I've been on the hunt for the perfect foundation for what seems like an eternity. I've tried multiple brands, prices and formulas but none have seemed to have that wow factor. With funds being extremely tight this month, due to multiple bills landing on the doorstep, I took to the recent Boots 3 for 2 offer where I picked up this little number - the Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation in Ivory for £6.99.
So far, I've been quite impressed with this, I've been using it for just over two weeks now and it's providing me with just the right amount of coverage for this lovely spring time weather we have been having. When dispensed from the pump (is it weird that I actually love having a pump that comes with my foundation? After so many now don't come with one - why?!) it has a lovely consistency. It glides across your face, covering all the right areas without being too cakey. The only little niggle I have with it, is that it likes to bind itself to my eyebrows so cue some strategic removal with make up wipes!
It applies really well with the fingertips and with my RT brushes and blends really nicely to give good even coverage. As a glasses wearer I also find that this doesn't seem to gather around the little grippy bits on my nose!
I picked this up in the shade Ivory, which I think is the lightest shade in the range as I'm pretty pale and I think it's perfect for my skin tone.
Also, weirdly I have to mention the smell of the foundation, some people might be put off by it but I actually really like it, it's hard to describe it so I would recommend taking a whiff of it next time you're at the Rimmel stand!
I'm pretty gutted I didn't pick up another one of these when they were on the 3 for 2 offer but at £6.99 it doesn't exactly break the bank - presently I am one satisfied customer!
Have you tried this foundation? What do you think?
