[Review] Rimmel London Stay Matte Face Powder

Hey Everyone, i hope you are all doing well. Today i'll be sharing my thoughts on the Rimmel London Stay Matte Powder. 

Rimmel claims that this powder
- Lasts up to 5 hours 
- Helps minimise the appearance of pores.

The powder is available in four shades 
  • 001 Transparent 
  • 002 Silky Beige 
  • 003 Peach Glow
  • 004 Sandstorm
As for personal use, i use the number 002 Silky Beige.
I've been using this powder for around a year, previously i used the Maybelline Dream Matte powder, which was a similar product to the Rimmel Stay Matte. I found that the Rimmel one gave more coverage and was a tad cheaper.
I love how this powder feels on my face, after applying it on top of my foundation, it provides me with a nice matte finish. The powder stays on my face from the time i leave the house to the time i get home. 

The powder is not as finely milled as ones from Chanel and Benefit but the quality is fairly good for the price. I often see that my face looks slightly cakey, so i would recommend using a bit of the powder first then apply another layer if needed.

PROS:                                 CONS:
- Affordable                         - Limited colour range

- Compact 
- Available at most supermarkets and pharmacies (drugstores)
Overall i would recommend anyone who is looking for an affordable face powder that is long lasting with a matte finish.The only downside would probably the shades that are available. 

Have you tried this powder before? If so tell me your thoughts below!

  1. This is definitely my ride or die powder along with my MAC MSF Natural:) Great photography also!

  2. I love this powder and also the Dream Matte one but the latter is discontinued. I use the translucent shade so it doesn't change the base colour. I think I've gone through about 3 or 4 of these!

    1. Oh i didn't even know the Dream Matte was discontinued

  3. I agree about it not being very finely milled - I find the translucent one can have a bit of a whitening effect :/ it's a good product to reduce shine but in moderation! xx
