Rimmel Stay Matte Primer || Review

Rimmel Stay Matte Primer Review Rimmel Stay Matte Primer Review and Swatch

This is a product that is rarely spoken about in the blogosphere and I have no idea why. I didn't get a lot of hype when it was released, in fact I can't remember seeing a single review about it. I have a lot of love for this product and its drugstore price makes it even more appealing.
Firstly, I like both the primers that Rimmel offer so if you're a fan of the Fix and Perfect primer than chances are you'll love this. I also have slightly oily/combination skin which is why the matte effect suits my skin type. Although I wouldn't say this is too matte so try it out even if you don't have particularly oily skin, especially because of the cheap price.
I take a small blob, a little bigger than the one in the picture and apply it with my fingers to my face, concentrating specifically on my t-zone. It blends really easily, it isn't drying or overly hydrating either but I would say it reacts nicely with my moisturiser. I mentioned this in my post about my face for work and I really think it makes me makeup stay in place for much longer.
It doesn't clog my pores of make my foundation separate like some primers do. I prefer this formula than the silicone style such as Maybelline Baby Skin and Benefit Porefessional it just feels much smoother and lighter on the skin - much better for summer! All of my foundations adhere to this so well and leaves my base flawless.

What's your favourite primer?

    1. Definitely this is a nice and cheap one to try if you're just getting in to them :) xx

  2. I never got on with the baby skin but i got Dr Brandt in my Birchbox loved it... but unwilling to spend that much on a primer, when my sample of Porefessional runs out I might give this a while and test it out as again Benefit makeup isn't exactly cheap either

    1. I agree, I love Porefessional but ive never bought a full size because there are so many samples flying about xx

  3. I must try it:)!
    please visit me in free time:)

  4. I'll have to try this, I hate when primers clog my skins, seems like a ironic thing for a primer to do!
