Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation - First Impressions

Wednesday, 18 November 2015
I thought I would try out the Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation after seeing Dani Mansutti recommend it in one of her videos. This foundation claims to have 'invisible coverage' and have a 'weightless, smooth texture'. It also has SPF 20 and says that it reduces 'imperfections, pores and dark circles'. 

At £7.99 it is affordable and about an average price for a drugstore foundation. I got it in the shade Ivory and it matches my skin tone pretty well, although it was darker than other Ivory foundations that I own.

I first applied it at 8.15 in the morning, using the Rimmel Fix and Perfect Primer underneath and my usual Collection Concealer and Rimmel Stay Matte Powder on top. I used a damp Real Techniques sponge and I found that it applied quite patchy at first, and it was quite difficult to blend it all in. It is quite a thick foundation yet gives a light to medium coverage. I found that I had to build up the foundation to cover my imperfections and to achieve a smooth finish. However once I had done this I found that it actually looked quite natural looking and it did make my skin look smooth and healthy. 

Two hours later, after walking to the Doctors, my foundation still looks the same. It hasn't creased or started to go oily, which is a good sign!

My T zone is starting to look a bit oily and there are a few creases, along with it fading slightly around my nose. Apart from that my foundation still looks fine! It hasn't started to go patchy yet although I am starting to feel like I just want to take it off!

I am so ready to take my make up off!! My skin does look quite shiny around the T zone area and it's starting to fade more around my nose and mouth. However it still looks okay to say I've had it on all day! I haven't touched up my make up at all today and I'm actually really impressed with how it's lasted!

Overall my first impressions are that this is a good drugstore foundation, and there are better ones on the market, but this isn't bad for Rimmel!

Thank you for reading :)

  1. Thanks for a great post darl xx

  2. I always find that Rimmel foundation shades are darker than other brands?! I don't know it's really weird because they seem to cater for super pale skin but then there's a massive gap between that and the next shade! Xx

    1. I'm so glad I'm not the only one that's noticed that they're darker! Like usually ivory is a perfect match for my skin but with this one it was slightly too dark although it worked fine after using concealer and powder! Xx
