Hi Ladies! It’s Cindy from Prime Beauty blog coming to you from Prime Beauty Headquarters–a.k.a. my living room. I had the chance to try Rimmel Long Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation and here are my thoughts:
For years I was a bit of a foundation snob. Drugstore foundations were lacking—thick and cakey, they often oxidized on me making me resemble a Jack o’ Lantern—not a good look. There was never enough shade selection and of course no testers. Well beauties, drugstore makeup has come a long way! I’ve given up on spending $50 and up on department store foundations when I can spend $10-15 and get comparable quality. I recently tried Rimmel Long Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation. The shade was a good match, maybe just a tad dark. Overall, this is a good foundation and it performed well—it didn’t last 24 hours, but probably 16 for sure. There is a good color selection—11 shades.
Nice creamy texture—not too thick or thin
Blends easily, does not cake up
Good coverage with a slight dewy look
Really is long lasting
Has a built in primer—you can feel the primer in how easily this foundation spreads
Tends to sit on top on my skin just slightly and not “melt” in like I would prefer—that’s just me being picky though.
The long wearing finish, the texture, the coverage and the price make this a great foundation!
