This was surprisingly a really good foundation. I was surprised at the consistency, which is actually more like a cream than a liquid. The applicator is just stupid, however. This foundation looked well on, and lasted for quite a few hours. It did cover my pores well, although not as 100% as promised on the bottle. I would not reccomend this product to those with oily skin, as I can definitely see the "greaseball" effect happening with this foundation. But for those with normal to dry skin, I think this would be perfect! The only other problem I have with this foundation, and with Rimmel foundations in general, is they are quite dark. I use the lightest shade, and it is still a bit dark for me. So beware to those with really porcelain skin, as you will probably not find a match. Otherwise, a good foundation, especially for the price!

Feels thick when u try to spread it out so you have to be quick. There arent many color choices for darker skin tones the darkest one was the closest to my shade. It doesnt make my face too shiny and the spatula is good because if you put it upside down it wont move.

This is the first Rimmel product I've ever tried. The price point has always turned me off...less than $4 for a foundation? Must be crap, right? Well, I've tried lots of foundations, high and low end, and this is one of my favorites! I purchased the lightest shade and it looks very natural on my NC10-15 skin. I adore the convenience of the spatula in the cap. I just slap some on, blend it in with a flat foundation brush and top with powder for a flawless look. It doesn't take much to get good coverage and it feels nice and light on my skin. The color is surprisingly neutral. Most foundations are too pink or yellow on my very fair skin, but this is just about perfect. Lastly, it doesn't break me out! Yay! I will definitely be repurchasing this and looking into other Rimmel products as well!

At first I loved this product...but after about a week I noticed it turning orange around my hair and cheek line...sooooo disappointed!!!! This foundation could have easily been my favourite, the coverage is excellent without being thick. You have to blend quickly but I hardly need any cover up after. It actually made my skin look flawless, I received compliments and you could hardly see my pores. Not sure why itís now turning orange but I can no longer use it during the day, I will finish the bottle but only at night. If it wasn't for the turning orange this product would have gotten a 5 for sure and I would be buying again...and I didn't give it a 1 because it really does work great (minus the orange)...

Overall, this is a pretty great product if you don't have sensitive skin. It is really thick, but it goes on feeling super light while giving you good, even coverage. Poreless? Not exactly, but pretty darn good for a 3 dollar foundation. I love that it's fragrance free, too. This doesn't sweat off on me either on hot summer days if I set it with powder. The only con for me is if I use this foundation regularly, I tend to break out. I really wouldn't say this is a bad product because of that, as I have super sensitive skin, so I would only take note of that if you have fairly sensitive skin. I just tend to alternate between this and a tinted moisturizer, and I never break out that way using it half of the time. Definitely worth giving a try.

Love the texture, color match and feel of this but eventually it oxydized on me and basically wore off within a few hours. Would not repurchase :(

I bought this at walmart after seeing it only cost 3 DOLLARS! THREE!! 3! only three dollars and it claims it makes you
"look 100% poreless"
with "Vitamins A & E".
"Fragrance free and dematologist tested".
it is also :lightweight for a clean, fresh finish"
now for the truth. this comes in a class bottle. the cap of it actually comes with a neat spatula on it so u get the RIGHT amount of foundation. though it isnt a pump, its the next best thing. the formula is SOOOOOOO thick, like it doesnt run. the spatula in the cap actually has holes in it and the foundation doesnt run ! how crazy huh? anyways the blends well, its actually makes pores almost invisible! its is about a medium - full coverage. no smell. It however is NOT lightweight. it feels extremely heavy on my skin, and looks a tad cakey. no natural finish here. and the staying power is pathetic. maybe after 2 hours, im seeing patches gone, oils seeping from my nose...consider that i have dry skin lol. anyways i play on getting it maybe in the future since it is 3 dollars. maybe this is going to be my grocery shopping foundation haha

Got this at Walmart- very inexpensive with a coupon. I do like the finish and nice color match--however, this just didn't last all day on me. I have combo-oily skin. I'll reach for this when I don't require all day wear, not quite sure if I would buy it again. You must work quickly with this foundation. I use my fingers first, all over then go over areas (nose and cheeks) with a Sigma flat top kabuki and stipple. Looks like your skin- but better!

