Today I’m on cloud 9! And you’ll probably laugh at me when you realise why, or pity me that what I’m about to tell you would make me so happy.
Let us begin . . .
Last week I was over on http://confettiandcurves.wordpress.com/ which is one of my most favourite blogs & seen that Karen had reviewed Rimmel Lasting Finish 25hr Foundation.
I’m beyond sceptical when it comes to drugstore type foundations, having tried X amount of them over the years. After an hour or two the makeup would disappear from my Tzone, nostrils & chin leaving a greasy type residue.
I’d end up having to reapply 2 or sometimes 3 times through the day.
Naturally this sent my stress levels souring, if I noticed it then surely others did too.
NOT what you want in a foundation, in fact the complete opposite of what it’s meant to do. It made me feel ick! I couldn’t wait to get home & wash my face. So ever since this drama I’ve avoided buying foundation in the chemist & stuck with high end ones.
I’ve read alot of good reviews on the Rimmel 25hr but was dubious incase the same thing happened, then after reading Karens review I bit the bullet & finally picked it up & for the bargain price of £4.98. It comes in a glass bottle with a pump dispenser which I love.
Honestly I can’t say enough good things about it. It claims to be a lasting finish, full coverage & skin perfecting. It lasted the entire day & some, I put it on at 12pm & took it off at 1am.
As for full coverage, I didn’t retouch it once. As you can see from my before photo I’m a bit of a freckle monster, I used 1 pump of it, which was even too much, it covered everything I wanted covered. Finally it gets the thumbs up in the skin perfecting stakes too, I think my skin looked alot brighter afterward.
1 pump of foundation equaled a full day of wear tooing & froing about shops & town in the elements.
I’m a convert. For me it’s most definately a dupe for the higher end ones that are out there.
Would I buy it again? Yes!
It’s a no brainer, with the usual retail price of £7.99 I’m saving ten pounds compared to what I pay for my current one but still getting the same coverage.
Have you used this foundation before? What did you think?
Thanks a million for reading.
