What we say:
I have always been wary of mousse foundations as the few that I have tried have always felt rather heavy on my skin and haven’t blended as well as my usual liquid foundations. The new Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation claims to be a “liquid mousse” (a new formula on the market), so I decided to give it a try hoping it would be more liquid than mousse. The formula is a lot thicker than a liquid foundation and I found it quite difficult to squeeze the foundation out due to it’s consistency.
I always apply my foundation with a buffing brush, but I tried this with the mousse foundation and it doesn’t quite work as well so I resorted to using my fingers to blend in the foundation. This worked much better as the foundation warmed up ever so slightly, making it a lot easier to blend in.
As the foundation is quite thick, I only applied it to my T-zone and blended it out ever so slightly onto my cheeks. With a touch of concealer and highlighter I was left with a fresh complexion and while the mousse is quite thick, my skin was still able to breathe (very important)!
While I don’t think this foundation will take the place of my go-to foundation, on days when I need a bit more coverage or I need guaranteed shine control for the whole day, I will definitely use this foundation!
Overall, I was impressed with this foundation as it is very reasonably priced and it certainly lives up to its claims.
