Foundation has never been something I've been a fan of, whenever i decide to wear it, i always end up re-applying it too many times and appearing caked looking. But one day my sister gave me an unwanted half used tube of rimmel stay matte foundation, i wasn't too sure about using it but i thought...

“CHEAP AND EFFECTIVE”

ProCHEAP GOOD COVERAGE

ConsNEED MORE SHADES FOR DARKER PEOPLE

I bought this product about a year ago, and I've purchased this product since as I loved it so much. What does the promo say? Controls shine for up to 6 hours comfortable matte finish. Medium coverage. You'll have no chance to shine! Shades available Ivory Oatmeal beige Pale biscuit Noisette Rich...

ProReasonable Price and Easily Available

ConsNot suited to my skin type and colour

I have developed a terrible habit of running late which means I often do my make-up on the train/bus. On one occasion I had forgotten my foundation so in a rush trip to the Boots in the station I bought Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation. I normally use their 25 Hours Foundation but as I was going out...

“FOUNDATION THAT LASTS!”

Prolasts, flawless, affordable, looks lovely

Consnone

I first discovered this foundation when I first started being interested in make-up at the age of about 15 (I never saw the bother before then unlike most girls today!). My mum had been speaking to her friend who also had a daughter my age and they came to the conclusion, this foundation would be...

For many years this was my foundation of choice and this was simply because my Mother used it! Over the years the packaging has changed but as far as I am aware of the formulation hasn't changed any and it still comes in a 30ml size! The last tube I bought was a light cream colour and on the...

ProBlends well, looks good, well priced

ConsDoesn't last too long

I have quite oily skin by nature, and I always feel the need to wear foundation when out and about as I am naturally quite pale and always look washed out without foundation, though due to my oily skin, I have to be careful of the foundation I choose. I have a couple of foundations at home, with...

“Good foundation”

published 30/09/2014

ProGood coverage

ConsIsn't anything special

Good foundation I love Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder and the matching foundation is good though not as excellent as the powder. It is the sort of foundation that I will buy when it is on offer but I probably wouldn’t buy it if it was full price as there are other foundations which are just as...

“Great foundation”

published 01/05/2015

ProGood coverage, great price

ConsNone

As I have such pale skin I have to be really very careful about which type of foundation I use, as it's very easy to look too 'made up' and overdone. One of my favourite foundations at the moment is Rimmel London Stay Matt. This is also suitable for sensitive skin and those of us with uber pale...

ConsBit too average

Rimmel London As you may or may not know, Rimmel London is a make-up brand (and supposedly one of the better ones) who specialise in make-up which ranges from mascara to nail varnish. Usually you will find this brand in shops such as Superdrugs and Boots as well as other such shops and online...

“The colour to my face”

published 23/10/2015

ProCheap, shine control, long lasting

ConsLack of colour choice

Have you ever tried a Matt foundation before? The way they look on your skin can be awful, especially if your skin is dry. I have been using this foundation for a year now, it costs me £5.99 from my local superdrug, I'm pretty sure it's the same price in boots too! I tend to stock up and buy...

This is the first Rimmel foundation I have bought in ages, I've had bad experiences with them in the past but this one has actually impressed me over the others! I think they've upped the price of this foundation due to the new packaging and I THINK they may have added some new ingredients that...
