Rimmel Stay Matte | My New Favourite Setting Powder

I came across Rimmel's Stay Matte Powder about two weeks ago when I was on the lookout for a setting powder that didn't leave my face cakey/ghost-like, just natural looking. I'm usually so busy at work that I never get the chance to stop and touch up my face, so I really needed a product that would last majority of the working day. I have only ever been a fan of Rimmel's lipsticks so I wasn't expecting much but was more than happy to try given the price point.


I love how lightweight and silky it goes on, it really feels like a high end powder worth about triple the price. This powder has really been put to the test with our 40 degree heat and humidity lately, and given that it promises 5 hours of natural shine control, I would definitely say that it delivers beyond that.

I'm so impressed with it so I just had to share! I will definitely be re-purchasing :)

 Here's the proof - completely shine free after a long day!

*Let me know if you purchase this product and how you like it! Also, can anyone recommend a pink toned/matte blush that they're loving at the moment? I've nearly gone through both my Nars in Orgasm and Deep Throat and want to try something new. Thanks so much in advance!!



  1. I've been looking at this powder at the drugstore for a while, maybe i should give it a try!



  2. I think Blushbaby by Mac would look gorgeous on you! It is more brown-pink, but I think it would look nice:) I just ordered it myself! Also, what are you wearing on your lips? I love it!
