Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation and Primer - Review and Swatches
Rimmel London have so many options for face makeup and we have shared our love of Rimmel match perfection foundation and Stay matte pressed powder before and their match perfect concealer is one of the best budget friendly concealer while lasting finish is one of the best foundation for summers. All in all Rimmel have never disappointed us. Today we are going to share our thoughts about their Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation and Primer. If you have combination, oily skin and summers are still keeping your face shiny then this post is for you.

My Thoughts
Both products come in squeezable tube with screw cap. The foundation as described is liquid mousse have soft airy mousse formula which applies beautifully. This sort of texture is light weight and need very little amount for application. It is oil free and so is suitable for oily and combination skin but dry skin can also use it with good moisturizer.

While it is very light weight and need little amount, the coverage it provide is really good. It is medium to full coverage formula and with matte finish it is really suitable in summers. The application is easy and with any fluffy brush it can be blended easily. The ideal brushes for such product are Sigma F80 flat kabuki or RT buffing brush. Just apply little amount on face with fingers and buff it with brush. You can also use sponge and fingers but with fingers more quantity will be needed and it will also feel heavy on skin. It blends flawlessly and gives you very natural matte finish. It covers almost all imperfections and you might not need any concealer with it. It is similar to Golden Rose mousse foundation which was amazing and i loved it every bit but for the price and ease of use i prefer this one.
 
The primer have white creamy formula which spread and blends easily without leaving any greasy feel behind. If you do not like to use silicon based products then this is perfect for you. It doesn't feel slippery like silicon primers. It provides smooth surface to apply foundation and blur pores and lines for some extent. I think it is better then Maybelline baby skin pore eraser primer as it keeps the skin matte longer then Maybelline. It is white in color but after blending doesn't leave any white cast and absorbs like any cream or lotion. I think it is one of the best drugstore primer.
 
Overall both products are perfect in summers for ones who want matte finish through out the day and needs medium to full coverage. For very oily skin you might need little touch up with pressed powder after 4 to 5 hours on oily zones.

In Favor
  • Packaging is good for both products
  • Primer have creamy formula
  • Primer absorbs without leaving any slippery feel
  • Primer keeps the skin matte for very long then usual
  • Foundation have very nice texture
  • Foundation applies flawlessly It is lightweight and need little amount
  • Keeps the skin matte longer then liquid foundations
  • Both are budget friendly
Not in Favor
  • For dry skin foundation need proper moisturizing
  • Primer take little time to absorb

My rating for both products

4.5/5
