Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation | Review

Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation

For the last couple of months I have been using Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation non-stop and so I thought now would be the best time to share my thoughts on it with you. 

Firstly, I love the packaging of the foundation, it's contained in a thin, clear 30ml glass bottle with a blue cap on the top and includes a built in pump dispenser. I love that it comes with the built in pump, I find it more hygienic and there's zero chance of any wastage. 

And the price range? Well you can purchase it from Superdrug for £7.99 which is quite reasonable.

When I first tried the Rimmel Match Perfection foundation out I instantly took a dislike to it and put it back in my muji drawers, regrettably. A week later I decided to take it back out and give it another chance. Well, after a few days of testing it out, I was not at all disappointed by it. Since then I have gone through two bottles of the stuff and looking to purchase another.

As my skintone is quite fair, I have the lighest of the shades, Porcelain. It's not the perfect match for my skintone but it's pretty close. I would say the Rimmel Match Perfection foundation is of a medium coverage, maybe not a high enough coverage to hide my horrific acne scars but it's buildable. 

I would say the consistency of the Rimmel Match Perfection is quite thin, so it's easily blendable and feels quite lightweight on the skin, it almost feels like you don't have anything on your face which is such a nice feeling.

To apply the foundation, I blend and buff it into the skin with either my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush or my favourite, the Keshima Flat Top Kabuki Brush and the finish is incredible. Maybe not entirely flawless but that's down to my not so brilliant, spot prone skin. It looks entirely natural, not cakey at all and it has the most beautiful illuminating effect on my skin which I quite like.

How did I not like this in the beginning? Maybe it was the coverage I didn't quite like but I have grown to love it. I will definitely be making a repurchase of this soon.
