Rimmel Stay Matte Powder

Hello! If you read my blog regularly then you will know that I have a very oily nose and the rest of my skin is normal. I only use face powder on my t zone and I like it to control the oil as much as possible so I don't have to reapply powder very much throughout the day.

When I first heard about the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder, it sounded perfect and I kept reading really good reviews on it! I decided to get the Transparent colour which took me a little while to find as they seemed to be sold out a lot, so when I finally found it I was happy!


I have tried a lot of different powders, high end and low end to try and control my oily nose and this one is easily the best! The packaging isn't amazing at all. It feels quite cheap and the lid isn't secure so I wouldn't want to travel with this, however the powder itself is incredible so I don't really mind about the packaging!

Usually when I powder my t zone, my nose will still get oily throughout the day and I will have to reapply powder a couple of times. My makeup always comes off my nose as well because it gets so oily!

When I use this powder though, my nose stays pretty much matte all day and does not look at all oily which is amazing! Also, because my nose stays matte, my foundation stays put all day and doesn't slide off! I am so impressed with this powder and the fact that it keeps my very oily nose, pretty much completely matte. My makeup looks the same at the end of the day as it did at the beginning.


I use my Bobbi Brown Powder Brush to apply this which is my new favourite brush! It is the softest brush I have ever used and applies powder amazingly well. Sometimes when I buff powder onto my skin, my concealer and foundation moves or comes off, however this brush is so soft, it doesn't move any makeup underneath which is great!

Overall, I would highly recommend this powder! It is the best powder I have ever used to control my oil and set my makeup. The best part is, it only costs £3.99 here. Amazing!

What is your favourite powder? Have you tried this one before?

    1. I love mac msf but this is a lot better for my skin because it controls the oil! I would definitely recommend this even if your skin is not oily though as it generally just sets makeup amazingly :) xx

  11. I have seen this at drug stores but I haven't known whether it is any good or not but for the price I think I will try it! I also have an oily nose/t-zone but the rest of my face is normal so I think it would be useful!

  12. I've used about two of these. For the price I think they're one of the best and underrated drugstore products out there!

  14. I really need to get this next time I'm at the drugstore! I too suffer from an oily nose despite having otherwise normal to dry skin on the rest of my face. I now rely on powder-covered blotting sheets to save my nose throughout the day, but it definitely would be nice not to have to use them in the first place! Thanks for the review! :)

    1. I used to use blotting paper as well! They were good but it is a hassle to have to use them and sometimes my nose then looked powdery! This sounds perfect for you :) xx

  16. I have been using Stay Matte religiously for years, and haven't tried another one since! It's definitely the best!
    I travel with it all the time, providing you pack everything in properly, it's fine! I've never had a broken lid :)

    1. I think I will be the same! I haven't even been tempted to look at another powder since :) haha! Ooh that's good then - thanks for letting me know! My lid comes off quite easily so that's all I'm worried about but hopefully if I pack it properly then it won't! :) xx

  22. I totally agree-I have quite oily skin and this is perfect :) I like that it isn't to cakey but gives a well rounded coverage that stays on for a while!! Plus its cheap too.

  27. I LOVE that powder. It's the only one I ever buy, for the price it cannot be beaten! My skin isn't oily but by setting the foundation on my t-zone my make up lasts sooo much longer. Plus I hate my skin looking shiny!
