If you tend to get oily skin within just hours after applying your makeup, this transparent powder is a must! Your face actually stays matte and non-shinny for hours! Although Rimmel sells this powder in different shades, I recommend the transparent powder. MUST BUY!
Cons- Does NOT fully remove all eye makeup especially waterproof eyeliners and mascaras, burns your eyes if it finds its way inside your eyes OUCHY! Pros-Beautifully removes my 24hr foundation, leaves my skin soft, good for sensitive skin and does not break me out
I purchased 24hrs 250 Medium Beige. This product easy to use and covers light-medium coverage NOT full coverage. Does not last 24 hours. Cons-Nasty and strong odor, the foundation says "Medium Beige" but comes out waaay lighter, made my face oily after a couple of hours Pros-Fairly cheap $8-$12 bucks, made my face look nice and matte, you dont run out of the product fast it lasts a long time in the container Dont purchase if youre looking for full coverage, Purchase if you like light and silky foundations
I bought 24hrs Colorstay 220 Natural Beige. I have oily and acne prone skin and this product really emphisized all of my imperfections. My face got really oily within 2 hours after applying. Cons- Very messy product, NOT for oily skin, does NOT last 24 hours, although I purchased 220 Natural Beige the foundation came out alot lighter Pros-Cheap about $8-$12, good for people who prefer light coverage, the foundation is not thick, the foundation does not smell nasty or strong.
I purchased deep brown for eyebrows a couple months ago and I really liked how the brow pencil let me control the strokes on my eyebrows. My eyebrows looked incredible and natural (when applied correctly). Cons- I ran out of the product in ONE MONTH, about $16 bucks, although you have control on the amount of product you want to apply you have to be EXTREMELY CAREFUL when youre turning the stick whenever you want to apply to eyebrows because once you turn it, there is NO turning back. Pros-Natural looking brows, you have control unlike other eyebrow pencils, gels or powders, there is a color that will suit your hair and face.

This translucent powder is amazing I truly believe this powder is THE BEST out there. I bought 20 invisible blend for about $20 bucks at Macy's about 2 years ago and I just ran out of the product a couple days ago. My pores vanished and my oily skin was tamed for hours after applying the powder. This product is cheaper than Make Up Forever and doesnt make your face look white with flash photography. I will definately buy this product again and trust me you wont be sorry! Great price and wonderful finishing powder for any type of face, trust me.

I love the primer Neutral #0 !! It leaves my skin glowing and ready for foundation. It definately helps the long wear of my foundation and dries up quickly when I apply. My pores almost vanish and my foundation glides on smoothly on my face. I love how silky smooth the primer feels on my fingers tips before I apply to face unlike other primers. I have sensitive skin with acne scars so I was looking for a product that will NOT irritate my skin and NOT cause any breakouts. This product is a must buy is youre looking for something that wont irritate your skin or cause any breakouts :)
I LOVE this product! I would definately purchase again and again! The foundation is full coverage and lasts ALL day long! The only con would be the foundation shades :( I have to blend my lock it foundation with cinema secrets foundation to create my exact skin color. Either way this foundation in truly unbelievable! I have tried EVERYTHING and I have finally found the one lol. A little goes a long way which is good since i have ACNE-PRONE skin with SCARRING. I get compliments on how great my skin looks ALL the time! :)