Is it the Messiah of foundations? Nyah. Is it my new everyday liquid foundation? Yep yep. I'm all for anything that includes good-for-your-skin extras (A, E, and antioxidants in this case). Poreless? Well, no, but pretty close, which is fantastic for a drugstore brand. 130 True Ivory gave my oily fair skin a touch of color and a dewy but manageable complexion. To my pleasant surprise, a couple of smaller blemishes all but vanished beneath it without any concealer or primer, and my current biggie (which has nestled itself smack in the middle of my forehead, thankyouverymuch) was so well covered that just a smidge of concealer and a fingerful of powder successfully hid it. It does tend to wane a bit over the course of the day, but not so much anyone but the wearer will notice, and I also live in Houston, the city whose weather seeks to annihilate all makeup, so that's also very impressive. No smell, not cakey unless YOU cake it on (and why, a little goes a long way for a natural look), and a nice-sized bottle's worth for under $4 at Walmart. As for the spatula that some people seem weirded out by, idk why they put that in there. I use it to dab the liquid direct onto my skin AFTER washing, toner, and moisturizer/sunscreen, and then use my fingers to blend. Not 100% sanitary, but way better than my usual routine of straight from the bottle to my clean fingertips.

AWFUL. It was cake-y and it wore off in less than an hour. I wish i could post a picture to show how disgusting it looked. Heading back to Wal-Mart to return it & buy Revlon.

I purchased 120 Ivory the lightest shade available and it's a good match to my complexion (MAC NC15). The formula is thick and mousse like, but blends easily into the skin. Provides light to medium coverage and sets to a satiny-matte finish. In terms of providing a "100%" poreless finish I think that is quite far fetched in the claims. It does do a decent job of concealing, but alone it does start to sink into pores within a few hours. When I trialled the foundation with different primers I found it preformed better, looked smoother, and didn't sink into pores till the 8 to 9 hour mark of wear. Around that time too, I noticed it started to oxidize and turn slightly orange, plus start to melt and look cakey/splotchy. I plan to use this up and wear it on days I'm running errands and don't require a more long wearing foundation, but I doubt I would repurchase.

Prob. one of my fav. foundations. Has thick texture so it doesn't run off the back of my hand, but doesn't feel cakey or thick on the skin. I apply with my fingers if in a rush, but mostly with a sponge or flat top brush. Has Med. coverage, but is buildable, evens out my skin tone nicely and doesn't rub off on everything. Covers the pores on my nose w/out using a primer. I like the spatula incl. although would have preferred a pump but is prob. to thick for that. Almost like a gel and mousse combined if that makes sense. I have warm Ivory and Natural Ivory and both are a good color match. Oh and did I mention the price is unbeatable. 4 dollars w/ tax at Walmart.

I bought this at Wal Mart for about three dollars in the color 120 Ivory. It is a pretty good color match for me (NC15). The cap actually has a spatula attached to it, and I find it very easy to get the right amount of product out of the container to cover my entire face and jawline with just one scoop into the product. My only concern is that it is not very sanitary to dip a spatula into the bottle and place it on my (clean) hands or face. Also, when the product gets low, I'll have to pour it out anyway. The texture is pretty thick, but it applies really nicely and evenly, and it never looks cakey on my skin. I use a flat foundation brush to apply this. I put it on the back of my hand and dot it on my face, then use the brush to blend/spread. The packaging does not lie about making skin appear poreless. The finish is slightly dewy, but it's a medium to full coverage, and I find that when I use this I don't really need concealer. It seems like it would feel heavy on the skin, but it feels very light to me, and it sets well: I never feel the need to set it with powder (but I do have dry skin). For three dollars and some change, this is a really, really good drugstore foundation similar to Revlon ColorStay just slightly more dewy and lighter-feeling (and obviously much cheaper). I will most likely repurchase this

