Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Warm Beige 006: boots/superdrug £3.99

I've been recommended the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in the past by a few people, but finally bought it after I saw Kate using it. For a setting powder I typically use a MAC Mineralize Skin Finish, which I cannot live without. But not living near a counter has its problems when you run out. At £3.99 its hardly a balance breaker and I thought it would do for a bit.

In the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder, I use Warm Beige 006, Which I know sounds super dark, as I think its the darkest shade the do. But I feel out of the other colours I've tried this suits my skin tone the best. The others lead to grey or too pale. There is a transparent shade but when I was researching this review alot of people said the "transparent" shade led to white. Its very fine powder and I dont find it to be too cakey, I do think that when I apply a few layers it can become too much. But applying it lightly with a fluffy brush to matte the face down, removes any unwanted shine without adding too much product. It probably lasts 4 hours before my oily parts come creeping through. It doesn't completely eliminate the oil but does a good job at keeping skin looking matte. It photographs ok, It doesnt have too much "ghost face" unlike some powders.

Overall I do think this is a good drugstore product. The Rimmel Stay Matte Powder really lives up to its claims and my expectations of a setting powder. This is the second one I've purchased and I can see myself buying it again in the future. I think the packaging could be a bit better, but I presume its like that to keep the price down as £3.99 is a bargain for a decent powder! Its not replacing my MSF natural, but its a highly recommended product from me I'm even filing under my favourites tag!
