Review-Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder

I have normal-combination skin which tends to get oily in the summers, a powder to keep the shine at bay is a must for me and since Rimmel's Stay Matte seemed to be working for everybody, I decided to get on the bandwagon too and give it a go.


This powder has now become my staple piece for summer. I cannot go anywhere without it, literally. On my T-Zone it keeps the shine at bay for almost 4-5 hours which is good enough for me and I usually powder my face again after that amount of time. Now, my biggest concern was that re-applying the powder again and again might make me look cakey but that is not the case and is an added bonus. The shade I have is transparent but I feel like it does give me a tiny bit of coverage which I don't mind but may be a tad bit problematic for darker skin tones. All in all, this is something that every girl should have in the summers since it keeps the oily-ness at bay better than any other powder that I've tried. The only problem is the packaging, it's okay for keeping on your dressing table but I'm always afraid that the lid will come off in my makeup bag.

Price-PKR 600.

What are your favorite pressed powders for the summers? I HATE loose powders with a passion since they are soo incredibly messy!

Until next time, tc.

  3. Thank you so much for reviewing it!! Since you mentioned it, i kept thinking whether to buy it or not. I was doubting between a translucent powder and one with more coverage. But now thay i've read that this powder gives a little coverage too, i think i've made up my mind! Again, thank you!! :D

    Have a great weekend!

  4. I used this powder for years, I recently switched to 17's Miracle Matte powder and I can't wait to switch back! It's a pretty fantastic powder!

  5. I've used this for years, it's such good value for money and keeps my skin looking really fresh! I've recently swapped to using the Natural Collection pressed powder, there range is 3 products for £5 and the powder is literally exactly the same, give it a try :)

    Hope you're enjoying your weekend :)
