They say you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone. That’s exactly how I feel about my favourite foundation, the Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation.
slightly forgetful busy person that I am, I failed to act when I first noticed there was just a few pumps left in the bottle. Two days later I paid the price, with barely enough left to cover that lurking pimple on my chin.
You know a foundation is good when you panic at the sight of its empty bottle. Forget dropping $60 or more on foundation that lasts for less time than an awkward Tinder crush, at $18.95, the Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation is the budget option that beats out all its high end competitors.
For me, it ticks all the boxes.

1. Dry skin approved.
With my dry T-zone, I often find foundation sticking and looking flaky around my nose and forehead. The '24 hour moisture' hydrating formula works wonders.

Its consistency isn't too watery but isn't too thick either, which means it applies evenly over my dry areas. Most importantly it lasts. All day. To be fair, I nearly always use primer, but even so I never need touch ups.
That said, I have heard complaints about using it on oily skin, so it's always worthwhile to patch test or even request a sample before committing to a full bottle if you're not sure. (Post continues after gallery.)
