Rimmel Lasting Finish 25HR Breathable Foundation

We love it when a drugstore brand performs as well as high end right? Rimmel  does it with their new Lasting Finish 25HR Breathable Foundation.

This new foundation is creamy and blends well. It is a thicker formula so you need to work it in Just a bit. It feels very comfortable  and light on skin,  not heavy or cakey. 

Coverage is medium and for me it covered all that I needed with the exception of under eye area . I prefer good coverage leaning towards full and this worked well. It is  slightly buildable  and added layers don't look overdone. I use 2 layers to get the coverage I like.

The finish is satin . It's not overly dewy but not matte.  There is no shimmer, or glow but skin does look perfected and softened. It's lightly moisturizing ( with glycerin but no oils in the ingredients) and on my combo to slightly dry skin it's been great. I've worn it every day for a week without a lot of oil breakthrough on the T Zone except for a little on my nose. A midday powder touch up was all I needed.

The foundation lasted all day into evening and can I tell you how nice that is? I can melt off makeup far too easily so I'm always on the lookout for something that makes at least most of the day.  By the time I got home in the evening it was  still looking good most days.

The wand that comes with is a bit of a clunker. It's very big. I dab the foundation on with it but blend in with hands. 

Rimmel Lasting Finish 25HR Breathable Foundation comes in 16 shades . Shown are Classic Ivory and Light Nude and is  approx.$ 7.99 at Amazon and drugstores, Target etc.
