Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation

I feel like starting a series called, "Hey, should I get that?" I guess they're called product reviews. Ha! Well, I don't have a smartphone and this was $2 at CVS, so I got it. And my answer to the question is, yes, you should get it.


It's lightweight. I generally don't like drug store foundations, because they feel terrible. This is one of the better ones. The texture isn't too oily. It has a matte finish and it covers my blemishes pretty well. If you look at the bare face picture, you can see blemishes on my skin and kind of uneven skin tone. With the product on, my chin looks pretty clear and even. The only thing I don't like about this foundation is that looks a little bit powdery once it dried. I hate seeing tiny little grains on my face, but it's no worse than mineral foundation.

The product:

Bare face:


With the foundation:


Not bad. I think without the sale, it's around $8.

Post-finals trip. I finished my last final on Saturday and on Sunday morning, Kevin and I were on a plane to NY. We rented a car and went upstate. I went to see the gorges at Cornell and visit my friends in Ithaca. We stayed with my brother for a night and made our way back to the city.

Our first night out, we went to Times Square. I think this red bleacher thing is new.

We went everywhere our one day in the city. I hate asking strangers to take pictures, so most of our pictures were taken by setting up the timer and placing the camera on random objects.

Last bar review ever! Didn't bring my camera, so I am waiting to be tagged. I like how my hair turned out that night. (No extensions!)
