Rimmel Match Perfect Foundation
I was so excited to try this foundation that on a red light on the way home from Rite Aid, I took a baby wipe and cleaned my face and popped it on immediately. From the car mirror, it looked, I thought pretty good. It has everything that I am looking for in a foundation. Flawless coverage, check. Minimizes pores. Check. Dries to a smooth finish in seconds. Check. Non-offensive smell. Check. It does have a scent. It's a nice clean scent but a scent nonetheless if that bothers you.
Match perfection? Crap. I grabbed 130 True Ivory and it was just an orangey fail. I believe that there is a lighter shade but it was sold out on the display. I'm usually the 2nd shade from the lightest and since it was getting closer to summer I would be okay.
I tried it on 3 times, 3 different ways, finger, sponge, brush, just trying to make it work. No dice. I think to myself, oh I can just set it with a light powder. Well I don't have a light powder to try that idea... It's just not going to work out.
And I'm over bottles with no pumps. I like that it is glass and the bottle can be recycled but a pump is essential for me. Period.
So if you can find your color, this would be a great foundation for you!
