Review - Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation & Rimmel Fix & Perfect Pro Primer 002

9. january 2014 at 11:55 | Simee |  Beauty reviews

As you can tell by the title of this blog post, i will be reviewing these two products. I went to Boots the other day to find a new foundation and primer, because the one i use is no longer doing the job and i like trying new stuff, i came across these two products, so i thought why not give it a go.


The primer has five claims 1. Smoothes 2. Resurfaces 3. Brightens 4. Mattifies 5. Protects.

The consistency of it is more like a lotion which for me is a plus, as it's easier and quicker to work with.
When i put this on my face, my skin feels smooth immediately. I found that it absorbs really well too, which results into less oily skin through the day. It DOES refresh my skin, or at least that's what it feels like wearing it. It definitely has the mattifying effect on my skin, and i haven't found a primer that would take care of my oily skin/shine as much until now, i can go way longer with this primer before the shine. So if you too, have an oily skin this might be for you. Protectionwise i don't think it lives up to that claim, but i find this with every primer i have used so far. I did however notice a breakout after using this product for the first time, but i am not sure if this was the primer's fault or just the 'time of the month'. I would definitely repurchase this primer as it's cheap and for a drugstore product does what it says on the bottle.


1. A feather-light, liquid mousse that blends flawlessly for natural-looking and an all day shine control 2. Silky smooth formula for a perfectly matte, baby-soft finish 3. Lightweight texture won't feel heavy or greasy 4. Minimises the appearance of pores

Now these are the claims of this foundation. Are they true? YES! I normally use higher more expensive foundations, because i feel like they are better for your skin. But after purchasing this one, I AM IN LOVE WITH IT. My skin feels amazing, the foundation is so light on the skin i can hardly feel i'm wearing any. Saying that, it still has a really good coverage. I hate those type of foundations that make your face look really 'cakey' before they cover anything but this one doesn't. Like i said many times i have an oily skin, but this foundation took care of that. No more shine and oil for me. And it actually lasted that way for a whole day. Since i put it on at 7am until i took it off at 10pm, without the need to touch up with powder or blotting sheets. However i would not recommend this product if you have dry skin. Love the packaging, it's easy to just squeeze out of the tube in comparison to pump bottle foundations. The ONLY downfall iof this product is a quite a small range of shades, so hopefully Rimmel will decide to make these in a bit wider variety. All in all i'm giving this product 11 out of 10. Will definitely keep using it.

I hope this article has helped you if you weren't sure whether to purchase these items or not, or even if you wanted to try something new and didn't know what to go for.

Doctor Who is now considered a British Institute and has come a long way since it first aired on November 23rd 1963. The very first show saw the Doctor travel 100,00 years into the past to help some dim cavemen discover light. After 26 seasons and seven Doctors later the series came off our screens in 1989 much to the disappointment of the huge devoted fanbase. In 1996 an attempt was made to revive Doctor Who but it wasnt until June 2005 when it came back with a vengeance with Christopher Eccleston as the ninth Doctor that put the series back on the map as it were. It then went on for 5 years with David Tenant portraying the Doctor until 2010 when Matt Smith took over the role. Today it is still a great family show and has attracted many new fans.
