Rimmel London Long Lasting 25 hour foundation review

My favourite makeup product is foundation. I am always on the search for a great foundation and like trying different ones. For the last few weeks, I have been using the Rimmel London Long Lasting 25 hours foundation and really like it.                                                                                              

It comes in a tube with a top that you screw off and then squeeze to get the product out. You get 30ml of product in the tube.

Rimmel says: Sweat, heat and humidity proof for up to 25 hours. Transfer resistant. Enriched with a revitalizing Mineral Complex and moisturizing Aqua Primer. Skin feels energized and hydrated all day.

The foundation texture is smooth and easy to apply. The coverage is medium, buildable to full. It evens out the skin tone really well and the finish it gives is a nice luminous natural look.

It feels great on the skin and hydrating enough to make your skin feel good as well. Its great that it has a primer in it which is what I would say is what makes the skin feel hydrated.

It takes a few seconds to dry. It claims to last 25 hours, although I haven't tried it for that long, it definitely lasted 12 hours for me. It doesn't transfer either which is great for a affordable foundation.

The shade range is the only setback with this foundation as there are only six shades to choose from which may make it hard trying to match to all skin tones.

Overall a great foundation for anyone looking for an affordable, long lasting and natural finish. It retails for $17.95 aud and you can buy it from department stores or supermarkets.

What foundation are you using at the moment?

Great review- thanks for sharing. I'm using Mac studio fix at the moment but I tend to try something different each time my foundation runs out.

I really don't use foundation, but as for concealer the Beauty Without Cruelty is a big fave of mine!

Avon cream to powder, but I love Rimmel products so I am very happy to hear this one is good as well!

I've been using this for ages now, always seem to resort back to it! Just hate how shiny it goes on my face but with a bit of powder throughout the day, its okay :)
love it all the same!

Great review :)

Ooo...sounds like it's definitely a keeper for those long days. I've got combi skin so sometimes I use Rimmel's Stay Matte foundation as a base with loose or pressed powder. It's a funny product, its called 'stay matte' but has a dewy finish. =d
