Review - Rimmel Clear Complexion Clarifying Powder

Hey beauties,

Hope you all are well and uptight, having the best days of your life. Wow, this seems to rhyme as well doesn’t it? anyway, today ill be presenting a review for you lovelies on the Clear Complexion Clarifying Powder by Rimmel London.  

It is basically a skin clarifying and mattifying pressed powder which aims to give you a clear and shine free skin upto 5 hrs of its wear.

Rimmel London Says:

- Pure and shine-free finish for up to 5 hours.

- Clarifies skin thanks to PureSkin TM complex known to minimize skin breakouts.

- Controls shine and mattifies skin.

- Contains Natural minerals and is dermatologically tested.

My Thoughts:

I got this item from BOOTS while browsing through the some of the beauty stands there and it immediately caught my attention with its tiffany blue packaging. I was looking for a matte translucent powder that wouldn’t give me a sparkly finish that I really don’t adore.


The Rimmel Clear Complexion Clarifying Powder comes in a palm size tiffany blue coloured round tub with a transparent plastic lid. The packaging isn’t that great but considering all the powder range packaging from Rimmel, they’re all the same. So the packaging really didn’t impress me at all if it wasn’t for the tiffany blue coloured tub. Surprisingly, this product doesn't come with an applicator.


The product, as mentioned, is a pressed powder which seems as if it will give you some colour when applied, is basically a very light nude coloured pressed powder which, when applied, mattifies your skin without giving you any colour whatsoever.

It comes in a net weight of 16 gms (which makes it about 0.56 oz) and in only one shade which is Transparent.

My Verdict:

Personally, I only picked this product just because I was looking for a product that would keep my oily face looking matte through out the day. I have a combination skin but my T-zone is really oily, so I need to mattify it it keep it looking intact during the day when I am out and about. When I got to know that it is a clarifying powder and is known to minimize skin break outs (not that my skin has broken out with any powder or foundation that I have ever used), I instantly got myself one.

Frankly, I really love this product because its just so light as if you have nothing on your face. It does mattify your skin (which I wanted) without adding any hint of colour. You do need to do touch ups every now and then (probably after every 4-5 hrs if you have really oily skin) to avoid oil spillage over your face.

This product would have been even better if Rimmel gives a little more attention to the packaging of its products.

And that's me after applying this product over my foundation.

This product ranges about £4 here in the UK and is readily available in BOOTS and SUPERDRUG (and other leading pharmacies and superstores like ASDA and Sainsburys).

Would I repurchase and recommend:

Definitely!! I think it’s an amazing product for the price you pay. Its rating is about 8/10 on the website which I think is really good


Cheap and readily available

Does what it says, i.e. mattifying face and preventing breakouts.


Re-application after every 4-5 hours depending on your skin type


So ladies, I hope that you enjoyed my review and found it helpful. Let me know what mattifying product do you guys use on your face to mattify your skin and leave it in the comment below. I would love to know.

Till then, stay pretty and get gorgeous everyday.

  20. I like your blog, I don't know if you are still using it or not. :) I have tried this Rimmel powder before and it came out an unnatural orange colour so I wasn't impressed with it at all. Rimmel Stay Matte powder has a shimmer, I am the same as you, I don't want any shimmer in powder, or foundation at all. You can get Collection pressed powder for only £1.99 and this has no shimmer at all. I don't find the need to touch it up either!
