Review: Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation

28 Mar
I don’t buy a lot of drugstore foundations  because they frequently don’t have testers and I also find it hard to find a color that matches my skin.
When I saw the Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation I decided to give it a try. It was on sale for less than $10 and I’m always looking for a solution to my oily T-zone woes.
 
The Claim : A feather light, oil free formula with an airy mousse texture that won’t feel heavy or greasy. Delivers all day shine control and blends flawlessly for a natural looking matte finish. Minimizes the appearance of pores.
My impression:
  • It does feel very weightless when it is on. I hate feeling like I have a mask of makeup
  • It is very natural looking  and doesn’t cake
  • The squeeze tube is great and doesn’t take up a ton of space
  • You only need a tiny pea sized amount for your whole face (I like to apply it with a damp Beauty Blender for a natural look)
  • It provides medium coverage
I still get a bit of breakthrough shine on my forehead but I have yet to find something that keeps me matte all day and doesn’t’ t look like a mask. This foundation comes in 6 shades which isn’t stellar but even with my fair skin I managed to find one to match.
The Verdict: Good value and worth trying if you can find one that matches your skin tone.
