Hi gals! So for today’s post I’m sharing with you my thoughts on Rimmel’s Stay Matte Foundation. It is a liquid mousse foundation. I purchased it in the shade 091 Light Ivory, which is the second to lightest shade. It comes in 8 different shades, Light Porcelain being the lightest and Sand being the darkest shade. Now I did give kind of a mini review/first impression of this product on my MOD: Blackhawks Parade and Rally post. For this review I’m going to list the claims and then state yes or no and any reasons, and then give my numerical rank out of 5.
Liquid Mousse: Yes. It comes out of the tube like a mousse and when applied to the skin it liquefies and just glides across the skin.
Light Weight: Yes. Until the heat took over, then it felt kind of sticky.
Oil Free: Yes.
Shine Control: Yes.
Blends well: Yes.
Natural Matte Finish: Yes. I loved the finish of this product.
Minimize Pores: NO. I’ve tried this with and without a primer, in high heat and just plain ol’ every day. I could see my pores both ways.
A couple of other things:
I went out to eat and when I wiped my mouth it kind of peeled/rolled off my face. It was kind of strange. It also didn’t stay all day. I was surprised to see hardly any foundation on my makeup wipe. I also want to say that I do tend to have much oiler skin in the summer months and thought that this would be a good solution, however, my skin was still too much on the dry side. This foundation clung to my dry spots as the day wore on. I feel that if you have true oily skin you will like this. If you have combo skin, this may or may not work for you.
Final Rating: 3/5
