Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation-Review
Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation I can truly say is by far one of my top favourites and I would also compare it too high end foundations. The shade I have it in is 100 Ivory. This foundation is perfect for people with dry/Normal Skins as the consistency is smooth and dewy and doesn’t at all look powdery on your face.
Now let me talk about the packaging first, as I believe attraction is a key thing while shopping, if it looks good I’ll buy it. The actual container is made of glass which is good as it doesn’t make it look cheap and tacky. However, the downside to that is if you accidently drop it, it could break. (I dropped it twice so far but nothing happened :P ) The pump and the lid are made of plastic.
In the UK this sells at around £7.99 which is very affordable for such a great foundation. I’m sure you could also get it in many different countries or online shops.
This product claims ‘Sweat, heat, humidity and transfer proof for up to 25 hours. Enriched with a revitalizing mineral complex and moisturizing aqua primer. Skin feels energized and hydrated all day’.
I agree with the fact that it is transfer proof and it makes your skin feel energized and fresh but it does not at all last 25 hours. Personally, it has lasted me many hours compared to so many foundations even the MAC face and body didn’t last as long as this one did. However, during the hot humid days it did make me quite sweaty but it still wasn’t exactly dripping off my face which is a good thing I like about it.
This foundation is also very light weight and once applied and settled into the skin it doesn’t even feel like you are wearing anything. Therefore, it gives an instant natural look.
OH and I forgot the most important thing as to why I LOVE this foundation, it has GREATTTT COVERAGE. Whether you’ve got uneven skin, a pimple, blackheads or a blemish it really does cover them up without looking like a badly done job.
Another thing that I’ve seen other people do is powder after using this foundation, this would be good if you have oily skin but since I don’t I wouldn’t really know. I just use the foundation as it is and sometimes just spray it with Body Shops Vitamin E face mist.
Top 5 Reasons why you should buy this product-
2- Light weight and natural looking
3- Great if you’ve got dry or normal skin
4- Great coverage
5- Lasts quite a long time ( but just not as long as 25 hours)
Reasons that you might not like it-
1- If you live in a humid or a really hot country it might make you feel sweaty
2- Doesn’t last the amount of hours it says on the bottle
Well that’s all I can say negative about this product but other then that I’d say it’s a nice product. You should definitely go check this product out as I’m sure you would like it.
Rating: 4/5 :D
