I have also been really into Rimmel London's whole line of makeup lately. Their Lash Accelerator Endless mascara is amazing and they have great eyeliners, eyeshadows, lipstick, lip gloss, BB cream and everything else. I really have yet to not like something of theirs that I have tried.
So when Influenster gave me the chance to test out the new Stay Matte Liquid Foundation (for free!) I was super excited. It comes in 8 different shades so you can find one that works great for you. Mine is in "True Ivory" and it matches my skin color perfectly.
website says this about it:
"A feather light, oil free formula with an airy mousse texture that won’t feel heavy or greasy. Delivers all day shine control and blends flawlessly for a natural looking matte finish. Minimizes the appearance of pores. The weight is over – finally, shine has met its matte."
I have to say I agree with most of what they say. It has a super light feel to it, when you're putting it on and once it's on your face. It doesn't feel heavy or greasy. You don't have to use very much of it, and it's still a full coverage foundation. And the matte part is no joke. It looks like I've got powder on without using any. And it does last all day. Towards the end of the day, I do have some oil, but I tend to have really oily skin so that's to be expected. I don't think anything will make my face completely oil free. But overall, it's a great foundation if you want something really light with full coverage. I even got the opinion of a friend with pretty bad acne and red marks to cover up and she gave it her stamp of approval. Just the foundation was enough to give her the coverage she needed and the look of clear skin. Also without looking like she had a ton of makeup caked on.
So here's my typical school day look, just foundation, a little blush, eyeliner and mascara.
I like that I look simple and not like I have a ton of makeup on. It also feels that way because the foundation is so light. Overall, I give this foundation two thumbs up and I will most likely be buying it again. Thank you to Influenster again for sending it to me, and thanks to Rimmel London for another great makeup product!
