I have been a fan of the Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder for as long as I can remember, so for a product to come along and knock that off my favorites list is a big deal - presenting the Stage Line Professional Formula Two Compact powder - a better, more refined version of the cult classic Stay Matte.
In Pakistan, we have heat and humidity like no other, meaning that the products I test out always go through tough conditions and if they come out on top from there, it means they are pretty great. This offering by Stage Line although a bit bulky in packaging, is perfect for literally every occasion. I use it with a powder brush during the day for a light coverage and it's oil controlling properties, or during the night, apply it with the sponge it came with, for a medium buildable coverage that stays on for ages! I've been enjoying setting my under eye area with this, since I feel like it soo finely milled that it almost blurs out any cake-iness from previous concealor applications.
All in all, this product gets a double thumbs up from me. Being the first product that I tried from Stage Line, it's definitely made me want to look into other products. As for the Formula Two powder itself, it is lightweight, has bulidble coverage, stay on for a long time and has great oil controlling properties - what more would you want from a compact powder? Haha
