Drugstore foundations for dry skin from left to right: Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation, Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation  and L’Oreal True Match Lumi/Lumi Magique Foundation. 
*Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation Review
To say I love this foundation would be an understatement. I feel like it deserves a whole dedicated review because it is so great. Perfect for my dry skin, great light reflecting properties and it feels nice on the skin. The best part about it is easily the shade range. Finally a drugstore foundation which caters to lighter and darker skin tones. The lightest shade of this foundation is actually too light for me and that is a rare encounter (I would say the lightest shade is equivalent to Bobbi Brown Albaster (maybe even lighter!), AMAZING for a drugstore foundation, I am a Bobbi Brown Porcelain and I match the third shade, 081 Fair Ivory of this foundation) It also reminds me of my favourite Bobbi Brown Luminous Moisturising Foundation just with less coverage. (This is the new formula. Rimmel recently revamped their old formula which had a poor shade range. Unsure of the difference?)
- AMAZING shade range- Healthy, luminous finish- Great for dry skin- Decent Hydration- Doesn’t highlight dry patches- Light coverage- Average staying power- Comes with a pump (apparently the US version lacks this feature)- Light, fluid formula- Doesn’t feel heavy on the skin- Affordable- SPF 18- RRP: $17.95 in AUS, £6.99 in the UK, $5.99 in the US
Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation Review
This product receives so much hype in the beauty world and I can easily say this foundation is my most requested review of all time but sadly I was a bit disappointed. The shade range is quite poor (Especially in comparison to Rimmel Match Perfection) and on top of that it oxidizes. I do however like the formula and the coverage this foundation provides.
- Poor shade range (especially for fair and deep skin)- Oxidizes- Turns slightly shiny throughout the day (even on dry skin)- Nice coverage light to medium and buildable- Poor packaging (no pump)- Thick liquid formula, (almost like a cream)- Feels light on the skin.- Doesn’t accentuate dry patches- Dewy finish- Average staying power- SPF 20- RRP: N/A in AUS, £8.99 in the UK, $9.99 in the US
L’Oreal True Match Lumi/Lumi Magique Foundation Review
L’Oreal annoyingly enough always decides to give the same product a different name in every country they are sold so this trades under a few different names. I had been wanting to try this foundation since it came out, but sadly I was sorely disappointed. I found this foundation drying, (not luminous at all) and I found that it really accentuated my dry patches which isn’t at all what I want. I feel this foundation might be better for those with combination skin who still want a slightly luminous look that isn’t overly matte.
- Good shade range- Light coverage- Drying- REALLY accentuates dry patches- Sets very quickly- Demi-matte finish (not very luminous, almost matte)- Staying power is poor, could be better.- Attractive bottle including a pump- SPF 20- RRP: $33.95 in AUS, £10.99 in the UK and $12.99 in the US
