I was surprised at how well this makeup setter works - it's refreshing and a nice final step that really helps 'lock in' your look and yet not add additional shine. (Rimmel London - Stay Matte Setting Spray). Wonderful!
Never ever has anything worked this well to knock down shine, and that includes actual powder and foundation and mineral products. If I apply nothing, within half an hour of washing my face I start to "glow." In the summer when I typically use a matte sunscreen and 10.0.6 Seriously Shine Free moisturizer, my T-zone might make it for an hour before it starts to shine. With this stuff I can golf or bike in 90 degree weather, sweat up a storm and there's zero shine on my face. Zero. None. In fact I forgot to put it on a few times (it's last in my routine), my face started to glow, I put it on and BAM -- shine gone! What I love about it the most is that I don't have to wear any foundation and still look put together in the heat of summer. It seems thick when you put it on, but once it gets on your skin and warms up it will spread nicely. Great product. I hope they never stop making it because it's a life-changer for me.
I like that this primer is a spray bottle. That’s why I bought it. I didn’t want something else to rub into my face. I like that the spray is light and refreshing. I put it on after my hyaluronic acid serum. I start my next face product while it is drying. I think it keeps down the shine, but I am not a person with a very oily face. I didn’t use it as a setting spray because I like to use some powder as the last product of my makeup routine. I’m satisfied with the results for an average face. The price is very reasonable. I hope my review aids you in your decision to buy or not buy this Rimmel matte spray.
WORKS for combo/oily skin! I was skeptical at first but once i tried it(for 6 hours) I couldn’t believe how well it worked for the price i paid! I put this on after using light moisturizer on my face since i have oily skin, mainly on my forhead, between brows, nose and chin, then concealer, setting powder. I do not wear foundation, so I can’t comment if it would work well with that. Went about my day, cooked dinner, went for a walk outside, 5-6 hours later i looked in the mirror, only minor shine on the tip of my nose and forehead, my makeup actually stayed in place and looked really good! Needless to say i highly recommend giving this product a try!
