Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation | Review



Hey Beauties...
I have now been using this foundation for a fair few months now, you may have seen this pop up in my monthly favourites a few times so I thought it was about time I shared my thoughts on it with you (I was meant to get this up months ago) I have used a Mousse foundation before, which was Maybellines Dream Matte Mousse foundation, back when I was about 16 I believe, back then I hated foundation anyway, and was completely wrong for my skin type. I did like the formula thought and decided as my skin has changed and I'm older and wiser now, I would try Rimmels Version of the mousse. I love Rimmel as a brand and they are definitely my favourite for foundations and mascaras, except their True Match foundation, I didn't get on well with that at all.

Rimmel Claim:
"Feather-light, liquid mousse blends flawlessly for natural-looking, all day shine control. Silky smooth formula leaves a perfectly matte, baby-soft finish. Lightweight texture won't feel heavy or greasy."

Rimmel Say Matte Mousse Foundation Soft Beige | £5.99
The First thing I like about this product is the fact that it comes in a plastic tube form, rather then a pot, which allows you to easily dispense the product by squeezing the tube, either onto a brush or onto the back of your hand, which is what I like to do. The product comes out really slowly so you can dispense just the right amount of product with out any excess waste. I like to use about a little bigger then a pea sized amount to cover the whole of my face. The amount shown it the picture is more then enough to completely cover my face. 

The formula itself is really light weight and mousse like. However once you start to apply to product is does go into a fluffy liquid form, which dries quickly leaving your face feeling really soft and silky smooth, and is very light weight on the face. The product is buildable, so be careful not to over apply as it can start to feel heavy. 



I opted for the shade 200 Soft Beige and as you can see is a perfect match for my skin. I would say this Mousse Foundation is pretty full coverage, and blends effortlessly for me, I don't even feel the need to apply a concealer to hide my dark circles on my under eye area when I use this product. I have Normal/Combination Skin and find that this Foundation works lovely on my skin, giving a matte finish, I would say the product lasts on the skin for a good 10-12 hours before I saw any oiliness appear in my forehead, where I'm prone to getting oily, which is pretty good considering I didn't set with any powders. 

If you get dry patches, like I sometimes do, I would highly recommend applying a very good moisturiser before use, However if you suffer with dry skin I would not recommend this product as Mousse foundations are not recommend for dry skin at all. I like to apply this foundation using my Real Techniques Buffing brush and feel this brush applies the product perfectly giving a flawless finish. 

Overall I absolutely love this foundation and Rimmel, for me, have really done well yet again, as I said before I love Rimmel as a brand but unfortunately I didn't get on with their true match foundation so this has definitely restored my faith in them! I have also been trying out their Stay Matte BB Cream so expect my review really soon. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who has Normal/Combination skin, like me, as it is perfect for that skin type, as for extra oily skin I'm 100% sure, but you may need to apply a primer before hand and possibly set it with a powder just to be sure. 

Have you tried the Say Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation? What are your thoughts on it? Will you be purchasing it? I'd love to know.
