Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation Review!

Hi people!

I recently bought the Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation. I have been a fan of the Stay Matte Powder for years. When I saw Rimmel launched this foundation I just had to try it.

Unfortunately this foundation turned out to be so bad, that I won’t ever be able to go trough the bottle.

It is really thick which makes it really hard to buff into the skin and when it is finally all over your skin, it looks like a cake. Then I tried putting on the Stay Matte powder afterwards and it will just look even worse. As soon as you touch your skin the foundation will slide around so you will end up with weird spots around your skin.

The only nice thing to be said about this is that it’s full coverage, no need for concealer and it actually stays matte all day, but that’s about it.

Have you tried this foundation?

Btw. I know it looks really light on my hand. I had an assistant at Boots swatch it on me and she recommended this colour. It is too light for my face, but matches my neck, which it is all about.

    What a disappointment for you! I got one of those tiny sample sachets and tried it on at home and found that it worked really well. It was easy to apply, settled well on the skin and definitely kept it matte for a long time. I really enjoy wearing the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum – it’s light with great coverage and long lasting wear, so it you haven’t tried this already I would definitely recommend it :o). Xx


    • It did keep matte al day, but I really felt like it was just lying on my skin and not blending in well, Glad to hear you liked it!

    It’s always refreshing to read about products that actually didn’t work out, so now I know what I shouldn’t waste my money on. I’ve never used any Rimmel makeup products before. And will probably avoid buying any unless you feature one that you recommend! : )


    • I actually love Rimmel products, I might do a post on my favourite ones. You know with the good comes the bad 😉
