Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation

Rimmel has a new Stay Matte foundation out, and you know this oily skinned girl was going to try it.

Years ago I tried their Cool Matte foundation and it was not good. Yet another of theirs, Double Act, was great. I had hopes this would be good and it is.

It is a more natural finish, I prefer medium finish but I can work with this. Thankfully its not sheer at least. I never understand why so many acne helping foundations are sheer. If you have big pores and acne, hello- you need coverage. This has nice coverage but some concealer may be needed at times. The foundation blends nicely and needs a ninute or two to set. It lasts really well and does help keep some of the oilies at bay most of the day.

It contains salicylic acid, zinc oxide( so good for battling acne), cucumber extract and cotton powder all to help the skin stay clear. Rimmel calls the mix of salicyclic acid and botanicals SkinPure complex fpr clarifying the skin as well as coverage.
For a drugstore foundstion this performs very well. It comes in many shades and sells for around 6.99 .

I am getting tired of the Recessionista phrase( even if may be appropriate), but this line has always been good quality at some of the lowest prices, so it is very much Recessionista approved.

Rimmel online has also redone their Virtual Makeover Tool which looks like a lot of fun. A chance for you to try on some of their products right there.
