Comments about Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation:

I used this product all over my face. I have oily/ combination skin. So I had some dry spots that the product clanged to. But I think it will be perfect for the summer time because it really kept me matte and I love that! I will try other matte foundations before I repurchase this one though.

eh....it's all right. ish.

Comments about Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation:

I bought this after reading the umteenth comment online from someone who declared this to be their holy grail foundation. if nothing else, it serves as a great reminder that everyone's skin is different, because wow, it does NOT work for me. It's most definitely matte, and didn't oxidize or do anything crazy, but for the life of me I can't get a smooth semi natural finish-no matter how hard I try. I've tried fingers, foundation brushes, stippling brushes, cosmetic sponges, and buffing, but it always ends up makjng my face loom dull and dry. It clings and cakes to any peach fuzz or dry skin, amd builds up like crazy in any fine lines. I'm going to try using a beauty blender next, as I live in hope. Anyway; I've definitely used worse foundations, but I've also used much better.

        Comments about Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation:

        This was my first foundation and it is definitely my favorite!!! It has the perfect amount of coverage without feeling thick. The packaging said it was feather light - that is so true!!! Can't beat this product and especially for the amazing price! ;)

          I like it at first but then after about 5 hours, I look blotchy cakey and flakey and I am using a setting powder and primer. Will not buy this again but I like most of the Rimmell line.

            Comments about Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation:

            I have searched for years and years trying to find the perfect foundation and this is it. Rimmel's Stay Matte foundation is everything I could've ever wished for in a foundation. I have very very pale skin, so it has always been a nightmare trying to find a foundation that matches my skin tone and doesn't make me look orange. I bought the shade Light Porcelain and I am amazed at how perfectly it matches my pale skin. It does not look fake or cakey, it lasts all day, has excellent coverage, and controls oil like it claims. Also, it looks great in pictures and doesn't wash out my face when the flash is on. I hope Rimmel never stops making this product. This is a perfect 10.

            I bought this because of the good reviews and when I first put it on i thought it looked nice. 6 hours later i look in the mirror and i see blotchy patches and as if the foundation darkened. Im usually beige but i bought this in ivory because it looked the same as beige on the package. BIG NO NO!!! Ivory is soooo dark... This foundation is what you get for your money.

              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!
