Rimmel Clear Complexion Transparent Powder Review TheFuss.co.ukKeep your skin looking matte and fresh with the Rimmel Clear Complexion Transparent Powder, affordable and easy to use, you won’t be disappointed when you pick this up in Boots.

  • Clarifying, anti-shine powder
  • Designed with ingredients to help reduce spots
  • Leaves skin looking matte
  • Blends easily on the skin
  • Designed to suit every skin tone

The skin clarifying and mattifying pressed powder aims to give you a clear complexion and shine-free skin with up to five hours wear.

The Rimmel Clear Complexion Clarifying Powder comes in a palm-sized Tiffany-blue coloured round tub with a transparent plastic lid. The packaging isn’t the best, it does feel quite cheap and flimsy, but for the price of the product, you really can’t complain. One thing that must be noted is that the lid has difficulty staying put, so don’t carry this around in your handbag freely all day, otherwise, you’ll end up with powder all over the inside of your bag. Make sure to keep it in a little compartment or a makeup bag if you are transporting it around with you.

Rimmel Clear Complexion Transparent Powder Review TheFuss.co.ukThe powder is easy to apply, a quick sweep over the face and your skin is instantly mattified, without looking cakey. The finely milled powder is extremely lightweight, it feels like you have nothing else on your face. Depending on your skin type you might notice that you need a touch up around the four-hour mark, but generally speaking, this powder lasts quite well.


Cheap, easily available, mattifies skin, shine-free, lasts well considering the price, transparent colour designed for multiple skin tones


The packaging lets this product down – but you can’t really complain considering the price

Bottom line

The Rimmel Clear Complexion Transparent Powder might have a little price, but it certainly makes an impact to your makeup routine, leaving you with beautifully matte skin that looks natural.

The lightweight powder is soft on the skin, and is hard to detect once you've sweeped it across your face. We love that you can easily pick this powder up without having to worry about picking the wrong shade, thanks to the transparent colour.

This powder is something you'll find yourself reaching for every day, as it doesn't feel heavy on the skin, and just a quick sweep with a brush and you're done. For less than £4 you get a powder that's ideal at setting concealer, CC or BB creams and foundations leaving you with skin that doesn't look cakey, but matte and fresh.
