I received samples of Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25 Hour Breathable Foundation ($7.99 USD) and Concealer ($5.99 USD) for my honest review. Here is some info on the foundation:
The lightest long-lasting formula available on the mass market. This special formula builds and blends with ease to ensure a flawless canvas with every application. Formula & Benefits: 25HR wear, sweat and transfer resistant, SPF 18 to protect skin, built-in ergonomic cushion applicator.
Available in 16 skin-true shades: 081 Fair Ivory, 100 Ivory, 101 Classic Ivory, 102 Light Nude, 103 True Ivory, 200 Soft Beige, 201 Classic Beige, 203 True Beige, 300 Sand, 302 Golden Honey, 303 True Nude, 400 Natural Beige, 402 Bronze, 502 Noisette, 503 Mocha, 504 Deep Mocha
Here’s a look at the foundation applicator:
It’s a large doe foot wand applicator that is flexible and cushiony. I use it to dot or stripe the foundation on my face and then I blend in with a brush or sponge.
The swatch on the left is the concealer in the shade 200 Light. It’s a little dark for me know, but will work really well for the summer time. Next to it is the foundation in 100 Ivory, then 101 Classic Ivory. They both work really well on my skin.
I like the foundation a lot, it is very light on and looks really natural. It can be built up for more coverage and really does last all day. I do feel that it is not caked on and is breathable. I’m not really into full coverage foundations (I have pretty good skin for my age), so I will be wearing this often!
The concealer squeezes out of the tube in a stream, can be applied with the sponge or with a brush or fingers. Here’s the info on the concealer:
The formula is transfer and sweat resistant so it lasts when you need it most. Best part? It doesn’t look cakey or feel heavy. Formula & Benefits: Cushion applicator, 25 HR wear, sweat and transfer resistant, Ultra-smooth breathable formula.
Available in six skin-true shades : 001 Light Ivory, 100 Fair, 200 Light, 300 Medium, 400 Medium Dark, 600 Dark
This covers well, I almost think it’s a little more full coverage than the foundation! It lasts all day and will be perfect when it is hot and humid in the summer!
Have you tried either of these products? What do you think?
