When the weather changes, I always change my beauty routine. As the weather warms, I prefer thinner, lighter coverage with less oil as opposed to the hydrating products I use in the winter. I’m happy to say it’s time to start transitioning into spring and summer beauty products – yay! So to kick it off, I took the Stay Matte Challenge by Rimmel London.
To be honest, this is one of the first times I’ve tried Rimmel London. I did wear their BB Cream last summer and liked it, but besides that, this is my only experience with the brand and I have to say, I wasn’t disappointed. I expected the ‘Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation’ to be fairly sheer with light coverage, but to my surprise, you actually don’t need a lot at all to get nice coverage. Since it is mousse, the texture is something I’m not used to, but I do like it. It’s lightweight, yet covers my imperfections and evens my skin tone. I must warn you again though: you do not need much of this product to get the job done! Just a pearl sized amount is more than enough.
Another thing I liked is that it is matte, yet it doesn’t feel dry at all. It helps keep skin from appearing oily, which is definitely a must on those warmer days. All in all, I liked this product more than I thought I would. I’ll have to keep using it on a regular basis to decide if I’ll make the ‘Stay Matte Switch’, but so far, so good!
Have you ever tried Rimmel London’s Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation? How did you like it?
