Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25H Nude Foundation Review

Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25H Nude Foundation Review

By Linda


Happy New Year to all you beautiful ladies out there…So today I will be a reviewing my first product for the year 2017 and it’s a drugstore liquid foundation from the brand RIMMEL LONDON.I was looking for a daily wear, low cost foundation mainly for work and outings, a product that is lighter and suitable for my combination skin. This is the first time I tried a foundation from this brand, otherwise I normally buy lipsticks and nail paints as they have good range of shades.

They have two launches in the 25 H lasting foundation range,

1. Lasting finish original foundation (Red cap)

2. Lasting finish nude foundation (white cap).

When I visited the drugstore counter I did not find the lasting finish original foundation may be I missed it. Hence I cannot speak much about the former product. So let begin with the later one that’s Lasting Finish 25H Nude Foundation.

There are six shades available in the nude foundation range: 010 Light Porcelain, 100 Ivory, 200 Soft Beige, 201 Classic Beige, 303 True Nude and 400 Natural Beige.

What RIMMEL LONDON Claims: Medium coverage foundation that feels hydrating and moisturizing. Light weight formula blends instantly into the skin creating a nude, poreless effect. As per my experience this product did stick to what it claimed in regards to coverage,application and finish. Sweat, heat ,humidity and transfer proof for up to 25 hours. Coverage that won’t let you down. Dermatological tested.SPF 20. It does have a fragrance which is not mentioned.

This foundation is formulated in a glass bottle with a pump dispenser and a cap that fits on top. The pump dispenser is very convenient which dispense considerable amount of product in one puff. Unfortunately the ingredients are not mentioned on the bottle.

Cost: Approximately INR 1030 [4.6 KWD] for 30mL.

I have a medium to fair skin tone; combination / sensitive skin. The closest suitable shade I picked up was 303 True Nude. I’m a little disappointed with the limited range of shades as I found this shade to be a tad bit darker on my skin tone and the previous shade to this was lighter for my warm skin tone. On application at first the foundation blended smoothly and effortlessly in to the skin. My skin evened out giving a clean smooth finish. It seeps into your skin within seconds covering the pores and minor discolorations. So definitely a concealor is required for dark spots, circles or blemishes if any. I did lock the foundation with the compact powder. This foundation is buildable, so begin with a minimal amount and gradually increase if you require more coverage.

It does claim 25H lasting finish but honestly I do not prefer carrying makeup on my skin for more than 10 hours so I did not test if it lasts for 25 hours. I noticed it really lasts long for approximately 8-9 hours but after 3 hours my skin did show oiliness on my T-zone. But throughout it gives you fresher looking skin

It is ideal for work and also suitable for clubbing , parties as it doesn’t not flash on photographs, neither creases nor it oxidises and even does not look cakey. During extreme winters or summers I tend to develop dry skin patches on my skin but on application none of these spots were highlighted and no skin irritations were developed.

Advise you to well mositurize and prime your skin along with powder for long lasting results. If you are looking for a daily wear long lasting foundation then this foundation is worth the money. I applied this product during the day time and outdoors and noticed it did not oxidise and remained throughout but yes the oiliness did appear so it’s not 100 percent sweat proof. Works well with a beauty blender or sponge applicator rather than a brush.
