First of all, Happy Veteran’s Day! Thank you to each and every Veteran that has ever served our country. Past, present and future! Thank you also to the families that support those veterans on a daily basis on not just on Veteran’s day!
Today’s post is about a different kind of face, not the about face order of a military march… But I thought the title was fitting for Veteran’s Day.
My latest VoxBox from Influenster included a tube of Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation. I have been using it for the last couple of weeks and I am pleased to say I give it a thumbs up! Many of the foundations that I have used up to this point left my skin looking shiny. It required some powder or a bit of bronzer applied over the top to get that matte finish minus the shine.
So to demonstrate the foundation here’s a before and after photo of my morning make up routine.
To get a natural matte finish on my skin I start by applying just a dab of concealer under my eyes (gotta cover those new mom under eye circles!!). Immediately following that I apply the Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation using a small makeup sponge. As you can see in the photo above it evens out my skin tone, helps the under eye concealer cover the dark circles, but still had a natural look to it. Then I apply my eye makeup, just a touch of eye shadow and mascara. That’s it, my normal every day matte look routine!
The foundation itself doesn’t feel heavy on my skin. In fact once it was applied I couldn’t even feel it. It was easy to apply and blended well. I chose the Light Ivory shade and it matched fairly well with my skin tone. I might choose a shade darker next time I purchase the foundation though. The coverage was great! It definitely minimized the look of pores and helped cover any blemishes. Again, thumbs up from me!!
Your turn: Have you tried the Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation? If not, what’s your go to foundation??
