Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder Review & Swatch

Posted by Amani Zaara at 20:35
Hello everyone,

How ru u ppl doing?? M alhamdulillah doing great.. Well as I mentioned in my earliar post m buying a lot of makeup for my wedding vanity from international brands .. So if got this compact from feelunique.com as this shade is not available on sassy.com as well as  nykaah.com so I got this from this international web side which also delivers to india. N to my surprise the website do not cost any extra shipping charges n also delivers pretty soon.
So let's start with the review,



Price: 3$ 

Ingredients: 

TALC, MICA, MAGNESIUM STEARATE, POLYETHYLENE, PETROLATUM, PHENYL TRIMETHICONE, DIMETHICONE, POLYBUTENE, ISOSTEARYL NEOPENTANOATE, ETHYLHEXYL METHOXYCINNAMATE, TOCOPHERYL ACETATE, METHYLPARABEN, COCOS NUCIFERA (COCONUT) OIL, PARAFFINUM LIQUIDUM/MINERAL OIL/HUILE MINERALE, PROPYLPARABEN, ZINC OXIDE, PARFUM/FRAGRANCE, ALOE BARBADENSIS, POLYSORBATE 20, BHT, BUTYLPHENYL METHYLPROPIONAL, BENZYL SALICYLATE, CITRONELLOL, HEXYL CINNAMAL, HYDROXYISOHEXYL 3-CYCLOHEXENE CARBOXALDEHYDE, LINALOOL, BUTYLPARABEN.
[May Contain/Peut Contenir/+/-: TITANIUM DIOXIDE (CI 77891), IRON OXIDES (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), ULTRAMARINES (CI 77007).

Packaging:


Comes In a basic round pan with a clear lid top that has no secure locking mechanism of any kind. The pan which looks quite cheap but since the product itself is very cheap I don't mind how the packaging until the product is good.. The logo of rimmel brand is encrypted on the powder which looks very classy although. But the pan is quite cheap n the lid is transparent with the label on it.. The shade name n details are behind the pan on its base. It does not provide any brush or puff with it but I prefer using my own brushes . And yes, it does and will come off if you try to toss it in your makeup bag. Definitely not travel-friendly. The compact (can I really call it a compact?) also feels very fragile like it’s going to crack any second if you drop it. But guess what, I’m not going to complain because this powder really does wonders at keeping my skin matte and for the price? Go ahead and crack, I’ll just get a new one!


My take on the product:

It comes in 6 shades n I chose the transparent one which is 01 the first shade.. It's not exactly transparent but a very light shade with very light coverage .. It blends well into my nc20 skin n does not change the color of my foundation or bb cream.. 
It does not hide much but u can build up for extra coverage. It does not look cakes even if u layer it more n looks absolutely natural n gives a nice matte look. 
It's not powdery or chalky n blends well with a nice dual fiber stipple brush. 


It absorbs the oil well even after being so light. It gives an even look to the face n it's basically a setting powder than a good coverage compact.
Coming to the staying matte challenge , yes it really keeps your face matte for a very long time.. 
I don't know about all day long but yes atleast from morning to noon n if applied in evening it stays till late night.. It's ideal for evening parties where u face lights n t zones shine . 
This really keeps the face matte easily all the party long.. N it may require a touch up if used whole day long.. 

Considering it's price it's the best of the best oil control powder in the market.. I Hv tried many high end brands too but this cheap drugstore product exeeds my expectations n pass with a big hit.

Cons:

May not b travel friendly but u cannot complain for the price it offers n also it's great quality.

Overall verdict: 

Definitely a must have even if u have high end powders . There's no harm in keeping this cheap product for handy touch ups.. I highly highly recommend this to combination to oily skin types.. Overall I say the best powder in this price n also I think best when compared to all high end oil control powders..

Rating: 4.75/5 ( for packaging ;p) 

Will I purchase again? Yes, definitely until I discover any better .
