Review: Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder & Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation

Tuesday, 11 November 2014

A while ago I bought this Rimmel Pressed Powder and Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation. Because I use both products on almost a daily basis, I thought it was time to review them for you.

Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation:
This foundation has got a lot of pros, but for me also a con. I'll start with the pros: your face looks amazingly healthy and fresh with this foundation. I only use one pump, just to make my face look a little bit more fresh. The coverage isn't amazing, so if you're searching for a foundation with a heavier coverage I wouldn't recommend this foundation. The con is that the colour is, like the colour of so many other foundations, too dark for my skin. This is my sixth bottle in the wrong colour in six months of time. When I'm buying the colour 'ivory' I always think I have the right one, but nothing is less true. On the internet I saw that Rimmel also has a colour 'true ivory', which I think is a bit lighter, but I haven't seen that colour in the Dutch drugstores unfortunately.
The solution I've found for this problem is mixing it with a white foundation. This helps a little bit, but it still doesn't make my perfect skin colour. Thus, it's not a real match perfection, but it is a very nice foundation!

Rimmel Pressed Powder:
This powder does exactly what a powder needs to do: it makes sure your makeup stays on longer and it prevents your face from shining. It does a very good job. In the powder there are tiny glitters that you can barely see, but that give your face a beautiful finish. What I like so much about this powder, is that it doesn't make the effect of the foundation you use dissapear. When you use a foundation like the Match Perfection, you'll get a really beautifyl glowing, healthy looking skin. The powder doesn't make this dissapear, it only makes sure the effect will be there for a longer time.

Have you tried one of these products? And do you have the same issues with finding the right shade as I have?
