Back to the good old roots of budget friendly yet good quality. I found this Stay Matte Mousse Foundation by Rimmel and it is great! It can be risky with mousse and oily skin to not look glowing but shinning. This claims to be a lightweight shine control foundation – bonus points.
Before: As you can see my skin naturally shines, and is acne prone with some under eye circles (not severe but there). I look for in a foundation, one that covers acne, controls the oil and stays put.
I have found this in my $8 CAD purchase.
This is purely foundation and mascara. No blush, bronzer, powder, anything. As you can clearly see it covers quite well and keeps the shine away. As I wore it through the day, I did add some powder and found no issues. There was a little under eye loss of product but nothing major or devastating.
Overall, 4/5 thumbs up.
