I haven’t been a huge fan of foundation, for the past year or so. Now that my skin’s finally cleared up (more on that soon, promise!), I found myself being bothered by the heavy coverage I used to love. I bounced around some BB and CC Creams (reviews here), but never found anything I loved. Then, recently, I started reading about Rimmel’s ‘Match Perfection’ on a
few blogs, all of whom raved about its light, even coverage, and I knew
I had to try it out.

I was actually really pleasantly surprised with the range of shades available when I headed to my local Boots, and eventually settled on Ivory (#100), which turned out to be the perfect shade. My only real annoyance (and it’s a minor one), is the pump on the bottle; it dispenses just a little more foundation than I actually need, so I’ve taken to taking the top off and just pouring a little onto the back of my hand.

The formula of the foundation itself is pretty impressive, too; it’s very light coverage, and you will still need concealer, if you have dark circles of imperfections, but the finish itself is absolutely lovely. It really evens out my skin tone without being too obvious, and although it’s not marketed as a ‘matte finish’ (my preferred type of base), with just a little face powder, it manages to stay shine-free all day. What more could you ask for?

The Rimmel Match Perfection foundation is available for £6.99, but is currently on offer for 2 for £10 in Boots stores, or on their website, here.
