At the end of last year I was excited to receive two bottles of the new Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation with SPF 20 in the shades of 200 Soft Beige and 203 True Beige plus the Rimmel Fix & Protect Primer with SPF 25. This has enabled me to now share my Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation review and my Rimmel Fix and Protect Primer review with you.

Rimmel Fix and Protect Primer Review

The Rimmel Primer Fix and Protect with SPF 25 is designed to:

  • prime the skin prior to the application of foundation and help it stay mattified for up to 7 hours
  • protect the skin from pollution, filter out harmful uv rays & help prevent hyperpigmentation
  • fix the skin with light diffusing properties which instantly blur blemishes. It can be worn alone or under foundation.
Rimmel Fix and Protect Primer Review
Rimmel Fix and Protect Primer With SPF 25

This Rimmel primer is a lightweight, fairly runny, white formula which I find easy to fully blend into my skin. It feels moisturising on my skin, dries matte and is non greasy.
I’m a big believer of prepping my face, moisturising it and priming it prior to the application of makeup. I believe this is essential in achieving the best results possible. 

This Rimmel primer definitely creates a smoother skin surface for me to apply my foundation onto.
I’ve been using the Rimmel Fix and Protect Primer SPF 25 for the past month during my Sydney summer holidays and have found my foundation stays in place well over the top of it and does not slide off. My face also does remain matte for the majority of the day, which is a definite bonus, especially in this current warm weather, although I do also apply a setting powder over my T zone.
I’m grateful for the included SPF 25 but wish it were slightly higher still to remove my need for additional facial sun protection. If I were working indoors I would be happy with this level of sun protection, but as I’ve been on holidays and outside a lot I have still included an extra layer of sunscreen in my routine. Having had a history of malignant melanoma I have become super vigilant about wearing adequate sunscreen.
Overall as you can tell from this positive Rimmel primer review I’m happy with this product and will be repurchasing it once this tube is finished. Now let’s move on to my Rimmel Foundation Match Perfection review.

Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation Review

I love the packaging of this foundation. It comes in a 30ml glass bottle with a hygienic pump which dispenses a good amount of product resulting in no wastage and no mess!

This Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation is lightweight and I find it super easy to blend. It’s beautifully smooth in application. Every Rimmel foundation review I’ve read about this product agrees with this.

The Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation 200 Soft Beige shade matches my face’s skin tone perfectly so I don’t have to worry about any obvious lines showing around my jaw line and the end result of this foundation is very natural looking. 

It feels hydrating and leaves my skin looking matte and feeling velvety to touch. It provides medium coverage.

I do use setting powder especially around my nose area with this foundation and primer as this is where I normally show shine first.

I appreciate the SPF 20 included in this product which would be adequate for me on days I’m working indoors but when on holidays and spending significant amounts of time outdoors I do apply an additional, stronger level of sun protection underneath my makeup.

My Rimmel Match Perfection review is overwhelmingly positive. This product together with the Rimmel primer are some of the best Rimmel products I have used. I especially liked this foundation and plan to continue using it after I finish these two bottles. I will buy the Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation Soft Beige again.
