Really love this powder, but-
I have very oily, acne prone, sensitive skin. I bought this powder wanting something cheap. I usually wear the Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Poreless Foundation or the Loreal Magic Liquid to Powder Foundation. At first, it's very matte and makes your foundation look really beautiful. After about 3-4 hours, I start to get oily so I have to touch up. It's usually in my tzone (nose, chin, and forehead). I do really admire this powder, yet I just hate how often I have to touch up my nose since it's very oily. Also, another con is how easily it can shatter. I feel like the packaging needs to improve. Otherwise, it's great. My HG powder until I find something else.
Wow! This powder is amazing. I have gone through a ton of different powders, expensive and not so expensive. This one of the best I have used. It's extremely light and feathery. You do not need a lot of powder. Some brands you have to keep putting it on until you achieve what you are looking for. By that time you look like you have caked on the makeup. One pass with this powder and you are covered. The transparent is just that. It does not leave a powdery look on your face like some transparent/translucent powders do. I bought this because I have very oily skin and with the products I was using I looked like a big oil slick by the end of the day. This get the oil at bay and my make up looking fresh!
I have really light and oily skin, so using this pressed powder over the top of my BB cream (Garnier Skin Perfecter) stops my face from looking oily and my BB cream from rubbing off. I would definitely recommend this product, I use it every day and it has really changed the feel of my skin when I'm wearing makeup.
Pretty Good Powde.
Not really impressed, especially after all the hype surrounding this Rimmel powder. I have combination to oily skin (with bits of dry patches here and there) and when I apply it in the morning it holds for good 2hrs and then my facial waters are so noticable as if I didn't even bother to put anything at all. However, for those 2hrs, I can say that my skin is looking pretty good, not too matte, but not oily at all.. the perfect middle! I don't think I will repurchase it soon, but I am happy that I tried the so famous powder!
