Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation
Retails for $8/$9 (CAD)
Okay so first off, I really didn’t like this foundation. It’s very heavy, very hard to blend, I found it just sat on the face, I felt like a total cake.
It does have good points though, the colour range pretty good considering it’s a drug store foundation, the shade I got was ”Light Porcelain”, It’s the lightest shade in the line I believe (could be wrong) and it was still to dark for me.. It did oxidize quite a bit as well.
I like the packaging I think it’s super cute, I love the bright white and purple.
I really wanted to love this foundation, for the last 5 years my go to everyday foundation was Rimmel’s ”clean finish” foundation, but for some reason I can’t find it anymore I have no idea why, but I doesn’t seem to be available anywhere and I had hoped this would be similar but I really disliked it.
However, I’ve been using it as a base for my eye shadow, I found it was thick enough like a really good eye primer, it didn’t seem to move on my eyelids where my face it didn’t want to dry down, it was way to thick and wouldn’t blend and just moved around way to much for my liking, but the eye lids it stayed in place and was the perfect base for my eye shadow.
I didn’t notice any scent on it.
Even over top my regular primer it seemed to basically make my pores more prominent.
If you have any skin issues, or uneven skin texture it seems to highlight it, make it more noticeable and more prominent which isn’t what most want with a foundation.
For me, I want a foundation that is heavy but doesn’t feel heavy. I want the look of having new skin without the feeling of it on my face. I want the coverage but I need my skin to feel like it can breathe.
I really love their stay matte pressed powder, it’s one of my favourite pressed powders.
The size and price point are both great.
I’d rate it about a 3.4 – I love the packaging, the texture seems nice, the colour wasn’t awful but could be better, it was way to heavy, kind of oily/greasy, it made my pores and uneven skin texture way to much for my liking & just wasn’t what I was looking for, but it’s great as an eye shadow primer.
I really wanted to like this and I’ve tried it with different primers, different setting powders, but it just doesn’t work for me.
However, Just because it doesn’t work for me doesn’t mean it won’t work for you!.
