I have loved every single Rimmel product I’ve tried so when I saw the new Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation in my local CVS, I knew I had to give it a go. As far as foundation goes, I like a semi-matte finish best and being that I have combination skin, I think that I personally need a formula that isn’t drying.
I tested this product out for a few days and unfortunately, it isn’t for me. I was impressed, however, with the foundation’s staying power and the fact that I didn’t have to apply powder at all – all day long. In fact, this foundation lives up to all of its claims – it does feel rather light and definitely “blends flawlessly for natural-looking, all day shine control.”
At the end of the day, I did notice that my skin was looking more dry than usual, even after having applied moisturizer that morning. I had noticeable dry patches on my forehead and on my nose, which is something I try to avoid!
All in all, I think that this is a great foundation for those of you who have very oily skin and would like to keep your face looking as matte as possible. I don’t think it’s a winner for us combination skin types, and for those of you who have dry skin. I’m going to stick with my Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation for now – a formula that I think is perfect for all skin types!
Have you tried out the Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation?
