Collection 2000 Colour Match Foundation

Recently I was noseying round Asda on my lunch and didn’t even know that my local Asda does makeup, seems that most of them are starting to do makeup in the supermarkets near me as Vivo has now finally hit (one of) my (3) local Tesco’s too. I love the Collection 2000 Cream Puff Lip Cream and I’ve heard great things about the Lasting Perfection concealer (still yet to try as I’ve not yet ran out of a ton of concealers!) but something made me want to buy some foundations that day..

Comparison to the Naturally Matte Foundation - L-R Naturally Matte, Colour Match

I don’t normally suit or like low end foundations but I wanted to see out of curiosity if there was a good, cheaper foundation that I could recommend for others. The first one I picked up was actually on offer, RRP £6, on sale for £4. It was the Colour Match foundation in shade 1 Ivory. I am very pale I’d say, so was a bit uncertain whether it would be a good colour match but overall it was quite a good match. It was quite a watery based liquid compared to the other foundation and blended quite easily. As always, it showed up a lot of my dry patches but for a cheap foundation, I found the consistency to be nice and thin which made it easy to blend and build up if need be.

It doesn’t last an awful long time which is expected in a lower end “drug store” foundation but overall, for the price if you’re on a budget I would definitely recommend this. It can get a bit oily by the end of the day and I don’t even have oily skin, so that may be one thing to watch out for. Nothing that can’t resolve!  

I will briefly mention the other foundation listed, the Naturally Matte was one of the worst, I’ve ever, ever used. BUT it was only £2...I don’t know what I was thinking even trying it if I’m honest, think it was a major impulse buy on a cheapy mission! It is so thick and I turned my hand over for quite a long period of time and it didn’t move, I used face wipes and hand wash to try and remove it, wow! The colour difference between the Colour Match and the Naturally Matte was extreme. The cheaper one was way more orange. How does that work when they’re both 1 Ivory by the same brand?! Anyway, I will be binning that when I get home now I have reminded myself! 

On another note, does anybody have any higher end foundations (especially for dry skin?)

 You can buy Colour Match foundation here at Boots for £5.99.
