    Comments about Rimmel London Stay Matte Primer:

    I chose to buy to this product randomly when my other more expensive primer ran out, and didn't expect much from it since it was only a little over $5 when I got it at Target. However, when I tried it for the first time I was amazed at how great it worked! It's a slightly thicker consistency but applies smoothly under my foundation and makes my face look matte and flawless all day. I have combination skin which can get oily at times, but this primer completely helps to keep my face shine free. This primer is absolutely amazing for the price and I'll continue to buy it.

      Comments about Rimmel London Stay Matte Primer:

      I have been using this for over a week and am really liking it. Make sure when you use it that you let it set for a few minutes before applying foundation. Feels greasy at first but it dries to a nice matte finish. I have acne prone/combo skin and haven't noticed any breaking out yet. My skin tends to get oily after about 5 hours of makeup wear and i have noticed that it doesn't get oily until about 7 or 8 hours later now. I'm sure there are other great primers out there but i love the price and it works for me so far!

        This does not break me out. I'm always so scared to try new things especially on my face because everything tends to break me out. This primer keeps me matte throughout the day and it doesn't give that oily slick feeling most primers give on the face.

          Comments about Rimmel London Stay Matte Primer:

          After trying another product that didn't work, I was hesitant to give another drugstore brand primer a chance. However, after reading reviews I opted to purchase. I have normal to oily skin. My forehead in particular is extra oily. I need a product that does not add a tint but that will help hold the oil at bay. Much to my surprise this product did just that. Very lightweight and easy to apply. It did not dry my skin with the matte finish, in fact it felt smooth after applying. I have used both under powder and with out powder. With powder the results last a little longer but I can go a good 6hrs with out my skin becoming a grease slick. I would recommend this product.

              Comments about Rimmel London Stay Matte Primer:

              I've been trying to find a nice, inexpensive primer for a while now, and had seen the great comments others users have left about this one. I wanted desperately to like this product, but unfortunately, it didn't work at all for me.

              I found the forumla incredibly thick, to the point where applying it was difficult. It didn't blend well and when it dried, it left a white powder all over my face that resembled chalk dust... Not an attractive look at all. Even when I applied foundation over it, my makeup looked caked on and cheap, an issue I'd never had before. I am very fair and have combination skin. I'm not sure if either had anything to do with my experience, but whatever it is, my search for a great primer continues.

              use it daily under foundation and it's good alone without foundation too. It's great for the price too

                I use this product daily before applying foundation. I normally use the porefessional by Benefit, but this is a great drug store alternative. and you cant beat the price. I also like to use this on no-makeup Mondays!!! it just mattifies your face.

                  I get shiny skin and I was looking for a product that would make my skin look matte. This is the first product I bought with "Matte" on it. So far, I like the way it works. It visibly makes my skin look less shiny and more natural. It lasted a few hours too which was nice. However, after about 4-5 hours I noticed my t-zone area was getting a bit shiny and had to apply some powder. If you're on a low budget, I would definitely try this one.

                      I thought I'd give it a try because I ran out of my normal product. However, it was not effective for me. I expected a "matte" finish but my skin looked oily only after a few hours.
