Rimmel London’s Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation

There are a lot of beauty products and brands that I have stood by for years, but foundation has sadly, been one of those products I have never quite fallen into perfect harmony with.  Recently, Rimmel London sent me their Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation, and I was excited to try it (obviously, I’m a big Rimmel fan!) and finding a great foundation has been at the top of my beauty list.

Before I had even had a chance to put the foundation on, the formula itself nearly stopped me in my tracks.  Your typical foundation is liquidy and requires a bit of skill with a great foundation brush.  Rimmel’s Stay Matte Liquid Moussee Foundation has some density, like a cream, but goes on super lightweight, like a liquid makeup.  I fell for the texture instantly.  The result: a pretty flawless cover – no caking, no extra weight, and no shine, plus a perfect matte finish.  I cannot stress how important that matte coverage is to me – Miami can get seriously hot, and a shiny nose or forehead is just not okay in my makeup game.  I use a mattifying powder to keep shine down, but I always find myself having to touch up throughout the day.  Rimmel’s foundation is really matte, all on its own.


(By the way, I didn’t do any editing to the photo at all because I wanted you to see how the makeup looks, in plain old sunlight, plus my very pale pale skin.)

    I just tried their stay matte foundation and really liked it. Sometimes drugstore products are just as good as high-end ones, right?!

    • Lexi

      Definitely! Plus, I’m a huge fan of spending way too long in a drugstore finding all of the new beauty stuff! 🙂

    • Lexi

      Oh my gosh, Emma – you are so sweet!

    • Lexi

      Thank you! I was seriously impressed!

  2. Alyssa

    Like you, I’m not a big foundation person, but when I do wear it I want it sheer and light. Sounds like this fits the bill!

  3. Andi

    I will have to try it!

  4. Lili

    I actually love this foundation despite some conflicting reviews in youtube. I just use a radiant primer underneath so it wont be too flat on my skin. Works well all the time!

    • Lexi

      Oh primer is a really good idea! Will definitely try that. 🙂

  5. Tonie

    Such a flawless look! I need to get myself to a drugstore! I’m adding this to the the Lasting Finish lipstick that I want to try.

    • Lexi

      Yay, so glad you like!!

  6. Wow! You look so flawless… and no Photoshop to boot. Will be buying this for sure!

    • Lexi

      Aww thank you so much!!
