Rimmel Stay Matte powder has been raved and talked about quite a bit in the beauty community. I, however, have been a die-hard Maybelline Dream Matte Powder girl ever since Missglamorrazzi talked about using it in one of her Youtube videos. But recently after running out of my beloved Dream Matte, I decided to give Rimmel a try. It is about £3 cheaper after all!
-Rimmel Stay Matte Powder is much longer lasting than the Dream Matte Powder, while I needed to touch up at work with Dream Matte, the Rimmel Powder lasts all day.
-Rimmel Stay Matte Powder also has better coverage than the Maybelline Dream Matte, but you also have to be careful not to apply too much of the Rimmel Stay Matte or it can look cakey.
-Price wise, Rimmel wins at £3.99 compared to Maybelline at £7.19.
-My one negative though is the packaging of the Rimmel Stay Matte powder feels so flimsy and like it could crack open any minute. I’m afraid to put it in my handbag because I think it would get battered. I much prefer the clam shell style Maybelline packaging, it feels a lot sturdier.
Although packaging is an issue, I think I am a convert. The quality and performance of the Stay Matte powder make it such a bargain! I don’t miss my Maybelline Dream Matte the least bit so I think when I repurchase it will be Rimmel all the way!
