Review for: RimmelLondon Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation

RimmelLondon Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation 

"A feather light, oil free formula with an airy mousse texture that won’t feel heavy or greasy. Delivers all day shine control and blends flawlessly for a natural looking matte finish. Minimizes the appearance of pores. The weight is over – finally, shine has met its matte."

I'm pretty excited to review this product! I've made it known before that because of my psoriasis, I tend to get picky about what lotions, make-up, etc., goes on my skin. Although some are a hit-and-miss, whenever I do find something that I love, I make sure to give it love when I can. Well, today is a day for giving some love :) 

I have oily/combination skin so I can say that I'm regularly trying to find a good product for me. Up until now, foundation is not something that I wore regularly on account of how heavy some of them are, or how they make me feel like I'm wearing it caked on. Or even worse they caused mild breakouts on my face. 

Well, let me start by saying that when I first opened my Influenster* box I was a bit dissatisfied. The color of the bottle looked like it might've been too dark for my skin color, but I figured "It's here so might as well give it a go!" Like always I tested a small spot on my skin first to make sure it was not or wouldn't set off any bad reaction on my skin and it didn't.  Once that was out of the way I was a bit giddy thinking about how it might look on me.

While applying it,  I couldn't help but notice that the Stay Matte Foundation felt so light and airy between my fingers, like you really were handling some mousse. Right away I noticed its a bit thick which is a good thing actually, since I didn't require a lot when I put in on.

So.... so far, it's lightweight.  It doesn't take a lot of product to get the job done. One thing I did like was that it actually did blend with my skin color so if you get this and it looks a little too dark, don't be discouraged! 

I wore it from 10am to 9pm and I'm happy to say it was fantastic to wear. Not once did it make me feel like I was wearing make-up, but it did a marvelous job of making my skin look pretty! Just like it was easy to apply, it was also easy to remove. I took some pictures of me wearing the foundation and my skin looks flawless, I love it! I will recommending it to all my friends who wear make-up. 

So, to sum up: Easy to blend, Lightweight, Oil-Free, Easy to remove, Fragrance-Free(At least I didn't detect any strong smell) and it comes in eight different shades so there's something for everyone!
