Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Transparent - Review & Swatches

Hello Dolls!

Today, I’m gonna share with you Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder,
& i think i'm the last one on earth who's gonna review it .... hehe :p

Packaging & Swatches:

I'd picked it in 001 Transparent , which works absolutely well for me .

The packaging is so bad!! The lid is very loose, which makes it impossible to carry around in a purse. The top part doesn’t stay close for some reason, but honestly, for this price, you can’t really complain. 

color - 001 Transparent

My Experience:

I've combination skin & i use face powder for my T-zone esp in summers,
I have to say that Rimmel's STAY MATTE really makes my T-zone MATTE for upto 5 hrs . I believe the longest my T-zone didn’t shine was for 7 hours, THAT IS AMAZING!!! No shine for 7 hours!! Anyway, back to the product.

It does have some downfalls though, which I am going to talk about in a little bit.
This powder doesn’t come with a brush or sponge, but I have bought a puff and I love how it makes my face look. It doesn’t make you look “cakey” at all. It makes your face look so smooth.
It gets rid of all the shine on my T-zone which is amazing and so far, it hasn’t been breaking me out.  But I’m not sure if its comparable to a high-end product for price the quality they provide one can't complain/judge it.

I adore that it is a transparent powder and it does everything it says, gives minimal coverage & shine free T-zone .

Overall this is a really nice powder with a nice texture. If you have dry skin, stay away from areas where you tend to get dry/flaky patches and use it very lightly only where you really need it.

What to Love:

  • My face stays matte for at least 5 hours.
  • Dermatologically tested.
  • Good pigmentation
  • Minimize pores (temporarily)

  • The packaging is weak.
  • Doesn’t come with a sponge.

My Rating:4.5/5

Price: Pkr 650/-
(may vary place to place)