Great drugstore foundation, one of the best that I've tried. I use 120 Ivory and it's a nice match for NC15, coverage is light-medium, best part is the spatula that comes in the bottle, it's a nice different applicator, I wish more foundations had it.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Acne-prone, Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Hazel
ugh..this stuff is just heavy.
heavy heavy heavy.
i guess it could be good for stage makeup?
i didn't like it at all...it was just gross.
yeah you are nearly poreless for a while..but it feels like you have an inch thick layer of it on, no matter how sparsely you use it!
and it is really spotty if you do only use a little...not blendable at all.
just to get use out of it..i use it as a concealer, but not often.
the one thing i did like was the paddle thing inside the bottle, because most often glass bottles are terrible foundation bottles because you can never get all the product out of it. i really liked they added the paddle, it'll help you use ever bit of product.

I've only had this foundation for a day and I friggen love it! I never expected to love a drugstore foundation so much. It was like the time I fell in love with my revlon photo ready. So, I purchased my Rimmel Clean Finish foundation at walmart for around $4. I was really surprised at how cheap it was, it's a pretty good deal. I got in the shade 340 Nude which I thought was a shade to light but it matched me perfectly. It does oxidize on me but not too bad, it balances out. (For reference, i'm mac NC 30-35. I really like the finish, it's not overly matte. It's like a soft matte almost a satin finish. It has a sheer to medium coverage which is fine for me. I tried it today without concealer and it seemed fine to me. It lasted me throughout school so around 6 hours? keep in mind, I have combo skin. Dry around my chin, middle of my forehead and around the nose. I do get a little oily in my t-zone. Like most foundations, it disappeared around my nose first. But, in other areas it stayed on pretty well. It does have a certain smell to it, it kinda smells like my revlon photo ready.
Overall, I would re-purchase it but it's not something I'd wanna go back and buy right away once I run out. It's nice to have but not a must have. It has a nice, creamy, thick texture. But it feels lightweight on the skin. For around 4 bucks, it's a good deal. I also like the little spatula applicator it has, very unique. I would recommend it to people, it's a good cheap alternative :)

I've been trying to use this for 6 weeks or more and the best I can say for it is meh. The color selection isn't great--I chose the lightest color and it's still too dark and I'm not extremely pale either. It does oxidize. The finish leaves something to be desired and Rimmel should definitely take "Look 100% poreless" off the bottle. Again, meh.

I have been using this out for close to 2 months. I wanted to give it a fair chance and my decision is I wouldn't buy it again.
The pros to this foundation are price, no fragrance and good lasting power.
The cons: No matter how good a match you think you get, the foundation darkens as it drys, by a good shade or so. It also runs just a bit pink even with the warm Ivory shade I chose.
This also dries fast, way too fast to do more than a small section of your face at a time. It is very matte, too much so for me.
The spatula is ok, but I can't see being able to get all of the product out of the bottle with it, it's too thick to tap out. A lot of product will be wasted. The plastic squeeze tube would be much better.
There are better Rimmel fondations.

I bought this product on a whim. For about four dollars, why not? I have yellow undertones and combination skin (thought my Tzone gets extremely oily) and clean finish foundation seemed like an okay fit. It did not break me out (I am very acne prone and vulnerable to cystic acne on my chin).
-very light on skin
-does not feel heavy
-nice spatula to scoop product out
-doesn't make me break out(super plus)
-keeps my t zone in control for a few hours
-Coverage not as full as I would have liked
-begins to oxidize a bit
Overall I do like this foundation. I haven't found a foundation yet that truly keeps my t zone nice and matte throughout the day but clean finish foundation lived up to my expectation. It's cheap, has high claims and didnt break me out. Probably would buy this again if I don't find something else to mattify my oily t zone
EDIT: I was rushing out of the house and grabbed this foundation by accident, so i was forced to use this on a workday. I liked it at first, but toward the end of the day, my face was practically melting! The foundation wore off, and literally slipped off my face, so it was barely on me anymore. With this, I had to change the rating to a 2 out of 5. Definitely not a foundation for special occasions or a long day at work. I would wear this while running an errand to the store, but thats probably it.

