Another day, another foundation :-)
This time I’ve been trying out the Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation.
After using most of my Rimmel ‘Wake Me Up’ Foundation (link) I hit the shops to buy a replacement. I do find I sometimes get a shiny t-zone, so I opted for Rimmel’s Stay Matte Foundation. I purchased shade ‘200 soft beige’ which suits me perfectly during the Summer months.
Rimmel’s Stay Matte Foundation contains Chamomile to help calm the skin, Cucumber extract to clarify, and Cotton to prevent shine. It also has no talc or oil in, meaning this foundation won’t clog your pores.
The packaging says it has upto 12 hours of natural shine control; I must agree, my skin looked flawless and shine-free for the entire day. I was very pleased with this aspect of the product, as I don’t like having to ‘touch up’ my makeup during the day.
I also found the coverage to be very good. It isn’t full coverage like some matte foundations are, yet it covered imperfections and blemishes without looking cakey.
