Hey lovlies,

Here's what the packaging looks like - ooo very nice!

I love how the product is in the shape of a crown, it adds a really nice finish to the packaging. Over time the crown shape disappears as you use more of the product.

I have this product in translucent, but if I buy it again I think I will buy it in a darker colour, maybe 003, as the translucent shade made my face quite white (or maybe I was just using too much...).

The first time I bought this was maybe two years ago, and I've been using it ever since. I had heard many beauty youtubers talk about this product, so I though I'd buy it too to join in and see what the hype was about.

The Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder aims to keep your make-up in place for up to 5 hours, which isnt actually a very long time. I wear it to school. and as my school lasts for 6 hours I am very shiny by the end of the day (it doesn't help that I have naturally very oily skin.... *sad face*).

Overall, I really like this product if I am just going out for a few hours, as for me the shine control only lasts for 2 or 3 hours. A bit disappointing, but definitely worth they buy if you have dry, normal or combination skin.

What's your favourite powder?

  1. I love this powder, its so cheap and it does the job x

  2. A lot of my friends use this and say they really like it. Thanks for the review!


  3. I love this powder! Being pale myself I have the same problem that you have come across. I learnt that if you only apply a light amount then it usually decreases how pale you can look. But that means it doesn't last as long, which is a shame. :)
