I received the not-yet-released Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation complimentary from Influenster and I must say, I’m pleasantly surprised!
It’s feather light and quite comfortable on my skin, and actually achieves a matte finish that lasts almost all day without having to use loose powder or doing touch-ups throughout the day. It blends flawlessly and makes my skin look almost airbrushed. If I have a blemish, I can simply go over that area with a little extra of the foundation and it covers as well as a concealer.
The ONLY thing that I would complain about is that if I have an extremely dry area of my skin, the foundation makes it even drier, and with the foundation on it begins to look cakey and flaky. However, I’ve learned to combat this issue by making sure I put on moisturizer under the foundation. I will probably end up making this my go-to foundation once it’s released, since it’s much cheaper than the other makeup I’ve been using, and doesn’t require that extra step of loose powder.
Have you used a mattifying foundation that you love? This seems to be the best I’ve tried yet.
