Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation Review

Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation Review

My skin is pretty clear, I sometimes get the odd break out with hormones but otherwise it is clear with only slightly blemishing on my chin but I do like a full coverage base. I think I like how flawless it can make your skin look. When I saw the Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation that offered to be full coverage whilst controlling shine I purchased it straight away.

It comes in 6 shades which isn't alot and they are more catered for pale to medium skin tones nothing for darker skin tones. The shades range from Porcelain to Natural Beige. When I first squeezed the tube I was surprised at how thick the foundation is, it is very mousse like which shocked me as the packaging says it is a lightweight foundation. I make sure I have moisturised well and primed before using such a thick foundation. I have applied this with both brush and beauty blender and find both work well. If you want full coverage that is lightweight I would suggest applying it with a damp beauty blender as it will stop the foundation looking cakey or dry. 

When I applied it with a brush it did feel heavier on the skin but still left a flawless full coverage. I do prefer using a damp beauty blender as it makes the foundation lighter but still with good coverage. I do sometimes add a small amount on any break outs if I have them just to make sure they are fully covered. 

You do have to blend it well otherwise it can look a little patchy. I set with powder usually the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder as it is very finely milled. I have worn this many times all day long and each time it has kept the shine away. I am extremely oily on my nose and chin but this did really keep me matte. When I wear fuller coverage foundations I make sure to remove my makeup with a cleanser. 

Overall for £5.99 it is the highest coverage drugstore foundation there is. You can buy the Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation from Boots online or in store.


  1. I have the BB cream version of this and I love it!!xx

  2. I haven't tried the Rimmel Matte foundation before, although I have dry skin so it probably isn't best for me. I'm pleased it works well for you though :D

    1. I dont think it would be good for dry skin, it would cling to any dry patches! x
