Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation Review, Swatch and FOTD

Hello Beauties,
Hope everybody is doing Good, today I am going to share Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation review with you all. I know this is a very late review, because I was testing this foundation in different situations. I bought this foundation from slassy.com with Rimmel London Matte pressed powder. What do you think, did this foundation satisfied my requirements??? Let’s see the Review dearies…

Product Description:


Ingredients:

My Experience with Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation:
Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation is coming in a cute square shaped tube, with a scroll type lid.
Pretty compact tube so easily I can carry with me, travel friendly.
The foundation cream texture is very runny liquid almost like Lakme liquid foundation; the smell of the Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation is not so pleasant. (Might be annoying for some beauties)
I had great expectations with this foundation, as the Rimmel London Stay Matte pressed powder was pretty good for me. I have chosen 300 Natural beige shade (my MAC shade no NW43, but I am not sure of this)I have tried this foundation in the night first time; it was ok for me that time. The texture of this foundation is very smooth to blend on the skin very naturally without any extra effort, but I have to work with this foundation very quick as this is tend to dry up quickly on the skin.
I have tried this foundation both with fingers and with a foundation brush, It blends and spreads on the skin like butter. But, I have super oily skin and it is summer season, so my skin is just helpless with this foundation. This gave a dewy finish, which I don’t like totally and makes my skin super glowing and oily even if I covered it with pressed powder.
Here is the Picture I am wearing this foundation without covering by pressed powder:

But there are no breakouts and any allergic reaction, this is very light foundation but the matte claim is totally wrong. For oily skin it won’t work out as a matte foundation, because it making the face glow and oily within half an hour for me (may be because of summer, but I am sure this won’t help in the matte expectation).

My Likes with Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation:
  • Natural ingredients in a foundation.
  • Will be best foundation for Sensitive Dry skin.
  • Moisturizing very well.
  • No dry patches problems and not shows whitish on face.
  • Very good shade choice.
  • Goodness of Cucumber, Chamomile and Cotton.
  • Blends very easily on the skin, leaves the skin smooth.
  • Light weight formula, no heavy feel on the skin.
  • Covers minor blemishes and marks on the face.
  • Dewy finish with subtle glow and Natural look.
  • Medium Coverage.
  • Does brightens the skin.
  • No allergy or breakouts.
My Dislikes with Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation:
  • This is totally not for oily skin beauties.
  • The claim of matte for 12 hrs is totally gone wrong for me.
  • The scroll type lid is not comfortable excess amount may spill.
  • Made me very sweaty and oily L
  • Doesn't control oil L
  • Totally not for summer.
  • Availability.
  • The smell, some may not like it.
Final Verdict:
I highly recommend this Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation for dry skin, combination skin and sensitive dry skin people. A big no for super oily skin people in this sweaty, hot Summer. 
PS:I have kept this foundation in my kitty for trying again in the winters.

Hope My Review will be useful for you all...
Thanks for reading and please do share your opnions...
Stay Beauty, with Love Radha...

  1. good review dear....

    This foundation is good for dry skin..not for oily skin people...and true, even I noticed it is not matte finish one...This makes skin look fresh and dewy when applied and doesn't eliminate oil form T zone area... I think, ur skin is more oily...that might have made ur skin sweaty and oily...It gives a pretty natural coverage for everyday use when used along wd rimmel stay matte pressed powder and is only for combination skin I guess!
