Stay Matte Foundation

Not Great.

I ran out of my Neutrogena skin clearing makeup, and decided to try this one because I'd seen some good reviews and I overall enjoy the matte look. I liked the coverage it gave, but the shading was off for me, and it wasn't too noticeable, but it definitely showed. Also, it lost it's matte look mid-day and caked up. This could be because of my hardcore combination skin, but it was not great. I won't be re-purchasing.

Great drug store quality for combination or oily skin!

I bought this for my first time a few days ago. I have combination skin... I'm dry in the Winter and oily in the Summer. While I had been using MAC Studio Sculpt, it was leaving my face SUPER oily by the end of the day. So I picked up the Rimmel foundation because the price was right (about $5) and it said that there was up to 12 hours shine control. I must say that I'm really impressed with this foundation! It noticeably decreased shine for almost the whole day... even though I was outside in 90 degree heat :) I will most certainly keep using it this Summer. The coverage is about medium, but I do believe that it's buildable. The ONLY down side is that the color selection is slim. I'd call myself "caramel complected", and the darkest color was about the same shade as I am.... so if you're dark complected, there isn't a selection for you :( Overall though, I'd give this an 8 out of 10 :)
