I am a part of the oily skin gang. I try not to be upset about it, because even if I am shining bright like a diamond at the end of the day ... I heard I might get less wrinckles in the future. And seeing one of my aunt which had the same oily skin as I do, looking twenty years younger than she actually is.. let's say I have some good hopes for that. Anyway, that's why I kinda like priming my face before my foundation routine, so I can control the oil on my skin a little bit better. I decided to review today the Stay Matte Primer from Rimmel. I think Rimmel is one of the best drugstore brand on the market for face products, and this primer is no exception. The consistancy is quite thick, and the product is white. I really feel like it controls the oil on my face as soon as I apply it. I motsly concentrate it on the T-Zone, let it set a bit and than apply my favourite foundation. It really does the job and keep me matte for quite a long part of the day even if I don't put any powder! It has no smell which is a good point and even with my foundation on it doesn't make me feel caky. 


  1. Nice review! I don't have an oily skin, but I heard too that people with oily skin doesn't get wrinkled in the future, so you are lucky :)
    You have a lovely blog, maybe you wanna follow each other on GFC and bloglovin? let me know!

  2. I don't have oily skin so this wouldn't suit me, but I love BB creams! Great post :)

  3. I've heard mixed reviews on this especially for people with dry skin such as myself but I've been thinking to pick it up so I can use it for my shiny t-zone. Great post!


    1. Yes I don't know if I would recommend it for dry skin, because if it dries out my oily face I don't know what it would do on dry and sensitive skin.

      However if you have a shiny T-zone, you should definetly try it on that specific area. I think I got it for 3pounds on Asos during their beauty sales so if it's not working for you, you won't really lose much!

  4. I have combination skin, so I'm game to try any product targeted towards oily or dry skin. I've been using Hourglass's primer for a while, and while I loved it at first I'm not so keen on it anymore. I think I may switch to Smashbox's primer water spray, but before that I may give this a go.

  5. Really good review, I have a normal skin but it can look really glowy sometimes so maybe i could try that primer out too xx

  6. Glad you found a perfect product x

  7. Really good review :) x


  8. I've heard quite a number of people like this! I wasn't too fond of the original Stay Matte so it's good that they revamped it.
