Rimmel 'Match Perfection' Foundation


After falling in love with YSL Touché Éclat foundation well over a year ago now (especially during the Summer time!) I've always been on the look out for a drugstore alternative that is slightly more purse friendly. Having heard Rimmel's 'Match Perfection' had similarities I headed straight to the shelves. After purchasing this foundation I've come across so many mixed reviews that it made me wander if everyone was even talking about the same product!

'Match Perfection' is designed to adapt to your skin tone to make you look as though you're not wearing foundation, 'a match so perfect its undetectable in any light' say Rimmel. A foundation far lighter than I'd usually go for that I really struggled with to build. I found the consistency extremely runny, thin and watery which was very hard to work with. It offers low coverage but does leave a dewy, satin finish that I usually love. I wanted to love this but I just can't seem to make this work for me. I find it makes my skin look uneven and patchy because the consistency is so runny and sheer. 

Although this foundation hasn't worked for me I would recommend trying it if you to like sheer, dewy bases as there are so many mixed opinions and I know a lot of people who do love it! I think ill try bringing it out again when I'm a little more tanned in the Summer and after a more sheer coverage to see if my opinion changes! 

Whilst at the Rimmel counter I also picked up the Primer that'll ill be letting you all know about shortly!

  1. Such a shame you didn't get on with it, I love this foundation and on me and I find it's definitely medium coverage. Love the honest review and really pretty pictures!
