So it’s finally feeling like winter is a distant memory. The sun is out, dewy mornings with criss-crossed clear blue skies…
I’ve been using Rimmel’s lasting finish foundation paired with the powder for a couple of weeks now ; enough that my skin can get used to it and to see how it performs overall.
Firstly I’ve had terrible skin recently due to stress. The formula of the foundation is very kind on the skin and delicately Scented of Watermelon. Yeah! Who doesn’t love that?
The colour (I’ve used 100 ivory for the foundation and 01 light porcelain for the powder) is perfect. It blends nicely with its creamy formula. It isn’t as thick as I was expecting for a foundation that claims to be long lasting but I don’t feel that that is a bad thing.
Warm weather means you don’t want thick and overbearing product on your face – almost forgot to mention it’s SPF20 too! Protection as well as everything else!
After a long day at work my skin still looks relatively flawless, and the creases I usually get on my eyelids if I don’t bother with eyeshadow don’t exist when I use this foundation, set with the powder using my body shop kabuki brush.
All in all, this is a perfect all-day wear everyday foundation that smells great applies well, is gentle on the skin and is also easy on the pocket at around £7.99. I’m very happy with this product and give it 5/5. Yep. Full marks!
The powder comes in a nice case with the mirror underneath the powder with a sponge for application – this is a nice touch seeing as (and I don’t know about you) but I get sick of product smearing on the mirror inside compacts and rendering them unusable! I liked the powder as it’s not too powdery – by that I mean when you touch it with a brush it doesn’t puff up everywhere and go anywhere except in the brush and onto your face!
Thanks for reading, let me know if you’ve tried it!
