Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation in Soft Beige

       Despite amassing around ten different foundations of all textures, colours and brands, this £4.99 Rimmel bargain is fast becoming a one of my firm favourites. I was a little bit sceptical before purchasing, as my skin and I never really got on very well with the now infamous Maybelline mousse foundation.
        I tend to have that annoying combination skin that can't decide whether or not it wants to stay greasy and shiny, or dry and flaky. However, much like the majority of beauty products, I'm slightly obsessed with buying new foundations, so picked this one up at Asda a few weeks ago. (As you can see it has been rattling around in my much too grubby makeup bag for a while, hence the dirty looking packaging!) 
        I love the creamy consistency of this foundation,  and while it does exactly what it says on the tin by keeping the skin matte, it's not too drying which can make products look tacky. When used with my primer it stays put all day, and other products like blusher and highlighter glide on fine. The shade 'Soft Beige' is quite a good match for my skin tone, however I'd say the limited number of shades is the one downside to this product..yet who can complain for a fiver?

  1. The texture of this looks amazing. I keep seeing adverts for this on TV as well. I don't use liquid/cream foundation but if I did, I'd definitely be trying this out.
