Stay Matte Primer
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kat in KY from This slays the oil Dragon!!! I have struggled with oily skin since my teens and I'm now 64. Blotting papers or tissues were my constant companion until I tried this primer on a whim. Buying it was one of my best makeup decisions ever!! I tap it on my T-zone and partway across my cheeks, then follow with foundation and a bit of blush - I'm good to go until mid-afternoon. By then, I do need a blotting paper around my nose but only one. People with normal or dry skin cannot possibly understand what a miracle that is!! I find it equally useful on days without foundation, only a bit of mineral powder. For me, tapping it on instead of spreading with a finger works best. Thank you, Rimmel, for giving an older dog a new trick!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by clao from Best primer I have tried Okay people, gather round: THIS IS THE GREATEST PRIMER. I have tried several other brands on the higher end and NOTHING beats this one. I was skeptical at first but I tried it and it works. It works on its own and it works with a setting spray. It works with several consistencies of foundation. It works with BB creams. It works on cold weather, dry heat (hello Mexican desert) and humid heat (hello Houston, TX). That is the last part that got me, Houston is a special kind of humid place and this product still works. I am sold forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by IAMM3Z from New to primer I won this primer in a Rimmel London contest. This was my first time working with a primer and I really enjoy it. It works really well with the Rimmel London Stay Matte foundation. It made my skin feel moisturized without making my skin feel greasy. It was very light weight and absorbed in my skin nicely. I feel like it made my foundation apply more smoothly and made it last longer. I also liked that I didn't have any breakouts after using it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Yunilee from Great product I normally do not write a review of any product, but this product really is very good. I have tried out too many primers even expensive products but they recommended this product to me and now I wonder why I spend so much money on other products when this product exists

Rated 1 out of 5 by TO96 from Worst Primer I bought this primer about a week ago and have been using it almost every day and it is terrible. The product is so thick it feels like chalk. Also did not keep my makeup from oxidizing or staying for too long. Felt super heavy and made my makeup look cakey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kelly Leigh from I have found The One! My face is oily. Very very extremely oily. I have tried popular primers from the drug store tier to high end, mattifying, oil control, long lasting, but every single day at about 12 PM, my face was just covered in icky shiny oil showing through my foundation or BB cream. Enter my Ipsy bag from December that contained this Rimmel London mattifying primer. My first reaction was to throw it in a drawer of unused makeup. Then one day I decided to give it a shot. My makeup game was forever changed! I have used this EVERY single day since discovering it. My BB cream stays matte ALL day, from when I put it on at 7 AM until taking it off at 5 PM. The only place I can see any sign of oil coming through is right in the creases on the sides of my nose, and this usually only starts at around 2 PM. Once blotted super easily and quickly, I am good to go! I just can't say enough about this amazing holy grail primer!!! The next best thing besides how great it works is the price!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Inl_Beauty from Love it... Wish it was a tiny bit more tacky I really love the feel and look of it, however, I do wish it was more tacky. I feel that when a primer is tacky it really helps the foundation stick to it. I love that it keeps my skin feeling nice and moisturized while keeping me matte and with minimal pores.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KirstenD from Long Lasting! I'm so impressed with this primer that I don't think I'll ever go back to using another. Before this, I used the Almay Smart Shade Primer and the smell was a bit nauseating for me. This primer has no scent, is incredibly light, and it makes my foundation last from beginning of school until night which is a definite plus. I definitely recommend investing in this product if you use the Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation, just because it's a great combo.
