Rimmel Match Perfection ♥

When it comes to make up, i buy foundation and concealers the most often as i wear them pretty much everyday. I'm always on the lookout to try one's i haven't tried yet. When i recently ran out of my Rimmel Wake Me Up i decided to grab the Match Perfection as they had a larger colour selection - especially for paler skintones.

I picked up the shade Ivory, which is an alright match for my skin. I loved the Wake Me Up (and it is easily my favourite drugstore/high street foundation) but it was pretty dark. The Match Perfection hasn't made it to my top foundations sadly...

I found the formula very watery and thin - it felt like my face was kind of greasy when applied. It was low - medium coverage, but was buildable which is a plus. I didn't feel it lasted very well as i could see patches of my skin within a few hours. I bought it while it was on offer for £4.99 (normally £6.99). I think it's okay, but to me it found it suited towards lazy day make up more than anything else. Maybe i had too high expectations after hearing a lot of people rave about it, but to me Wake Me Up will always be the best!

What products have disappointed you recently? Tell me in the comments!
Lots of love,

  3. I have never been a fan of Rimmel foundations, I always find them watery too. It does make it worse though when you have such high exceptions, I always expected it to completely change my skin!

  4. I got this foundation, and I LOVED that it was pale enough for me - but the foundation was just so weak, and had no coverage at all?!?! I was pretty gutted! xx
