Review: Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation and Fix & Protect Primer

Hello beauties,

The drugstore is upping their game by relaunching a lot of their foundations with new formulas. This month Rimmel has relaunched their Match Perfection Foundation* and introduced a new primer, the Fix and Protect Primer*.


Overall Thoughts about the Rimmel Fix and Protect Primer*:

  • It’s quite a liquidy texture and a little goes a long way
  • It creates a slight white cast when blended into the skin, but doesn’t alter the final colour of the foundation
  • Does not blur pores or imperfections
  • Works well with the Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation, but not that good with other foundations
  • Doesn’t provide makeup longevity


How to Apply the Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation:

  • The photo above shows how the foundation looks when applied with a the Real Techniques Buffing Brush
  • The bottom photos shows how the foundation looks when applied with a damp Beauty Blender
  • I prefer the finish of the Beauty Blender
  • I apply about 1-2 pumps to create a medium to full coverage finish (1 pump is quite a lot of product)

Overall Thoughts about the Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation*:

  • Poor colour selection, only 5 shades. However with the technology used to create this foundation, it’s meant to adapt to your skin colour. I tend to agree with this, because the darkest shade is a bit light for me but once blended it its not too obviously light on me….
  • This foundation is more on the full coverage spectrum
  • Applies and blends beautifully
  • Photographs brilliantly (as good as some of my high end foundations)
  • Lasts well throughout the day. Around the 4 hour mark a few oils peak through. By 5-6 hours its starts to separate on my chin and mouth area
  • Works well with the Rimmel Fix and Protect Primer, but I prefer it with Benefit Professional



Overall really impressed with the foundation but the primer is a massive miss. Keep in mind I have oily skin so I need a primer that’s going to keep the oils at bay. To pick up these new release Rimmel products make sure to check out your local Priceline or chemist.
