THis powder is amazing! It's only $3.99, which is super cheap, and it smells really nice. The powder itself doesn't have much color, but it works beautifully to eliminate shine throughout the day and sets foundation and concealer perfectly. Basically, there's no reason not to buy this!
love love love this! It sets my foundation really well without looking cakey or orangey. Without a good powder my foundation can look a bit orange but this powder sets it so well that this is not an issue.
has no smell
lasts for ages
packaging is flimsy and the lid comes of quite easily in my makeup bag
I think I may buy this over the Maybelline Matte Powder.
It's a cheap, light weight, not cake powder and goes on and lasts for a long time. A lot longer than I recall of the Maybelline Matte Powder and it doesn't overwhelm your face with color. Highly recommend you girls & guys to try it!
Though I think most of the shades of this powder are nearly the same, this powder is the bee's knees! It's the ONLY thing that keeps my foundation on for HOURS. Even with the new shades they have added, this powder is in need a way better color range. It's easy to come by and pretty cheap. I hate not being able to throw it in my bag though. The packaging is pretty lame.
I generally love all Rimmel products... but not this time.
- settles into my fine lines, especially my under eye area
- first time I used this, my face was itchy and turned into a rash
- scented product.. some people might be allergic
- the packaging is terrible quality..doesnt even close?
Would not recommend this product.
I love this powder. The shade is a perfect match for me and it keeps me oil-free all day. This is one of the best drugstore powders I have found and it is very inexpensive. I paid only $3.99 for this. My only complaint is the packaging. It is somewhat cheap and the lid can be easily knocked off. My sister once dropped hers and it fell apart. Will definately be purchasing again!
I bought this powder because I I had left the one I usually use at home when I was on a week long trip. Besides the cheap packaging (I DO NOT recommend putting this in your purse/bag/whatever) It does give a matte finish. I'll give it that. Also, the amount of product is quite generous. The powder didn't make me break out but makeup hardly does that to me so it wasn't even a concern. I just hated that the powder really clung to the dry flecks that tend to form on my face. It made them more noticeable and the powder lasted longer on the dry parts on my faces while fading on the rest. Not a cute look. Considering its cost and how I only needed it for a week it wasn't a big loss. I just wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Another con was that this powder could not keep the shine and oil at bay for long and reapplying it often is guaranteed to make it obvious you're wearing face powder.
I actually have the 003 Natural shade, but this powder is amazing! Doesn't make my skin cakey or dry, it just finishes the face nicely. I regard it more of a translucent powder since there isn't much coverage, and I use it more to set the liquid foundation. Will def repurchase.
I have been buying this for years. It is the one staple that I never stray from. I wear it over my BB creams, or foundation, or all by itself for just a little bit of light coverage/shine control. I only have to buy it maybe once a year since a little goes a very long way. It doesn't make my foundation look cakey or give that weird powdery shadow that some other pressed powders do. It doesn't make my face feel or look dried out or flakey. You cannot beat it for the price.
I bought this powder because I just wanted a good powder that would absorb oil and take away some shine. And this powder was so cheap I had to try it. It cost about 3-4 dollars at target. I have the color sandstorm which is a little light for me and the color selection isn't the best. The staying power of this powder is about 4-5 hours max. It does take away shine and absorb oil but you have to re-apply the powder throughout the day. And it can get cakey if you put a lot on. When this product is on my face it feels like I have powder on my face which I don't like, and it doesn't let your skin breath. The coverage is light to medium and I do like this product for the how cheap it is and the amount of product I'm getting but I won't be repurchasing this item because I feel like there could be a better powder out there even if it cost a couple dollars more.
