Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation

Whew that's a mouthful.  One of the perks of being a member of Influenster is occasionally you're picked to sample out products before they hit stores.  I've had some hits and misses, but for the most part I've actually found some items that have become staples in my beauty routine.

I was really excited to try out the foundation after finding out it was a matte mousse formula.  I've been curious how those products applied, and I have to say I was pretty underwhelmed with this particular product.  First, I requested a color about 3 shades too dark for my skin tone (obv my fault) but tried it anyway to get the full experience.

The texture was very thick at first and was more difficult to blend than it should be.

Maybe it's just my aging skin, but it definitely made my fine lines more noticeable, which is definitely not something I look for in a foundation.

On the left I obviously have foundation on (hi oompa loompa hand) and on the right I have nothing.
I don't know if because the color is so dark it made me lines more noticeable or what, but definitely not a good look.

As promised, it is lightweight.  After blending it didn't feel like I had anything on, but I did notice it came off on my clothes, so staying power isn't too great.

So overall, for me and my skin anyway, this product was a miss.  I did notice a LOT of positive reviews on the website though, and for the price, it seems like a good try!

*I received the foundation complimentary of Influenster, but all opinions expressed are my own.
