Rimmel Lasting Finish 25hr Foundation Review

Hi all! Today I’m sharing my thoughts on the Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 hour with Comfort Serum. It does have an SPF of 20. It is marketed as a full coverage, skin perfecting foundation. I purchased this in 091 Light Ivory. I couldn’t decide between this shade or the next shade up. The Light Ivory is still a little light for my skin, but since we are heading into the winter months it should work just fine.

The claims on this product is that it is long lasting, transfer proof, and full coverage for flawless looking skin. After testing this out for the last couple of weeks in a variety of situations and events. The longest I wore this was about 10 hours. It lasted that entire time. There were a couple of spots where it wore off a bit, which was to be expected, but it did last all day. I mentioned before that this was a little light for my skin tone, however by the end of the day it matches almost perfectly. Yes this does oxidize a bit but not so much that by the end of the day you look like an Oompa Loompa. I don’t believe anything is completely sweatproof, but this foundation comes pretty darn close.

I apply this with a beauty blender and it does thin out the formula a bit, so it becomes more of a medium coverage foundation, considering it wears well, I don’t mind. If I get to warm, it does start to feel little strange on the skin, but it still looks pretty good.

I would rate this foundation as an 8/10.

Have a great day!!


Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation Review

Hi gals! So for today’s post I’m sharing with you my thoughts on Rimmel’s Stay Matte Foundation. It is a liquid mousse foundation. I purchased it in the shade 091 Light Ivory, which is the second to lightest shade. It comes in 8 different shades, Light Porcelain being the lightest and Sand being the darkest shade. Now I did give kind of a mini review/first impression of this product on my MOD: Blackhawks Parade and Rally post.  For this review I’m going to list the claims and then state yes or no and any reasons, and then give my numerical rank out of 5.

Rimmel Stay Matte Found


Liquid Mousse: Yes. It comes out of the tube like a mousse and when applied to the skin it liquefies and just glides across the skin.

Light Weight: Yes. Until the heat took over, then it felt kind of sticky.

Oil Free: Yes.

Shine Control: Yes.

Blends well: Yes.

Natural Matte Finish: Yes. I loved the finish of this product.

Minimize Pores: NO. I’ve tried this with and without a primer, in high heat and just plain ol’ every day. I could see my pores both ways.

A couple of other things:

I went out to eat and when I wiped my mouth it kind of peeled/rolled off my face. It was kind of strange. It also didn’t stay all day. I was surprised to see hardly any foundation on my makeup wipe. I also want to say that I do tend to have much oiler skin in the summer months and thought that this would be a good solution, however, my skin was still too much on the dry side. This foundation clung to my dry spots as the day wore on. I feel that if you have true oily skin you will like this. If you have combo skin, this may or may not work for you.

Final Rating: 3/5
