I left my basic makeup pouch at my place in Pampanga and I’m already back in Manila. What to do? So, I saw the Rimmel Stay Matte Clarifying Matte Foundation in Soft Beige back at home (from All Glammed Up’s stash) and thought, “maybe it’s about time I give this baby a run.”
“Shine control formula for up to 12 hours matte coverage. With SkinPure Complex for a visibly purified complexion and gentle botanical extracts to help soothe sensitive skin. Oil-free. Non-comedogenic. Non-acnegenic. Fragrance free. Paraben free.”
The Good Bits:
The packaging is really a blessing. It is very easy to slide in my makeup pouch and it doesn’t come in a fragile bottle, so I can just throw it in my stash. The product is easy to squeeze off of its container and it is quite sturdy. It is good for sensitive skin, oil-free, won’t give you breakouts (well, so far, it didn’t give me any and so is someone I know who has used it) so all’s good. It will give you light to medium coverage and, again, I used a halp pump for more coverage on my under eye area. If you have oily skin, this will be a superb makeup foundation for you; so you better give this baby a try soon.
The Bad Bits:
It gives off a light usual makeup-ish scent, which kind of turns some people off; but it doesn’t bother me. It’s superb for those who have oily skin (I have combination) but for those who have dry skin, better steer away from this product. This doesn’t have any SPF content, which is how I wish all foundations would have. It can only be purchased through online makeup stores (AllGlammedupUp.Weebly.com or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org since I co-own the makeup store and we haven’t updated the page yet)

I am impressed with the performance of this foundation and I am definitely alternating this one with my favorite L’Oreal foundation. My rating for this product will be 9/10. It’s perfect for those with oily or combination skin type but won’t work on those with dry skin. The fact that it only caters to a specific niche kind of limits its outreach and also that it is not available locally is part of its con. But it lasts long, it’s affordable and it didn’t give me any breakouts. High five!
