This is the worst ds foundation I have bought in a long time! I got warm sand because it was the lighest shade with yellow undertones. I discovered what oxidize finally means! My face turned an ompa lompa orange, I kid not. It also looked really cakey and my pores looked huge. Yikes! Kinda bummed out because I'd read so many good reviews and at such dirt cheap price:( This foundation might work for someone who has minimal skin problems and maybe pink undertoned?
I am 43 years old and up until now, have NEVER found a foundation that was the holy grail for me...until now! I've tried high-end and cheap brands and nothing ever looked right...i've thrown out several dozens of bottles over the years. Either the colors were wrong, they looked cakey or made me break out. My daughter purchased a bottle of Rimmel Clean Finish at Walmart for less than 4 bucks and didnt like the color and offered it to me so I tried it, not expecting it to be any good and I was shocked then thrilled with it. It went on smoothly and didnt feel cakey. It evens out my skin tone and brightens my complexion and I dont get that cakey look around my nostrils like other products give me. This is just what I have always wanted, a foundation that gives me a naturally smooth look without looking like I am wearing it. You have to look hard to see that I have it on, yet the improvement in the way my skin looks is definitely noticeable. I'm a happy girl!
This will be a staple in my makeup bag from now on. I tried this on a whim and was in a lot of doubt since I'm pretty fair-skinned with combination type skin it's always hard to find a foundation that works for me (and matches). I use this with Rimmel Fix & Perfect primer. After letting the primer sit on my face and absorb for 5 minutes I put this foundation on, it has a cool little stick applicator attached to the lid that makes it easy to apply (no more yucky sponges) and it looks flawless. Matches my skin, and doesn't leave streaks. I've been using this for 3 weeks now and my skin isn't anymore oily so that's a huge plus. Love this stuff!
I LOVE this product!!!
To start, it lives up to its name- It is lightweight, the skin does look 100% poreless, and the vitamins and antioxidants in it even helped out my overal skin appearance over time!
One good tip when using this product is to moisturize with your everyday moisturizer first, let that sit for 5-10 minutes, and THEN apply the foundation. I found that it blended better when I did that(:
The price is amazing- under $4.00 and a lot of product. There's also a really handy and cute "scoop" attached to the lid to help get the product out.
You don't need to much to use- it has great coverage! The finished result is overal pretty matte. I definitely recomend this for any skin type!
Two words: THIS OXIDIZES. I love the finish, but the coverage is meh and it makes me look orange. I am too pale to pull off orange. It feels great going onto the skin, but unfortunately even the lightest color was too dark for me and I most definitely will not be repurchasing. This product is cheap, and I can see why.
I am amazed that such an inexpensive product follows through on its promises! It was less than $5.00 and there is a large amount. I wanted to replace expensive department store brands and just thought I would give it a try. The dry down is very fast and the finish is smooth and your pores do appear to be diminished. The surface is matte, so if you want a glow or a moisturized look this may not work for you. I found the coverage to be good. I have problems with reddish skin and nothing covers it completely. This does a fairly good job especially when you consider that it lasts and doesn't look caked on.
I love this foundation, especially for the price! I use this as my everyday light coverage foundation and it's perfect. It lasts a long time considering that the consistency is not thick at all! I wear natural ivory (I think) and its super SUPER easy to blend and doesn't dry up to quickly. I have an oily t-zone and I can have this right around my nose and it never feels greasy even after several hours. I highly recommend this for a lighter feel. I gave it four lippies instead of five because it doesn't cover my redness completely but does a pretty good job!
I like this foundation. It's easy to use and does reduce the size of my pores, if not poreless!
I use my fingertips to apply it, I haven't tried with a brush yet. It's a creamy formula that is blendable and creamy. No need to set it with a powder, in my opinion. It lasts through my entire school day (even through about an hour of Phys.Ed) and not a thing if wrong with it! It makes my skin soft and smooth. It does not feel heavy on the skin. Medium coverage.
The packaging is unique, it is a bottle with a spatula- which I can imagine would be easy to get the last bits of the product out. I still have a lot of it and I use it at least 4x a week and I'm on my 4th month.
This product is really cheap compared to others. I got mine for about $5 at Wal-mart and it is great quality!
If it has less than a 70% approval rating on MUA, I love it lmao. NO SILICONES. NO SILICONES. NO SILICONES! !!!!!! I could shout it from every roof top when I actually discover a drugstore foundation whose top 3 ingredients are not silicones. I can't use foundations with 'cones and during a time when it was getting next to impossible to find a drugstore one without one, Rimmel swoops in and introduces Clean Finish.
I will be so sad if this ever gets discontinued (and let's face it, it will. Because everything I love gets discontinued.) It doesn't break me out, it doesn't make me look greasy, it covers well... can be sheered out or built up, has this nice little applicator so you aren't pounding a bottle against your hands to get any product out, and has a wide color selection of warmer, cooler and neutral shades. Oh annnnnnnd it's like $4-5 bucks a bottle. How can you beat it? You can't. I feel like yelling when talking about this foundation, that's how happy it makes me.
This stuff is impressive!
With a couple coats, this foundation actually diminishes the appearance of your pores :)
I love the spatula and the consistency of this formula. It's different but great. It's NOT heavy at all and it feels CLEAN just like it says.
I do not feel greasy nor dry. I really am impressed with this stuff. I gave it 4 lippies because coverage is not extremely flawless but definitely good enough :) My face looks and feels smooth and clean. The True Ivory cover is an exact match for my complexion! Awesome! Would buy again and I do recommend.
*I am a bare minerals fan. When I'm on an extreme budget (even though this isn't minerals) I'll grab this one! Thanks.
