I have been using this primer for around 3 weeks and cannot stress enough how much I love love love it!. This primer was a gamble as I had not read any reviews on it before as it had only just launched. What tempted me to try it was the attractable price tag of £5.99. I would happily pay more for it as I feel its an absolute bargain at that price. The simple white and purple packaging is not overly fussy and simply chic. The fact that it’s a squeeze tube is a bonus as it mean you can get every last bit out of the 30ml tube and control how much product you need.
The texture has a lightweight feel of a moisturiser but slightly thick – I think this is due to the silicone. The primer itself has a white colour to it but once rubbed in becomes transparent . I usually dot this dot the primer onto my face , starting in the areas I am prone to shine and rub into my skin in circular motions. Rimmel claims the primer will help you stay matte for up to 8 hours and can be worn on top of underneath your makeup. I put the primer underneath my MAC studio fix foundation but on top of my moisturiser and it makes my makeup look flawlessly matte all day – even after a 9 hours shift at work.
If you suffer from oily/combination skin you should definitely try this primer. Overall this has to be the BEST drugstore primer I have tired and I have tried a few! The Rimmel Stay matte primer is now a staple in the makeup essentials. I can confidently say I think that I have found my holy grail primer.
