I personally dislike this foundation just because it doesn't work for my skin type. I have oily skin that can have dry patches. I do have acne, so I wanted something to help cover it. I love most of the other Rimmel products, but not this one. The texture was way to greasy for me, and it was difficult to get out of the bottle (no pump). It does not cover anything on my face, it just clings to all the acne bumps and highlights them even more. It doesn't last long, and just melts off your face. I view it as more of a tinted sunscreen! I would only suggest this product to people with normal skin and no acne. It just didn't work for me.
I'm going to start by saying I bought this from the store yesterday and I've already concluded that this is absolutely my holy grail foundation.
I've never actually had a HG foundation and I've never been as sure about any foundation as I have about this one... Usually a foundation is really nice but there's that "as long as"... You know, as long as I wear powder over the top, or as long as I wear primer underneath, or as long as I really blend it into my neck... But with this foundation there's none of that.
I've never really ventured into high end foundations, so my two favourites before now are Revlon Colourstay and Rimmel Wake Me Up. I like the coverage of the Revlon one, but my biggest qualm with it is how unpleasant it feels on my skin and, while the right shade, its weirdly pinkish colour. I adore the Wake Me Up foundation, but the shimmer in it can end up looking quite awful in certain lights, and the lightest colour is a little too dark for my pale skin.
The Match Perfection, though, has the gorgeous dewy finish of the Wake Me Up and the coverage of the Colourstay. I accidentally pumped too much out of the bottle, so I just kept applying it to see how buildable it is and it absolutely is! It has a sheer coverage with one layer but you can absolutely build it up to full coverage and it still feels really light and doesn't look cakey in the slightest.
I bought the 100 Ivory and the colour and shade is perfect. I'm pale with freckles and my skin is normal if not a little dry.
I actually cannot see myself loving any foundation as much as I love this one. The pump is great, the price is great...The only qualm I have is that I didn't try it sooner. Rimmel I love you!!
I should probably start by saying that I started using foundation only recently and the first(and only) I bought was mac. I got a little too light for my nc40,and wasn't willing to spend another $30 on a bottle, so I ran out and got this in the shade 'sand'. Its not too pink,not too yellow. It looked like it would match,and I figured I could add a few drops of the darker color if I needed to.
Best decision ever! Way better than the mac foundations in terms of color and consistency and it doesn't break me out. It isn't as good as mac as far as coverage goes, but i have no acne issues or scars so I just dab on concealer under the eyes and around the mouth and I'm good to go. Definitely set with a powder though. Once I did that I didnt notice any significant shine,and it stayed put all day. i got it on sale so that was an added bonus.
I've tried a lot of foundations as I've got the most difficult of skin types very pale but also oily and breakout prone. Most foundations targeted for my skin type don't tend to have the shades I want and I end up with an orange cast on my face. This foundation whilst not targeted to oily skin has done a very good job of not making my face overly oily. The palest shade matches my skin really well. It feels nice on my skin with just the right amount of coverage and also doesn't oxidize about 10 shades darker unlike most other ones I've tried.
I have this foundation in light porcelain which is a fantastic colour for my skin tone. It gives great coverage, makes my skin look flawless and doesn't break me out in spots however it only lasts a few hours. I put in on in the morning, dust some stay matte powder over it and by lunch time it has gone.
Overall, a great foundation that unfortunately requires touch ups by lunch time. I would purchase this again though because I think it is a very good budget friendly foundation.
Although this product was well priced for the size and it covered well, after one use I broke out fairly bad. I tried it again after my face cleared up and the same thing happened. I did not like this product which I found disappointing because I usually love Rimmel products.
I bought this after watching Tanya Burr's video on YouTube. I had been on the hunt for the perfect drugstore foundation and I found one that I absolutely love. The color goes perfectly with my skin and it blends so perfectly especially with the Real Techniques expert face brush. It does have a dewy finish but it goes perfectly with the Stay Matte powder. I absolutely loved this foundation and recommend it to everyone!
Orange city! Yikes! Immediate oxidation. Maybe I'll keep it around in summer. I tried a different type of Rimmel foundation at my mom's house, and she's darker than I am. It worked great! I might just have to switch it out without her knowing...;)
Then I read the glowing reviews of this stuff, so I purchased it hoping to find my "Match Perfection". I bought nude, but it should have been called "oompaloompa". I just can't do orange with platinum blonde in the winter. On a positive note it's not heavy... I have dry skin and was hoping for the dewy finish with medium coverage.
Ok so I recently purchased this foundation because Tanya Burr on youtube mentioned it in her daily makeup routine. So I thought id give it a try and man im glad I did!! i love it! the shade i bought it in is Ivory, which i believe is the lightest shade possible. With Rimmel their products tend to run too dark for me. So the shade matches my skin tone perfectly and doesnt oxidize at all! The finish is a very natural and somewhat dewy finish so it makes my skin have this gorgeous natural glow to it. The lasting power is good! ive had it on since 9 this morning and it still looks like i just applied it and hasnt transferred or anything. I wouldnt recommend this to those with oily skin since it does have a dewiness to it. but if you have dry/combination skin this is a great foundation! i deff recommend it!
I love this foundation. It's a bit hard sometimes to find foundations that are light enough for me but this is literally the perfect colour for me in light porcelain. My only issue with it is that it tends to have a very dewy finish, but this is easily fixed with some setting powder.
Overall, this is my favourite foundation and I will continue to use it.
