Product of the Week - Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation

This weeks PotW has been featured on so many blogs and videos that I felt I had to give it a try! It's the gorgeous Rimmel Match Perfection Light Perfecting Radiance Foundation (£6.99) in shade 100 Ivory.

This is a great day to day foundation. I've replaced using my Benefit Hello Flawless with this. It's light/medium coverage means that you don't end up feeling "cakey" like some cheaper foundations can do. It's going to be my go to foundation when the sun finally rears it's face because it's got SPF 18 in it and with skin like mine I need all the protection I can get when it comes to the sun. 

I think this is definitely a great foundation if you're going to an all day thing like a wedding, races, christenings things like that because it's lasting power is incredible. It really does last the test of time and because it has this thing called "Smart-tone" technology so it's great if you have patchy/combination skin tones. 

It's also a pump foundation which means you aren't going to waste lots of product. I think one good pump and a little half pump is perfect for a full face. I've been using my new best friend, the stippling brush, to get a perfect foundation look. I would go as big headed to say that this foundation makes my skin look pretty flawless!

It's a lot like finding a bra with a perfect fit that's well in budget. It fits your (facial) curves perfectly, it's not too bulky and it's just right, just for you. Now I felt I had to disprove this when I seen the raves about it, I am very skeptical and I honestly thought "Nah, bet it's not that good. It will never replace my more expensive stuff" and it has.

  1. I've heard so many great things about this product, I think I'm going to have to add it to my basket in Boots. If the only con is that it;s too good, then I really need this in my collection!

  2. This looks great on you! I tried this foundation and but it was too oily for me so I gave it to my best friend.
