Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation

We all hear the commercials and propaganda every time a new foundation is released about it having the best technology, and giving us the perfect, flawless complexion we desire. The hot button of the moment is foundation that can adapt to blend with your own skin tone. It sounds a little “magical” but beauty brands have been competing for decades to create the most realistic, naturally blending foundation and I think every year we get a little bit closer …. or in the case of Rimmel’s new and improved Match Perfection Foundation, could the competition be over? 

My Review

  • The slender glass bottle is fitted with an easy-to-use pump. The finger press is ergonomically shaped and requires minimal effort to dispense the perfect amount of foundation.
  • A creamy texture makes application easy with sponge, brush or fingers.
  • There is a subtle fresh scent, slightly masculine but with a touch of floral.
  • It almost instantaneously improves the complexion during application, giving a sheer coverage but once you leave it to dry the coverage deepens a little more. Natural luminosity from my skin still came through and it didn’t completely cover the darker beauty spots (which I like). It covers all my faint annoying freckles and gives my skin one unified colour, rather than the naturally blotchy mess it is currently.
  • It really does add more radiance to my skin and it kind of looks as if I am wearing invisible illuminator.
  • This foundation lasts all day on my skin even when I forget to use a primer. During the extremely hot days on summer it did lose a bit of coverage from sweat but it held up remarkably well for a non-waterproof formula.
