Rimmel Match Perfection VoxBox | Review

Hello, lovelies!

Like oh my gosh it has been a few days since my last post as I have been preparing for Ramadan and I haven't been feeling well either so took a little blogging break but I am back now with a little bit of luck and some motivation. 

I recently got sent a VoxBox again recently and I was so excited that I actually did a little dance and opened it like it was Christmas morning. This box is called the match perfection box and basically inside the box is a foundation, concealer and 3 nude liquid lipsticks.

I was pleasantly surprised at how many products were in this VoxBox as I was with my last box. In the box, they gifted me the shade porcelain for the foundation that matched my skin tone almost perfectly which is pretty impressive seeing as my skin tone is awkward and the best foundation shades that have matched me are Alabaster by Clinique and Bobbi Brown.

The foundation is described by Rimmel to match 99% of the UK skin tones and comes in 25 different shades. The foundation is weightless on the skin with a smooth finish. It has smart tone technology for natural-looking results with a 24hour moisture complex. Match perfection foundation also has soft focus powers to reduce imperfections, pores and dark circles and if that wasn't enough it has an SPF of 20.

Match Perfection Foundation.  ( From RRP £5.32 each )
Quite impressed with this foundation to be honest as I am rather picky when it comes to foundation. My usual favourites are the urban decay naked which is lovely and weightless on my skin and also the Clinique super balanced foundation which are both premium priced foundations. 

I loved how dewy this made my skin look which is a nice look I like to have during the warmer months. It also has a good light-medium finish which is fab. I, however, don't like the fragrance unfortunately as I am not a fan of fragrances in foundations. Fragrances in foundations usually make my skin break out and can make my skin sore. This one wasn't too bad on my skin but it did leave a slight break out but nothing major. 

The packaging is quite nice and simple with a nice heavy bottle which is nice as some budget foundations are plastic and I always find them awkward to use. The pump is brilliant too as it gives you a fair amount of product each time without any mess, I've generally had a foundation that's pumped foundation past my beauty blender to all over my pillow on bed LOL!

Pros
  • 25 shades to choose from
  • Easy to use the pump
  • Applies evenly
  • Long lasting
  • Didn't transfer
  • Buildable coverage 
  • Light-medium coverage 
  • Built-in SPF
Cons
  • The scent is overpowering 
  • Scent caused a small breakout on my skin


Match Perfection concealer 
I found the shade they sent me ( porcelain) matched my skin perfectly. The concealer blended perfectly even though I am not keen on the applicator as I find them fiddly and much prefer a concealer wand. Another thing I'm not keen on is the scent, it is a little too much for me especially for being under my eyes. It did perform very well like the foundation and gave a lovely dewy effect and had a long-lasting effect too.

Pros
  • Blends perfectly
  • Long lasting 
  • Doesn't crease 
  • Worked well on my dark circles
  • Has buildable coverage 
Cons
  • The scent was too much
  • Not keen on the applicator

I had a bit of love-hate relationship with these lipsticks. Firstly the applicator is a teardrop shape that is perfect for applying lipstick evenly onto the lips in one go. Then the shades they gave me are all lovely but my favourite has to 'be my baby' as it applies nicely and is a lovely pinky nude shade. I wasn't so keen on the others, unfortunately.

Pros
  • 25 shades to choose from
  • Easy to use applicator 
  • Long lasting
Cons
  • Strong scent
  • Can be a little dry

Until next time lovelies
