Today I'll be reviewing the Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation that I purchased 6-8 weeks ago. It's been in two of my monthly favourite's post's and it's almost empty already!
I bought this because I was so happy with the swatch in store, it was the first foundation I'd swatched for months that actually looks close to my natural skin colour.
The shade I bought was Light Porcelain.
Application : After trying various ways on how to apply it in the last few weeks I find that I prefer to either use a dense foundation brush or my fingers. I find it very blendable and easy to apply. I also love that it doesn't cling to much to my dry patches
Coverage : Sheer to medium - I find that the coverage all depends on how I apply it, if I'm using my dense foundation brush then I get a nice medium coverage but If I apply with my fingers I get a nice sheer coverage. It covers redness very well although I like to use a concealer for covering those pesky blemishes!
Finish: Match perfection is enhanced with 'Sapphire Radiance' for a illuminating glow. This means that it gives a lovely dewy finish. I find this great for my skin type but may not be to everyones taste.
Lasting Power: I find it lasts around 5 - 6 hours on my skin, great for days when you're just popping out to the shops and doing daily tasks. I find if I'm going somewhere special and i'm out all day or night then I'd want something with slightly more lasting power.
Packaging: I really like the packaging and find that the pump helps to make applying the foundation a lot easier and travel friendly. The packaging can get dirty over time but as it's a glass bottle then it's very easy to clean. I love the blue cap and writing, making it very eye catching in store but not too crass.
Overall Rating : I give the foundation a 4 out of 5 ! It's a great foundation for Spring/Summer due to it's dewy finish and sheer - medium coverage. The price is also great which means I have no worries about re-purchasing it.
I really enjoyed using this product and although I'm going to be trying out some other foundations in the next few months, I now have a foundation I can lean back on again and again.
You can buy this foundation in Boot's and Superdrug Instore and Online.
