This is by far the best product I've found for my fair, sensitive, skin. I have very sensitive skin, a combination of dry and oily, and this product works perfectly for me. This gives me a very soft matte look without looking too cakey. It's so light you don't even feel it on your face. The price fits right into my budget. Highly recommend it

I read many reviews of this product when trying to decide between the many mattifying powders on the market and decided to go with this one because it has been around longer than many others, and it's cruelty free.

Unfortunately, I decided the reviews that noted that it had shimmer in it (weird for a matte powder, right?) were maybe overblown. In the package and sealed, it looks completely matte. As soon as you open the container and press into the powder, it's like a completely different powder. The shimmer is very visible on the skin.

The absolute worst part of this product though has to be the fragrance. I haven't smelled a cosmetic this perfumed since I used to play with my grandmother's make-up as a child - it's that strong! It does not dissipate either, it requires a Clarisonic cleanse. I've never said this about a cosmetic before, but the smell is nauseating.

So, it's neither matte nor tolerable. If you can't try this in person before you buy, pay close attention to the negative reviews, I wish I had!

Comments about Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder, Transparent, .49 oz:

I was very disappointed with this product! I have very oily skin and was hoping that this would help throughout the day, but it didn't at all! Yes, this product gives you a matte finish right after you apply it but after an hour or so, my face is already getting oily. Whenever I reapply it, it starts to feel very heavy. Since I have acne prone skin, I don't want this to clog my pores and cause me to break out.

      Best all around inexpensive powder for oily skin. I use a kabuki brush to apply at home in the morning for a sheer dusting. It lasts about 3- 4 hours which is normal. I have broken so many of these in my makeup case that I now pad them with a cotton ball that I've stretched to fit the contour of the lid which has worked well so far. I use the broken ones for home use only.

          Comments about Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder, Transparent, .49 oz:

          If you want to use this, then you need to apply it very lightly. It sticks together and turns orange if your face isn't 100% dry. It gets stuck in creases and makes my face look cakey.
          I use the lightest shade in everything, but this made me look WHITE! It is supposed to be transparent, not white.

            This is a really good powder, better than most expensive powders I have used. For around 6 dollars, its very worth it. The only problem is the packaging. It's not too travel friendly. The lid needs to be attached to the case and there needs to be a mirror.

                I picked this up when I couldnt afford my usual Cliniqe powder. I bought this, and the more expensive Physicians Formula powder. I threw away the Physician Formula. Read such good reviews about the PHF, but it was abysmal. This stuff is close to the same quality as the higher end powders I have traditionally used and surely better than the PH Formula. It is a little less moist that I would prefer, cauing it to be a tiny bit chalky sometimes. Doesnt settle into lines though! So happy with this purchase!

                Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder, Transparent

                 – Rimmel began as a London-based perfumery in 1834, and today it's Britain's best-selling cosmetics brand. Inspired by London's distinct street style, Rimmel encourages real women to express themselves with their extensive range of affordable, high-quality products. To help you achieve a flawless face, learn more about the many benefits of Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder.

                Natural Minerals Calm Your Skin



                Minerals have been used since ancient times for makeup. As a natural ingredient, minerals have been proven to calm and protect the skin. This pressed powder contains natural minerals and is recommended for all skin types. It is particularly effective for those with oily and sensitive complexions.

                Long-Lasting Shine Control



                If you want a grease-free look even during the heat of the summer, reach for this matte pressed powder from Rimmel. The natural formula is lightweight and is easy to apply with a brush. It will absorb excess oil and give you shine control for up to 5 hours. Perfect for touch-ups when you're on the go.

                Looks Like Your Skin, Only Better



                Common complexion complaints include enlarged pores and blotchy skin. You'll find that some makeup will actually settle into your facial imperfections and then magnify them. Not this one. After brushing on the matte pressed powder, you may notice that your pores appear smaller and that your skin tone is more even. This natural mineral product provides a transparent finish that won't cake or crease. Use it daily to enhance your skin.
