I have spent years searching both drugstores and high end stores for a perfect pale foundation, that I actually love. I have tried Estee Lauder's Double Wear foundation, in their palest shade - and it was still too dark! Even Clinique couldn't find a shade in their entire range to suit my skin tone. However, after a recent trip into boots, I found Rimmel Match Perfection foundation, I didn't have high hopes for the actual foundation, but the colour (010 Light Porcelain) looked to be the perfect shade for my pale skin!
However, I was wrong not to have high hopes. This foundation is so nice! It's so light on the skin, it smells fabulous, and it has a good coverage! I'm not one of those people who wear makeup all day - or for long periods of time, so I'm not too sure on how well it lasts on the skin. But for me, it does the perfect job. It stays put for the length of time I wear it for (usually 4 hours). The smell won me over more than anything, a lot of people don't like scented face products, I don't usually, but this smells so good, I feared the fragrance would break my skin out... but I've not had one spot!
Overall, I looooove this foundation! From the texture, to the coverage, to the smell! Everything! I would recommend it to anyone, pale or not, they have an excellent shade range to suit all skin tones. But for those of you who are pale, and who struggle every time to get a foundation to actually match, I highly recommend you try this one out. xo
