As promised, I’m reviewing a foundation; Rimmel Lasting Finish 25H Foundation with Comfort Serum. That’s a long name but it is somewhat descriptive of the product inside…
Hopefully you can see from the pictures that when you first start blending this product out it goes extremely streaky! I was doing my makeup before work today and I was so scared I would have to wash it off and start again. I think this is due to the “comfort serum”. It feels sticky on the skin when it’s first applied but as it sets that feeling goes away.
I blended this foundation out really quickly and made sure to smooth out any streaks. It wasn’t as full coverage as the packaging claims so I added another layer.
Now, when it comes to 25 hour foundation… that is just insanity. This did not last 25 hours but it did last really well throughout most of my full day at work. At around 4pm it was a little shiny and by the time I got home at 7pm it looked very oily. I wouldn’t fault the foundation for that though! As usual, I set it with powder in the morning but didn’t touch up during the day for the sake of this review.
Final thoughts… This is a good drugstore foundation if you have oily to combination skin and like a medium to full coverage. I’m hesitant to recommend this to dry skin types even though it has “comfort serum”, the finish is quite matte when it sets and I believe it may cling to dry patches.
