Review: Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you probably know that I struggle with my oily skin. Wait, that's not all. I not only have oily skin but I also deal with dry patches. My skin produces oil throughout the day but the surface of my skin has dry patches. This is the reason why I cannot get myself to try matte foundations; they tend to look horrible on my skin.
Today, I will be reviewing the Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation. I decided to give it a shot because it was very affordable, $5.49 in my local drugstore.
As you can see, it claims to be lightweight and have shine control. It was definitely not lightweight to me; I felt that I was wearing makeup, in this case foundation. It has a matte finish and had shine control for about 3 hours before I was in desperate need of a blotting sheet.

As I mentioned earlier, although I have oily skin, I deal with dry patches. This foundation adhered to my dry patches no matter if I used a moisturizer or a primer. It did not have a natural look at all, which is to be expected for a matte finish.

This foundation has medium to buildable full coverage although I do not recommend layering it as it may get too thick and heavy on the skin.
 This is the lightest shade from the line, which is 010 light porcelain.

Overall, I really like the coverage of this foundation but I would not recommend it to people with dry skin. If you struggle with dry patches like me then you should skip this foundation. It also doesn't look natural; it will look like you are using makeup. So if you're into the more natural looking foundations, this is not for you.

 Love, Chris
