Lets get talking about the most talked about drugstore foundation in the world of beauty off-late. This is the second foundation from Rimmel that I will be reviewing. Prior to this I’ve reviewed the Rimmel – Wake Me Up foundation and the Kate Moss Edition Lipsticks. You can click here for a quick read through.
The Rimmel MATCH PERFECTION foundation stays true to its word and has a colour for almost everyone out there. From pink/warm and neutral tones. Has the ability to match perfectly and blend in really well to the closest shade of your skin. Its great for those who like a flawless and understated coverage. It comes in 12 shades and considering its a drugstore foundation thats a huge plus!
Here’s a low down on the foundation:
Coverage – The coverage is from sheer/light and is buildable to medium. I absolutely love the fact that I don’t have to work my way up with the foundation to blend in as it literally disappears like you don’t have anything on – traceless for sure. It is an ultimate product for an everyday wear and office look as the texture is light and looks seamless on the skin. It settles in dewy which is great but you probably will need to conceal the problematic areas such as acne/dark spots.
SPF – Contains SPF 20 which means you don’t need to wear SPF before the application.
Skin – Perfect for normal to dry and combination skin types.
Application – I use it with the Real Techniques buffing brush and a primer before the application so that the foundation can last longer.
Shade – I use it in the shade Ivory. I could also match the shade in True Ivory as they both are pretty close.
Packaging – Comes in a glass bottle with a pump dispenser and is quite easy to use. You can control the amount you require and add on extra if required.
I will give this foundation 2 thumps up. If you are on a lookout for a light coverage day to day foundation then this is the one for you. Even better during winters as it stays on for longer and does not need constant touch ups. For long lasting results set it with a setting powder once applied and you’re good to go!
