Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation Review

As a girl who has a never ending wishlist, I am always looking for products that suit my budget.

The 20 shades of Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation

 

Packaging:

It comes in a glass, pump bottle. You can dispense just the right amount of foundation with the pump. However, since it is a glass bottle, it is not convenience to bring around for it is heavy and might break. Luckily it has not break as I accidentally dropped it numerous times. I found that the cap has become loose after a few times of opening and closing it.

A pump dispenser makes it super convenient

Capacity : 30 ml

Texture & Coverage :

Although it claimed to be weightless, the texture of the foundation itself is rather thick than the common liquid foundation. This gives it a medium to full, buildable coverage.

Although the foundation is creamy and has thick consistency, it blends evenly and seamlessly

 

How to Apply:

Step 1: Using a foundation brush, sponge or fingertips, smooth Match Perfection Foundation onto skin.

Step 2: Dot and blend Match Perfection Concealer under eyes to complete your look

Ways to apply : Beauty sponge or Buffing/Foundation Brush

My Verdicts:

The first thing that made me curious upon receiving this foundation is the consistency of the foundation itself. Usually, a creamy and thick foundation tends to leave sticky and uncomfortable layer on the skin. With this thought in mind, I tried the foundation and I was impressed as it spreads out easily and smoothly without giving the feeling of having any foundation on. Wow! It’s weightless and feels like second skin. It blends out seamlessly giving the streak free finish. It does blurs out the pores on my skin. See the photo below, where my hand’s pores are blurred by the foundation.

I applied this foundation using Real Technique’s Buffing Brush and I love the way it gives natural look to my skin. Although using a brush gives the streak free finish, I do, however, prefer to blend the foundation using the Real Technique’s Miracle Complexion Sponge. This is a matter of personal preference. You may use a brush or a sponge as you like.

A single pump is enough to cover the whole face since it is thick and creamy. I have quite a lot of dark spots on my face, so I usually put on 2 layers of the foundation to blur out my imperfections. The dark spots are still visible, but at least, not that obvious. This gives a medium coverage with 2 layers of it. What I like is, even when I have 2 layers of the foundation on, it does not feel heavy at all. By this I meant tackiness or any uncomfortable feeling

I chose the shade 100 Ivory online and it is somehow a little light for my skintone upon application. I noticed that it blends into my natural tone after some time and it really looks better after a few hours. This foundation does not dry my skin throughout the day. In fact, I feel like it does the claim with the 24 Hours Moisture Complex.

Sometimes, I have some dry patches on my skin. I found that I had no issues with this clinging to dry patches or showing up patchy. However, if you do have this issue, you may use powder to set it well right after application.

I really like the radiant and dewy finish the foundation gives. I have oily skin, it does not make my skin looks shiny at all. You may set it with loose powder to have the matte finish.

Rimmel really would impress us with their foundations’ lasting power. I use this foundation for a great 5 to 6 hours with little break down around my under eye and smile lines ( these are the spots where liquid foundation always break down for me) . It does a better job, if I set it with powder since I have oily T-zone.

Overall, I really like this foundation as I have been reaching out for it daily. It really does its claims. Since the price tag is affordable, you should give this foundation a try!
