When I was picking up this new lipstick as it was on 3 for 2 I decided to try the new stay matte foundation. I’m struggling lately to found foundation pale enough. I think any colour I had from the summer has definitely disappeared.
It is in a simple squeezy tube which is practical for this type of foundation as a bottle wouldn’t work well with getting the product out. You get 30ml which is average for foundation and it does come in at a budget friendly £5.99

I was suprised by the texture. I don’t know what I expected from a l.liquid mousse. I find it was quite thick. As the picture below shows when squeezed out it stays where it is on the hand. I does blend into the skin softly. For me at the moment I prefer to use it without primer as I find it is working better.
When blended in it really evens the skin tone out and I was surprised how light it felt on my skin. I thought the thick texture would mean it felt heavy. It did a good job at covering my red cheeks and freckles and gave a good match finish so I barely powdered my face.
Here it is on the skin with only foundation on. Ivory is a good colour match for my pale skin. There is also one shade lighter. Disappointingly there are only 6 shades released so it’s not going to be a foundation for everyone.
Here is the finish with full make up. I really liked the finish. My skin looked healthy without being too covered. I’d say it was a medium to full coverage but didn’t look cakey. It felt light on the skin lasted well throughout the day. Towards the end I find it had caked a bit between my brows but lately all my foundations are doing this.
Overall I’m impressed and definitely think it’s a good winter foundation. I personally prefer fuller coverage foundation for winter.
Have you tried the Stay Matte Liquid Mousse?
