Rimmel London Stay Matte foundation.
Thursday, 10 September 2015
I have been seeing so many good reviews about this foundation so I decided to bite the bullet and try it out myself. I picked it up from my local Wilkos for £5.98, my boyfriend was less than impressed that such a tiny bottle cost nearly £6. I'm always on the search for a light foundation for my fair skin and with all the hype I thought it may be too good to be true, I was proved very very wrong! I'm not a big fan of have a dewy looking face, it just makes me feel greasy and looks horrid on me so I prefer a matte finish.
The tube is very small and looks like it would run out quickly but a little does go a long way in my case, this foundation is pefect for me as it's best for oil to combination skin and provided me with medium coverage, it I go over it a second time it gives me full coverage. It comes in eight different shades that range from medium skin tone to fair as I said before I have a very fair skin tone, The porcelain shade is a perfect fit for my skin tone, well near enough! My face has always been light than the rest of my body so it matches with my neck rather then my face. To apply this foundation I use the real techniques buffing brush which I got with my Real techniques core collection from Boots. The reason I prefer using this brush is because it spreads the foundation out more evenly than my fingers do and the foundation does dry very fast.
This foundation is truly a matte finish and if you do have oily or combination skin give it a go, My biggest issue is that is has brought me out in spots around my nose, I never get spots around that area. My skin has started to get use to the foundation now so my breakout's have become less. I love the consistency of the foundation and think it would work well in a pump bottle because sometimes I squeeze too much out of the bottle. I you want to try this out you can get it from Boots for £5.99 (1p difference in price to Wilkos).
