Product description of Rimmel London Stay Matte Primer - $8.50
The light weight primer minimizes the appearance of pores and controls shine whole day.
Both products come in squeezable tube with screw cap. The foundation as described is liquid mousse have soft airy mousse formula which applies beautifully. This sort of texture is light weight and need very little amount for application. It is oil free and so is suitable for oily and combination skin but dry skin can also use it with good moisturizer.
While it is very light weight and need little amount, the coverage it provide is really good. It is medium to full coverage formula and with matte finish it is really suitable in summers. The application is easy and with any fluffy brush it can be blended easily. The ideal brushes for such product are Sigma F80 flat kabuki or RT buffing brush. Just apply little amount on face with fingers and buff it with brush. You can also use sponge and fingers but with fingers more quantity will be needed and it will also feel heavy on skin. It blends flawlessly and gives you very natural matte finish. It covers almost all imperfections and you might not need any concealer with it. It is similar to Golden Rose mousse foundation which was amazing and i loved it every bit but for the price and ease of use i prefer this one.
The primer have white creamy formula which spread and blends easily without leaving any greasy feel behind. If you do not like to use silicon based products then this is perfect for you. It doesn't feel slippery like silicon primers. It provides smooth surface to apply foundation and blur pores and lines for some extent. I think it is better then Maybelline baby skin pore eraser primer as it keeps the skin matte longer then Maybelline. It is white in color but after blending doesn't leave any white cast and absorbs like any cream or lotion. I think it is one of the best drugstore primer.
Overall both products are perfect in summers for ones who want matte finish through out the day and needs medium to full coverage. For very oily skin you might need little touch up with pressed powder after 4 to 5 hours on oily zones.
