I’ve recently been testing out the Rimmel Match Perfection foundation and I’ve been loving it. Many years ago during high school, I used the Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation religiously. It’s all I ever used and recently I have seen so many people say how amazing the Match Perfection foundation is and I was sceptical but I thought I would test it out myself to see whether it’s worth the hype. SPOLIER: IT’S FANTASTIC.
I wore this foundation for a few days before a night out to test how it wore on my skin. I first started with using the Maybelline Baby Skin primer on one side of my face and leaving the other side free of a primer. I did this so I could truly test out the wear of this product and whether it makes a difference to use a primer or not. I could definitely see a difference between either side when I used a primer and didn’t. The combination of both the primer and foundation made my skin look totally flawless and my pores were so blurred out. It was incredible.
It isn’t too thick at all when it’s on the skin it’s not super dewy but it makes your skin look so healthy which I love. It’s extremely long wearing and has become my go to foundation for a night out because of this. I especially love the shade selection because it caters for so many different skin colours and I think that just makes the collection worth trying really.
I’m wearing it in the photo below and I just love the finish and how other products sit on my skin once it’s applied. It’s also amazing coverage and I didn’t experience it since it is a drugstore foundation.
I totally recommend this foundation and I can see me wanting to try the other complexion products from Rimmel.

DISCLAIMER: This is not me being horrible towards Revlon at all. I do enjoy products from the brand and will more than likely purchase more, just not this foundation. It simply didn’t work for my skin and I didn’t like it.
I don’t enjoy slating products at all, especially when I do enjoy other products from the brand. However, the Revlon Foundation Stick was the most disappointing foundation I have ever used. I’m combination skin between dry/oily which I’m fine with and I generally control it quite well but this foundation literally did nothing, it didn’t even stay on for more than 2 hours and sometimes less.
Regardless of whether I used a primer, moisturiser or whatever, it doesn’t bloody stay on. I got it from Superdrug in the 3 for 2 deal but it’s normal price is £9.99 and it’s not worth it at all. It isn’t even worth the 3 for 2 deal and it was a free product!
Within 2 hours it literally looked like I hadn’t applied anything. The texture felt awful and just didn’t ever set. No products would stick to it at all. So, overall rubbish product.

For Christmas 2016 I received the Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation as a gift from my parents. I had tried a sample portion during the summer of 2016 and I really enjoyed it and had informed my parents as a possible gift idea. So, ever since i’ve been testing it out to see whether it’s actually as good as I remember. Having spent the last month wearing it I’ve realised it’s actually not as good as I remember which has majorly disappointed me. So, since I was having so much trouble deciding whether I actually liked it I had my best friend Megan test it out too on a night out and Megan really liked it. Today’s review is going to be slightly different than usual, this time you’ll have 2 different reviews from myself and Megan.
Megan has combination to oily skin, the same as me but I do have quite dry skin around my nose. We both wore the foundation on the same night and throughout the night I noticed that the foundation was definitely sitting differently on our skins. For me I found that when it’s first applied, it’s beautiful and makes me look flawless but across the time that I wear it I find that it rubs off around my pores and nose area and really makes my skin look quite gross. Before it starts to move away from my nose I usually get around 3 hours wear time out of it and since it’s the ‘all nighter’ foundation I kind of expect it to last a lot longer for 3 hours. Megan actually really enjoyed wearing this foundation, she found that it didn’t go patchy at all and stayed put around her oily areas. It blended so comfortably on her skin and it literally done as it said on the tin and lasted all night.
I personally wouldn’t ever purchase this again but I know Megan loves it and would definitely wear this happily. Let us know what you think of it and give us recommendations for other foundations you’ve loved.

I’ve been testing out the Milani 2 in 1 Foundation for over a month and decided it was finally time to let you guys know what I’ve been enjoying and disliking about this product. I got mine in the shade creamy vanilla for £10 from Beauty Bay, check here.
There are 14 shades available in the selection that range from fair skin to dark skin. I personally think the range could be slightly improved for the fairest side, mine is the lightest and it’s still slightly too dark although it’s nothing I can’t fix with concealer. For £10 you receive the normal size bottle that you would get from drugstores. This foundation is so high coverage, literally covers all of my redness, acne scars and blemishes so well and it’s long lasting too. However, it’s a very thick formula so a little goes a long way and it can feel slightly caked-faced if you put too much on. It dries quickly and leaves a beautiful dewy finish. The bottle does have a pump which I love because it’s simply easier to get out of the bottle.
I apply mine to the back of my hand and dot a bit on each cheek, chin, forehead and nose. I use my damp Real Techniques beauty sponge to blend and create a flawless complexion. Remembering to bring it down my neck.
I love this foundation, it creates such an amazing complexion and covers up all imperfections. It’s beautiful and dewy, add highlight and you’re basically looking like a diamond. It’s amazing for £10 and I couldn’t get over how lovely it sits on the face. I recommend for everybody to try this fantastic product.
