This is truly a wonderful product. My only beef is the packaging. There's no puff or sponge and the top comes right off so it gets a little cumbersome. The powder itself is really nice. It's not chalky at all, instead it's very fine and keeps my face matte for hours on end. If you're looking for a pressed powder to wear in lieu of a powder foundation, this is a great product. Plus it's very cheap!
this made my face itchy too. i didnt break out, it just, well, itched. i dont remember what shade i bought this, but all of them looked the same to me in the package. i saw no pigment, not eve a slight bit. it kept me matte, but thats about all. the package is cheap and the lid doesnt stay on well. no puff or brush. im disappointed in rimmel...this is a product of theirs i found that i actually didnt like. wont repurchase.
Overall, I liked this. It gave me a matte finish that lasted pretty well over the course of the day and it's inexpensive. My only gripe is that it comes with no puff so you have to go buy your own, but on the whole I'd buy again.
Like my Neutrogena Healthy Defense pressed powder so much better than this.
You get a pretty big compact for a small price. I have Transparent & it's pretty good at absorbing oilies. I don't use it that much but I am pretty pleased when I do. You can't beat it for the price!
This is my Holy Grail powder. I have normal to dry skin and use Transparent. I dust Sonia K loose powder all over, but use this on my nose, chin and forehead when I first do my makeup in the morning and I am good to go for all day without touch ups. It's very sheer but does an excellent job of locking everything in place and staying fresh-looking. It never cakes up so I never look powdery. This is the best loose powder EVER, esp. at $3.97 for a huge compact. Would I repurchase? I already have- 3 times!
Thinking this may be a good substitute for MAC Blot, I bought this. It doesn't come to close to MAC and the "translucent" shade is very yellow on the skin. After 2 days, I accidentally dropped it and it shattered everywhere and that was the end of that!
excellent powder for its price, not cakey looking like most, but the packaging really sucks
This is a decent powder that provided good coverage but my poor skin just couldn't take it. Breaks me out like there's no tomorrow. Too bad, it was reaaly cheap.
I can't believe how nice this powder is. The warmer weather has brought out my oilies, and I wanted to nip it in the bud. So cheap--so sheer--so absorbant. It may be called matte but I don't end up looking chalky or like I'm made of wood or something. Actually makes me kind of glow--odd for a powder called "matte," but I find that with this powder, my pores aren't on display like with some of the shimmery powders and it just lets my own skin look smooth and shiny--shiny in a good way. Cheap packaging doesn't bother me at all. . .
