Much like the concealer, these foundations are very dark for us paler skinned ladies! Light to medium coverage but didn't cover any redness on my skin. I felt it was oily and sat on my skin. It did give a nice glow to my skin but from my experience, it didn't ever stay perfect all day long. Was disappointed as I had heard great reviews on this product!

I can't get this foundation to work for me. Even if I succeed in making it look not cakey, it only lasts a few hours. I understand that they were going for the dewy look - which I love - but it just ends up looking oily. I have the lightest shade - 010 light porcelain, as I have very fair skin.. but I still need to have abit of tan for it to not be too yellow. My advice would be to just buy the Rimmel Match Perfection instead. A much better foundation overall.

I think this is the one Rimmel product that I don't have any complaints regarding the packaging. I love that it has a pump. Coverage is medium, and leaves your skin looking really healthy. Finish is dewy so if you're not a fan of that finish, steer clear of this. This actually didn't make me oily, which says a lot considering I'm an oily skin type to begin with. Didn't break me out, which is a good sign. However the colours run a little dark. For example in maybelline fit me, I use 210 which is in the medium range. In this, I use the second lightest shade which is "true ivory". So these run a little dark, so to all my pale sisters out there I don't know if you'll find a match. If you do, try it.

One of my favourite foundations, Really affordable and packaging comes with a pump which is always handy! lasts on my skin around 3 hours (you get what you pay for) however it does cover my skin nicely and gives me a nice finishing look.

This is my go-to summer foundation!! If you like a dewy look without looking like an oily chip pan, this is perfect. Don't be put off by the fine glitters, it hardly notices on your skin and I feel my skin looks super healthy when I wear this. I am an Nw20 and true ivory is my match.

This foundation is good, feels light and stays on for a long time. Only con is sometimes it makes me look too dewy but I am very pale toned anyway.

NZ$23 on sale which isn't too bad for a foundation in NZ. he packaging is nice, a glass bottle with bright orange lid. The colour match was perfect for me. I am I guess a bit in between pink and yellow, I usually go for more yellow toned foundations, and I have read other reviews stating it runs pink, but I don't see it. To me it is very neutral. It has a slight shimmer/sheen that you can especially see when looking at it through the bottle, but once on the face it just gives a nice dewy finish. It also smells amazing! It's not the longest lasting foundation I've tried, but it stays a reasonable amount of time. And the coverage was a good medium. Unfortunately I won't repurchase because this made me break out :(

I like this foundation!!
I have the shade 010 Light porcelain (the lightest shade available, bought online). Now I'm am a pale person... really pale and this foundation is the closest match i have ever found! and for that reason I like it.

It's light to medium coverage (nothing a little concealer can't handle) on me and it last for a decent amount off time on me. All in all it's my go to foundation when I don't have any active breakouts and so far it works out for me.

I will differently repurchase this foundation again when I run out (if I can find it online, because the lightest shade available in Denmark is 100 Ivory and that's to dark/pink on me)

I really do love this foundation, very nice consistency, does have a glowing effect to it if you like that. When I use a brush or beauty blender either one works great when applying this foundation. I just love the finish of this foundation on my skin! For a drugstore foundation this is one of my go-to products. Does last a long time on my skin. I do use a transparent pressed power on top and moisturise beforehand and prime my T-zone and by doing this it lasts so long on my skin. I would class this as med-full coverage. Only problem I find is that the colour range is very limited. I have to mix colours in order to get my perfect colour which is such a pain when I am in a rush.
