Rimmel Stay Matte Powder Review

I think I found the most amazing drugstore face powder. It is the Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder. It costs £4 and I got mine from Superdrug. I have it in the shade 'Transparent' but they do have a good selection of other colours. Unfortunately the colours only suit lighter skin tones so if you have darker skin I would just purchase the 'Transparent' shade.

It makes the hugest difference even with the tiniest amount of the product. It immediately makes your face look matte. It is a very fine powder and feels very smooth on the skin. It is not chalky at all. I love it for the fact that it does not cling to dry skin which most powders do. It also lasts a long time and I do not feel the need to touch up during school even though I have combination/oily skin. I also like the smell. It's floral (I think?) and smells a bit like old ladies perfume which I did not like at first but I got used to it and now I like it.

This powder isn't a fancy luminating powder with magical properties. It does what a powder is supposed to do and I love it for doing that. It proves that you don't need a $50 high end Chanel setting powder.

There is one thing that I do not like and it is the packaging. It's absolutely terrible. There is no mirror so it's bad to carry in your purse during the day and the lid is very flimsy, I feel like it will fall off any second.  They need to sort is out ASAP.

Overall I would recommend it if you can get over the nasty packaging and old lady smell.

What is your favourite setting powder? Would you try this out? Comment down below! :)