HOLY GRAIL STATUS!!!! yes i am that excited!! i have finally found a foundation that delivers everything ive been searching years and spending or wasting tons of money for...Rimmel Clean Finish, where have you been my whole life? I am extremely extremely pale w/ pink undertones and I have this in the lightest shade sold (ivory 120) and although its not an exact match, its the best so far. i do mix in a few dabs of my loreal true match c1 alabaster to get a more pink undertone to this but sometimes i realize i may not have to.,. i have only used this a few times but i will def update once i get thru it a bit more but for now i just ran to walmart to pick up a backup bc with most things i find that are HG, they soon run out or are discontinued so i ran there :).. Clean Finish is great for my normal to dry skin (since its a harsh winter here in PA, i have very dry skin but ive been moisturizing like crazy so its getting a bit better) this fndt works great for my skin type. The consistency is unlike any other ive tried, maybe a bit like Covergirl Tru Blend but a tiny bit thicker..its like a cross between a mousse and a liquid..ITS PERFECT!! it comes in a glass jar with 1 fl oz and whats neat is the spatula that is attached to the twist on lid.. Its awesome for scooping out onto back of my hand or onto a palette to prevent contamination. the spatula is awesome. i love how im not wasting a whole bunch of product since there isnt a pump. so it does make up for it.. Now i find w/ a few dabs all over my face & a few spritzes of my homemade fix plus, it blends so easily w/ either my hands, elf powder brush (or a top flat brush), a reg fndt brush..etc.. i dont see how this wouldnt apply good with any method but to each its own so find a technique that works for you since everyones skin is different & i know i like using my fingers or elf studio powder. I love the consistency and how it blends smoothly. (i do use a primer, monistat or hard candy are my favs) i do find it can dry after a few mins so if you do not have a misting spray, then u may wanna work in sections to help ensure even coverage and better blending. I love the finish, its more on the natural to dewy finish but can def be set to a matte finish w/ a setting powder. I find this stays put thru my 8hr work day which says alot bc i work in a hot steamy kitchen but has also lasted me around 10 hrs. when i come home i realize it still looks perfect, it didnt disappear or oxidize. just so nice.. I love the finish it gives. I have tested w/out primer & still at least 8-9 hrs or more. And you dont have to use alot of fndt, a little goes the distance,, i use about a pea size or a bit more. it feels so nice on the skin.. doesnt feel heavy or cakey. has vitamins & does minimize my large pores. The bestest part of all> $3.97 at walmart! yes not even $4 and the bottle will last me a long time! i had a $1 offcoupon which made it that much better. so i will update w/more info but rite now, RIMMEL CLEAN FINISH IS MY HOLY GRAIL foundation & i cant go w/out it! so affordable & has everything i want in a foundation! hallejuah!!!
at last, Ive found a foundation that Im truly in love with and I reach for everyday. i have a few open foundations in my rotation and i normally debate between a few being impressed with some but they were always dark and then some werent exactly what i was looking for but this foundation is exactly what i love in a foundation- lightweight yet creamy, light to medium coverage without looking cakey or gross as well as always too dark, it never oxidizes nor does it settle in to fine lines or fade. it stays put and fresh throughout the day. it looks great. i do have noticable pores & this may not make em all disappear but as the great Wayne Goss makeup artist says you dont want to cover every pore since it looks weird so this is fabulous & thanks to Rimmel for making a shade that matches my crazy pale skin! ive bought a backup even though with every day use Ive only made it a tiny bit down the bottle, theres so much left. its great you only need a few dots on your face & it spreads out like butter!
