i LOVE this powder!!! i got this after reading some positive reviews, and i fell in love on the first day! i got it in Translucent, a really nice, sheer, yello-based colour. It's got medium coverage, i apply this over my concealer with with a puff, and my make up could last all day! due to my ridiculously oily skin, i still have to blot my face every few hours but i wouldn't complain. i gave it 4 lippies instead of 5 because of the rather awkward and unattractive packaging- just a pan with nothing to apply the powder with! it hasn't got sunscreen in it which is another thing that prevented me from rating it 5 lipsticks. overall a great product though! it's cheap, and i think the pan will last me virtually ages!!
I have this in "Sandstorm" and it is the perfect match for my skin. It really is a great powder! I'm impressed with the quality for the price. I'm not big on spending big $$$ for make-up...maybe I'm a rare breed! I really like Rimmel products.
I don't remember what I paid for this, but I remember thinking it was a great value. I bought this in Translucent, since I wasn't sure the other shades were deep enough or yellow enough. I find that it's best applied with a powder brush lightly over moisturizer and/or foundation. It definitely, definitely extends the matte-ness of my foundation and reduces the number of touch-ups dramatically. I wish the packaging was a compact--like the other reviewers said, the lid slides off so easily. But despite that, this powder is fantastic for doing its job and the price.
Generally a good pressed powder for only around $3.00, goes on smooth and silky sets foundation nicely. Does control oil breakthrough well. However I bought "translucent" and its way to pale. I am light but not that light ( I normally use CG fresh look in translucent light) I also don't really care for the packaging- would much prefer a flip up compact instead of a screw "pot" type. If you can find the right shade and don't mind the packaging its a great deal!
The packaging is bad because when you put it in your purse, the cover keeps falling off. Im kinda dissapointed because I like the product, I think it does a great job of keeping the oiliness to a minimum. Unfortunantly, it made me slightly break out. Just little whiteheads but I rarely break out and thats why I wouldnt repurchase.
This is a good powder for the price. It keeps away oilyness but I'm sure theres a better powder out there.
Overall it's a pretty good product for a cheap price. I got it at Walmart for 3 dollars. It makes my skin have a matte look and i need that since im very oily. the packaging isn't that bad at all.
This is a good product, but there wasn't a shade yellow enough for me (what else is new), and I hate the fact that it's not portable. I have to keep it at home and use a brush with it.
They seriously need to make this more portable if it's truly to be used as a pressed powder. I use it with a brush, like loose powder and it stays at home.
I got #4, Sandstorm, and I love it. It does a great job of controlling oil all day, and I like this color more than Jane pressed powder. If it had a better container it would be a 5, HG for sure. Super affordable too!
I bought this on a whim one day at the Shoppers Drug Mart - not pleased. The powder is like other drugstore powders I've tried; heavy, cakey and cheap looking. I ended up using it as a eyebrow highlighter/blender (for when eyeshadow looks too dark) and for that it works pretty well. That's the only reason I haven't thrown it out! Save your money and spend it on a high-end pressed powder, you won't be sorry.
