Review of Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation by Miaoudeminou
I just got this but the color's off on me. It matched perfectly in the store but in sunlight it's slightly a tan-pink (if that makes sense). I'm just so sad that drug store foundations are either pink or orange. I have yellow undertones and everything looks so wrong on me. The only brand, I've discovered, that doesn't do this as bad is CoverGirl.
1/22/12 Update: Did they reformulate this? It seems thinner, yet the coverage is better, and the colors are more natural. I re-bought this in 100 and it matches my skin to a T. Typically with foundations my face is pink and my neck is a pale yellow. This did not do that. Of course I had to use concealer with this but I was looking for a light weight and light coverage foundations (just wanted to cover up redness & some large pores). This did better than I expected. I work it to work twice and it did not transfer onto a white coat I was wearing nor did it melt off. The only time it did come off was when I was sweating and I went to pat my face with a tissue (still barely any came off). This lasted all day and left me looking fabulous by the end of it. I almost looked as good as when I first applied this. Also this is a hard product to get to look cakey! Most, if not all, drugstore foundations cake on me and this didn't. You really have to layer it on to get it to do that. Over all I'd truly recommend this to women who are at least an NW15 or darker. Lighter than that and this make-up will be too dark. If Rimmel could come out with lighter colors to this foundation, then I'd say it could be a HG item for all.
2/29/12 update: I have since stopped using this. I kept it a 3 'cause I know others could use this as it is nice but doesn't work for me. I am very acne prone and I started breaking out. Not only that but the color was a bit darker and in the pink range. I think I look stupid with make-up that doesn't match. I've since moved on to other foundations.
