          Comments about Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation:

          When I first put it on I loved it. It looked so good. After an hour my pores looked much bigger and I looked very cakey. It also made me break out. I love the formula and thickness though.

            I use this product for when I go to work and it covers my red cheeks and blemishes perfectly! It's an amazing finish, and I usually use this with the Rimmel pressed powder. Makes my skin look flawless!

                  This product is very thick and heavy. It might work if you are looking for heavy coverage, but it did not please me. It was difficult to apply because of its consistency. Unfortunately, I would not repurchase. ):

                  Comments about Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation:

                  I have a love-hate relationship with this foundation. I have the shades Porcelain and Light Ivory (repurchased once.) I have very fair skin, so I started off with Porcelain. The foundation itself has a yellow-ish undertone, but I have a pink undertone. I went a shade darker to Light Ivory, which was a little bit better. The problem with it was it oxidized so badly, I might as well had put an orange marker on my face. I've paired both shades with the Stay Matte powder, which helped with any discoloration. I haven't seen it with Porcelain, but with Light Ivory, you have to be careful with how much you apply. You can go full-coverage, but it's safer with medium. I was shopping wearing Light Ivory when I looked in the mirror and saw that it had patched and hardened up on my jaw line. I used less the next day and it was fine. This does end up looking a bit cakey, despite it's 'natural looking' claim. A little does go a long way, keep that in mind. If you use the product right, it's definitely good and may end up being a favorite.

                  Comments about Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation:

                  I only recently purchased this for the first time. I had been using a product that was supposed to be the lightest shade and was still too dark for me, so I was in the market to try something new. I had heard good things about this product and when I saw how cheap it was compared to everything else, I grabbed it up. And, boy am I glad I did! I barely had to use concealer at all. I have very oily skin, but once I put this on, you would never guess it. It matched my skin tone flawlessly. It even made the rest of my makeup look better! I can't recommend it highly enough.

                  Comments about Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation:

                  This product was not the best quality, nor was it the worst. It is good for a standby foundation, or one that you use when you run out of your usual product. It does not look like your natural skin, but it covers red spots or blotches.

                      Amazing foundation. I can't believe it only cost like $5! The coverage is great, but not too thick. The matte finish is awesome. I used the stay matte primer underneath this foundation & it lasted all day! I typically get shiny about an hour after foundation application & use blotting sheets just about every hour. With this foundation/primer combo I wasn't shiny until the early afternoon & only blotted twice all day! I've had it on for 10 hours and it's still going strong. Super excited about this purchase!
