Today's review is of a bit of a cult product, namely the Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder. I finally got my hands on this very coveted item in Budapest and decided to go for the shade Translucent (thankfully, since I also got the Wake me up foundation and the lightest shade they had was waaaay too dark for me - I guess I'll keep it for summertime).

In the last photo, you can see what the powder looks like on my skin applied over the Wake me up foundation, also by Rimmel. It really does an amazing job mattifying the skin and it gives it almost an airbrushed finish - my skin looks a lot silkier when I use this powder. I've grown out of pressed powders lately, but I wanted to give this a try nonetheless as everyone loves it so much. I have to say I was quite impressed as it really does the job perfectly! My skin does start to shine in about 4 hours, but it's nothing a quick blot cannot fix.

The only problem I have with this is the packaging. It is really really cheaply made - my compact was broken when I bought it! Personally, I would pay an euro or two more if they added a mirror and made the whole thing a bit sturdier. Nonetheless, at the price of 5€, this is the best pressed powder I've tried in ages, I daresay I love it more than MAC's MSF Natural (gasp!).
