still used this to mattify and that spoke volumes to me. It's been part of my kit ever since.

I have been using this powder for years and nothing compares to it esp as budget powder. It works great over a foundation base, with a even coverage and adds a nice hint of colour for my skin tone. It sometimes cracks and crumbles when it gets to the end of the product but not a major downside. After trying a few others with not the same success this is always my go to powder.

I love the quality of this powder with slightly pink undertones i love that they have a pink based powder.
Sadly i wont be repurchasing it again though as its highly fragranced and gives me a headache. So if ur sensitive to strong smells i dont recommend this

This has been a make up staple for me since I was in my teens; I love that it comes in various shades (though being so pale, I always go for translucent), that it is so easy to apply, and that it is such good value. I usually put it straight on top of primer or just moisturiser, but obviously it sets foundation well and is perhaps the most handy item of my make up kit.
On the downside, the lid has a habit of popping off and I accidentally poke it with my nails. The reason why I have down voted it by one star, however, is because they are not a cruelty free brand. I have said I won't buy it again, because of course, I have previously bought it countless times but I am currently on my search for something of the same quality that doesn't test on animals abroad.
