Match Perfection VS Lasting Finsh | Elizabeth Gayle

Match perfection and lasting finish are both a very popular foundation in the Rimmel London collection. They are both in the similar price range and also the packaging is quite the same.
Personally I love both of these foundations, but some of my friends disagree with me. Most of them prefer one or the other. I thought that this would be a good blog post if you are wondering if they have any differences. Hope you enjoy.


Match Perfection:

I have repurchased this foundation around seven times. One of my favourite foundations in my collection. I mostly wear this foundation for school or if I am popping out as it is not a heavy texture and gives more of flawless look, which I personally think is amazing for school as I don't really like wearing loads of makeup to school. It's  a thin, runny foundation that spreads evenly and feels quite silky smooth. The pump makes dispensing a lot easier but you need to be careful because it is a very light texture which means you could end up with a load, and you don't want that happening!

The coverage of this foundation is not very good, but it is very buildable. I normally apply this foundation twice onto my face with my fingers as I find that my foundation brush leaves streaks. This could be that the foundation is very light, but most properly caused by my cheap makeup brush haha!
I also apply a powder onto my face to fade the shininess away and to keep my foundation in place for the whole day. The powder I currently use is the 'Stay Matte' by Rimmel London.

I love this foundation, defiantly worth the money. Just a essential foundation to be in your collection when you don't want to go all out with your makeup. I would recommend to go a shade darker than your actual shade, as the shades are lighter than others.

Lasting Finish:

Lasting finish is in the same price range as the match perfection foundation, and basically in the same kind of glass bottle, different colour packaging though. I wear this foundation for weekends or evenings if I am doing something ( which I never do haha! ) The texture of this foundation is very heavy unlike match perfection. The thing I love most about this foundation is as it is a heavy texture, it doesn't cake over your face if you get what I mean? I do have to apply a powder over my face overwhise my face does look quite dewy. I apply my absolute favourite powder which is 'stay matte'
as I said above. Properly the only powder I use.

I apply this foundation with my beauty blender as I find if I am using my fingers, it drags across my face and doesn't blend equally. After applying this foundation onto my face in the morning, I don't need to redo it as it lasts for so long. Good coverage and also has SPF 20 in it, which is always a good thing. This foundation was actually featured in my 2014 favourites which you could read here.
All I can say is - amazing coverage - amazing price. What else can you ask for? I highly recommend!

I personally love both these foundations and I have no doubt in them. I am sure I will be buying these foundation for the next year or so. They are both my favourite foundations.
