Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation | Review

Rimmel Math Perfection Foundation

I’m not a huge liquid foundation person, as any foundation I ever try I can see and it makes me look cakey and just in general I don’t love them.

I got this because I really like the Match Perfection concealer for under the eyes. So I figured I’d try this one out too.

There is a decent shade range and I got mine in 103 True Ivory. I really like that there is SPF 20 in it as I always forget to put sunscreen on my face. However it does have a slightly flashback in photos as any foundation with SPF would. I also really like that it comes with a pump.

From one pump you get a massive amount! I definitely don’t use a whole pump, I’d even say I’m not even sure if I use half a pump for my whole face! I blend it out with my beauty blender and I have to say if you use a small amount and blend it well, you still get a decent coverage! Mainly I’d wear this at nights or when going to a festival for example. And I can’t give you an exact number of hours but on my dry skin it lasts pretty well.

RimmeSwatch Match Perfection Foundation

In terms of it claiming to have a pore blurring effect, I can’t vouch too much as I use a pore minimising primer. However it definitely doesn’t make my pores any larger or define them. I find it doesn’t crease or stick to any of my dry patches and doesn’t look cakey or feel sticky/heavy.

It has a slight scent, kind of smells like shampoo to me, but the scent doesn’t linger at all.

I think overall I like it as it has the hydration factor in it which makes it not look ridiculously dry/cakey. I think if you’re looking for a hydrating, natural foundation (which you can build up if you want) then you should give this a go!

What’s your favourite foundation?

    The amount that comes with one pump is crazy! I really loved this foundation, but I struggled with the shade range – I’m uber pale. Thanks for the thorough review!

      Ahhh that sucks!!! Silly brands not making lots of selections!!! But yeah, soooo much comes out! xx

    I haven’t worn foundation in over a year because I fell in love with BB Cream, so I wear Cover Girl BB cream which has a light tint in it. I love it! Thanks for visiting my blog recently. Hope you come back and visit again soon. :))

    I quite like Rimmel products – I find they’re usually really good value for money πŸ™‚ x

      Yesss I defintiely agree! xx

    • June 18, 2017 / 8:16 pm

      Fair enough, everyone likes different ones! I have the True Match as well and it’s definitely a bit more coverage!:) xx

    I just recently entered into the Rimmel world so it’s all new to me, but I’ll check out their foundations too and hopefully I’ll find something πŸ™‚ As I have oily skin, I’m not sure this would be a good foundation

    I used to love this foundation, great for pale skin and gives skin a lovely natural glow! I really need to repurchase this foundation as I haven’t bought one since my last one ran out! Lately I’ve been using Garnier BB cream which is my fave at the moment!

    I actually haven’t had much experience wearing drugstore foundations just cause I have super sensitive skin, but I use Giorgio Armani luminous Silk Foundation and really love that it doesn’t make my makeup look cakey.

    I had this foundation a few years ago but it wasn’t enough coverage for me! I used to really like their Lasting Finish foundation though!

    I do believe I’ve tried one of Rimmel foundations in the past; I think it was the Wake Me Up foundation but I haven’t tried this one. I do like the hydration factor in this and it sounds like a decent foundation overall. xx

      Yeah it leaves the skin looking awesome! xx

    I’m also not a massive fan of foundation, use to wear them but found them breaking me out and making me look very cakey. I’ve tried long time ago one rimmel foundation and I know that there formulations are very good, glad that you find one that suits you.


    • SofiaaDot
      June 5, 2017 / 4:06 pm

      Yeah that’s what I find with most as well but this one is quite nice! xx

    I currently use another Rimmel foundation.
    Love the consistency of the product and the brand over all.

    Great thorough review.

    I used to use rimmel before swapping to bareMinerals and Mac, I think it’s a great brand, really affordable and I would love to try this one when I next need a foundation.

      Yeah it’s super nice hey!!! I need to try some more expensive brands foundations for sure xx

  15. June 2, 2017 / 11:50 pm

    I have not tried this but I adore Rimmel Wake Me Up and 25 Hours Lasting foundations! I have never tried Rimmel’s concealer but Wake Me Up and True Match concealers have been in my list since forever.

      June 5, 2017 / 3:51 pm

      I love the Wake Me Up Concealer and I did try the foundation out agesss ago as well!!! Definitely try both of them, they are awesome! xx

  16. June 2, 2017 / 9:38 pm

    I struggle so much trying to find the perfect foundation. I always steer away from high street brands like Rimmel and go for pricier ones like Chanel, Tom Ford, Clinique… but this one looks quite moisturising actually! Would love to see what it’s like on your face with the primer? Cool blog too!

      Yeah I always worry about spending too much of the more expensive ones that I might not use/like πŸ˜› Thanks! xx

  17. June 2, 2017 / 8:00 pm

    I’m just like you, I really struggle to love liquid foundations, mostly because they don’t last very long on my skin, but this one does, so I’m really intrigued by it now! I’m also glad to hear that you love the concealer from the same range, it’s been on my wish list for at least a year now!


    • SofiaaDot

      The concealer is amazing!!! And if you have dry skin like me then yeah definitely worth trying out as I find it lasts fine πŸ™‚ xx
