This product is the best pressed powder I have ever used, for the price (I bought this for under £4) it really does more than expected for cheap item of makeup. I put it over my foundation, and it makes it last so much longer, I want to say it doesn't 'cake' on, but unfortunately if you use a brush it more than likely will, I recommend using a sponge (which is not supplied) which gives a more even finish. This packaging is quite disappointing, but we can't expect everything, it would be great if it came with a sponge and mirror, very small and compact, so great to carry about and even put in a small handbag! Really can't complain with this product it leaves a very nice matte finish, no shine at all, comes in a variety of colours, I use transparent but you should be able to find the colour perfect for you.

This is such an amazing powder. I have it in 006 Champagne, and I use it to set my foundation and just by itself. It soaks up all the oil and it's great to just put in your purse and add some if you look oily during the day. It's cheap and the packaging is handy, I just wish that it had a mirror or something. I have a powder puff in the packaging itself, which is very handy for on the go. At home I use a kabuki for it, and it workes great!

very inexpensive and i really like this product. i have a very shiny/oily t-zone. after applying my foundation, i pat my face with a little bit of this powder, and my shine is gone for pretty much most of the day. anyone should definitely try it out-- even if the product ends up not working for you, you'll only spend about 4 bucks at the most (target). the only complaint is the packaging.. i wish it had a little powder pad or came in a better case. the product itself is wonderful though (:

Great matte powder. Bargain price. I just wish they offered a wider variety of shades.

When I first got this powder I was using mineral foundation so it did absolutely nothing for me pairing the two up lol. Now that I'm back on liquid foundations I find this powder to work pleasantly well as setting powder on my oily t-zone. I particularly love paring it with Revlon Colorstay Active foundation. Wearing it alone doesn't anything at all, but it does control oily spots for a couple of hours. I'm really happy with this product as a oily control setting powder since the MAC blot powder broke me out, a great substitute for me :) The thing I do hate about this product is the packaging. The lid doesn't close as tightly as I'd like and a lot of times falls right off when I put it back in my training case. For that reason I hope Rimmel puts this in a mirror compact in the future so I can use it for touch ups on the go.

005 Silky Beige (w/ Natural Minerals) is a good match for my skin tone. (NC35-40) Sandstorm was too light, and Mohair too pink. I bought a soft velour puff to use with it (I just keep it in the case and the lid stays on) until I get around to buying a powder brush like most people here recommend. Oil control is decent, around 3 hours. For the price (got it for 29 QAR / around $7+) you get a lot of product [0.49 oz / 14 g] in the pan. I'm still trying other powders but this one is something good to have as a back up. Might repurchase.

Pretty much the worst pressed powder I have ever bought. I am not a fan of any of the Rimmel products, this being one of my least favorites. It doesn't even show up on my skin. The powder is too chalky and you can forget about taking it traveling with you, unless you want it all through your bag. I have had better luck with dollar store powder than this. I threw both of the shades I got in the trash.

I've been using this for years. It has simple packaging and a good smell. It smells like lotion or the retro face powders from the 50's. Not a strong scent at all, but feminine. I wear Sandstorm. I've gone through alot of these. They require you buy a puff or sponge seperate, and the lid sometimes comes off. I keep it at home, so that's no big deal because I love it. I often use this on my face and nothing else. It never cracks. Update: I think they changed the formula and added minerals, the powder seems softer and not as good. It's still ok, but not what it once was. That's a shame, Rimmel.

Excellent setting powder. The packaging is kinda poor quality, the cap doesn't stay on as well as I would like. But other than that it does a good job absorbing oil and hiding red blotches.
