Hello lovely readers and new followers! It's lovely to be able to write and share the reviews with you and I love logging on and reading new comments!! It always puts a smile on my face and of course I reply to each and every person that comments or asks a question! :)
This next review is going to be about Rimmel's foundation in TRUE IVORY #103. It's the Match perfection cream gel foundation.
Before even reading the label I immediatley assumed it was going to be heavier than the liquid foundation but I was actually wrong as I was about to find out!!
|Match perfection....the colour is really nice and the letters shimmer! :)|
|Colour- True Ivory #103|
Once you unscrew the lid you come to a little white cap which you normally get in moisturisers and I can only assume it's to protect the liquid/cream/gel from any bacteria.
|The little white cap to protect the foundation.|
I quite like the white cap being there as a protector because it shows that Rimmel have thought about their product and how they can make it mre hygienic because lets face it with this you either dip your foundation brush straight into it or a sponge or your fingers!!
Not that many people will get a tiny spatula and put it on the back of their hand. ( For the record I actually do have a little white spatula thats in my make-up kit for moisturiser, foundations and different creams as I work on so many people and have to keep everything clean!)
So back to the point- it's nice to see Rimmel have given thought to this product.
The next thing I want to point out is the texture...it feels like a thick water if that makes sense....it doesn't feel heavy. It feels light and blends in with your skin in seconds! This product really does what is says...it matches the skin tone and texture.
As I said above I thought it would be quite sticky and heavy....it's really not...it's like applying a lightweight tinted moisturiser. It seems to blend in with your skin quicker than a certain lizard does with it's surroundings.
The cover is great too....for me this covers better than the liquid version. I have a little scar on my cheek from a blemish I had ( I had really bad skin about a year ago..but it's fine now) and it covered it immediately so that really impressed me! :)
The foundation stayed put all day, it only went shiny around my nose and I had slight patches on my cheeks but towards the end of the day when I was returning to my home sweet home so I wasn't too bothered but if I was going out that evening I would have needed either blotting paper or a little tinted powder just to go over my nose area.
The packaging of this foundation is lovely, it's a little container so girls that don't have time to do their make-up at home or want to top-up throughout the day can easily have it in their bags without it being heavy or too big.
It also looks really cute in make-up kits and purses because you catch that hint of blue every now and again which seems to be a soothing colour to me....it reminds me of purple which reminds me of lavender which I love the smell of.....my mind works in weird ways!! :p
And I LOVE the way the letters shine :)
I really liked this foundation and I'm going to mark it 8/10. It doesn't feel heavy at all...gave me the coverage I wanted whilst still looking very natural ( I hate the fake look). The only thing letting it down was the little bit of shine I had at the end of the day and the ever so slight patching on my cheeks. It didn't bother me that much as I was going home but I would have had to blott it or apply powder over the area if I was going out that evening.
Over the liquid foundation and this foundation I can't really choose because they both have their good qualities...the liquid version did give some coverage but not as much as this.
I would reccomend this to girls with dry/normal skin. Oily skin I would say use the liquid version with a little powder once you've applied it.
You can buy this from Boots for: £6.99 and I think theres a 3 for 2 offer on at the moment so make sure you head down to your local store or check it out online!
