Having combination skin, I know it’s important to use it under make up. Though it’s often mistaken as an alternative to moisturiser, it’s not! So make sure you keep up moisturising lovelies. It’s part of your preparation routine before putting on your make up.
Looking at online reviews I found Rimmel’s Stay Matte Primer had a lot of mixed bag of reviews, the positives I read hailing it as “Best budget buy” , the negatives were about the texture and some about it not working for them. At £5.99 I thought what the heck, my skin is combination/oily so meets the criteria and pricewise it isn’t too bad.

So unfortunately for me this wasn’t good for my skin, doesn’t work as well as I’d hoped. I’d say it lasts about 3-4hrs but then shine starts to come through. I don’t have excessively oily skin so had thought this was going to be ok sadly it was not meant to be.
They say you pay for what you get and at £5.99 you can’t argue about the price, but as a product I’d say there are far better products in the market. So my pursuit continues for a good matt primer. I’m currently testing using Too Faced as heard lots of great things about it so will let you know how I get on.
Do you have combination/oily skin? Have you tried this product, what did you think?
What primer do you use to keep it under control? Drop me a line and let me know what you think.
