Heya beautiful girls here. This is my first post here and of course am excited. Thank you so much Preets for accepting my contribution :-* Rimmel stay matte powder is a much raved product, and it can be seen used by many Youtube gurus. Read on further to know if it’s worth the hype or not.
WHAT PRODUCT SAYS:
Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder gives you up to 5 hours natural shine control with natural minerals. Helps minimise the appearance of pores. Dermatologically tested.
14 gm/ 0.49 oz
MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE PRODUCT:
Starting with the packaging it comes in a very simple packaging. It comes in a round plastic pan with a transparent lid. You need to screw up the lid to use the product. It has no mirror and applicator. Overall the packaging looks cheap, but still it is convenient to use, travel friendly except the screw on lid factor.
The texture of the stay matte powder is smooth but not overly soft that it would glide on your skin. However there are no fall outs in the pan. It blends into the skin very nicely. It has a sheer coverage hence it does not feel heavy on the skin. It doesn’t give any cakey effect to the face. It evens out my skin very well. It works well in setting the foundation and concealer. It dint dry out my skin.
I have oily T-zone and it controlled oil up to 2.5 hours. Definitely not more than that. Being specified as Matte powder I thought it would control oiliness more than 4+ hours. But I was proved wrong. But still it is better than the other compact powders I tried. Need to be reapplied after that to keep the oil at control. Overall, it is an affordable, decent compact powder though not great, is still better for the price.
