Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation | Review

Saturday, 11 January 2014




Hello Ladies! I hope you're all having a great weekend, I'm off to see Frozen tonight after waiting for so long to see it! It's not often that I review a foundation on my blog, mainly because I've stuck to the same couple for months now, but after being unhappy with them for so long, I thought it was about time to find a better one which I actually like. I've decided to stick to drugstore for the time being as I'm saving for a laptop so expect to be seeing a couple of drugstore foundation reviews over the next couple of weeks!

After hearing a lot about the Rimmel Match Perfection foundation I decided that I would try this one next. I'd heard that it was good for oily skin and had a medium build-able coverage which was what I was looking for so off I popped to Boots.

The main problem I had with this foundation was its coverage. I like a medium coverage that I can build up in the ares that I need it most, but this foundation was so sheer and hardly covered anything. I usually find that a medium coverage is enough to cover my small blemishes and discolouration but this foundation covered neither. I also found this to be very streaky, no matter how much I blended which trust me, is not a good look. Overall, my skin looked like a washed out, streaky mess. So much so that I felt the need to take it off and start again. 

However, the one thing I did like about this range was the colour choice. I often really struggle to find drugstore foundations which are pale enough for my skin tone but this range did have a pale colour which was light enough for me. Although this wasn't much use after I discovered that I didn't like the foundation. 

I'm sorry for the negative review, and I would suggest you try this out for yourself before making your mind up because I know so many of you love it - but I just couldn't get on with this product.

    1. I've found a couple of others which I've been liking more so it's not too bad, just a waste of £7.99! xx

  2. Shame it didn't work out for you, I read a review of this the other day where someone loved it - makes me want to try it out too! Gorgeous photos though as always :)

    1. A lot of people love this foundation so maybe you should give it a go, it just wasn't what I was looking for! Thank you :) xx

  3. I love this in the summer and I agree with the shade, it's fabulous to see a pale shale on the high street makeup market, although Rimmel don't have this shade in any of their other foundation formulas which is sad!

    1. I know, it's so disappointing that they don't offer it for the wake me up foundation, I want to try it but there isn't a good colour match for me! xx

  4. Oh no I was just saying on another blog I'm torn between this and Wake Me Up but after reading this I think I'm going to write this one off, it doesn't sound great. Thanks for the honest review x

  5. I hope you had fun watching Frozen, I really want to see it haha! It's a shame you didn't get on with this foundation. I agree, it's more light coverage than medium. You should try their Wake Me Up foundation, maybe that'll work better for you :) ♥

    1. Thank you :) Frozen is really good, I'd definitely reccomend going to see it! Ooh I've been wanting to try the wake me up foundation for ages but they don't have a good colour match for me! xx

  6. i always found this foundation thoroughly medium coverage, maybe it was the way you applied it? it is very streaky on my skin though because its not really a foundation for oily skin (like mine) so you must've been misinformed! or maybe they were trolling you.

    1. I know a lot of people who love this foundation, but it just didn't work for me :( I have combination skin so my skin gets oily throughout the day but it was streaky when I first applied it. I made sure that I tried applying it different ways and I just can't make it work for me, oh well - you win some you lose some! xx

  7. A shame that the foundation didn't work for you, I hope you find something that does work! The Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation is good but the colour range isn't as good, the lightest colour is too dark for me.

  8. What a shame it didn't work for you - I love this foundation but my skin is more dry rather than oily so that might be why. xx

  9. It's too bad this didn't work out for you. I haven't tried Rimmel base products before because I find that the Revlon Colorstay works great for me.

  10. I hate when you can't find your favorite foundation. It sounded lovely at first but I hope you find the perfect one.

  11. I had heard so much about this foundation that I had planned to buy it. Now I probably won't. Thank you for the warning.

  12. Such a shame you didn't like this, I have this and gives me a lovely medium coverage. You could try letting the first layer set for 10 minutes and then apply another layer :)

  13. It's such a shame when you buy a new foundation and it just doesn't work for you. My boyfriend bought me one of these for Christmas last year (as in 2012!) but I haven't even tried it, oops. I may have to find it out and give it a try and if I don't like it I'll probably just throw it out x

  14. I have this foundation as well and love it for every day wear! The packaging here in the US doesnt have a pump, but I still make it work!

  15. What a shame that you didn't like it, I've actually just got the same foundation and posted a review and I really like it! Mainly because of the shade! It's so difficult to find shades this light in the drugstore isn't it! The best I've found is Revlon's Colourstay for oily/combination in the shade Ivory! xx
