When I saw this on display in my favorite drugstore (CVS) I knew I had to try it. I have very oily skin so anything with the word “matte” in it attracts me like a moth to a flame. Keep reading to find out what I really think about this “matte” foundation.
Product Review: Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation
What They Say:
This foundation claims to be “Feather-light, liquid mousse blends flawlessly for natural-looking, all day shine control. Silky smooth baby-soft finish. Lightweight texture won’t feel heavy or greasy.”
After trying it out for a couple weeks I can say it does live up to most of its claims. It stays matte for a good portion of the day, looks flawless on the skin, and is full coverage. The only downfall I have seen is, it is a little bit heavy when first applied, but if you blend it out and top it off with a powder it will tone it down. To me this is very comparable to some higher end matte foundations I’ve tried for a fraction of the price. I found this at CVS for $4.99 and it comes in 8 different shades. Buy here.
Packaging and How I use it:
This foundation comes in a squeeze tube and is easy to apply. I only need about two pea sized drops onto a wet Beauty Blender and it is plenty to cover my face. A little goes a long way with this foundation, don’t apply too much or you’ll look like a cake monster. I also use a primer under it and top it off with powder for extra staying power. I’m telling you, I’ve got crazy oily skin, which I know I will be thankful for one day! :)
I am going to rate this a 9 out of 10 because it really does a great job of staying matte for long time and it also has great coverage, but can be a little thick. I would recommend this foundation to anyone with oily, combo, or normal skin. If you have dry skin I would stay away from this.
