Drugstore: Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder

"No chance to shine with Stay Matte Powder. Goes on smooth to even out skintone. Offers a natural, matte finish. You won't go out without it"

Available in 3 Shades:
Silky Beige (005)
Sandstorm (004)
Transparent (001)

All I can say is "WOW!" I've been using this product non-stop ever since I got it on a daily first thing I grab after foundation application... (Takes one application a light one at that–I use a big fluffy paddle brush).

I've gotten loads of great feedback this whole week and I think this and another product has been adding the extra kick (def. will be in another post).

I apply this product in shade: Silky Beige (which to me works well *really doesn't have that much coloring) right over my Bobbi Brown skin foundation (covering my T-Zone area as well as my eyelid.)

So, speaking about my eyelid area I haven't touched the Urban Decay Primer potion. I simply dust this from brow bone to eyelid and apply my paintpot (cream base –pop of color), etc...And no crease what-so-ever!

Seriously, I work Monday-Friday 8hr shift ...and so far each day the make-up has been on point. Using this product I dont feel the need to grab my fix+ to soften the powdery-ness, because their isn't any sign of powdery/chalky/cakey = ness. It's def. a gem!

I know when I went to Sephora weeks ago the sales clerk said my pores appeared a little large and this minimized them a lot. So for those who are afraid that this product would enhance your flaws...I will tell you this product hides them in a delicate way.

Will I repurchase? Would be in my routine for life!

- Affordable …Less than $6
- Color payoff is sheer enough to work with most complexions.
- Transparent for those with deeper skin tone.

I guess 3 shades will throw people off, maybe a sheer tone pressed matte bronzer shade with the same formula could help out others, but I really do believe the "transparent" shade will work just perfect!

The packing is ok. Cover top is a screw on and it's already worn off to where it keeps going and going lol (drugstore packaging stinks sometimes, but hey! we know what we paid for).
