Rimmel Stay Matte foundation

It's been a long time coming here in the UK, but the sun has FINALLY got his act together and put his hat on, which is lovely but also means a hasty switch up of make-up for me, especially with my long-moaned about oily skin.  Granted, Alpha-H is doing a sterling job with it, but I can still only use an oil-free base in warmer months.  This is where Rimmel Stay Matte foundation comes into play.  I bought it on a whim a month or so ago, and didn't really have high expectations but....well, let me show you my face after a 12 hour day and no powder.  That's right, you heard me.  No. Powder.
I even stood right in the sunlight to make sure any shiny spots shone.  I'm pretty impressed.  It's not particularly great on coverage; not bad, but I could do with a little more.  In real life it looks better than it photographs, but as I'm not in the business of being papped very often, I don't mind that.  Will I buy this again?  Yes.  Need I say more? No.
