I am a huge, HUGE fan of Rimmel's Stay Matte Liquid Mousse foundation. It's my favorite foundation of all time for my pizzaface. So you'd assume I'd love the powder from the line. But the truth is I've bought this several times over the years, and it sucks. Despite everyone recommending it to me time and time again... it still sucks. For me anyways.This does not keep my oil at bay. I'm lucky if I can even get it to set my sunscreen to a matte finish. I'm greasy again within 2 hours regardless. This is super cakey on me. It pools into my pores, creases at my nose folds (lucky me), and my undereye area becomes a horror. To add insult to injury, it causes my face cystic acne eruptions. It doesn't matter how incredible my skincare routine is going. If I use this, I can kiss any chance at being attractive goodbye.The pros? Well, obviously a lot of others love it. It does add a velvety finish + some coverage.It's pretty cheap. I'd say try it and see for yourself, because your mileage may vary. I don't usually rec that for products I hate *but* so many other oily gals love it. It's just not for me.

This is not quite HG status for me but it is definitely one of my drugstore staple pressed powder for many years. This is just your classic no frill powder that really does what it claims to do - it sets your foundation beautifully with a matte finish and does great oil control for up to 5 hours. You probably do need to touch up your face in between but my skin is so oily on the T-zone anyway literally no products make me stay matte all day. I do wish the packaging (namely the lid) can be a bit more sturdy - but that doesn't really bother me that much. You get A LOT of products (14g), comparing to the standard 8-10 grams you get from a pressed powder compact from the drugstore. The color says transparent but I can see a very slight yellow tint in it, which is great for me because I need all the yellows in the world when I comes to face products. In conclusion, if you have oily skin you're gonna love this. For the price you really can't beat and it works so well. Highly recommend.

It is a shame that the packaging so cheap and fragile, because the powder inside it is amazing. Keeps me matte without looking powdery when applied with a big, fluffy brush, for about 3-4h before I need to touch it up. I kept the powder in my bag for touch ups throughout the day and the lid broke in no time. I will buy it because I really like the product formula and it is very affordable.

Not good coverage and the perfume smell is just way to strong.

This powder offers good coverage and provides a nice finish. However, I found 001 to be very, very yellow. Completely changed the color of my foundation.

This only works for me when my skin is VERY oily. If you don't have a very oily skin and even if you only use a little bit, it will look bad, not smooth and will emphasize (and create) dry patches. The packaging is bad and breaks easily.

I have a combination skin and I quickly get oily. So combination skin in a tropical and humid country, I need all the coverage that I can get. This product left a medium coverage for me and after 1-2 hours, my skin already looked oily. I didn't pay much to get this so for the price, it's good but overall not so much. It's not long lasting. I don't think I will buy this again unfortunately.

I tried this stuff in the color sandstorm, so decided to try transparent. Fail. It didnt even keep me shine-free for 2 hours. Put it on before going to a movie, was shiny when i came back. Also, dislike the slight scent to the powder. Will stick to ELF.

Whilst the price point is amazing, this product didn't work for me. The 'transparent' claim is not completely true and when used to bake, leaves a yellowish colour behind. When used to set the whole face it tends to cake up, especially around the t zone. I thought it could be because of the liquid foundation I was using underneath the powder, but I discovered it caked up with all my foundations (both drugstore and high end).Please note I have combination skin, and while this product didn't give me the results I wanted, I have friends who swear by it.

I'm impressed by this product,I rarely use drugstore products because my skin is so oily,so I really need heavy duty products,I just decided to give this product a try after hearing so many good things about,Im so glad I did! This really makes a difference on my skin,it sets and mattifies with looking cakey,it makes my skin really smooth, and helps blur my pores. I love the packaging,its easy to carry around and to swirl a big brush on it. The only cons about this product is that it isnt completly transparent,It does kinda give me a white cast,and that it contains petrolatum and mineral oil which are bad for the skin. But over all this is a great product!
