Rimmel Match Perfection Blush Review and Swatches

I picked up a Rimmel Match Perfection Blush the other day. I was intrigued because Rimmel claimed that they had come up with the perfect blush for my skin color. So, was I tickled pink or did they fall short of their perfection claim?

Rimmel claims that the blushes have a trio of three coordinated blush shades that will create a natural fresh flush of color on the cheeks.  They claim that the “formula contains blue sapphire pigments creating an all over healthy looking glow.”

The blushes come in 4 shades to cover all skintones.  Light, Light Medium, Medium and Dark.  I got the light shade for my NC 20 skin.

As you can see, the three colors they picked for my skintone are very light, as you would expect, to create a natural flush on such a light skintone.  I personally like a little more color, but that is not what I am judging this product on.

The three shades included in the light palette are a peach, a pink and a brown.  They do have a subtle sheen to them. The blush pan is pretty big and all three shades can be swirled together, which is what I did, or used separately, if you like.

These shades are not highly pigmented and they are a little chalky.  They kick up quite a bit of dust and when you tap your brush off you loose most of your product.  They do create a natural glow on the cheeks, but you have to put a lot of work into getting it there.

The packaging is plastic and, although it seems that they intended a screw top lid, the lid does not hold, leaving you with a a top that easily slides on and off, which is why I hate the packaging.  Put it in your purse and its a mess waiting to happen.  There is no mirror or applicator.

Overall, it is an ok product, not one that I would repurchase.  I just don’t want to put that much effort into getting a color on my cheeks, however, if you are heavy handed with blushes and constantly find yourself with more color than you intended, this may work for you.
