REVIEW: Match Perfection Foundation & Concealer

Here's a Rimmel goodie that you may have spotted at the drugstore but wasn't sure what to make of another "skin matching" foundation...

I certainly agree that the market has been turning to this selling point recently, with the release of Maybelline's FIT-ME foundation and Rimmels Match Perfection coming out simultaneously.

Rimmel Match Perfection

is what I'm here to talk about today.

Here's the word from Rimmel:

RIMMEL Match Perfection Swatches

Now that you've hear what Rimmel's my review
[Play and enjoy!]

A little before/after swatch as always.
As you can see the coverage is really just about light/medium.

Rimmel Match Perfection [before/after]

In summary....FOUNDATION

  • Great concept, great warm based foundation range
  • Does "adapt" somewhat to skintone after application
  • Very blendable and CAN look incredibly glowy and pretty on the skin
  • Not longwearing at all, stains/rubs onto clothing easily
  • Doesn't set well even with powder
  • Falls into fine lines
  • (Shades available depends on which country you live in and which store you local drugstore did not have 15 shades)

In summary....CONCEALER
  • Good brightening (not concealing as much under eyes)
  • Thicker consistency fabulous for around the nose and around the mouth
  • Decent staying power, especially if set with powder
  • Shades are good in tone even though it does run light
  • (Shades available depends on which country you live in and which store you visit. The stores I visited only had 3 shades.)


Hope you enjoyed!
