Size: 0.60 fl oz 18 ml, comes in a small glass jar
I actually have bought this foundation for quite sometime, yet I haven’t had any chance to try it out because I wanted to finish my Maybelline Aqua Smooth gel foundation first. I just tossed the tube out yesterday so now it’s time for Rimmel!
From what I know, Rimmel was the pioneer in mascara invention. I love their Glam Eyes mascara! It’s one of my favorite mascara and I use it practically almost everyday lol. I will review the mascara soon too, so stay tuned 😉 For now, it’ll be the mousse foundation first. Let’s start it!
Prepare your eyes. You’re gonna see some horrifying pictures!
The scary picture continues on…….
Yes, this how my face looks like after applying the foundation. Pardon the weird face! The foundation gives a light to medium coverage as some of the redness are concealed well. The foundation has this very light scent which I can’t describe (lol!) but it doesn’t smell like chemicals. The texture is very soft and not as dry and powdery as Maybelline mousse foundation (that one sucks big time! Leaving me with patchy face and lines here and there). Soon after I finished applying the foundation, I notice that my skin starts to feel a bit dry (I suppose it’s due to its mattifying formula) but not tight (hmmm….).
When applying this foundation, I suggest you to use your good old method, your hand! Since it dries out quickly, if you tried applying it with a foundation brush it may dry up before you finish blending it. This is my trick anyway, if you have some other tricks, do let me know 🙂
Well I didn’t wear it for 16 hours, lol. I think I wore it for only 10 hours and my skin is still matte at the end of the day :D. Note that Malaysia’s weather has gone nuts lately, it’s extra ordinarily hot and perspiration is sometimes unavoidable -_-;. Not that I’m complaining, I grew up in a much more hotter area lol. Moreover, if you stay in this country or any other tropical areas which are experiencing this crazy hot weather and you usually apply foundation on your neck as well, I don’t think it’s a better idea. Even though it has good mattifying formula, it doesn’t prevent melting. Just a piece of advice 😉
Overall, I still like this foundation and it works well for me despite me having a dry skin. For those who have oily skin, you should try this foundation out 😀
Plus: matte finish, not drying up the skin, stays long throughout the day
Minus: slightly scented, dries up quickly upon application
Oh NO! Tomorrow’s monday already. I have 3 assignments due tomorrow and I just started one. Muhaahhahaha. Wish me luck 😛
