Yesterday I posted my Influenster Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation unboxing. I thought today would be a good day to bring you the first impression and application video along with a review on the product.
As I mentioned, I received this Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation from Influenster to review. Rimmel already has a Stay Matte setting powder on the market, however, this is a mousse foundation.
For the application of the product I chose to use a Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. I love this brush for applying liquid type foundations as I can get better coverage with it depending on where I hold the handle. If you do not have this brush in your life you need to!
Due to the thicker consistency of this foundation I held the brush closer to the bristles so that I could buff it in really well. I worked in circular motions up and outward on my face. *WARNING* this foundation starts to dry pretty fast so make sure to either A. work quickly or B. after applying make sure to use your hands to smooth out any brush strokes you may get.
This the finished look after applying the foundation. I used no primer or setting powder/spray. The foundation stayed on very well throughout the day and stayed matte the entire time. However, for complete honesty I should mention that I really wasn’t doing much the day that I tested this. That being said, I think this foundation would still hold up well for more strenuous work than what I was doing with some primer and setting spray. Also, a new important factor is I did not have a bad reaction nor a breakout with this foundation.
