Comments about Rimmel London Stay Matte Primer:

Okay, so I have mixed feelings about this product. The product does indeed mattify your skin, and the primer looks great by itself! But that's the issue. Once I put on my foundation [and I've tried several with this product now], it wouldn't blend and the primer started to wipe off as I was applying it! It didn't work at all with my foundations. However, if I feel like wearing no makeup and need a bit of extra mattifying​, then this does the job. Not sure if I will repurchase this again.

    Comments about Rimmel London Stay Matte Primer:

    This is a PRIMER so you only need a small amount for it to do its job. I use an almost pea size and dot it evenly on my t-zone area. After I applied Neutrogena oil-free combination skin lotion. Then apply the Rimmel Stay Matte foundation. Even living in Arizona it stays on in the heat.

    Gross

    By Cookie

    from Baton Rouge

    Comments about Rimmel London Stay Matte Primer:

    I wanted to like this, it smoothed on well (even though it feels a little like elmers glue) and made my face feel smooth. But.. After putting foundation on, it was gross. It.. Separated? It looked like I had white crackles all over my skin. I tried applying to only the oily areas of my skin, like my nose, and I got the same effect. Really bummed. Returned it, it was that bad.

            Comments about Rimmel London Stay Matte Primer:

            If you want to look like Casper the Friendly Ghost, then this is the right stuff for you! I have never written a review but this product was so bad I felt I had to stop someone before they made a mistake like I did. I have oily skin and was looking for an expensive primer since I wear makeup daily. It claims you can wear it alone, not the case! Your face will look ashy the whole day if you don't put makeup over it. With makeup, my face was stiff and it created streaks. DO NOT BUY THIS IF YOU ARE A BLACK WOMAN!

              I had used other primers before and they would leave my face super oily even if they were "mattifying". This product does leave you matte and it really helps your makeup last all day!

                Rimmel primer is the only one that is cost effective and easy to use. I have tried several that I have received from Birchbox and this one is tops all.

                I was super excited to try this product, it turned out to be a huge disappointment it doesn't not stand a chance in the heat and humidity.
