Review | Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation

Hey Everyone!

I've been meaning to post about this foundation for a while, as I actually bought it a few months ago and have been using it since, but never actually got around to it, so with the new year comes good posting habits including frequent reviews (I am having deja vu just now, I feel like I've said that before!
I was initially attracted to this because of the affordable price and the fact that my current foundation was very nearly finished. Unlike with my usual makeup purchases, I had not seen many reviews on this, but in my opinion it deserves as much credit as other Rimmel foundations. 

It has a really nice consistency, very smooth and sinks into the skin easily, giving a medium coverage and feeling light on the skin. It is a perfect formulation for my normal/dry skin. Since using this I realised my Bourjois Flower Perfection had actually been drying my skin out. What is also great about this is that it really lives up to its 'transfer proof' claims and stays intact all day (I've not put it to the 25 hour test though as, let's face it, I need sleep!)

Its exactly what I need; its brightening, gives me an ideal coverage and is super affordable. It has lasted me around three months, which is pretty good, and I will definitely be considering repurchasing this in future!

Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation is available in Superdrug or Boots for £6.99.

Have you tried this? What are your thoughts?

    1. Me too, from what I've tried Rimmel is slightly better than other raved about brands like Maybelline, especially for foundation! Oh I'll google that as I want to try more Rimmel foundations! x

  3. I wish the 25 hour foundations came with a pump in the US! I would loved this foundation if it did.
