Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation

The Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation was getting a lot of love in the blogosphere recently  As I had just run out of my Rimmel 9 in 1 BB Cream, I was in the market for a new foundation so I thought I’d give it a go!  I’ve really liked Rimmel face bases in the past (except the much raved about Wake Me Up! which I’ve managed not to try yet).  The one thing I was really glad to hear was that the shade rage goes super light, which is music to this pale gal’s ears.

2014-02-21 11.57.55I got the shade 010 Light Porcelain and I believe this is the lightest shade in the range.  Being accustomed to grabbed the lightest shade, when I got home I wondered if this was almost too light.  But here are the bare skin and with foundation pics.

What your favorite Rimmel Foundation?  Have you tried Match Perfection yet?

  1. I’ve never tried any foundations from Rimmel but the more and more I hear about them the more I want to try them out! This looks beautiful on your skin, even if it’s a bit sheer for you.

    • Thank you! I was kind of late on the band wagon with trying their foundations, I tried the Match Perfection because of the lighter shades. I love their 9 in 1 BB cream as well! Definitely worth checking out! x
