Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation Review

Recently i was picked by Influenster to test the new Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation. I received this product complimentary for reviewing and testing purposes. When i do my make up i tend to think of having a shiny face, or rather an oily face, as something to avoid at all costs. A product that promises to work as a foundation while keeping my skin fresh, and matte? Well i had to give that a try!

 The packaging is quite simple, squeeze out product. The coverage is about medium but it really works well as a base for more complex looks or on its own for more minimal looks. I like that it feels light but still covers pores and gives me an almost air brushed look. While you can apply a setting powder you really don't need it. This product doesn't settle into fine lines or wrinkles of the face.

I created this look using the Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation. I kept it very simple and minimalistic. I love how i can achieve the no makeup, makeup look. Stay Matte made my skin look even and smooth. Its no photoshop, but it does a good job of making any imperfections of the face become hidden. I applied Rimmel London Scandaleyes in Retro Glam to my eyes to complete the look and you can add a little gloss if you'd like!

Overall i am quite impressed. I am very used to having to wear a primer, foundation, and setting powder to achieve a look close to this. One product and done is helpful for those who like a minimal routine in the morning but is also good for those who like to also wear blush, highlighter, and do a contour. You wont have that caked on look since your base is so minimal.
