Matte seems to be the ongoing trend  for this fall seasons. So in par with that, I’ll be reviewing a newly released product from Rimmel London called the Stay Matte Liquid Mouse Foundation.

The Product:

Here’s how the product looks like. One squish will give you a fluffy amount of product that definitely looks thicker than it feels. The first one shows the skin of my hand without the swipe of the foundation. The latter has a coverage that looks like a bit darker than my skin.

The Product Claim:

A feather light, oil free formula with an airy mousse texture that won’t feel heavy or greasy. Delivers all day shine control and blends flawlessly for a natural looking matte finish. Minimizes the appearance of pores. The weight is over – finally, shine has met its matte.

The Road Test (literally Smile ):


November 1, 2013, 2:30pm. This was taken at San Francisco, California starting the 45-mile drive. Weather there was a bit chilly and windy, thus the dry parts of my skin was a little bit enhanced. The coverage is still perfect for me, though. I have combination skin so I noticed that some parts of my skin was a little flaky and some parts looked totally perfect.


At 4:29pm, these photos was taken at the Bixby Bridge. Weather condition at that time was a bit chilly but not that windy at all. The product remain intact on my skin and no oily-ness visible yet.


This was taken at around 5:30pm on the same date. Obviously some of the product have faded off my skin, but still has enough coverage to hide my dark spots and acne.

On a totally different setting, this was taken November 11, 2013 at around 4:19pm in Lipa City Philippines, where humidity is high and temperature is a bit high as well.  As you can see, I’ve had a bit of acne going on in my chin and some of my dark spots were still visible since I applied a little bit of the foundation on my face, just enough to balance out my skin tone. Looking from afar, it’s still good for me.

The Conclusion:

My overall rating for this product is 5 out of 5. I could say that because I find the product blendable and customizable depending on your taste. You could either apply a thin layer just enough to balance your skin color or apply a thicker layer to cover some dark spots and acne, and fill up your deep pores as well. I was given the shade TRUE BEIGE and I noticed that upon first application it looked a bit darker for my skin, But after a few hours it blended well with my skin color so that it looked a lot more like the skin on my neck area – which is of course, a totally good thing. The weight of the product on the skin was so light that even after 8 hours on my skin, it still felt like I have little foundation on. I totally recommend this for someone like me, who has combination skin, but most of the time, oily. If you have very dry skin though, I suggest blending this out with a moisturizer for better application, since obviously, its matte, and if you apply it alone, it will only enhance your dry skin,

Overall though, it’s a recommended product from Rimmel London. Thumbs up, guys! Smile
