The foundation is highly pigmented and does a great job covering up the redness of my skin (I have rosacea). It is rich in dimethicone which provides a softening effect on my face. My skin is naturally oily but I also wear Clinique City Block Sheer SPF 25 and I know this product adds some shine to my face. Overall the foundation does control my oil but only in the sense that I don't have to use blotting powders as often. Also, when my oil has broken though, I feel there's something in the way dimethicone based foundations conceal the oil making it not quite as obvious. The Rimmel foundation reminds me of Tarte 12 Hour Amazonian clay foundation although not as drying and less costly. I use Hourglass Mineral primer prior to applying the Stay Matte foundation and then finish with Origins Silkscreen powder. With this combination I think I have found a winner. By the way, I apply this foundation by dotting it over my face, then tapping a damp makeup sponge over my face to blend, I tried applying it with a brush but that only amplified flakes on my skin. This stuff is cheap so which is great.

So, as a 15--soon to be 16--year old girl, I love playing around with make up and seeing what works best for me. I have oily skin and very big pores, and to top it all off, I have extremely pale skin. Hard to find a good foundation for said skin, correct? Well, if you have skin like mine, I can honestly say give it a try. I bought it a while back before I found my holy grail Bare Minerals powder foundation, but now that it's running low, I decided to look at my options that I all ready had and re-found this foundation. It's a bit hard to spread but with a good foundation brush, it can look flawless. My only complaints are that even the lightest shade--which is honestly a lot lighter than any other drugstore foundation I've purchased--is too dark for my pale skin. Even then, with the price and end result, I find myself just dealing with it. If I wasn't so interested in trying every drugstore and high end foundation out there, I would definitely buy it again. I would also like to note that I do not have acne prone skin, and every once in a blue moon will I see a breakout. This means that I can't tell you from experience if it covers blemishes, but it is buildable and worth a shot.

This foundation is truly amazing for people with oily skin, I repeat, OILY SKIN.
All the reviews are negative because people say it didn't work for their dry skin or oily skin with dry patches. It's not for you if you have dry patches.
Before I started using Epiduo I had oily skin and this was crazy amazing for my skin, kept me matte all day. Now that my face is dry I cannot use this without it clinging to my dry patches.
If you have oily skin, give it a try, and if you wanna use it anyway with combo skin, MOISTURIZE.

I bought this product on sale a couple of months ago as I wanted to try it. Rimmel has become one of my favorite drugstore-brands. I have VERY a really light skin tone, and the lightest shade "Ivory" was way too dark for me. So I have to use a white mixer to make it match my skin.

It provides really good coverage, keeps me matte for longer compared to many of my other foundations, but I only rate it 4/5 because of the color (if I didn't have a mixer it would be completely useless), and because it doesn't keep me matte for as long as I would expect since this is a product made for keeping your skin matte. This is one of the only foundations that doesn't suddenly changes color on my skin. Other foundations tends to get really orange after they dry. Bottom line; good foundation, good price, really good coverage for my acne. I would recommend this :-)

Although the price of this product is excellent (around £5) it was a waste of money. It's so thick and cakey I couldn't even bear to wear this all over my face all day! It sunk into pores making them look terrible and full of this stuff. I can't comment on how matte it stayed because I couldn't bring myself to leave it on my face!

Bought this three times already. If you combine it with the "Stay Matte" primer and a good loose powder, even the most oily skin isn't a problem. I have problematic oily skin and this one really works for me. Very good build-able coverage too!

My very scarred skin looks flawless with this foundation (and the stay matte powder to finish) I have been searching for a fix and I'm so glad I finally found it! Especially for such a low price!!!

This product did not help me stay matte even with powder. Also the color range is not good. The color was pretty pinky.

I'm sorry but this product sucks. It smells funny, it's sooooo thick, settles in fine lines, and has no colors pale enough for me. I could not blend this out at all and I looked cakey. It also clings to any dry patches you may have. This product may work for super oily people but definitely not anyone with even the slightest bit of dry skin.

I have oily, acne-prone, sensitive skin and have tried everything from Laura Mercier, Shiseido, Bare Escentuals, to NYX and NYC. I was in the market for a new winter foundation and tried this product after I saw a decent review on Paula's Choice. I was not about to spend a lot of money on yet another foundation that didn't perform well. I've got a small case of atopic dermatitis on the sides of my nose thanks to MUFE Mat Velvet (big surprise!!). Anyway, this foundation does not irritate my skin, dermatitis, or cause any nasty cysts, even when I wear it the whole day. It has a very matte finish, but it isn't drying for my skin type. If you have dry/combination skin, this foundation isn't for you!!! The only downsides to this product are 1. it comes in a very limited number of shades (the second lightest color is a perfect match for me) and 2. you have to use quite a bit to achieve a medium-full coverage (which is fine by me because it's so darn cheap). I know others have talked about how you have to blend it quickly because it dries so fast, but I don't have that problem, and I don't need to use a primer with it.

Definitely worth a try if you have oily skin and have not found your personal Holy Grail. At less than $6 for 1 oz., what have you got to lose!!
