REVIEW: Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in 001 Transparent


Hey guys!

So it's no secret that this is probably my favourite setting powder, no matter how many different ones I try I always end up going back to this one, or having this in my stash in case the ones I'm trying don't work for me.

This is a high street product which can be found in Boots, Superdrug, Tesco and Asda for around the £3-4 mark. It's used to set your foundation after applying, to give it a flawless finish, stop the dreaded "shiny face" and to make make up last longer. I'm sure we all know that right? But just in case...

This powder in particular always claims to minimize pores and last up to 5 hours. Now I have oily/combination skin meaning that sometimes I can be very oily, some days i get dry patches and then sometimes my skin is fine. Weird..I know! Usually my skin sticks to oily though for days and days at a time so this is why I say oily/combination. This powder lasts around 3/4 hours on my skins but I take it with me if I'm going to be out for longer than that so I can re-apply it and it works very well. The colour I bought it in is "transparent" so it basically just blends with the colour of you foundation/skin not leaving any colour whatsoever. 

It is a "matte" finish powder so for those of you who like that dewy finish this may not be for you but I prefer not to be dewy as my skin can get oily so it just makes me look like i slathered oil on my face. I also prefer full coverage so this is why this powder is perfect for me. I tend to apply this when my skin is starting to wear my foundation down and it getting oily throughout the day, when its very hot this powder manages perfectly keeping my make up set and stopping it from sliding off my skin. 

I really love this product and it is the only powder I've found with doesn't turn me orange or that actually works for me. I will continue to repurchase this for as long as it is made available in stores near me!

What do you think of this setting powder? Let me know!
