Rimmel Match Perfection beauty blog review

Rimmel have made some of my very favourite affordable foundations. Their Lasting Finish Nude which I reviewed here not too long ago would probably make it into my top five favourite ever foundations, so yes I’m a big fan 🙂

So when they release a new on odds are I’ll pick it up and give it a go.

Rimmel Match Perfection is the newest kid on the foundation shelf.

Rimmel Match Perfection review

I have the first Rimmel Match Perfection and to be honest I can’t really tell much difference between the two of them.

The older version has spf of 18, the newer one has spf of 20. They’re both medium coverage and give the skin a satin finish.

The newer Rimmel Match Perfection claims to blur pores, I don’t really see it doing that to my skin and I have pores  a plenty. It also claims to cover dark circles too, can’t really say it does that either, you would definitely need a separate concealer, unless you have great skin of course.

However, I do think it’s a really nice foundation, just not if you particularly oily like myself.

It goes onto my skin nicely. I use a buffing brush to apply it. That tends to be my weapon of choice for foundation because I can use the dense brush to really buff the product in. This particular brush is from a set I bought off ebay for really cheap and I have to say I am really enjoying them. I have the shade 100 Ivory.

As I said it has a lovely satin finish, and it does claim to be a hydrating foundation, so I don’t expect it be as long lasting as a foundation made for oilier skin. I don’t always like a complete matte finish to my skin though so I do like to give some of the more hydrating foundations a try in hopes they don’t oxidise on me.

Here is my skin with nothing on it:

Then here’s my face with all my makeup finished and the foundation powdered into place. I really like the finish.

After about three hours of wear, this is what my skin looks like:

beautynook irish beauty blogI’m a bit of a shiny mess!  I don’t mind having to powder my nose after a few hours of wear, but with this I would have to powder my whole face after a couple of hours, not really practical.Ah well. I’m sure this will be a lovely foundation on you drier folk out there, but for me it’s not meant to be 🙁

You can pick up the Rimmel Match Perfection in Boots or any place that stocks Rimmel and it will set you back €9.99.

Have you tried it? Let me know how it fares on your skin 🙂

    Thanks for the review. I had wondered about trying this and am now glad I didn’t buy as I have the same skin type!

    I tried it but found it didn’t work well on my skin, I have oily and I suffer from acne a lot as well. I got lacura foundation bb cream from aldi last week and it is really good!! It looks and feels fresh!! They were sold out really fast!! sometimes use a bit of urban decay naked foundation in light over it and use Vichy transuluslant powder to keep in place and it works well. I like ester Lauder double wear aswell and I find the night serum has done wonders for my skin and the masks are pretty good too.
