I love this powder!
It doesn't have a smooth soft texture, it is rather chalky, but this is how I know that it will keep my face matte and absorb the excess oil.
I have combo-oily skin very prone to acne and I have sensitive skin ><
This product controlled my oil all day despite different weather conditions.
There are very few colour choices and I chose sandstorm which matches my NC30 skin tone.
It doesn't provide much coverage as it is a pressed powder, but it does even out some flaws or minimizes the appearance, making it look less obvious. I really love this powder and it is soo afforadable!
Defintely an HG for me!
This one impressed me. The price always was a big turn on, especially when you think it couldn't possibly be that great for such a low price. I was wrong. I use this together with Colorstay foundation in buff and it looks great even better than Covergirls classic Ivory and the staying power AWESOME! I hardly have to touch up! Me no lie. You know how after time powder changes into another color? Well this hasn't, I keep checking and no I look freakin good! This one is a keeper. Color is Sandstorm The packaging is just DUMB but I am sure to take extra care of it becuase I like it soo much!
I blot my face first with a blotting paper and then use this with a kabuki over top again.
It does keep my face matte for a couple of hours, but then I get oily again quickly.
The colour is perfect for my skin tone.
The powder is very soft and I like the finish it gives on my face.
The packaging is sub-par. I wish the lid was more like Revlon dream matte powder where it pops upon instead of you taking the whole thing off.
Great product. Keeps the oil at bay without looking powdery or dry, and I think it gives a more uniform and soft appearance to my skin. I actually like this better than Maybelline's dream matte powder (which was a little bit too powdery for me). The only con, as others had said, is the not very handy packaging, but for the price.. I will not complain.
Also I love the color (Sand Storm), I feel like it warms up my face :)
One of the few things in my make-up collection that gained my total trust. I use this daily and i can't count how often i repurchased this already. I apply this in the morning instead of foundation if i only want to matt my face for the day. I might have to reapply it once a day,compared to other pressed poweders, that's nothing. I love the fact that it does not make my face look 'powdered'.
The packaging is horrible. It is not meant to be carried around, it opened in my bag several times. I wish they would customise the packaging without changing the product itself.
Packaging was horrible, the lid seems to be falling all time, but the product it self works amazing!!! Kept my skin matte, and also evened it out and made it felt silky smooth!
Is this a staple in my makeup arsenal? heck yes! why? because it works just as good as my Mac's blot powder (or even better) and it's dirt cheap. I didn't even carry my Mac's blot powder in my purse for a week and it cracked! The packaging of this stuff really looks like cheap stuff. But the packaging has never broke on me and there's enough room for me to put a clean powder sponge together in it when I need it on the go. I even bought a backup of this stuff because I adore it so much.
For a good matte coverage (good for oily skin), use a powder sponge. For a more natural look, use a powder brush. It makes all the difference.
I love this powder, it's perfect for whether you're just wanting a bit more coverage over your foundation or just to set your make up. I've never had a problem with the packaging and the lid has never fallen off it like alot of other reviews are saying, maybe I'm just lucky that way. The only powder that I think is slightly better than this is the MAC Blot Powder and considering the fact the Rimmel one is a drugstore make up that's rather amazing.
I don't like to wear full coverage foundation because it's way too obvious on my skin and just isn't natural-looking. Even light coverage foundation doesn't look natural so I gave up on foundations. My skin isn't bad at all but of course there are imperfections. I read the reviews on here and thought I might try this out because all I wanted was to even out my skin tone a little and also control shine without looking unnatural and I love it! The first time I tried it I put it over my sunscreen and then finished off my face with blush and my friends kept asking what I did to look so pretty! My face wasn't oily and my skin looked naturally beautiful. And I think it was like 3 bucks at Walmart? Love it! And if I feel like I need more coverage, I might just try out a tinted moisturizer and put this powder on top and I'd be good to go :)
Best moderate coverage powder as far as drug store brands go! The color match for me is perfect, the coverage is good but not cakey! I look fresh-faced and shine-free! LOVE!!!!!!!!!
