Rimmel Base Products - Hit or Miss?

I’m always on the hunt for new base products, I picked up the Match Perfection Foundation and the Powder up on a whim. I thought they could be a good affordable option to wear in work. I knew the foundation was a medium coverage but didn’t know what the lasting power would be like, so also purchased the powder from the same range.

My skin has really improved over the last few years, fewer breakouts and oils compared to my teens. This means that I can opt for a light to medium base, then apply concealer to any blemishes if I have any.

The Rimmel Match Perfection foundation has a buildable formula, it feels light on the skin and coverage any redness. Big blemishes or dark scars do need additional coverage, so keep this in mind if you purchase.

The foundation does need powdering and lasts for 4 hours on me before oils start to come to the surface. It’s easy to blot those away though. I much prefer a lighter coverage foundation and blotting than a mask like, heavy formula that is uncomfortable.

The Match Perfection Powder is a loose powder formula that comes in a plastic pot with holes to allow small amounts of product through. Once you take the sticker off the holes, there is nothing keeping the product in bar a round face puff. I don’t use the puff to apply the foundation, I much prefer a brush, but I keep it to use to cover the holes. For this reason, I don’t think this product would travel well. You might end up with a powder explosion!

I’ll continue to use both the foundation and powder from Rimmel as they work as a cheap option to wear for work. I’d love to know what foundation you like to wear for work, send me your suggestions!

10 Affordable eBay Homeware Finds

I’m obsessed with homeware lately and look for budget ways to update rooms! eBay is an amazing place for this. Homeware trends change and update frequently so I tend not to spend much on trinkets and soft furnishing. I’ve trawled the thousands of listings to find you up to date trend homeware pieces at an affordable price. I hope you like them!

Simply click the name of the product under the photo to be taken to the listing so you can purchase!

I’ve seen these in the likes of Anthropologie and West Elm. There neutral colour and texture means they can be added to your bedroom or living room without disrupting other colour schemes and themes.

Who doesn’t want to be greeted by this adorable house mat?!
