Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation Review

I was very excited to find out that I was chosen by Influester to test Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation from Rimmel London.  I hate shine.  Living in Florida it is often hard to avoid.  Think humidity.  That with my true combination skin . . . shine shine shine!

 I received Rimmel London's Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation in shade 203 - True Beige.  The first thing I did was open the tube to give it a sniff.  I can't have something on my face that has a strong scent.  Safe.  It has just a light kind of powder scent. Once on, it is not noticeable after a few minutes.

The real test.  I applied it with just my fingertips.  It is thicker than I am used to but it glides right on and spreads easily.  No sticky, tacky, or greasy feel.  On my skin it is actually lightweight feeling.  I don't feel like something is on my skin.  It's buildable so the coverage can be sheer or full.  Flaws and pesky pores disappear.  I find the finish to be like I've used powder.  Saves me a step there.  Here it is and I'm loving the look!

After a full day I found it really helped control shine.  I didn't look like an oil slick or have to blot.  This foundation does have a bit of a drier feel to it I believe from the matte properties.  If you have dry or flaky skin, definitely apply a moisturizer first and let it absorb for a few minutes before applying Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation.  My only complaint is that is does not have SPF.  Otherwise, it's a great product for those needing a foundation with shine control.  Makes sure to check out this product here :
