I bought this foundation a month or two ago after dying my hair as dark as night. Slight exaggeration but for days when I looked in the mirror I kept seeing Noel Fielding looking back at me. Which is why I then went blonde for two weeks (when these snaps were taken) before reverting back to brown yet again.
Because my hair has a reddish tint to it I thought I'd embrace my natural paleness and kick the fake tan to the curb. Obviously this meant I needed a new foundation. And obviously I'm all about budgeting so went for the Rimmel Match Perfection in Ivory, simply because I'd heard a tonne of good things about this foundation on a tonne of good blogs.
I'd read it was a light to medium coverage which is something I never normally go for, preferring instead to slather my face in high coverage gunk to cover my freckles. But this time I was a new woman. This time I was going to embrace my freckles. I am woman hear me roar...not too sure if that phrase was made with the feat of trying a new foundation in mind.
So yeah it's a light coverage and has a slight pinky undertone, another good thing for us paleys. It's a tad runny but applies really well with the Real Techniques buffing brush, although you might need a powder if your skin veers more on the oily side. It's kind of a better version of the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum, which I've found in the past to be too light a coverage. Plus at a mere £7.99 it's three whole pounds cheaper.
Overall it's a great budget foundation that'll cover discolouration and give you a more "put together" look, but freckles and moles will definitely peek through. If you're after something that'll make you look fresh faced and natural then this is deffs the one. Oh and it's SPF20. Wins.
Have you tried Match Perfection? What did you think?
