Unless it is a special occasion, I usually don’t bother with too much makeup. One makeup product I use on a daily basis, however, is foundation. I rely on foundation to even my skin tone and conceal my flaws. I recently saw Rimmel Cool Matte Mousse Foundation on my local drugstore shelf and decided to give this beauty product a try. Here is what I discovered about this foundation.
I was initially intrigued by Rimmel Cool Matte Mousse Foundation since the lid advertises that this product lasts for sixteen hours. It is very frustrating to apply makeup first thing in the morning to have it all but disappear before noon. My days are long and busy and I don’t have the time or the desire to frequently retouch my makeup during the day. I was able to purchase a .60 fluid ounce glass jar of Rimmel Cool Matte Mousse Foundation for less than five dollars on sale. The full price of this foundation is $6.79. This is a comparable price for foundations purchased at drugstores or discount department stores that sell beauty and makeup products.
I have very fair, Irish skin so I chose the 101 Porcelain shade of Rimmel Cool Matte Mousse Foundation. Eyeballing the foundation from the side of the jar gave me a better idea of what this product would look like on my skin than by the label on the top of the jar. This product line has quite a few shades to choose from which makes finding the appropriate shade for most foundation users quite easy.
Immediately upon opening the jar, I noticed how thick and creamy the foundation was. I used a makeup sponge to begin applying the product to my freshly washed face. I have learned over the years that it is best to start with a small amount of foundation and apply more in areas where needed. This is certainly more time consuming than just coating the face with one, thick layer but the result is a more natural looking appearance and a great way to eliminate waste. The Rimmel Cool Matte Mousse Foundation spread very evenly and left my face with a very smooth coverage. The real test of this product was if it would live up to it’s claim that it lasts for sixteen hours.
I am happy to report that Rimmel Cool Matte Mousse Foundation does indeed provide long lasting wearibility. The foundation remained intact and still looked fresh by bedtime. With just a little bit of powder and one trip to the mirror to blot away some shine in my T Zone in the afternoon, my makeup looked very much like it did first thing in the morning. I was very, very pleased with this product and give it five out five beauty stars.
