I was skeptical to try this setting powder. I tend to be a fan of BareMinerals powder foundation to set my liquid foundation. Using both gets me a very full coverage effect.
As we are heading into warmer months I wanted a lighter option that would look more natural and effortless for the spring and summer.
I use the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder over my holy grail L’Oreal True Match liquid foundation. The powder really does leave me looking matte all day and my foundation doesn’t break up until well into the evening. Then I reapply the powder to my oily problem areas and extend the wear of my foundation.
Since it is a pressed, translucent powder, don’t expect it to take the place of a full coverage powder.
But, this is a great drugstore product and you can’t beat the price. It retails for under $5.
