I saw pictures of another MUAer who had worn this foundation and it looked amazing on her, so I decided to try it, having large pores I need to cover. I wasn't that impressed. It had light to medium coverage, a thicker consistency though it felt like it was mostly comprised of water. It reminded me of an old, long-discontinued Maybelline foundation that claimed to be 50% water. It wasn't matte at all, I had to powder it down with the Stay Matte powder. The staying power was pitiful, it melted off my face within two hours. I only wore this once, so I can't say whether it would break me out or not, but I won't be trying this again. It's not the worst foundation I've ever used, but it's not that great, either. But for $4, I really don't know what I was expecting.
I bought this in hopes of finding a cheaper alternative to revlons colorstay foundation. i loved the spatula as part if its packaging. it dried on quick and it felt smooth and light. but my skin looked kinda patchy. I toughed it out and kept it on. a few hours later I looked in the mirror. what the hell! parts of my face were orange! the only place it looked perfect was a part of my neck. never ever buying this again. I might be staying away from Rimmels foundations and sticking to their eye makeup instead. so disappointed!
I didn't like this product, it was super thick and dried really fast. The packaging is high quality but I wish it had a pump instead of a spatula. It is cheap price wise but is also cheap itself. I recommend using this to make a tinted moisturizer!
I got drawn to this because of the of the word "MATTE" on the bottle. I hate this. It dries so fast that you cant even blend it in and it makes me breakout like hell. Its pretty cheap. $4.37 but if your on a budget or if you're starting out into the makeup world, dont even buy this. Spend your $4 dollas on something else.
This product is ehhhhh. Not good or bad. But i dont see myself reaching for it after using it for only one time. P.s- doesnt do the claim on the label.
-Purchased at Walmart
- about 4$
-Cap has a paddle attached
- I have extremely oily skin, especially now ( mid july! )
-I don't use primer
-Set foundation with Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in 001 transparent
-I have been using this foundation for about a month on almost every day
-NOT liquid foundation
-More of a light mousse texture
-It claims to have rice protein (which is usually in a lot of oil control products)
-Limited skin tone range, It was unbelivably hard to find a match! I got a foundation a shade lighter to be safe
-It dries ridiculously fast, faster then R ColorStay. When blending
however it is sticky and wet like after applying. takes a while to set
-blends horribly! IF you use your hands and attempt to rub it in it will dry in random spots and leave you looking patchy!
-When it dries it gives your face a weird bumpy texture. (hence exaggerates pores!)
- Even though I bought a shade or two lighter it does oxidize! way darker than my skin.
-Does control oil for about 3 hours
-When applied with wet sponge it does look better but the coverage is light.
-Paddle makes the application a lot cleaner
-A good amount of pigmentation does last all day
I would not recommend this product to anyone, even if they are on a budget. There are much better foundations for a little more money. You are getting what you pay for.
The negatives outweigh the positives.
I actually really liked this product because of how thick it is and it seems to help hide my blemishes better. The only thing is that it's SO thick that it sets in quick so you've got to act fast! I use two foundations, so I get a more accurate color for my skin tone, and that seems to help it smooth out better. I would and do buy again!
when I first bought this I thought that it was a good product... until I bought the covergirl 3 in 1 foundation. Then I realized that this kinda sucks on me! it only kept me matte for like 3 hours :( But I still like the packaging of this product. I think this would work best on people with normal skin, not extremely oily like mine.
I love it! It was my foundation until I used up the entire bottle (took around three months I believe) with everyday use. I have very bad acne and scarring and it did not break me out and did help cover my scars to where I felt comfortable. After I apply with a stippling, duo fiber foundation brush, I go in and set it with MAC Pressed Studio CareBlend powder and it looks beautiful! Lasts about six hours before I start to see shine, then I touch up with MAC Blot and I'm good as new! Don't understand why there's such poor reviews for this product.
Highly disappointed with this foundation, Rimmel did not present a good product.
-About this foundation:
The product is very thick, difficult to evenly apply onto the skin. My personal expirience with this left my face very streaky.
The color of the foundation is much darker than advertised, I am very light skinned they did not have a lighter foundation to match. My skin is very blotchy and uneven, I have acne throughout my T-zone, this foundation failed to cover the red in my skin.
Comes in a glass bottle with a wand applicator instead of a pump. In my opinion the pump would distribute the foundation to not be so thick.
After wearing to work for about 2 hours with powder to set the foundation, I went into the restroom to freshen up, and my foundation was in big orange blotches with my acne and red showing through.
I would not use after 1 application of this stuff, tossed it soon after purchasing. Would not recommend to others.
