Rimmel London Match Perfection Cream Gel Foundation


6.99 Pounds (Around INR 570-600) for 18 ml.


The foundation comes in a round, glass pot with a screw off cap. I don’t like it at all, as the foundation gets smeared on the white lid (check picture). I wish the foundation came in tube or even bottle packaging with a pump dispenser and that would be good. I don’t think I will ever carry this glass pot with me on travel.

My Take on Rimmel London Match Perfection Cream Gel Foundation:

Rimmel London is a popular drugstore brand in UK. I got a chance to buy a few products from this brand some time back and this foundation is one of it.

Now, I have used a lot of formulations in foundations like cream, liquid, powder, mousse, but I was excited to try this foundation as it claims to be a cream gel foundation.

This foundation truly has this very interesting formula; it feels creamy yet light weight like a gel.  I dot this all over my face and prefer to use my hands to blend it in. This foundation blends in super fast, effortlessly; just the way moisturisers seep into the skin. It gives a slight cooling, refreshing feel to the face on immediate application which stays on for some 10-15 minutes. It also has a pleasant fragrance which I like, which stays just till the time I am applying it and then fades off.

It feels very light on the skin, gives a natural finish and does not get cakey at all. This is great for oily skin and gives a matte finish.  About the coverage, I would say it is light-medium. This is a decent routine wear foundation. It would be apt for you if you have a skin tone with slight imperfections which does not require heavy concealing/coverage. The staying power is about 5-6 hours which I believe; is fine for a drugstore brand foundation.

When I swatched it first, I was a little disappointed as it looked a little orang-ish and seemed dark for my skin tone, but to my surprise, it matches my skin tone well, within 4-5 minutes of applying/blending it in; that is something really new for me.  So, it does live up to its claim of matching the skin tone, amazing, isn’t it!!!!

Overall, a decent, routine wear foundation which suits combination-oily skin.

Pros of Rimmel London Match Perfection Cream Gel Foundation:

  • The formula is between creamy and gel like.
  • Blends amazingly, quickly without much effort.
  • Gives a natural finish and does not look cakey at all.
  • Feels lightweight on the skin.
  • Gives matte finish.
  • Gives light-medium coverage.
  • I like its refreshing, pleasant fragrance.
  • Does not clog pores or cause breakouts.
  • It does live up to its claim of adapting itself to the skin tone.
  • Staying power is about 5-6 hours.
  • Suits combination-oily skin.
  • Fairly priced.

Cons of Rimmel London Match Perfection Cream Gel Foundation:

  • Limited number of shades available.
  • Not for dry skin.
  • Has fragrance.
  • No ingredients list mentioned.
  • Availability in India.
  • Glass pot packaging.
