I have combination skin, but it's more oily in the summer than in the winter. I also work at a doctor's office where I'm interacting with patients all day long. Needless to say, I don't want to look oily! A little bit of natural glow is okay, but I'm not trying to look like a grease ball. One of my friends suggested that I try this pressed powder after I told her that I'm not a fan of loose powder. For the price, I figured why not? 

I'm quite impressed! I apply it with a large face brush, concentrating on my T-zone. For the price, I'm not surprised that it doesn't stay longer than it does, but I really can't complain. It's a great size to keep in my purse if I need a quick touch-up, and it doesn't make a mess like loose powder does. I also like that it comes in a transparent shade because I don't like my makeup to be too cakey. Just the perfect balance!

I was an avid user of MAC Sheer Coverage but it was so expensive and finances were tight so I researched and looked on YouTube for a cheaper alternative and cannot be more happy that I found this powder. I was convinced that I had to use different powders and this one has worked for all the needs I had. It sets my under eye concealer without looking cakey, you can still bake, and it doesn't make you look crepe-y, it doesn't have too much fall out when you're using a large paddle brush and gives you light weight coverage to set a full face and definitely delivers on it's promise to stay matte. Love it! I use it on all my clients when I freelance and I've never had an issue with it. Love it enough to have no gone out looking for another powder and the price? Perfect.

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!

I was using airspun for a while but I didn’t like how the powder kind of cakes on even by doing a light, wet sponge application.
I switched back to the stay matte powder since I used it in the past and I remember it having a more matte look. I really love this powder because I apply it with a dense kabuki brush instead of doing a wet sponge application and it still stays on my face without creasing. I find that it works much better with my dermablend foundation as well as wet n wild photofocus concealer without lower eyelid creasing. This pressed powder is also pretty sweatproof if you set it with a ton of setting spray or even just dunking my face in water.

I bought this a while ago. Like... a WHILE ago lol I had only used it a handful of times. It always looked to cakey on me. I stopped using it obviously. Fast forward to about a week ago. I ran out of my usual setting powder so I figured I’ve give this a shot again. I’m glad I did! Now that I know a little more about what I’m doing, this went on so well!! I used a puff to pat it INto my skin not just ON. This made a huge difference. I didn’t look powdery and cakey. It set into my makeup and kept me shine free for quite some time. It didn’t alter the color of my foundation at all. I will continue using this for sure. I’m no longer in a big hurry to go buy another higher end powder.

I’m not going to lie this product disappointed me a ton. This powder is supposed to transparent but it gives off such a bad white cast on people of deeper complexion. If a product is translucent or transparent in my opinion it’s supposed to be universal and this isn’t. It makes the skin matte but it doesn’t really set my creases well and my makeup creases very fast throughout the day with it on. Also I have dry skin and really crusty under eyes and because this powder is so matte my under eyes look even worse than before. I would say this powder is only good for oily skin and people with lighter complexions but for most other people this product is a flop.Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder

I originally got this pressed powder to get rid of shine and smooth out the foundation on my face but it would make my skin look too cakey. It would cake the second I put it on my skin. I eventually used it for my eyelids and under my eyes to smooth out my concealer and foundation creases. It works a lot better for that than it does on the rest of my face, but it still doesn't go on too smoothly. I do love Rimmel, but I really don't like this powder. If you have dry skin or scabs/acne I recommend staying away from most pressed mattifying powders but this one especially makes all of my dry skin stand out.

Review for: Transaparent more...
Rimmel has some really great makeup.  I tried this powder from a Youtube beauty guru recommendation and was not disappointed.  The powder works great on my oily skin, and kept my skin matte most of the day.  It is a true translucent shade; it doesn't alter the shade of my foundation or look too pink or yellow.  The reason I'm giving it 4 stars is because it doesn't come with a brush or puff.  I like to carry this in my purse, and feel like my brush gets dirty.  I wish it had an applicator included.  Other than that, it's a really great powder for oily skin.

Picked this powder up without going through any reviews because of it’s name, stay matte! I have combo/ oily skin and wanted smth that will keep me matte and am able to touch up during the day for my oily areas. This powder did keep me matte but when reapplying it does get a bit cakey. Nonetheless this powder is worth the price and lives up to its name. Gave it 4 stars because the packaging isn’t the greatest, the lid doesn’t close completely and if I turned the product upside down the lid would jus fall off. Not sure if it’s all the powder with the poor packaging or just the one I picked up.

Such a great powder and so cheap! I take this powder whenever I travel & keep it in my bag on warmer days where I feel like I'll need a touch up. The compressed powder is perfect and you don't have to worry about it spilling all over your bag. I apply this using a flat cotton applicator (which fits perfectly inside the container) or with a damp beauty sponge. I find it to be brightening & comparable to my Laura Mercier powder. It lasts a long time & I've repurchased it at least 3 times and recommend it to everyone. My family swears by it! Best drugstore powder by far!
