I've purchased this foundation a few times. It is a great full coverage foundation, not too orangey and sits well on the skin. I have try skin and the foundation does not flake. For the price and performance it is a great drugstore buy. Does not wear off and look patchy after time. I use with a primer and pressed powder. I have a few higher end foundations that I enjoy wearing but for everyday use this is perfect and I will continue to buy.
I think this foundation would suit most skin types. My skin tends to never make up it's mind- oily nose, dry patches in most places plus acne breakouts and scarring on my forehead. This doesn't cover /that/ well, depending on what you use to apply it, but it's definitely buildable (though I tend to not put layers of product on my face regardless of how many blemishes I've got). It lasts a long time though! The longest time I wore it for was around 16 hours, and I just had to powder once! (damn oily nose..) The texture is lovely, and it looks better on your skin after some time cause when I first apply it it tends to settle into fine lines a bit..but then later on it all clears up! The finish is lovely and natural, not shiny at all but still dewey enough, and not too matte either (although you can powder if that's the finish you want). Doesn't stick to dry patches!!! Got it on sale at priceline in Australia for around $10 so that's pretty good! I'm not completely in love with it but it's definitely one of the best drugstore foundations.
has nice medium coverge that looks natural and long lasting. very inexpensive and nice pale shade range. only problem is the packaging which i find is too tall and doesnt sit in my drawers upright so they have to be stored sideways. but i would still repurchase as it is a very good foundation.
Because I am so pale I find it really hard to match a foundation to my skin without looking like a ghost. However this foundation matched my skin tone perfectly whilst giving me a bit of colour too! The only reason I didn't give this product full marks is because you need to apply a powder foundation afterwards as it makes the skin look VERY oily and shiny (although this may differ to other people).
I really like this foundation but worry about all the silicones. I'm oily and acne prone and tend not to do well with silicones. Since using this foundation I've been maintaining my acne treatments and have found no significant problems with this foundation. I do however see small bumps here and there but nothing that is not manageable.
This makeup blends amazingly. It does look very natural on the skin and has a nice subtle sheen. I do not find that it looks greasy although i still have to blot with paper after a couple of hours. This is normal for me, however. I also find that it has a pretty good coverage - definitely light to medium. But because of the high amount of silicones in it I'm afraid to really test it and therefore opt for a light coverage. It still does a good job camouflaging my scars.
The colors are workable since I'm a darker complexion but opted to purchase the Light Nude color. Because the foundation sinks into the skin so well the colors really blend into your natural tone. It's not a *perfect* match for me (nothing ever is) but it doesn't look fake sitting on the skin.
Overall this is a nice foundation and I would purchase again.
Shade: 101 Classic Ivory. Considering this is the second foundation I have used, I would gladly say this is the best one that I've used. The packaging is really classy and the interior of the lid has only got a little bit of mess in (my fault after I was late leaving for work). The formula is runny, so I would encourage painting your face a block at a time, it's deceiving when dry as it has a dewy finish which is why I go over with stay matte powder on top. The shade variety is not expansive and despite the light shade name it is a perfect match on my skin which is a light tan due to my heritage. All in all I would but this again, it is hydrating and long lasting - zero breakouts too!
I have had this foundation for atleast over a year now but I had never worn it before now. I've been using it recently but i have to say that honestly its not great. its extremely runny and hard to control when it comes out of the pump. It lacks in a range of skin colours and only lasts about an hour without rubbing off.
For about 2 years I had been using the Rimmel London 25 hour foundation, I was in love with it and didn't bother with trying out any other foundation because I liked that one so much. Anyhow, the other day my mum went to the shop and whilst she was there I asked her to pick me up some new foundation and she came back with this, the match perfection foundation in 010 light porcelain (I am very pale). I've got to say I love it! In comparison to the 25 hour foundation this one had a little less coverage which is fine with me because my skin is very clear. It applies a lot lighter on my skin and makes me feel very fresh. Love it, trust it :)
Definitely one of the worst foundations I've used. It's extremely runny. It's hard to blend and doesn't last for more than an hour. The match perfection concealer is another story though. It's great for blemishes, but not under the eyes unless you use very little to none.
Eeks!!! Worst foundation I've ever used!!!
The color is fine, it blends out nicely and really looks incredibly natural on my skin...but, and it's a BIG but...it made me break out like nobody's business!!! :(
I put it on before work, and by 10 I could see bumps in several places...Just just lil white-heads popping up, but biggish red zits. I was shocked.
I started back on my acne regime...which I keep around just for skin emergencies since normally I'm very dry and never break out. And after a 2 days of treatments and wearing my usual bb cream, my skin was brand new.
Being a glutton for punishment, I tried the Rimmel foundation again and had the same results...big zits popping up all over. At that point, it didn't even go into my holocost survival collection--instead right into the trash it went.
If you read the ingredients, it's silicones of all shapes and sizes in there. That's what gives it it's blendability and ability to make skin look flawless and not emphasize wrinkles or pores--but it's also totally evil if you are even remotely sensitive to silicones.
I think you'll have an either love or hate relationship with this foundation. If you know you're ok with silicones, this could be heaven-sent for you--Your skin will literally look airbrushed flawless without looking like you have a hint of makeup on.
But if you have any issues with your skin, or you're like me and know you can't take the silicones--don't even bother with this...
