Rimmel London Stay Matte Mousse Foundation

I've seen hundreds of adverts for this foundation in so many magazines lately. It seems to be really popular yet nobody I know has tried it so I thought that I'd be the first.
At 5.99 it's already cheaper than my 7.99 foundation that I regularly buy. When I got home I put it on straight away. It's a bit thicker than I'm used to as I prefer liquid to mousse foundations.

The colour (100 - Ivory) matched my skin tone really well which was a surprise since I'm pretty bad at picking out foundation shades. It's really smooth when applied and easy to blend. Another thing I love about it is that you don't use as much as you would with a non-mousse foundation. I only needed a little bit to cover my face and blend into my neck.
It lasted a good 7 hours before slightly fading, but if this is an issue for you I would recommend a fixing mist to keep it in place for a couple more extra hours.
I've not been very impressed with mousse foundations in the past, but I really like this one and will continue using it. 

Score: 9/10
