Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation Review

10/11/2012
Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation £6.99

 
I wouldn’t consider myself a budget conscious foundation user, I tend to use high end foundations as I find the finish and quality to be much better, however I was excited to try this new offering from Rimmel. I haven’t stopped wearing the Wake Me Up Foundation since I got it months and months ago which is very unusual for me. The True Match Perfection foundation is designed to adapt to both your skins tone and texture. I swatched the shades carefully in-store and found the second shade 103 (True Ivory) was my best match. I know on my hand it looks very orange which is bizarre because it is one of the lightest shades, I think my hands must be super pale!
 
I really liked this foundation, it has a very good consistency, not too thick or too thin and on application I found you only needed the smallest amount to get a good medium coverage for your whole face. I liked that it let my skin breathe too and allowed my freckles to still be visible. I also found my blemishes were nearly completely erased (I added a touch of Estee Lauder double wear concealer to the stubborn ones!) 
 
I would say it felt very moisturizing on, not too dissimilar to a BB cream, I think that alone makes it perfect for an Autumn/Winter release as my skin needs plenty of hydration in the cold weather. The finish is matte but without being chalky, I would describe it as a luminous matte look. It masters that whole ‘your skin only better’ thing with ease. I would recommend it without question and think it is an absolute steal at £6.99! I also noticed a huge shade selection so you shouldn’t have any issues matching your skintone.
 
What do you think of Rimmel foundations?
Are you a high end or budget base sort of girl?
Let me know!

  1. Hi 🙂 I was just wondering how you found this foundation after a few hours wear? I really liked the Wake Me Up foundation too, but I found it sort of slid off my face after a few hours :/ XX

  2. Hi hun, I found it really long lasting, foundations can do that on me too but this one lasted all day and I didn’t wear a primer first. I have just seen in cosmo and company that there are sachets of the foundation with a range of shades to try so maybe grab a mag and try it out first to be sure though? xx

  3. That’s a really good idea, thank you 🙂 XX
