    Comments about Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation:

    This isn't great...it feels like it just sits on top of my pores and looks off. It feels very heavy and wears off easily making my face look patchy

    great product!

    Comments about Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation:

    I love this foundation and let's be real here, you can't beat that price! It delivers wonderful coverage and comes in a variety of shades which is surprising for such a low priced product. But, my only issue with this is it oxidizes, badly! My skin totally changed from the ivory color it said to a tan orange color throughout the day :( i have oily combination skin, and do what I can to prevent this. Great product though, definitely worth a try!

    Perfect Foundation

    • Long Lasting

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Everyday wear

      Comments about Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation:

      This foundation is long lasting and really does stay matte though the day. It feels a bit dry straight out of the tube but it's velvety, smooth, and glides on with ease. A little of this foundation goes a long way!

      Pros

      • True color

      Cons

      • Broke Me Out Immediately

      Best Uses

      • None

      Comments about Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation:

      I was looking for a new foundation, I typically use Maybelline Dream Mousse, I just wanted to try something different. I bought this product went home and put it on. With in 45 seconds, my face started to itch like crazy and then it broke out. I don't have sensitive skin and use a wide range of products from Wet 'n' Wild to Urban Decay to Smashbox.

      Very disappointed

      Comments about Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation:

      A friend of mine tried this and liked it, and I was looking for a cheap foundation I could use when I had planned for a no makeup day but ended up with a meeting or appointment. The price is so low, I figured if I ended up not liking it I wouldn't mind the money wasted. It's a mousse-like texture in tube form. The first time I used it I applied it using a stippling brush, which turned out amazing but I feel put on way too much product, so I prefer to use a beautyblender or my fingers, then use a brush to buff it around my face. I used True Ivory, I believe, and as someone light with more yellow undertones but a very rosy face due to acne scarring, I was blown away by the color matching. It evened out my face perfectly. I did use a primer, so I can't speak for if it would settle not pores or not alone, but with a primer I didn't have any issues. It comes in a smallish tube, but for me at least I found I don't need as much as I think I do, so the tube will last a normal amount of time. This has become my favorite drugstore foundation and I will definitely be repurchasing!

      Comments about Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation:

      I absolutley love this product & as a self proclaimed foundation junkie - there aren't to many foundations that keep me coming back for more. I always find myself being pilled back to this product. It gives a great matte coverage without drying my skin out. I have normal - combination skin and this product does not disrupt the natural balance of my skin, to which I'm grateful. I also have freckles, which I love but they often create some discoloration & I found that this product allows them to show through without the redness.
      My main complaint is the limited color range. I am on the lighter side but their lightest shade is too light & the shade up one is a tad to dark, unless it's summer - so I have to take a light powder and blend really well just to make sure I match. I do warn it can be cakey - mainly for me on the corners of my nose. That is the dryest place on my face & even after moistuizing and buffing it still tends to attract the product - but I feel that is probably to do with my application & not the product fully.

          Comments about Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation:

          This is a very interesting foundation. I was walking down the drugstore aisles and saw this. I had heard about it from different people and decided to kneel down and look for my shade. I was not too impressed by the color selections so I was doubting that they had my shade. I picked up the true ivory shade and looked at it. It was perfect! Then I started thinking of how easy it would be to buy two even if they didn't have my shade because the product is so cheap! I bought it and couldn't wait to try it out! As soon as I started applying it, I fell in love! It's thick (which I like), but not cakey. I placed dots of it on my face then blended with a damp makeup sponge. I loved it. It blended perfectly with my skin tone and covered all I wanted covered. If you want a full full coverage foundation, this one might not be the best because I noticed that it got a little cakey in places that I had put more on. It's perfect for beginners just getting into foundation and learning how to apply it because it is so cheap and easy to use!

          Not so great

          By Kristen

          from St Louis, MO

          Verified Buyer

          Pros

          • Lightweight

          Cons

          • Enhances Pores
          • Oily

          Best Uses

            Comments about Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation:

            I bought this after seeing all the rave reviews. I was very disappointed. It is lightweight which was nice but it enhanced the appearance of my pores even with having a good primer underneath. About 3-4 hours after applying, my face was extremely oily, too. I will continue to use nyx matte foundation. It's around the same price and it's been my go to foundation for over a year now.
