I've not been feeling that great the past few days which led to me not feeling as up to writing as I usually do. I don't feel that today's post is my best work, but it is at a point where there is nothing more can be done while I feel like this.
I thought I'd share my thoughts on the Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation. I rarely buy foundations other than my Loreal True Match foundation or my Rimmel Match Perfection foundation, but this caught my interest last month after seeing other bloggers write about it.
It is the first foundation I have ever tried that is in a squeezy tube which I think will make a big difference at the end when trying to get the last little drops of product out. The texture is noted as being ' liquid mousse' and 'lightweight'. I don't particularly agree with those words; I found the texture to be less liquid and more just straight up mousse. It is similar in texture to Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse ,but a bit creamier. It is also not totally lightweight due to the slightly thicker formulation. I love that though! It gives me a medium to full coverage which is what I prefer in a foundation to reduce the appearance of my freckles.
I picked up the foundation in the shade 010 Light Porcelain which matches my skin colour perfectly (though it does look quite yellow in my swatches). I find it so hard to get a foundation in my skin colour, what with me being so pale, so for this to match exactly is amazing.
The matte effect of this foundation has excellent staying power. I use it without a foundation primer and only lightly use my Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder to set it. I don't have to reapply any more powder thought the day which can attest to how matte the actual foundation is on it's own.
Have you tried this foundation yet?
