This is an "OK" powder, but nothing really special to me.
.
Good news: It mattifies skin and does not look cakey. I still need to blot once during the day, but it's definitely better than when I don't apply any powder. That's all for the good news, though (it's also cheap, but all Rimmel's products are).
.
Bad news: The packaging is horrible. The lid is very loose, which makes it impossible to carry around in a purse. You also need to buy/carry a separate sponge or brush to apply it. It has a strong, cheap cosmetics scent (or at least, I think so >.>). Most Rimmel's products smell bad, in my opinion, and this one is no exception. I bought this powder in transparent, which is not... transparent at all. I don't know if it was just a fancy way to say it was very pale, but it has colour in it, so if you have medium/tan/dark skin, this is definitely not going to work. Earlier this summer, I was a little bit tanned and this powder just made me look patchy.
.
Personally, as far as drugstore powders go, I prefer Maybelline's Dream Matte powder. I'll finish this one, but will not repurchase.
