Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation

When it comes to foundations, I'm the kind of person who likes to mix and match various products, and when one runs out, I'll pick up a different one to try. As I hear my friend Kate mention the Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation a lot, I thought I might as well give it a whirl.

I was a bit wary at first as the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation which I tried ages ago caused me to break out, but so far this product has been fine on my skin. Firstly, it's cheap - at £6.99 it's nice and affordable which is a massive plus in my eyes. I love the formula of this foundation - it comes out fairly watery which makes it easy to blend in (I like to use my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush for that).

I was a little worried that I'd end up an oily mess as time went on, due to my combination skin and the fact that it has 'light perfecting radiance', but with a bit of powder it actually lasts really well throughout the day. I would say it has a medium but still natural finish that covers any redness and blemishes quite well, and I generally think it's a great product! I've only been using it for a week, but so far I'm really impressed and it's overtaken my previous face products to become part of my daily routine.

Have you ever tried this foundation? What did you think?
