Review of Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation by Christinaann5
Ok, id def give this a 5 but i have to say the shade range isnt so great, otherwise this would be probably one of my favorites... but it still is an amazing foundation!
The Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 hr Foundation (i also have the 16 hr foundation & it seems to be the same formula) can be found in most drugstores like CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens as well as in mass stores like Target & Walmart. The price will vary depending on your location as well as sales/dicounts/coupons. The price is generally around $5-7. I def suggests getting this on a good sale- doesnt it always make it better!
Ok, id give it a 5 if i wasnt so pale and 'Ivory' was alot lighter. But i love this foundation so much that i will mix a really light foundation with it just so i can wear it. I love the coverage and texture of this. Its smooth and creamy and blends right into my skin like no other! The coverage is great. Its def medium coverage and can be built up in areas that need a bit more coverage. This foundation coverages all my uneven skin as well as any redness or spots. If you have a really bad blemish you may need a tiny bit of concealer but this covers so well, you may not. The way i use it is more like a tinted moisturizer but it still covers everything i want it to. I dont use it alone so it changes the finish. I love that it stays on all day (i do use monistat or hard candy primer) i have normal to dry skin and this doesnt emphasize any fine lines pores or dry spots. It covered my discolorations & blemishes. It has a semi matte finish. Its not too matte nor too dewy, more like a satin finish but you can def top w/ your different powders to better suit your face needs.
The Rimmel 25 HR Lasting Finish Foundation comes in a great squeezable tube. The container has some stamping of the Logo/labeling and more information on the back. The shade name is located on the front bottom of the tube. The top twists on & off which is easy to use. The top is where the foundation sits upright (which i love since it allows you to use up all the foundation inside so no wasting) The tube is clear in a few spots so you can see how much you have used or got left. The tube is hard enough to travel with but flexible enough to squeeze out the last bit of foundation. I like this packaging better than a pump/jar container since you will not be able to get to it all like that but this, brilliant! this is my favorite packaging so far. I know, i like simple but effective & easy to use tubes, this is it!
Overall, i have really tried so many different drugstore foundations but i still LOVE this one. I love the creaminess and smooth texture & it blends so nicely. I just wish the color/shade range was way more extensive & we could all find a shade that matches or even close. I still have to mix w/ other foundations to pull off Ivory but its worth it to me. I love this. If you are more on the fair/light skin tone, try the new Rimmel Clean Finish foundation which is now one of my top favs for sure & it does have a few choices for my pale skin. I love it! and will def recommend this foundation Lasting Finish foundation is amazing & if you can find your match, get it! i love it & will probably repurchase over & over & pray they release my shade or close!
