This is a very good product. Let me just share something: I applyed my fndt(colorstay) then a loose powder (coty airspun) , hours later I was oily and wondered why.. I thought "what did i do differently" sure enough i did not apply this powder.. its great for the price . Everyone should try it. not to be used alone though.. it is best used for setting.

This is really good!!! Used over just about any foundation, this makes it last all day long! And it's dirt cheap, and it doesn't look "powdery"! Great product! Only gripe would be the package isn't very convenient, but you can't have everything, right!?

This is most definitely my HG setting powder. It used to not be though, but what I found is that you just need to change the type of brush for it to do its magic.I use E.L.F.'s Studio powder brush, and that is how my setting powder became HG.Definitely stays on throughout the day for me now :].

I like this powder, it can make my face looks flawless and matte for the first 2-4 hours (depending on what I wear; if I wear bb cream it will get oily the next 2 hours and if I wear fdt it can last for 4 hours on top). Overall I love the quality of this powder, and also this powder was pretty cheap one; just about $6.78. One thing I hate is the packaging, why you have to use any plastic compartment?? I don't mind if they didn't give any sponge/puff inside (I'm not going to use it either way, I prefer Ecotools Powder brush to apply my powder) but I DO MIND when you didn't give any mirror compact alongside with this amazing powder.

A great product that lives up to its name and makes your skin look matte. You'll have to apply more after a few hours but it's totally worth it. Be careful about the packaging though since it easily breaks. I would absolutely recommend this product!!

I have used three of these and keep repurchasing for my daily make up routine. The packaging on my latest one is actually improved so the lid doesn't come off so easily. Yay! So I gave it an extra lippy. Thank you Rimmel. I have only just managed to find the shade that works for me - 005 silky beige. When I lived in Spain the lightest shade I could find was 006, just a tad too dark. (All the olive skinned senoritas dominating the market haha) then in Ireland I got one a little too light but this one is juuuust right. I like that they cater for pink and yellow undertones in their shade range too.It CAN look cakey but I find applying with a brush and sweeping it on over my BB cream leaves me looking natural and matte.I don't know if any one is with me on this but some powders feel... uncomfortable? Almost suffocating or tight? This one is nice though, I doesn't ever make me feel like that. This product really does depend on what you use under it! Basically, if you don't have a good base product it's not going to last. I tried it with Garnier's original bb cream and it left me shiny after a few hours and it oxidized (although it could have been the bb cream). Now I use the oil free BB cream and I don't have any problems. It just leaves me with a lovely smooth finish! Sooo if you have tried this product and didn't like it, try to persevere by using other products with it. If you're an oily skinned girl, like me, then definitely try with other oil/shine control products.You can't go wrong at the price. I usually pick it up for around 5-6 euros.

This powder has so much hype around it that I had to try it. I've nearly finished my first one and I like it okay, but I don't think it's really amazing, to be honest.It's finely milled and sets concealer and foundation nicely (providing you use only a little and tap your brush off before applying), with a perfect matte finish - not super flat like some powders - and an extra light bit of coverage. I've been using it everyday over the top of my concealer and it's very nice and natural (I have the Translucent shade, for reference). HOWEVER. It has pretty rubbish staying power, at least for me. I don't have super oily skin - it's combination, leaning towards the drier side. In other words, my T-zone doesn't get that oily - except with this powder. It really only lasts a few hours before I get noticeably shiny, and that leads me to believe that it would last a significantly shorter amount of time on people with oilier skin. For a powder that's called "Stay Matte", I think that's pathetic.Everybody's complained about the packaging already, so I won't go too much into that. If you put the lid on and then turn it slightly it won't just fall off, but I guess it is a bit dodgy for travelling, etc. The price is amazing - mine was around about NZ$15, if I remember correctly, and that's really affordable. So nothing to complain about there!So in summary, I like the way that this powder looks on my skin, I love the price, but it doesn't do an efficient job at actually keeping my (combination/dry) skin matte for more than a few hours. I probably will repurchase, but I'm going to keep an eye out for an affordable powder that stays all day.

I am a college student who LOVES experimenting with makeup that is in the price range of my budget! This compact is great for daily use. I have fair and slightly dry skin with a little bit of redness because of my eczema and this compact gives me a natural finish, (paired with a foundation of course). If you are looking for a matte finish, this compact is not for you. I also don't recommend using this compact on it's own. It will not give complete coverage. I use it to set my foundation and it looks clean and effortless. Some of the negative things about this product is that it doesn't come in too many colors which is totally not fair for some of the darker skinned girls out there and it also doesn't come with a sponge like most compacts do. I personally avoid using sponges because they can easily grow bacteria on them so I use a kabuki brush instead but some people prefer a sponge. This product review is based on my personal use with this product. It works well for me which I LOVE but it might not be the best product for oily skin and consumers seeking a matte finish.
