Today I will be reviewing for you Rimmel London lasting finish 25 Hour Foundation with comfort serum.
The foundation claims:
-Instant perfect coverage that feels extra comfortable and lasts all day
– Blends flawlessly, seamlessly, instantly and easily into the skin
– Sweat, heat, humidity and transfer proof for up to 25 hours
I have been trying this foundation now for over a weak so I could test out all of these claims and give you the best possible review of the foundation. I purchased the foundation from my local Woolworths when they had there 1/2 price sale on all Rimmel London products, I ended up paying around $9 (bargain).
I applied the foundation with my Real Techniques buffing brush and my Chi Chi Cosmetics Make-Up blending sponge and both of them apply the foundation effortless and perfectly. They are right when they say the foundation blends flawlessly, seamlessly, instantly and easily into the skin! The foundation is full coverage so I prefer using the foundation sponge as it gives you a more natural and glowing look, but you get a better coverage using the buffing brush so it is personal preference which tool you use.
It claims it will last 25 hours but lets be honest who will be wearing foundation for 25 hours?! Not me that’s for sure!! I apply my foundation for work at 7.30am in the morning and don’t shower and take it off until at least 7.30pm at night. So I need a foundation that will last at least 12 hours…. I have to touch up this foundation up around lunchtime with a bit of powder just around my nose as it goes a little oily but I get that with most foundations. Apart from that when I get home from work the foundation is still looking flawless and hasn’t gone patchy, or slipped of my face. (I have normal-oily skin by the way) so I am incredibly impressed.
I went for a long walk to test if it its sweat proof and sadly it did move a little on my forehead nothing too noticeable though.. but everywhere else still looked perfect! The foundation does transfer a little as well. I was unable to test if it was humidity proof because I live in Tasmania and it has been frezzing!! 😛
Overall I am extremely impressed with this foundation… It is defiantly in my top 3 favorite foundations! It is extremely affordable, gives amazing coverage while still looking natural and healthy. The lasting power defiantly impressed me as well. I would recommend this foundation!
Thanks for reading,
