Help dial back the shine with Rimmel London's Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation

Stay Matte

Stay Matte

It's noon and there's an oil slick across my face.

And in my purse I have what I consider to be my essentials:

  • iPhone 
  • Brush
  • Hand Moisturiser 
  • Keys
  • Tram Card
  • Wallet
  • Loads of lip products

But, I always manage to rule out blotting paper. One of these days my happy, shiny face will serve as a glaring warning to the rest of you out there.

Shining my "light"

Shining my "light"

Instead of fighting oil with paper, Rimmel's Stay Matte pulls double duty with its light/medium coverage and shine fighting properties. If you're already planning on putting something on your face, why not make it work for you?

Stay Matte is a light mousse with no discernible scent, applies easily (a little goes a long way) and stays for the day. With my sun kissed glow all but gone Sand proved to be a tad too dark for me with its orange undertones, but Classic Beige is a bang on match for my skin ATM.

For the dewy kinda gals, Stay Matte might not be for you.
