    Review: Rimmel Match Perfect Foundation in 402 Bronze


    I've bought three pharmacie / pharmacy / drugstore foundations this yearL'oreal True Match, Maybelline Fit Me and this oneand this is my favourite out of the three.

    Let's break down the good and the bad of Rimmel Match Perfection 402 Bronze.



    The Good

    • Has a pump (always a plus)
    • Natural-looking
    • Semi-dewy
    • Evens out skin
    • Coverage is not bad at all (still needs a good concealer)
    • Affordable

    The Bad

    • Skin turns a little oily after a few hours (better oil control than L'oreal True Match or Maybelline Fit Me)
    • Shade isn't completely spot on (but good enough)
    • Shade changes over time


    The shade 402 Bronze is unfortunately not available in Paris but luckily I already had a trip to England planned before discovering this foundation. I made a beeline for the first Superdrug I saw in Manchester to get this (and some other products too, of course).


    Wearing the foundation (in different lightings):


    Swatches, comparing Rimmel Perfect Match 402 Bronze on the right with L'oreal True Match W7 on the left:

    Rimmel Match Perfection in 402 Bronze has more yellow in it than L'oreal True Match W7, which probably explains why Rimmel Match Perfection 402 suits my skin tone more.


    Final verdict: I'm happy I got to experiment with Rimmel Match Perfect foundation as it's a nice enough foundation, coming from a pharmacy / drugstore, but I won't repurchase.

    If you're looking to buy this foundation, I hope this review helps you!

    1. Hi as an NC 43 I found the following to be of a closer match.

      Maxfactor CC cream in Bronze was spot on, with yellow undertones
      Maybelline BB cream 8 in 1 medium-deep
      Revlon nearly naked toast was a tad darker but tan lacked the yellow undertone
      Loreal golden caramel was spot on ....

      I will definitely try rimmel

      1. Thanks for sharing, Supriya! I've never thought of trying Max Factor CC cream or Maybelline BB Cream but i'm intrigued now...
