Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation

Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation

Hello my Stylish Bows. Here I am again with another Rimmel product review, I promise soon I will write a review on another brand but for today I would like to talk about this foundation.

This product comes 6 shades: 
True Ivory
Soft Beige
Classic Beige
True Beige
True Nude
Natural Beige
I purchased the lightest shade, 100 Ivory, from Boots for £6.99 which is a 30ml bottle. I was actually quite disappointed when seeing this product, that all the shades where quite dark but I still decided to give it a try.
The product promises to stay on for 25 hours, includes a moisterizing Aqua Primer, and Boasts the ability to keep skin feeling energized and hydrated all day. These are big promises to keep, but I must admit that it does a superb job of it. When wearing this my skin felt so soft, and it applied smoothly and stayed in place for the duration of the day. The coverage of this is about medium, but it is easy to apply more product without that overdone, caky look if you prefer a stronger coverage. My biggest fault with this is that it was slightly dark for my skin, it also does not include an SPF which I think is very important. Luckily, I found that by mixing this product with a small amount of my Maybelline BB cream, it lightened the colour enough to match and also then had an SPF.

This Product has a pump, which is always great as no pouring onto the back of my hand is required. It also does not flow too fast, minimizing waste and helps the product last longer if you only need a light coverage. The scent of this foundation, is actually quite natural and soft and reminds me of many moisturisers I have used in the past.

As you can see above, it does blend into the skin well and gives an even, smooth finish.

That's all from me.
