Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder review!

Hiya girls,

Here is my review on a very inexpensive powder which performs as well as the expensive ones. I have collected so many powders these days that I do not understand how I will finish all of them. So the next few days you are going to see different reviews of the different powders I own. I thought let me start with this powder which I have seen so many people use and like.

Price: 195/- Unbelievable right?

Lets start with the color. I have the color 5 Silky Beige, it has strong pink undertones but I got this because I wanted something that is exactly same as Mac's Mineralize Skinfinish natural in Medium plus. This is the color that was the same as the Skinfinish in Medium Plus hence I bought it. I think the color would suit anyone below NC 40. With powders you can have a little bit of color choice since they do not leave your face looking oddly white even if the color is a bit light.

The texture of the powder is so smooth. It blends pretty easily and there is minimal fall out from it. I use it with my ELF flat top brush all over my face. A little amount is good to go for the whole face. It is pretty pigmented and evens out the skintone so well. I can just go ahead use some concealer and this powder on top :)

The powder claims to make your face matte. I think it does live up to its claims. Unlike Maybelline's dream Matte powder which does nothing to my face, this one keeps mine matte for a few hours longer as compared to other powders that I own. It keeps your face matte for about 3 hours after which shines does come back.

The packaging of this one is a bit of a pain in the a**.  The lid is sooo loose. It keeps coming off. I saw many different pieces in store thinking only mine was like this  but all had same loose caps. Its so not travel friendly I must say.

The powder does not look patchy and blends well onto the skin. It is easy to use plus is a great find for people just starting out with makeup. My only problem with Rimmel is that it is animal tested. I am not going to buy any animal tested products for as long as I can hold back. If you are like me and love animals then I would not recommend this brand to you.

Overall, quality wise I think the powder is pretty good and performs extremely well for its price. I would highly recommend it had it not been animal tested.

1. Inexpensive
2. Good mattifying power
3. Easily available off late
4. Lasts long
5. Evens out skintone

1. Bad packaging
2. Animal tested

My rating:-4/5
