I love this product! I apply it everyday as my finishing touch on my makeup, I use the translucent powder. My skin is oily and it does last very well, with maybe one touch up during the day. I keep one in my makeup bag and one in my purse.
I didn't even read the great reviews for this on here before I bought this - I picked it up one day as a last minute purchase...
I really like this, it's completely transparent, not cakey and keeps the oil at bay for most of the day. And it's so cheap! And from reading the other reviews and comparisons to more expensive products it doesn't seem like I need to try anything else. It's great to have on hand just in case, and yes, the packaging leaves much to be desired but I guess at that price what can you expect? I would rather have a better product at a more reasonable price than pay extra for some fancy packaging!
I really llike this powder and the value for money is excellent. This retails for AUD$12 and compared to my Bobbi Brown sheer pressed powder (AUD$65) it beats BB hands down.
I use the shade Translucent to set my foundation and for oil control during the day. It is marketed as 5 hours of oil control so you do need to touch up at lunch time. The powder is finely milled and not at all chalky/powdery on the skin. The packaging is very budget (I hate it) and I would prefer if it had a mirror, but then I dont mind it getting scatched up in my handbag as it doesnt cost much ;p
I have repurchased this twice and would recommend this too anyone who wants to try a good quality drugstore powder which is comparable to the expensive/high end brands. A++++
I have heard that the quality of the Maybelline Dream Matte pressed powder is good so I will have to give this a try too as it's packaging contains a hidden mirror.
I didn't find it chalky. I like it. Probably buy something else because I'm always trying something new but I would buy again.
I love this powder for mattifying my oily skin. I use translucent and it works year-round.
At first, I wasnt going to purchase this because Ive been afraid to waste more money on Rimmel face products after trying the terrible Stay Matte foundation. But my Target had a bogo free sale, so I went for it. Definitely ten steps up from its foundation counterpart! Makes my foundation matte and gives my skin a poreless finish. I had a cashier tell me that my skin looked like a porcelain doll! Has a nice, clean scent and I find myself not having to touch up (I dont have oily skin though). My favorite pressed powder. Only downfall is the packaging, its a twist off top, but I can just pop the top off without twisting, not purse friendly .
Nothing amazing but it is good and the price is great. Looks natural and offers some oil control.
I love this pressed powder, i own it in the shade 006 warm beige (even though i am extremely fair this seemed to match). it keeps my slightly oily skin looking matte for hours and covers my pores nicely. it doesn't leave a powdery appearance on the skin. the only problem i have with this product is the flimsy packaging as the lid is very loose but i suppose that's the quality you're going to get for the cheap price.
The price is okay, the color range is NOT, because after just an hour this powder darkened up on my skin (I used the lightest shade), so that I looked ridiculous. Also, it doesn't really have a mattifying effect and you can "feel" it on your skin, which is quite uncomfortable. Will never buy again.
Wow so impressed with the lower end product!! I bought this on sale for $9 in Aus and I'm very impressed with the results. My pores were covered and my friends told me I looked "luminous".
The powder was fine and settled smoothly on my drier type skin without highlihgting the dry parts and disguised it quite well. I have alot of problem with powders because of my dry flakes!!! this was awesome!!! I love the matte look.
I bought the 005 silky beige and that worked well for me as a Chanel 40 beige/ MAC NC30.
Lasting time is a good 5 hours or so, I re-apply and it's fine.
The lid be a bit loose, though I put a bit of sticky tape along the corner and it sits just fine.
Good light-medium coverage for everyday wear when i can't be bothered with a soppy liquid or heavy cream foundation. no allergies on my super sensitive skin. definate repurchase!!!
