Let me start out with saying this: I have always had good skin when i was young, but sadly your skin changes when you get older. I'm 23 now and I never wore foundation or anything past a moisturizer on a day to day to basis, until about 5 months ago. Needless to say, I have tried countless foundations, primers, and combos of both since then. I have light, fair skin, and never break out. Recently, I have gone from completely dry skin to oily t-zone and dry cheeks.
I have always loved Rimmel, because it's cheap but performs very well. I saw this in walmart for a few dollars and figured I would try it out. I loved everything from the application, to the smell, to the way it wore throughout the day.
I primed with Maybelinne Baby Skin on my cheeks and nose (yes, I love Baby Skin and it works for me) used the Stay Matte in Light Ivory foundation on my forehead and nose, and the Rimmel BB Cream in Light everywhere else. I definitely found my flawless skin arsenal using these products. I don't find myself getting too shiny through the day, and I also don't see that it cakes a whole lot. Just try to avoid any dry areas (which is why I use my fingers to blend into the right spots) as it can look flaky and accentuate dryness.

Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse foundation.
I have fair, oily skin that is sometimes prone to breakouts. I am completely oily with no dry patches at all. I have large pores all over as well. I was so excited when I heard about this product, since I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Stay Matte Powder. Also, it seemed like there were rave reviews all over the net. At the first chance I got I picked up a tube in the lightest colour, Fair Ivory, since I am so fair. The very next morning I tried out this foundation.
The product is a very thick moussey texture. It is surprisingly easy to blend considering how thick it is. I used a damp beauty blender to blend it in, however I would probably recommend a buffing brush instead. Even though the beauty blender worked well, the thick texture would probably work better with a buffing brush.
FINISH & COLOUR:
The finish is really matte and does not need a powder, at first at least. I didn't notice however, at first, how matte a finish it has. So on that first morning I set it with my Stay Matte powder and a matte setting spray, as per normal for me. I obviously didn't need to blot or touch up as much because of this. But the result was very, very cakey. The foundation also sat in my pores and made them really obvious.
The colour was also off for me. It made me look washed out and pasty. It was a shade too light and possible the wrong tone. It does not oxidize at all nor have any orange in it, for all you girls who are actually fair ivory.
I tried it again another time, since I really wanted to love it. I tried to use it differently than the first time, so no powder or setting spray but it still looked cakey. Also, I noticed that it makes my skin feel dry. While wearing it, I don't mind since I don't want to be an oily mess and it is a nice change for once but even when I take it off the feeling remains. A heavy duty moisturiser is a must when using this to restore some moisture to your skin afterwards.
To fix all of the problems I noticed with this foundation, since I don't want to waste it I mixed it with another foundation. I had gotten a Maybelline Fit Me foundation as part of a package deal online. I got the package for other items so I didn't mind that the foundation was too dark for me. I also find that the Fit Me foundations are too dewy for me - so two misses on that one. Until I mixed these two together. With one being too dark and the other too light, one slightly too matte and the other too dewy etc these are a perfect match. Now when I use this combination my skin looks flawless and natural. I would recommend to anyone else who has the same issues to do the same.
Alone this foundation is too drying, cakey and pasty for me. Mixed with the FIT ME foundation however I think I found my HG in the combination. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone with dry or normal skin as it is too drying on the skin and I probably wouldn't even recommend it anyone to wear alone. I will however repurchase it so that I can keep up with this combination.

I have acne, and this foundation conceals the acne whilst not being too "cakey" or "orange" like so many others- good for all skin tones, & lasts all day (around 6 hours!) Doesn't smell bad either. This is always my go- to foundation, I always purchase this one; the price is also very cheap (£6.99) for such good quality, & it's better than many high end designer foundations out there! Amazing, a must buy.

-doesn't oxidize on me
- hides imperfections yet leaves a natural finish .
- not that long staying

I love this foundation! It has great coverage and doesnt feel greasy or anything as a matter of fact it feels very light. It is my new favorite foundation, I use to love the fit me maybelline foundation stick but i run out of it so fast that it is just not worth the price unlike this foundation where i only need a little to cover my whole face! And the color suits my skin perfectly imjust love it ! I will definitly repurchase when i run out !

I bought this in Soft Beige after my mum recommended it. I paid about $12 AUD for it, which is much cheaper than my usual foundation. The colour is a really good match for my skin, not too pink or yellow. I like how the coverage is not too heavy but it is also buildable. I was using my fingers to apply it to my face but I just started using a brush and it looks great. I have combination/oily skin, just my t-zone really and at first this really mattified my face, but I find that after a few hours my nose gets a little oily. But I use the Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder to set it and for any quick touch ups when that happens and they work really well together. At first this product broke me out worse than I had broken out in a couple of years but I continued to use it and my skin is fine now. I think I'll repurchase it again.

I really wanted to love this..and I did for a very short lived period. For the $4.99 I picked it up at Walgreens for, the price tag was pretty irresistible and I heard rave reviews about it on YouTube. It does give a nice medium-full coverage and has a true matte finish, this is not meant for dry skin!! It clings to dry patches, and is NOT long lasting at all, by my lunch break at work it was falling off my face, even with a MAC primer and finishing powder. Now about a week into use my face has broken out so badly. If you've got oily skin this may be a great foundation for you, but this was a big fail for me :(

I am ghostly pale and I was surprised when this line had my color (light ivory) so i bought it and it is pretty nice. I don't have to powder my face as much during the day. I would say from having to powder between every period to maybe until maybe after gym (i actually participate for those wondering why) . I do have breakout but I can't say it is from this...my face has always been crappy.

So thick! I definitely broke out, clogged my pores like crazy. Good coverage and color match, though.

this product worked wonderful on my skin without looking cakey. I used this product with a beauty sponge... although it is suppose to be a matte... the oil in my gace did peak through so I had to use a aetting powder. This product was pretty good for the price, I got it for about 4 dollats at my local walmart. The color I got was soft beige and was a perfect match for my skin!
