Product review – Rimmel Match Perfection foundation

Hi everyone!

Here is another review from a product I tried out. I needed a new foundation because my other one that I have is almost empty. And because my skin is a little more tanned than usual I wanted a shade that is a little bit darker so I don’t have to use much other products. But because I wouldn’t use a darker one that much, I didn’t want to spend much money on it, so I wanted to try one from the drugstore. I went for one from Rimmel because I heard a lot of people talk about it.

Finally I got the Rimmel Match Perfection – Light Perfecting Radiance Foundation. At first I wanted to try the Wake My Up one, but I tried it out and there is some glitter in it, and because I do tend to have a more oily skin I didn’t want to have that little bit of glitter in it. So that’s why I tried one of the other ones.

I am surprised that it is quiet a good one. I personally don’t need to apply that much. I think it has a good coverage. I would say medium to full, but it’s not quit yet there. I give it a medium+. When I first apply it, it has a bit of a rose undertone, but it blends out really well to a nice skin color. I have pretty red cheeks of my own and after a thin layer it is pretty much completely covered. It can be applied with your hands or a brush. I personally prefer to use a brush because sometimes it is easier to reach some places and it gives a more even finish. It also has SPF in it, which makes it interesting to use during summer. And another plus is that it doesn’t break me out.

There are a few colors in the range, but it is rather limited. But if you don’t find your matching color, you can blend 2 colors to match your skin tone. I chose for the color 300-Sand because it is a little bit darker.

There are of course better foundations, but for this price it is a very good one. It gets the job pretty well done. I give it an 8 out of 10.

Product review – instant nail polish remover

Are you struggling to get your nail polish of? Try an instant nail polish remover!

Begin March I bought the magic Nail Polish Remover from Bourjois. And while I was in New York I tried the Instant Nail Polish Remover from the Sephora Collection at Sephora.

Both are products to fastly remove your nail polish. They both make use of a sponge drenched in nail polish remover. You have to put your finger in the bottle, and twist the bottle a few times and the nail polish comes right of. Even the most stubborn nail polishes are gone in a few minutes!

The one from Bourjois says it only takes one second for each finger. But I think that’s a bit overstated. It takes a bit longer than one second, but it sure is a lot faster than with cotton balls and regular polish remover. It takes me around 3-5minutes to get my nail polish of, depending on the kind of polish (glitter takes a little bit longer). Another advantage of the Bourjois one, is that it doesn’t have that typical polish remover smell. It has a red fruit and vanilla fragrance. And last but not least, it doesn’t dry out your nails/skin like regular polish remover does. It is a little bit oily, so it nourishes it.
(Bourjois magic nail polish remover – around 7,99€, available at Kruidvat, Di and Ici Paris Xl)

The one from Sephora is based on the same concept. I only tried it once, but I was satisfied over it’s use.
(Sephora instant nail polish remover – 9,50$, available at Sephora)

Stay tuned for more product reviews!
