Rimmel Match Perfection Compact Powder in Soft Beige

Hello all! Today, I’m reviewing the Match Perfection Ultra Creamy Compact Powder from Rimmel in the shade Soft Beige. I bought this in combination with the Match Perfection Foundation. They compliment in each other and the shade is a good enough match for me as well.

There aren’t too many shades to choose from and people with darker skintones might unfortunately, have trouble finding a match. The closest shade I got is Soft Beige. It isn’t an exact match but it blends well into my skin and looks even.

What I love most about this powder, is the texture. The powder isn’t rough or chalky, it feels very smooth and buttery. It similar to Mac Foundation Fix Plus powders. But at the same time, it’s very lightweight. It gives sheer to medium coverage. Medium even coverage is more likely to last well if you use a primer though.

I think this would work best for people with normal or oily/combination skin. The powder settles to a semi-matte finish and doesn’t look cakey. I gives a very natural and well blended finish. You can also use this to set your foundation or concealer. As I have dry skin, I don’t use this a lot in winters. If you wear it without moisturiser underneath, it can appear flakey in the dry patches.

This lasts well throughout the day and I’m very happy with it on that front. It gives a good total 6 hours of wear and then starts to fade.

I like the packaging of this. It comes with a mirror and sponge below the powder pan. It’s very convenient to use on the go.

What I like best about the product is the finish, it looks very natural and gives an even look. The price is also good on the pocket, around Rs. 500 for 8.5g of product.

    Love that this is smooth and buttery. Most drugstore powders I have are dry and cakey!:P

      This kept the shine away on times when I had oily skin. But you could try Rimmel’s Stay Matte powder as well.
