Rimmel Match Perfection foundation review

 After using drugstore makeup in my early teens I steered towards more high end products when I was 15/16/17. I've been using MAC foundation for a good 2 years now but recently switched back to drugstore foundation after suffering from Acne. I wanted to see if the MAC foundation was breaking me out, as I never really got spots before using it. Makes sense huh?
 I picked up the lightest colour which was Light Porcelain and it certainly lives up to its name. Its super light and perfect for the whitest skin tone, like mine! It already comes with a pump which I like also. 
 The foundation itself is rather runny. Something I have not been used to for a while. It feels rather thin as you apply it and you can see this from the minute you press some out of the pump. This was a huge change for me as the MAC Studio Fix foundation I have worn for ages is the heaviest coverage ever, which I like - because of my spots. A cruel circle I admit. I apply two coats of the foundation to give me a medium even full coverage effect. Applying one layer would give a lovely light effect and I would only apply one layer if my skin was better or I felt more comfortable in it.

Match Perfection - Studio Fix in NW10. Here is a comparison of the colour in the Rimmel and MAC and the shade of the MAC is PERFECT for me and with the Rimmel more or less matching it I was stoked! 

Anyhow, I plan on using this foundation for at least another two weeks to see how I get on with it, but I genuinely do recommend it to ANYONE who is after a new foundation! It is wonderful applied with a powder over the top as it can look abit shiny once applied, plus that makes it last longer. Try Rimmel Stay Matte or MAC Mineralise Skinfinish natural!
