Review: Rimmel Match Perfection Cream Gel Foundation

This is my new favorite foundation! It claims to adapt to skin tone and texture and it really does! I am the palest person I know and I am shade 100 Ivory (the lightest shade) and, although it doesn’t match perfectly straight away, it changes colour to my exact skin tone. With the Maybelline foundations I am Light Porcelain (yes, I’m that pale! And even that is slightly too dark!) so I was pleasantly surprised to learn that I can get away with this foundation.
It also blends in with the texture of your skin like it says on the tub and makes your skin look so smooth. The finish is very natural-looking. I wouldn’t say that it is matte, but it’s not far off. The coverage is quite light but it is easily buildable without looking cakey. The consistency is unique; it is in between a gel and cream (hence the name “Cream Gel”!) and it sinks in to your skin fairly quickly. Another thing I love about this product is that when you are wearing it, it doesn’t feel like you are wearing any foundation!
The only negative thing I can say about it is that you have to use a fair bit of product to get a good coverage (one coat is enough for me personally).
The price is very reasonable at £6.99.
And it smells good!
Have you tried this foundation? If so, I would love to hear your thoughts on it!
