While this product can be found for an amazing price, its performance is rather lacking. If you have clear skin and are only looking for a light base for uour makeup this will suit you, but if you skin is dry or you have acne this is not for you. This foundation has little to no coverage, and looks cakey if you layer it. It highlights dry skin and creates unsightly flaking.

I tried this foundation once. I thought it would help with my extremely oily skin but it didn't. This formula is dries very quickly and has no blendability. Applying this would result in uneven coverage and streaks. Trying to sponge in uneven areas did not help at all. I was already too pale for the lightest shade and it became even darker by oxidizing. One of the cheapest and WORST foundations ever made.

Esta base ha sido una gran decepción. Tenia mucha expectativa con ella, ya que promete mantener la piel sin brillos, entre otras cosas. Su cobertura es baja, al aplicarse En el rostro quedan como"parches", es decir, no se funde bien en el rostro. La única manera de poder utilizarla, es mezclada con otras bases. No la recomiendo.

This is a horrible Foundation it gives no coverage it's hard to blend it in. It dries to quickly its streaky and sinks in to my pores horribly. The spatula stick is cool but the formula is horrible.. I would not recommend to anyone.. it also has a weird scent..

This foundation is terrible. It cakes easy, doesn't look natural, and oxidized about three shades deeper after about forty minutes on my skin. To make matters worse, it looked very orange after oxidizing. This product was a huge let down, I will be purchasing other rimmel foundations instead of this one.

I bought this a few days ago and I was so excited to try it, it applied it as soon as I got back in the car. Now my skin was a little oil at the time, but it spread on like a dream and immediately soaked up all the oil! I was in love. However, the next morning was a different story. After washing, toning, and moisturizing my face, I applied the foundation.... I was horrified. I dotted my face with the spatula and then set out to blending... I had just gotten everything spread over my face and started on the "details" (nose crevice, blending into neck, under eye area, etc.), this is where the horror set in. Everything was already set. When I tried to blend it just pulled the product off my face. At first i thought maybe I just didn't apply it correctly so I decided to try a different approach this morning, using a damp sponge. More horror, this method made the makeup translucent, I just looked like a had a milky film on my face. Now as far as what it promises... less oil, smaller looking pores... it does and that's the only reason I graded this as a C and not lower! But you better make sure that you get it on just right in the first 45 seconds, otherwise you'll need to start all over. Also you can't layer this product, it just wipes off what is already there when you try to go back over it and leaves splotchy, "clumped" areas...

I have to disagree with quite a few of the more negative posts on this product. I love it!! It is a wonderful foundation in my opinion, I'm shade Natural Ivory . I use it with the Rimmel Stay Matte primer (white bottle purple lid) and a stipple brush then the Stay Matte Pressed Powder in translucent. I have VERY oily skin and normal every foundation I have ever put on my face seem to be gone with in hours. BUT not this one. The first day I used this combo I was spending all day at Disney in the sun and heat and sweating. I put is on at around 7am and by 6pm when I was getting ready for dinner I just touched up my powder and It looked as fresh as it did that morning. I think it blends well, I have to work with it just a bit more than other foundation but not anything that is time consuming. I also love the applicator, the little paddle is so neat and it great when you accidentally get too much out.

Would I repurchase? Yes!
Would I recommend? Yes!

I don’t know what it is about this foundation but i could not get the foundation to actually cover anything up on my face. It seemed more like a tinted moisturizer. It’s coverage isn’t good. If you’re wanting lighter wear, this is for you!

Not the biggest fan of this foundation. It’s supposed to be matte, but I’d say it’s more oily than anything. It makes your skin too shiny & it doesn’t have very good coverage. The applicator is also super weird. I wouldn’t recommend this.

Worst. Product. Ever.

This is supposed to have oil control, and be for oily skin? Well Rimmel, that's what I have and it did the exact opposite. While applying, it start separating. Like oil and water. I was confused and kept going and tried to ignore it. But then I just see random open spots of no foundation, where I applied it! I tried covering in hopes it would stay, and not so much. I went to apply concealer, and I couldn't even blend it out. After so much frustration I took it all off and returned it. It was only $4, but I definitely expected more.

Anybody know if this product is discontinued? If so, any recommendations for combination/oily skin? I have combination/oily skin, and redness on my cheeks. I would like medium coverage, not so heavy, and not 'cakey.' MUST BE CHEAP (8$ MAX!) Please.. In desperate need.
