A good foundation for light skin - Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation ~ Light Porcelain

By 14:43 , ,

I am constantly on the look out for a new pale foundation that is pale enough for me, I really struggle with this and so I'm blaming my Irish heritage for that! I think I may have finally found a foundation that is genuinely pale enough for me. This might not seem like a big deal, but the fact it is also a drugstore foundation is even better.

This is the Match Perfection Foundation in Light Porcelain. Surprisingly enough I spotted this in my local Tesco for only £5 which is an absolute bargain! It's usually £6.99 which is still a very good price, and I will definitely be re-purchasing this when I run out. I am so happy with how pale it is, I believe it's a new shade that was released a couple of months ago but I've not seen it anywhere else so I decided to pick it up. I've already purchased Rimmel Match Perfection before and I really liked it (apart from needing to blend it lots due to the shade) so I already knew I'd (hopefully) like this foundation.

As you can see, there is a huge difference between Light Porcelain and Ivory. Ivory was the previous shade I owned and next to my new one, it looks so orange! The main difference after the shade, is the packaging, I much prefer the new packaging (pictured of the left) and also the new foundation has SPF 18 rather than SPF 15 and even though it's a small change it's always good to have SPF in your foundation.
The next difference is the formulation of the actual foundation, it's not as thick as my other one and so feels a lot nicer on the skin, I had no problem with the old formulation but this one is just improved.
It gives a medium coverage but I'd say it is build able and it doesn't look cakey.

I am so impressed with this foundation, mainly the shade but also the packaging, the price and the formulation. I really think this is going to be a favourite foundation for a long time. If you're pale and looking for a good drugstore foundation I'd definitely say check out this because it's incredible.
