I love a good makeup challenge and this weekend I was able to put a new product to the test by taking Rimmel London‘s Stay Matte Challenge. For the challenge you have to use their Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation and decide at the end if you’re going to make the Stay Matte Switch. By sharing your experience via Instagram, YouTube or a blog if you have one – you can then enter their huge sweepstakes.
Foundations are one of my absolute favorite makeup products, because the right one can deliver flawless looking skin. On top of flawless coverage this foundation is also offering a shine-free finish and that gets extra points in my book. I have combination skin and when the weather gets warmer my skin quickly goes the oily route. No matter what foundation I use, I’m ending the day with super shiny skin and oil that needs to be blotted away multiple times throughout the day.
This weekend I wore my Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation and was surprised by the results. Rimmel London says the benefits of the Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation are:
- Shine control
- The lightweight feel
- Has a liquid mousse texture
These three benefits are what gives your skin the perfect, matte finish and I have to say — it’s true! I applied the foundation with a flat foundation brush and blended it in using a Beauty Blender sponge. The coverage (as you’ll see in my photos) was flawless and completely matte. Most importantly that matte finish was maintained all day long, without my having to blot my face at all. I love the mousse texture, because it’s easy to work with and blend onto my skin. When I think of a lightweight formula it makes me question the type of coverage the foundation can deliver, but Rimmel proved my worries wrong with their Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation. I got the coverage I wanted without the heavy feel.
This foundation is available in six different shades. The best fit for my skin tone was #300 Sand, but I wish there were more color options to choose from including darker shades.
I am definitely making the #StayMatteSwitch!
