Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation


I feel the need to apologise for the photos, it pains me to put on photos of my scantily clad face, spots and all! I guess it just illustrates the coverage of the foundation. One thing that completely surprised me was the 'glittery' element to the foundation. Unlike the 'Wake Me Up' it's completely untraceable in the bottle yet because very apparent once blended. You can notice the glitter reflects on the second photo, next to where the focus is, the particles are reflecting the flash. You'll notice they are quite sparse but are pretty large. I find it doesn't transfer to my skin much at all, it's mainly noticeable underneath the eyes. This foundation is very 'glowy' and gives a healthy look, which I like, it's a change from my usual super matte finish. It does feel a little 'tacky' on the chin straight after I apply it, to which I feel the need to cover it in powders to stop it from irritating me any further. Other than that, it settles in to the skin nicely and doesn't highlight any enlarged pores ect. It applies nicely with both fingers and brush, I typically use the Real Techniques Buffing Brush concentrating more on blending the t-zone. Obviously longevity is different for all people. On me, the foundation is definitely there all day, but the coverage reduces massively after around 5 hours. I don't tend to use primer every day for school (Smashbox is expensive for a teenager okay?!) but when used with the Photo Flawless Light it lasts all day or night without a hitch.


  1. Wow, your skin looks flawless!!

  2. First of all, you do not have any spots. Your skin is beautiful, not scantily clad. Anywho, thanks for the review. I am looking for high coverage foundation, so I will have to pass on this one.
