Beauty Friday: Rimmel’s Stay Matte Long Lasting Pressed Powder in Transparent

It’s been another long week and I can smell the weekend! How will your weekend be like? I think I just want to sleep all day tomorrow – that’s how tired I’ve been.  With the holidays coming up, the traffic in Manila just went crazier and honestly, I’m sick of it.

Hmm, SLEEPING IN…sounds like a good plan. 🙂

But before all that, let’s have a quick makeup review.


Nothing sets makeup better than a good finishing powder like this well-raved about pressed powder from Rimmel.  I usually prefer loose powder to set my foundation or BB creams.  Nevertheless, being a makeup junkie who wants to try everything, I got this Rimmel Stay Matte Long Lasting Pressed Powder.  All I have are words of love for it.



I love how the shade is Transparent and it really is transparent enough.

I love that it doesn’t mix with the shades of my BB creams or foundations.

I love to use it with a big powder brush to set my makeup, to make the skin matte, and banish oiliness.

I love that it stays on the skin for a long time, for about 6 hours, until it’s time to retouch.


When I apply BB creams or cream foundations, I apply a powder foundation over it to strengthen the coverage, make it last longer and remove the shine, before putting on this finishing powder to seal everything in.  However, recently I also tried applying it over BB cream right away, without powder foundation.  And I found out that it works quite well, although not in terms of improving the coverage. I guess that’s because it’s supposed to be transparent.

Have you tried this one yet?
