Me: very dry & v pale, yellow based ivory neutral skin.

Been using this since my teens to keep lip liner in place. However recently tried it on my face to set Nars ‘radiant, creamy concealer,’ then remembered, I used to use it on my face too until I became beguiled by more sophisticated seeming, expensive powders, Laura Mercier etc etc.

Result:

I've read many positive reviews & also seen my favourite YouTuber raving about this powder, so I thought give it a go.
I purchased "Transparent" ones, which isn't exactly "transparent" -it's a creamy coloured pressed powder, and it does show a bit when you apply. I have a dry side of combination skin, so just dusting it on nose & forehead is enough …

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 …

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 …Read more

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 …Read more

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.
