Expert Review: Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation SPF20
Rimmel London has just released an updated version of the Match Perfection Foundation: Match Perfection SPF20.
So what’s different about this foundation – besides the addition of sun protection, that is? Well, like the original, this new version features wonder-tone technology, which allows the foundation to mimic the tone and texture of your skin to leave a natural finish but on top of that, it contains a 24-hour moisturising complex and vitamin E to keep your skin hydrated and protected all day. It’s also got some nifty soft focus powders to help blur imperfections leaving smooth, flawless coverage.
I gave both the new foundation and the Fix & Protect Makeup Primer a whirl, and I have to say I was really impressed with the results. As an avid fan of the original, I was happy to hear the new version promised the same skin-matching claims, and even more overjoyed to see that it delivered. I felt the foundation blended in really easily and didn’t leave any obvious lines around my jawline, and it stayed that way all day.
As for the primer, I found it did a great job of mattifying my T-zone and kept shine at bay as the day wore on. It smelt a little like sunscreen, but that could be the SPF25 in the formula and it didn’t really bother me.
