Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation


First off I would like to apologize for the little black splodge that has appeared on all of my photographs recently. I don't know whether I've dropped and damaged my camera or something has got inside the lense! Anyways, I've ordered a new one, which should hopefully be with me on Monday so please bear with me for these couple of posts! 

I always end up coming home from my holiday with a skin tone that no longer matches my foundation so this year I thought I would be clever and buy something a little darker in advance. The Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation sounded like my thing as it clearly states on the bottle: 'Light perfecting radiance foundation'. I adore that gorgeous, glowing, just-back-from-holiday skin so I was won over and when I saw it was on offer I shoved it straight into my basket. I also liked the idea that this foundation blends in with your natural skin tone, and thought that even if it was still a little too light it would at least look like the right colour for me. I picked it up in the shade 'warm honey' which is a couple of shades darker than I'd normally go for and contains yellow undertones. 

This foundation is really easy to blend and I found that a little went rather a long way, however, my oily skin meant that this foundation can not last more than a few hours without sliding all over my face. Add in 33 degree heat and its a recipe for disaster. It's not all bad and the look and finish of the foundation is lovely if you like a natural finish, but unfortunately it isn't all that great for oily skinned gals. I'd suggest that you try Rimmel's Wake Me Up offering instead. If you have dry skin this will probably work well on you although you may still have to use a blotting powder or a primer. 

Have any of you lot used this foundation before? How did you get on with it?

    1. Yeah maybe try wake me up first as this one is quite watery whereas wake me up seems to last really well on my oily skin! It does have a lovely finish though such a shame it doesn't work for me :( xxxx

  2. I tried a free sample of this, I quite liked the finish but I also found it didnt last well (when compared to my holy grail Estee Lauder double wear!)

  3. I just talk with my friend about this foundation recently and she doesn't like it. I still think Rimmel wake me up and Bourjois serum mix are the best drugstore foundation for oily skin like me.
