Rimmel Match Perfection in Ivory - £5

I'd heard good things about this foundation and after falling in love with Rimmel's Wake Me Up last year I thought I'd give it a go. I picked mine up for £5 in Wilkinson but the price does seem to vary £2 or so in different places. At first I was a bit blah about it. It didn't leave me as 'glowy' as the Wake Me Up but wasn't matte either but as I started to use it more I realised it was a decent product.

For one, it has a pump unlike the Revlon foundation I could compare this to. The colour looks a little too beige on my hand but once it's applied it looks very natural against my pale, pink toned skin. At first I found it difficult to blend as with other foundations I usually just dab some on and blend out with a buffing brush but I found if I applied it with a foundation brush all over in an even layer and then blending out from there it gave a lovely finish with decent coverage. It lasts about four hours on my dry skin alone but with primer and pressed powder I stretched it to six so definitely not the best product for all day wear on me but decent enough for the every day natural look. I'm not sure how it would hold up in the heat as it's currently blisteringly cold here and I find my foundation sits better in cold weather.

Overall it's a product I'll be repurchasing as a stand by but I think the Wake Me Up foundation is still my favourite Rimmel product.
