Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation - £4.99
I bought this foundation on a whim when I saw it was on sale in Tesco a few weeks ago, and to be honest after I asked myself if I'd actually use it. I have a love-hate relationship with foundations of all types and colours, just for the pure fact that I'm never pleased. My skin tone changes so much because I tend to tan quite easily and quickly, so virtually all of my foundations are different colours. I've also developed a love for high coverage foundations, which to be honest a lot of mine aren't, so I think I just feel that nothing compares to what I want. It sounds silly I know. Anyway, I decided I may as well try it seeing as I saved about £3 (I love a good bargain!)
I used Rimmel Wake Me Up a lot in the summer and absolutely loved it, so I'm already sold on Rimmel foundations as being good products. At the time I was still quite tanned so I bought it in 'Soft Beige' which is number 200 on the Rimmel chart. As I bought it from Tesco I didn't really have chance to try it on my face, so did the most awful thing EVER and tested it on my hand... all you bloggers should shoot me now! I always get told that its the worst thing to do ever ever and that you should never test like this, but I didn't really feel like removing my face in Tesco just for a £5 foundation. I took the risk and actually, when I got home I found it suited very well.
The foundation itself is a really nice, creamy texture and it doesn't feel like you've got too much on when its on your skin. I like to feel like I have something covering my face, but not so much that I feel caked in make-up. It blends really well and the colour was really good for me at the time (my tan has suddenly now faded/lack of faking it.) Admittedly when I wear it now I do look a little dark, but I think its definitely going to be my 'tan foundation.' The coverage is actually really good and I was overall very impressed. It felt quite nice against my skin and this may sound a bit weird, but it felt like my skin could breathe underneath the foundation. Overall I'm really impressed and actually quite tempted to buy it in a lighter shade for winter.
Have you tried Rimmel Match Perfection before? What are your thoughts?
