I'm writing this review after a full day of wearing this foundation. I gave this a 3 lippies but it's more like ... 3.5.I decided to pick this foundation up after my go-to Revlon Colorstay jacked up its prices and I needed a cheaper alternative. As an oily-skinned gal, the Colorstay has always been good to me and long-lasting like it claims. Okay so let's start on this foundation ... Let me just say, that the finish that I observed right after application is so beautiful - my skin looks so dewy and moisturized. Not sure what it is about the formula that achieves this (maybe the Comfort Serum?) but yeah, it was very flattering. It was also medium-full coverage which is what I look for to cover my post-acne marks. I would say the coverage to comparable to the Colorstay. After I set it with powder, it looked more mattified and I was off to go on about my day and test this "25 hour" claim (tall order, Rimmel). It looked fine after 3.5-4 hours; the beautiful finish that I observed before was slipping a little. After about 6-7 hours, I got in my car after my school day & yikes ... the cheek area beside my nose looked like oil slicks; tip of my nose was shiny, and generally my T-zone area was pretty shiny. But I did see that the staying power was not bad - the foundation wasn't slipping off my face or anything. I suspect that for oilier skin types, this stuff would transfer onto clothing and other things. If I rub the foundation, it felt greasy. I don't know if I can classify this as a matte foundation at all suited for oilier skin types. Would I recommend it? Yeah, for people that don't get as oily as I do. Or for people with oily skin, just blot/set throughout the day and it should work for you. Like I said, the finish was very nice and maybe I will continue to give this a try in the future because the maintenance might worth the finish that it provides me.

Never been huge fan of drugstore foundation. ...and especially rimmel...it was a cheap brand I used as a kid as I only had limited funds! But its become popular and a lot of youtubers review this make up.after buying the wake me up foundation and loving it (see my review on that foundation)....I decided I'd try this fuller coverage and longer wearing foundation. ...as I do love full coverage due to acne scarring etc....SORRY BUT I HATE THIS FOUNDATION! why....its thick...which would be ok if it blended well...it takes ages to dry and is so sticky...leaving skin tacky for ages...you'd have to put a decent layer of powder on to try and dry it....also...THIS IS NOT FULL COVERAGE! its light and can be built up too medium. ...but blending it is a challenge! Also I gave it a good chance...and after two days I had two pimples. .which this foundation did not cover ....did this foundation cause my two new friends????? I'd say yes....as I only got them after wearing this make up.....yet the rimmel wake me up was great abd actually helped my skin....overall this may be great for some but not for all....I have dryish skin...think this may be suited to oily combination skin types....as mines dryer I prefer the wake me up ....wake me up isn't full coverage either but I only need full coverage on my chin area.....this 25 hour foundation drys fast but stays sticky. ...not full cover...medium at best....plus side. ...colours are great. ..same as wake me up shades...5/10.....I don't hate rimmel just hate this sticky stuff!but gave it 5 as its got a pump and love a glass bottle ;)

As I was putting it on for the first time I noticed three things: 1) it does have a smell to it. Not bad, but I do think it may be a bit strong for some, 2) it looked like it was going to be too light for me at first (shade 100 Ivory), but as I was blending it seemed as though it oxidized a bit, and 3) it felt really tacky, up until I put on some powder a few minutes later. If you can get passed those three things I think you may really enjoy this foundation. It gave pretty amazing coverage and actually lasted me a full day (with some blotting every few hours since my skin is excessively oily). Still a pleasant surprise coming from a $6 foundation.

Used the old version in the tube And now using this new version in the glass bottle. I've tried them all or at least I feel like I have. Just recently bought EL DW which I love but I love thIs product better. 56 years old, not a lot of wrinkles, take care of my skin, but Have a lot of hyper pigmentation. What can I say but I love it!!!!! For reference, I'm a Mac NW25, ELDW pebble, and wear this in classic beige.

I have oily skin and this foundation makes me look drier on the face which had me confused, I thought it was the primer I was using (Insta-blur) I tried smash box hydration primer - worked well on my nose and face except from my chin and forehead which still looked very dry! However, I like how thick this foundation is, I would suggest to use an egg sponge or beauty blender, you literally only need less then 2 squirts for a full coverage face (followed by concealer)

I really don't know how I feel about this product. It looks fine and covers pretty well but it feels really heavy and STICKY. I typically don't like to set my whole face with a powder if I don't have to (like when I use longwear foundations) but I absolutely have to set this with a good powder cause the stickiness does not go away after just a short time like most foundations, it stays so it's uncomfortable and makes anything on top of it go patchy and muddy. that being said, once I set it with a powder it's absolutely fine and it doesn't look bad or mess with any products I layer on top. It does last the 15 hours it claims and doesn't LOOK too heavy or cake despite it feeling that way. Idk, it's a nice products and is a nice full coverage foundation for it being a cheaply priced drug store item but not my fav, not HG material. Nice packaging as well I might add (it really does matter lol)

Tried this after hearing good reviews by some YouTube gurus and I have to agree with them. Great product at a great price. More over EL double wear!

I am really happy with this foundation! I had heard great things about it so I couldn't wait to try this. When I first went to but this, the shop had none of the shade 'Ivory' which is the shade I would have picked as I'm quite pale. However I picked up 'True Ivory' as it looked almost identical to Ivory in the bottle. I absolutely loved te foundation however the shade was too dark for me so I went to get 'Ivory' a week later and they actually had the shade. I have to say there is quite a big difference between the two shades so if you are quite pale, don't get true Ivory even if there are no bottles of Ivory left. Ivory is a great match for my skin! What I love about this foundation is it is medium-full coverage (which is good for me as I have mild acne and redness) but still somehow manages to look very healthy and glory which I love! Therefore It looks really natural. It stays put all day, as long as you need it to and the price is fantastic! It's half the price of the foundation I used to buy (Revlon Colourstay) but so much more convenient because this foundation has a pump glass bottle! I don't think I can praise this foundation highly enough, and I definitely recommend giving it a try if you want a good high coverage foundation!

Pretty impressed with this foundation. Bought in in the lightest shade, Ivory, and was a bit dubious after swatching it on my hand as it looked quite orange. Im quite pale with dry skin, so I wasn't sure how this would work. I wouldn't say it's ideal for dry skin as it dries to a matte finish, but with moisturize underneath you can make it work. After applying it, it seemed to match my skin tone pretty well so I was happy with that. I applied it after putting on my moisturiser, and initially it felt quite heavy and a bit sticky on my skin, like it was just sitting on top. The coverage is medium-full, which suits me well. Covered up the redness on my cheeks and evened out my skin tone. It lasts a good few hours as well which is a plus.Overall a good foundation, perfect for nights out and days where you need a bit more coverage.
