I didn't like this powder at all. No matter how little I applied, it always looked cakey (even after spraying my face with some setting spray, the kinda heavy, powdery look didn't dissapear). I have normal skin which becomes a bit oily throughout the day and this powder did not make my face stay matte longer than it does without powder. I am sorry this did not worked for me, 'cause it's so inexpensive and it seems to work for everyone else.

This product claims to be matte and it does do a great job of keeping the skin matte. After a few uses, I started to notice tiny flecks of glitter in the powder. I'm sure if this is intentional on Rimmel's part or not, but it was very frustrating after buying a product with so much YouTube hype. There is a slight scent that seems to dissipate once applied to the skin. It seemed cakey when first applied to the skin but once I set my entire face with setting spray it looked better. I'm not sure if I would repurchase this product but I did like the fact that it was not an expensive powder.

Very bad packaging but the actual product is awesome. It does what it says: your oily areas WILL stay matte. Some people find it cakey but I have found a way to minimize this effect. I like to put a lot of this powder with a sponge in my whole face (I have oily combo skin) and THEN take a clean, big powder brush with soft bristles ( I use the ecotools powder brush) to blend and take away the extra product in my face. I do not bake with this technique but this helps me have a flawless finish and helps reduce the appearance of my pores, as well. This powder has a slightest but pleasant smell. Very good value for money and good staying power.

Been using it for more than 4 years.

Very cheap and very very good product with good staying power.

Even if I have dry skin, I do sometimes get shiny on my T-zone and this powder prevents that.
Never had problems with it, like breakouts or anything.

I really hope they do not discontinue this product but they should make the packaging better. It is very easy to break it.

It does mattify the skin but leaves it cakey if you put too much and even when you touch up after a few hours (which you'll need to) as this powder only does it's job for an hour—2 tops. It can also accentuate fine lines and dry spots on the face.

I love this as a finishing product. My nose gets shiny so I just dab it on my nose and forehead and go.

I'm on my second one and i use the natural shade. I bought it for 3.99 at Target. First of all, how many powders with that much product can you get so cheap? But that's not even why i love it.
I expect a lot out of my powders. I want to be able to use it over primer and be done when I'm in a hurry. This one stands up to the challenge. All shine is gone, and it even covers quite a bit of the redness from my occasional pimple. I'm not trying to say it covers completely alone, but it does a hell of a job. Later in the day i dust a bit more on and my face looks good again.
Yea the packaging sucks, its cheap, but so is the price. Eventually my first lid cracked and then the powder did too. But but then it was pretty low and i was still able to use it at home as a loose powder. I really love Rimmel.

I had bought this thinking it was going to be amazing and life hanging for me but I just don't like it. It clings to all of my dry spots and makes my face look cakey. It did keep my skin very nice and matte throughout the whole day and made my makeup last long though. For people with very oily skin I would definitely recommend this but to those with dry patches just be weary!!

I have this powder in the translucent shade and it makes my makeup look so matte with so little product! Plus it has no white cast. The only con is the packaging - its a bit of a weird packaging and sometimes hard to get open. Totally worth it though!

Wasn't terrible, but wasn't great. Bought it for maybe 1.50$ or 2$ Canadian on clearance at WalMart. This is the Rita Ora collab version and I have the shade Translucent, but it still has a little bit of pigment. I use this to set my under eyes and my whole face when needed.

I really don't like the packaging, it feels cheap and it's annoying to have the top come completely off. I find myself having to search for the lid because I put it down then moved it or wasn't paying attention. A hinged lid with a mirror would be nice. I highly doubt the powder would survive being dropped.

The product is pretty powdery, and using even a little bit too much results in a cake-y mess. It can make my under eyes look really dry and crepey if I use a bit too much, and it clings to dry patches on my face even with moisturizer underneath my foundation/ concealer. I've found it works best if I press it in with a makeup sponge instead of powder it on with a brush, otherwise it looks very powdery.

I'd say for dry skin this might be a miss. I do like to use it to touch up the areas where I get slightly oily (T zone) but need to use it sparingly. I doubt I'll be able to use this in the winter when my skin dries out more.
