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.)
In celebration of the new product, Rimmel London is hosting a fun sweepstakes AND contest with amazing prizes. Now that I’ve taken the Stay Matte Challenge, why not give it a try?
