I really like this powder on these hot summer days! It does keep me shine-free for about a couple hours then I need to reapply.
However, one huge downfall is the packaging. My lid keeps going and never seems to lock into place...could be a design flaw on my particular one, but also seems to be a complaint form other reviews.
Other than that, very nice powder and cheap as well :)
This is my HG face powder!!! i LOVE it sooo much it does wonders for my oily T-zone!!..Highly Highly reccomend it to those loking for a very nice face finish!!...Didn't break me out or anything just perfect!!
Just bought this recently. You know, I watched loads of beauty gurus talking about it & also read some internet reviews. And I am very impressed! I feel like this is a thing that I have been missing in my life. Goes on nicely, however, you have to be careful as it is a little dusty. Gives the prettiest natural matte look, the skin looks so flawless afterwards! The staying power is okay, I mean, I have normal skin so I do not need it to be mattified so much. I have the shade Transparent and it is very nice, matches the skintone really well. I love it :)
I love this powder. It seems to brighten your face up and give it some life. I don't like the the packaging very much though. I feel like I can't take it with me because it will open and make a mess ... I love this powder overall, despite the packaging
I wasn't too sure about this product when I first saw it just because it was so cheap compared to other powders, but I picked it up anyways. I was surprise to see it work very well! It goes not smoothly and doesn't appear too cakey. However it doesn't do much for oily skin, I find myself having to reapply within 1-2 hours.
The only issue I have about it is the packaging! I have really oily skin so I like taking my powder to school with me to make sure I don't look super shiny throughout the day.The packaging makes it such a hassle to reapply in the school bathrooms.
This is definitely good for those trying out make up for the first time. Nice and cheap. I recommend it.
I love this product. Its such good value for money. It says that it lasts 5 hours but I think that is last longer than that. It looks good and you do not look like u have powder on your face. Would buy again and think that this product is just as good as some high end products.
I absolutely love this product since I'm extremely oily. I usually put this over my foundation and it works wonders for it's price. I wish the made the packaging different so I can take it in my purse without being afraid of it opening up. Anywho, Oily skin girls try this! If it doesnt work, you didnt lose much but I'm sure it will.
Cheap and very nasty indeed. This product was recommended to me as being pretty great...hmmm, not so! Although the product glides on smoothly and is matte it somehow looks like you have smacked your face into a pile of pinkish baby powder. I purchased translucent and it was far from that. Staying power was average, the packaging rubbish. I would not repurchase and suggest you stay well away from this product, no matter how tempting the price.
I have Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Translucent. It's just okay for me. It sets my makeup and even dries up my oily lids on "no-shadow" days. However, it does not keep me matte in very hot weather- and I have dry skin, not oily! I paid about $6 at Shoppers, so for the price I'd say it's fine. The packaging is good since there's no flip-up lid that can snap off. The powder can look/feel heavy easily if you put more than one layer on. I MIGHT buy this again when I run out, if I can't afford to try a Revlon or L'Oreal powder. I would not recommend this for use in hot weather.
I think this is a great powder for oil-control! During the time that I used it, my skin really was less shiny than usual. However, it didn't control oil quite as good as one would've hoped.
Also, if I recall correctly, it has a rather strong smell, something I personally don't like when it comes to make-up.
When I did touch-ups throughout the day, the powder made my face a bit cakey. The packaging isn't great; if you drop it on the floor, it will break.
Overall, it's pretty good, and I would probably buy it again if I hadn't found a new product I like better.
