Rimmel released a new foundation a while back called Lasting Finish 25 hour foundation.
I dont own many low end foundations as I tend to buy more expensive ones for some unknown reason.
I decided to give this a go after spotting it in my local pharmacy for an introductory price of €6.25
What Rimmel say:
Rimmel London introduces Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation, our first foundation that is sweat, heat, humidity and transfer-proof for up to a full 25 hours.
What I say:
I put this foundation on at 10am and went for a 10k walk with my friend. Later that day I went to work and got home at 10pm. Thats 12 hours of wearing the foundation, to be honest I can never see myself wearing make up for 25 hours as I will always take it all off before I go to bed. Yes even after a night out with plenty of alcohol in my system. I would say that the foundation is a medium coverage but very buildable.
When I got home I noticed that my make up still looked flawless and it wasnt shiny which it normally is. When I wear Estee Lauder it tends to wear off by the end of the day especially on my nose and chin.
I was shocked at how well it lasted. I expected it to make me break out but today is day 5 of me wearing the foundation and not one blemish in sight.
Today I went and picked up another bottle in a lighter shade for when Im not wearing fake tan.
Of course there is a downside, there is a very small selection of shades. My pharmacy only had 5. I checked online and they actually have 11. The lightest colour Ivory isn't light enough for pale Irish skin and the darkest colour Natural Beige isn't dark enough.
All that aside I still rate this foundation 5/5 for the amazing durability. I think I will get another few shades for my kit.
Hope this review was helpful and do let me know if you have tried this.
