Review: Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation

Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation has a very light texture, almost creamy. Makes it very easy to apply and blend to your skin with your fingers. Although I found that it gives better results when you use a foundation brush.

Rimmel London
Match Perfection Foundation - 100 Ivoy
RRP: $17.95

This foundation gives you a flawless, sheer coverage. You can always build up with more to get a fuller effect. I've used two coats to get that flawless coverage, that gives a full cover without looking to heavy or cakey. Match perfection also covers just about everything on your skin, from blemishes to scarring. Once a read the back of the bottle, I found out that the reason why this foundation gives you a natural illuminating glow comes from Sapphire Radiance Complex, that is included in the texture. It doesn't make your skin look shiny or to oily. Just a natural glow. 

The Match Perfection Foundation has a fresh scent, almost floral which disappears as soon as the foundations has absorbed into the skin. As an extra , the foundation also has SPF 18.

This foundation does last all day & night. As I work from 9 to 7 almost everyday, this foundation gives me the full coverage I need when I'm busy working. I tried shade 100 in IVOY, which is a nude/ beige shade, which perfectly matched my skin tone, with many shades available, which range from a very light to a dark.

For just $17.95, this is a great foundation at a bargain price. I brought mine from Priceline, but will also be available in stores that sell makeup, like : Big W, Target, Kmart etc. I will consider purchasing it again.

Priceline 40% Off Makeup!

once again Priceline had another amazing deal on makeup. Most of you guys would of read my last post about the crazy Priceline deal where you spend $60 + to recive a beauty bag, linked HERE.
Well Priceline decided to throw another sale on makeup. How crazy! Just as I stocked up on makeup just a couple of weeks ago, this sale happens.

It's basically 40% off all makeup! Only two day sale from 23-24 of April.
I decided to go the last day to score some sales, which was an awful idea. everything I wanted was either sold out or in the wrong colour/shade. Also the store was trashed with girls going crazy. I was freaking out, so I grabbed a whole pile of things I've never used before, wanted to try & what I love.

Here's What I Brought:

• Rimmel: Match Perfection In Ivory
• Maybelline: Fit Me Pressed Powder In 225 (medium buff)
• Australis: Fresh & Flawless Pressed Powder in Darkest Brown
• Essence: Colour & Go In Date In The Moonlight (126)
• Australis: Nail Colour In Aqua
• Maybelline: Colour & Tattoo In Audacious Asphalt (silver)
• Essence: I ❤ Extreme Volume Mascara In Black

5 Best Ways To Wear Glitter

it’s all about the sparkle and shine! Glitter seems to be the hottest trend gracing the sidewalks, runways and it’s all about styling the right pieces to make a shining statement. Whether you prefer makeup, shoes, clothing or bags, there are glitter options to suit all of your preferences. I've listed my top 5 favourite glitter looks :)


The least intimidating place to try your hand at sparkles is on your nails. Change your French manicure by replacing the standard white tips with glittery or metallic colours. Make a statement by swapping the normal nude shade for a darker one. Paint nails black or navy and finish with a glitter tip


If you’re going to wear glitter on the eyes, please reserve it for nights out and festive parties. Daytime glitter is a no-no but a touch of evening sparkle can look pretty when the lights are low. For those feeling bold, apply a cream based product to the lids (any concealer or cream eye shadow will do) and press a multi-toned glitter powder on top of it for starry eyes. Be sure to hold a tissue under the eyes and over the cheeks to catch any fall out.

Nothing will get beat a glitter blazer, these things can make a whole room stop and just stare at you. Not to mention you'll shine like a disco ball. Throwing on a glitter blazer just adds an extra touch and shine.


If you’re heading out on the town, highlight a pair of glitter heels or platform pumps with a short yet frilly dress. All eyes are going to be drawn to your feet, so be sure those legs of yours are freshly waxed. 


glitter bags are the biggest statement piece you could ever wear. If you want to make any outfit pop out and get your attention, then a gorgeous glitter purse/bag is the trick.
