Match Perfection Cream Gel Foundation, Classic Beige - £6.99
Whilst browsing through photos on Instagram I found myself on a friend of a friends page who I'd always noticed had beautiful skin. In one of her photos she had shown an empty jar of the Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation, raved about it and underneath a few others had commented on how they loved it too. Needless to say the next time I was in town I popped in to Superdrug and picked it up in the shade 'Classic Beige'. I'm not a huge fan of the packaging but it has a secure screw top and a little stopper so I'm pretty happy popping this in my handbag if needed.
This foundation claims to adapt to your skin tone and texture for a natural finish and I agree for the most part. The shade 'Classic Beige' does have a slight pink undertone which isn't what I'd normally opt for but once I'd let the foundation set I couldn't notice it anymore. The consistency and texture of this is slightly bizarre as it's not quite as thick as I'd imagined and feels a bit wet as it's being applied but this does mean blending is made easy as it just glides over the skin. The finish isn't what I'd describe as matte or dewy it just looks very natural and radiant.
My skin tends to get quite oily so I usually like to powder and I found this to last on my skin a good 5 hours before I had to blot and touch up, which I have to do with most foundations. The coverage is quite light but buildable to cover redness, freckles and then you can just top up problem areas with a concealer.
If your sensitive to fragrance then this foundation is quite potent but I don't tend to notice the scent after application. I couldn't quite put my finger on what the smell of the product was but it seems to be in all of the Rimmel foundations and it's quite a fresh, slightly flowery scent.
To sum up; I really do like this foundation, it's not the most long lasting on my oily skin but it has a lovely finish and it's pretty cheap at just £6.99 - my only issue being the limited shade ranges as I could only find five colours in my local Superdrug.
