I finally got to try out the The Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25 Hour foundation after about a couple of weeks of it just roaming around my makeup kit.
Going back to a couple of weeks ago, i was determinate to find a foundation that would offer me both : Quality and a great price. After hours of search (yes! hours, when it comes to make up, i like taking my time. Reading ingredients, and pretty much any info i might find in the packaging) Right next to the Rimmel Stay Matte powder foundation, which i have been wanting to try for the longest time, there it was... It comes in six different shades and even though it was extremely easy for me to find my perfect match ( I wear a 200/ Soft Beige) I do believe, they r lacking in darker/deeper tones.
I was definitely sold after i read that it was Sweat, heat and humidity proof for up to 25 hours! And that it was "enriched with a revitalizing mineral complex and moisturizing aqua primer, making the skin feel energized and hydrated all day"
To that last statement i can give my word that it is totally true, I could not believe how great my skin felt after I applied it! This foundation is soooo light, It did not feel like I had anything on! My skin was definitely breathing through it. The coverage was great for a day time/ everyday foundation, it's not full coverage , and it you have blemishes like I did, the first time I tried it, they will start peaking through in with in a few hours, for me it was around four hours but take in consideration that even though I was out and about, it was only 36-39 * F out!
I am really happy with The overall look of this product once applied, my face didn't look or feel cakey , nor shiny not even at the end of day ( 9 hours after application!! ) . It didn't sink into my fine lines/expression lines until after the first 4 hours but it was not anything crazy just a tiny little bit, like I said above at the end of the day it was looking great and I did not once retouched my makeup that day.
I think this is a great foundation, at a great price (it only goes for $7.49) and will definitely be a staple in my kit for now on!!
