    Comments about Rimmel London Stay Matte Primer:

    This isn't necessarily a bad product. I just didn't like it. I prefer my E.L.F. mineral infused primer and Revlon Photoready. They get the job done. This one did not.

      Comments about Rimmel London Stay Matte Primer:

      I have terrible oily skin. Ill get out of the shower, and 30 minuets later(even if i dont put any makeup on) my forehead and nose will start to get oily.

      I used to use Sephora's anti-shine primer, which was ok, only worked for a few hours. This product lasts me my full 8 hour work day. Plus it is SO much cheaper and sephoras brand!

      I picked it up only because of the price and I was almost out of primer. HIGHLY recommend this product!!!

      Not Too Shabby

            Comments about Rimmel London Stay Matte Primer:

            I have sensitive combination skin that is prone to breakouts. I got this on my hunt to find something to tone down the oiliness I've been experiencing lately.

            I found putting this directly on my skin then rubbing it in made it lumpy and create white clumps of product on my face.

            The trick is to get it warm and worked in your fingers, THEN pat it, not rub it, on the face. When I did that, it worked/looked great. It does leave a bit of a white cast on the skin, but I have red undertones so it balanced that out for me and I liked that aspect of it.

            It was effective and long lasting, even through sweat. Did not clog my pores or make me break out. But I could only wear it alone over moisturizer. Could NOT get makeup on over it and looking decent, but I didn't care because I don't wear foundation anyway. I've moved on to Tarte for my every day primer, but I still kept and like this. Worth a try.

              I have very oily skin and have tried more primers than I can count. I received the Stay Matte Foundation to try through a program before and was not thrilled, but purchased this on a whim on a recent visit to Ulta. I love the lightweight creamy texture and it really does a wonderful job of keeping my skin matte and my foundation on. Will definitely be purchasing again!

                Comments about Rimmel London Stay Matte Primer:

                This primer is fantastic! I have applied the same foundations both with and without this primer and the differences really are noticeable. My makeup lasts longer and is less splotchy by the end of the day after using the Rimmel London Stay Matte primer. My biggest tip is to make sure you you let your moisturizer completely dry before applying the primer to your skin otherwise the two products may not blend well and cause clumping. Another tip is to press this primer into your skin as though it is foundation rather than smoothing it over your skin like it's a moisturizer - because it's not! Other than that, if you use this product correctly, you'll be amazed!

                  Comments about Rimmel London Stay Matte Primer:

                  I wanted a primer that helped keep excess shine away without having to pay for something more expensive. This works very well under mineral makeup and drier cream foundations, and keeps my normal/sensitive skin shine-free for at least 6-8 hours. I did have a bit of oil breakthrough on my nose and chin after 8 hours, but still, 8 hours of no shine! Definitely worth a try.

                    Other primers I've tried tend to flake or crumble if you accidentally add too much. This primer has no issues in that department. Blends beautifully and gives a nice matte finish to skin. Feels light and airy rather than cakey. Makes skin feel smooth. Only issue is it doesn't last as long as I would like. But in terms of cheap primers this one is a must! Even beats out most high end primers I've tried.

                      You can wear this alone or under makeup and it keeps you feeling fresh and shine free/ shine minimized. I swear when I wear this primer my makeup lasts so much longer and still looks great throughout the day. Your skin looks smoother, not oily, and just feels better. The best part is that this primer doesn't break me out and makes it feel like my skin can actually breathe. I feel like this primer is absolutely essential to oily skinned people such as myself and I highly recommend it.

                        My new favorite primer! I've used a lot of different primers from Too Faced to Smashbox and this one works the best for me. It minimizes pores, prevents shine, and feels weightless. I suggest using it with the Stay Matte foundation. I use it before the foundation and sometimes on top of it if I see a little shine later in the day. It works better than powder because it lasts longer and doesn't look cakey. Great product at a great price!
