Rimmel Stay Matte Powder

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder Review

I heard heaps of good things from the beauty world about this powder, so that's why I decided to buy it. Unfortunately, it's not available locally, but there are other ways to get it like buying it online.

I got mine for PHP 349 at @beautynbeyond_k.

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder Review

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder Review
It claims to have five hours of natural shine control and that it helps to minimize appearance of pores.

In terms of shine control, my previous powder was the Ever Bilena powder and yes, it’s also great for oil control. However, after a few retouches, I find that it becomes cakey and that would be the main difference that I saw between Rimmel Stay Matte and the Ever Bilena powder. Rimmel Stay Matte doesn’t tend to get cakey on my face no matter how much I re-apply.

For longevity and oil control in this country, it's impressive that it takes about four to five hours before I need to re-touch my T-zone. My oils start to seep through at hour 2 or 3, and with Rimmel Stay Matte, I think I can get by hour 3 without having to blot my nose area with tissue. On colder months, I can even go the whole day without retouching my makeup nor blotting my face. 

Since this powder claims that it minimizes pores, I can barely attest to it since I always use a silicon-based primer. I've used this alone once, and I didn’t really see much of a difference when it came to my pores vanishing. Overall, I think it's a great powder for oil control and it also comes at an affordable price. I've been using this almost everyday and I still haven't hit pan.

  1. if you can get the bourjois healthy balance powder in your country you should check it out. I have the rimmel stay matte and the bourjois healthy balance powder and I prefer the bourjois healthy balance as after a month I haven't hit pan and with the rimmel stay matte I did. After 2 hours of me putting the rimmel stay matte on my face was getting shiny but with the bourjois healthy balance its 3 or 4 hours later my face will get shiny. The bourjois powder is a little more expensive but defenatly worth the extra cash.
