The Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour foundation has full coverage, looks natural, wears well and doesn’t cake the skin. Is it the foundation for you?
Rimmel says this foundation blends flawlessly and quickly into the skin. Plus, they claim it won't budge for 25 hours and manages to resist sweat and humidity.
The foundation was given a little update in recent times, and the repackaging includes a sleek glass bottle which gives it a more high-end look. And a ‘comfort serum’, we’re not told exactly what this is, but seen as this foundation feels lightweight and non-cakey on the skin, it’s working.
The Lasting Finish foundation does, in fact, last all day too, with no touch-ups, perfect for those busy days. But 25 hours? We’re not entirely sure about that claim, mainly because we don’t leave our foundation on that long, and can’t imagine many people do, intently at least.
The foundation blends easily, it’s a quite a thick consistency, but it’s definitely easy to create a flawless base with a buffing brush or blending sponge. It covers all redness and uneven skin tones and does a pretty good job of covering angry blemishes too.
The packaging is sleek, and the pump dispenser is really easy to use and hygienic. One full pump is a little too much product for us to use, but just don’t go as heavy with the finger when you’re dispensing the product to get a little less out. It applies well, doesn’t dry too quickly, doesn’t feel tacky and blends easily.
The finish is natural, but those with oily skin might find it a little too shiny, but it’s nothing a little powder can’t fix.

Are you willing to put the 25 hour wear claim to the test? Nope, neither are we. But the Rimmel 25 Hour Foundation does last really well all day and wears beautifully, even when the weather is on the warmer side.
Expect a flawless canvas from the Rimmel Foundation, even those with oily skin will love the finish of this foundation, even if you do need a little touch up of powder during the day.
The foundation doesn't have many shade options, which is a downside, but considering the price, the flawless coverage that doesn't feel or look cakey, the long-wear and skin-like finish, the Rimmel Lasting Finish foundation is a great budget foundation option.
