Review for: 001 Transparent more...
This is SUCH a good budget-friendly mattifying pressed powder! It’s one of the first I bought when I was getting into makeup in middle/high school and I just turned 30 and I’ve been a fan ever since! This thing has been around for awhile and I still hear people rave about it and beauty influencers recommend it bc it’s truly wonderful! It works, it’s cheap, it’s easy to find... you really can’t go wrong. The only thing I DESPISE about it and why I took off a star is bc I HATE THE PACKAGING!! Seriously, it’s the only negative thing anyone has to say about it and Rimmel still hasn’t done a thing to fix it in all the years its been in production! Seriously Rimmel, get it together! It’s the main reason why I haven’t purchased it in awhile... I simply can’t keep it in my purse! All it has is a loose-fitting lid that doesn’t close securely and it opens up constantly and the powder gets everywhere and/or breaks and destroys your purse and its such a pain in the butt! Obviously a mattifying powder is something most people want to carry around for touch-ups, so for the life of me I cannot understand why Rimmel won’t just give us a compact that snaps shut securely! It’s not a lot to ask! I mean, a mirror would be nice too but I’m not picky! lol Just something that won’t open up and allow the product to get everywhere and break would get me buying this stuff again in a heartbeat! But if you are someone who doesn’t care about this issue or just needs a great mattifying/setting powder that won’t break the bank, I would totally recommend this formula!

This used to be my go to powder (when I wore makeup more often). You can find it in drugstores for under $5 and it gives you an okay matte finish. I say okay because my face never stayed matte very long, but I also live in a humid, southern state and I'm outside a lot. During the summer months, that meant makeup practically melted off of my face. But I still bought this powder because it held up better than other drugstore powders (of the ones I had tried). At this price point, I think it's a good idea to at least give it a try if you have normal, combination or oily skin. I'm not sure how well this powder works/looks on dry skin.

This product is okay but not something I love or use often! I usually grab this when I'm trying new looks out late at night. For me this product isn't the best, it tends to make my makeup look spotty after awhile of wear. It doesn't seem to last all day & sometimes makes my makeup look a little cakey! Its cheap (around $4-$5) which is a plus side, but like I said it's not the best, you get what you pay for! It may work different for some people but for me it isn't the best, however it's still a product I usually every now & then & I don't really regret buying it! I'd give it a 6/10.

If I know it is going to be a particularly hot day, I never leave my house without applying this to my oily skin. It keeps my skin matte even in the middle of summer. I don't use it every day as it is really matte, but I use it on occasions where I need an extra oil barrier. It goes on smoothly and definitely stays put.

There is literally nothing in the world better than this. I repeat, LITERALLY NOTHING BETTER. I stumbled upon the Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder nearly ten years ago in Walmart and I have yet to turn away. Over the years, I have tried EVERY SINGLE color, version, etc. this product has developed and they are all ten's in my book. The price is AMAZING. You can literally find it less than five dollars at most drugstores... and whether you are looking for white translucent setting powder, a natural powder to match your skin tone... or even the BEST (and I mean best!) bronzer in the summer... this is the most versatile powder I have even used. Amazing! Honestly, amazing. Buy it. And buy more.

Review for: Long Lasting 001 Transparent more...
This powder is actually super good! I enjoyed the matte finish it gave me & it kept my makeup in place without looking cakey. I purchased the powder in the shade translucent so there wasn’t much coverage but I wasn’t looking for that anyways. I did find however that the powder did leave like a white cast on my face which was something I didn’t really enjoy but it was an easy fix by just spraying my face with a setting spray. I would definitely recommend this powder especially for the price!

Review for: Creamy Natural, 001 Transparent, Long Lasting 003 Peach Glow, Other more...
I have the shade 003 Natural. This is a great powder to set your face without making you look cakey. It works great at setting concealer and to help eliminate unwanted shine. Very affordable product. The only thing I'm not a fan of is the packaging and the fact that the cap is completely removable and as careful as I am with it, it still broke. This is the only powder I've hitted pan on.

Review for: Creamy Beige more...
This was the first pressed powder from the drugstore that I absolutely fell in love with. This could be sold at Ulta for $40 and I’d still buy it because the quality of the product, the performance, it’s unbelievable. This is one of the drugstores best kept secrets type of products - for sure! I get mine in the shade Creamy Beige for those who are curious and for my skin tone and what I want for a finished look, it’s perfect. I have oily skin and this definitely sets my base for make up AND helps keep me looking matte throughout the day! I load up a powder brush and dust this all over the face when I’m done with my base and this does not cake up at all. My problem area is around the nostrils of my nose; so many products, especially powder when I’m setting cream / liquid products, get all caked up, crack and almost clumpy looking right at the side of the nostril where there is a crack. It’s my biggest pet peeve but never something to worry about when using this product!

I've been using this powder for years and it's a great drugstore option for a finishing powder. I wish they would expand their shade range so everyone could enjoy this product. I wasn't a fan of the translucent option though. It didn't sit well on my skin and I felt like I looked very powdery. The other shades are smoother and sit better on my skin. It's possible I had a bad batch. I love the lighter shades that give a hint of coverage while combating shine.
