Leep you from looking like you just smeared that jar of vaseline on yoir cute little face. Stays matte like it says and gives you a nice smooth base. Stay away from it's sister foundation, though. Haven't been nearly as happy with the results

I am a makeup artist and stumbled upon rimmel primer while in a hurry. I had left my primer at home when we went out of town for a wedding. I picked this up at walgreens because it was cheap and I had expensive stuff at home, so didn't want to spend to much. This holds makeup on great and hides pores. I use and recommend to all clients

I sort of like this primer. It made my makeup too dewy. It has great tube packaging and purchased this at Walgreens. I'm not sure if I like it as much as my other high end. I don't think I would re purchase.

Great primer for the summer but for the winter it can be alil drying in some areas of the face depending if you're oily skin or combination so be careful but other than that is great I love ❤️ I would recommend it and I enjoy it

If you are looking for a great, drugstore, mattifying primer, look no more. I needed a quick primer that was free of silicone to go with some new makeup I had just received. This worked wonderfully! If you are looking for a good silicone-free primer, I would definitely recommend this one.

This is the best drug store primer I have tried! I like the elf ones too but this one you can definitely tell that it mattifies your face. My foundation looks flawless and lasts all day. Instead of paying loads of money I'll stick to 7 bucks!!

I have oily to combination skin, and I've used this with foundation and without it, on its own. With foundation it does leave a very matte finish although it's not very long lasting, but on its own it works fine, keeps the oils from getting through and I wear it on its own when running errands or when I just don't want to wear make up...

This is one of my favorite drug store primers. This primer really helps my oliy skin stay nice & matte throughout the day. Its an affordable product that I highly recommend. Rimmel London Stay Matte Primer is light weight on the skin,very hydrating, and minimizes the apperance of pores.

This product definitely has its pro's and con's it's is good for helping keep the shine slightly under control but it leaves a patchy white residue if you try to wear it alone for the price it's good it does the job but overall it's just ok

I have really oily skin and it always looks shiny does the matte primer help reduce that shine and does it keep my make up from running? How much? And where can I find it

Did this break anyone else out? And does anyone know what is in it that might cause breakouts?
