Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation review

I have a problem with extremely oily yet combination skin. My forehead tends to be very oily, but my jawline & nose is dry. sent me Rimmel Stay Matte foundation to try out in a VoxBox.
Rimmel London Stay Matte is thick and mousse like. It doesnt apply very easily, as without a sponge it creates streaks. However, with the proper tools (a dampened sponge was best) it applies quite nicely. Even though its thick, it is transparent coverage in my opinion. The good news is, my oily spots stayed matte through the evening. I did not have runs, or coagulation of my foundation which is usually an issue with most foundations/bbcreams.
The overall look is VERY matte, which I personally do not like. I do like some dewiness in my cheeks so that look must be achieved with a slightly sparkly blush when using this foundation. The downside is if you have dry spots or dry skin. This will make your dry spots look like a dessert and doesnt look good at ALL on dry skin.
I suppose, if so inclined, one could mix it with moisturizer for those dry spots.

I would highly recommend this to those of us with very oily skin only.

I received this product to test via Influenster. My opinions are my own

Primp & Prep for a girls night out

This post brought to you by Hpnotiq. All opinions are 100% mine.

Sometimes finding helpful information on preparing for a girl's night out is not easy. Interestingly, besides just peeking at blogs, many of which focus on daytime fashion, Hpnotiq has come up with a wonderful site. It has a plethora of great tips for style, beauty, and recipes.

The website is both trendy and useful for when its time to Primp & Prep for an adventurous night out with the girls. Or even for a night with with great at home cocktail recipes!

I actually quite enjoyed passing through the pages of the site preparing for my New Years girls night. We started at my house mixing a few drinks & checking out makeup tips.  Later in the evening we left for the casino to enjoy the rest of our evening together.

All in all I really appreciated the following aspects of Hpnotiq Primp & Prep... First, the recipes. As a former bartender I'm pretty good at mixing drinks, but sometimes a recipe is great for some new ideas. My friends had me print out a few of the offered recipes for them also. I also found the makeup & nail polish tips very interesting.

Let your hair down music up!
