I LOVE this! BUT... it may not be what you think it is. It does NOT provide that much coverage or matte-ness. HOWEVER, i use this more as a tinted moisturizer and it is beautiful. I wear it in NUDE color and it works wonders on my olive/yellow-based skin. I usually wear Mac C-35 or Stila in 40 watts.
So.... i just wear a dab of this to even out my skin tone (and it makes my pores look tiny!) and then i brush a little MAC powder over it.
I love it!
The biggest problem i have with other foundations is that they are too pinkish or beigy. But this is perfect with just the right amount of yellow. worth a try for the price. get two different colors so u can try them out!
Also, it did not break out my sensitive skin, and i did wear moisturizer underneath to help it blend easily.
:( I really regret not checking this product review prior to buying it.To those who gave it high lippies could you please tell me how am I suppose to use this? Here is the problem, when I try to blend this, I ended up wiping this off instead (it balls up and gone ) , I tried to pat it, but it doesn't work either .
I just bought my second tube of this foundation, so I'm obviously pleased with the results of using it. At first, I found it running and didn't like how it glided over my face, but then I quickly saw (within seconds) how it blended in perfectly with my own skin, and did indeed mattify it. The back of the tube boasts highly adjustable coverage, which I'll agree to- I usually apply three layers over my cheeks and dot the concealer over that. I wear my make-up for twelve hours most days, and the foundation goes for most of that, though it claims to last effectively for half that time. Rimmel is cheap and good quality, depending on the product.
I like this foundation! It has become one of my regular foundations that I use now. It took me a while to find it in my shade (Porcelain), but I'm glad I kept looking! This foundation keeps my skin fairly matte and pretty, it's long-lasting and has a nice, faint floral/clean scent.
This has a bit of a yellow tint to it. It doesn't go on very well and it doesn't give me a medium coverage. It is decent for the price, but I don't like it that much.
Hated this stuff. I got it cuz I like the matte look. But it looks really orangy, and just...icky. Not good.
I thought I's try this- I prefer Loreal Ideal Balance better. I do prefer the Rimmel packaging- you can get all of the product out and don't have to worry about smashing a bottle on your tiles. It gies on smooth for me, blends well, covers well. I can't put my finger on why I don't love it.
It was $19.95AU so it wasn't really that cheap.
This is the DEVIL. I was completely fooled into purchasing it, but it felt like I was spreading mineral oil over my face. And guess what? I was! It's listed on the back as an ingredient. So much for "matte, oil-free coverage."
Yuck!! Made my face feel like I had a layer of grease over it, didn't look so shiny, but felt terrible. Also seemed to accentuate the flaws I was trying to conceal. Got a nearly new tube up for swap if you want it. ;)
this wouldn't really blend in to my skin, and it emphasized any dry areas. no good.
