Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25 hour Foundation Review

Looking for a drugstore foundation that gives great coverage?, looks natural, wears well and doesn’t cake your skin? well lets have a look at the Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour foundation.

I have been looking for a great foundation that i can wear on a day-to-day basis that doesn’t skin me overtime I buy it,  so I done some research and have found a lot of people talking about the Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour foundation.

What does it say on the tin? this foundation says it blends flawlessly, seamless, instantly, and easily into the skin. And it is sweat, heat, humidity, and transfer proof for up to 25 hours. is this true? lets find out.

As the years have gone by I have noticed a huge difference from when I use to buy Rimmel products at a young age, the quality, packaging and the consistency has improved massively, the packaging is a sleek glass bottle with a pump dispenser which is hygienic, with a red lid with the logo imprinted at the top.

I have been wearing the lasting finish for about 2 weeks now constantly and I can say that last all day, with no touch-ups, perfect for those busy days, But 25 hours? I’m not entirely sure about that claim, mainly because we don’t leave our foundation on that long, and can’t imagine many people do.

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 applies well, doesn’t dry too quickly, doesn’t feel tacky and blends easily. It covers all redness and uneven skin tones and does a pretty good job of covering angry blemishes too.

The finish to this foundation is beautiful, it gives you a natural however if you are oily then you might find it slightly shiny but lets face it, I’m sure you with have a great powder that will fix that problem


  • Ivory
  • True Ivory
  • Light Porcelain
  • Soft Beige
  • Classic Beige
  • True Nude
  • Natural Beige


Would I recommend the Rimmel Lasting finish 25 Hour foundation? yes I would!! this is a lovely foundation that gives you that flawless look for less the price you would for another that does the same job. Does it last 25 hours?? I have no idea! and I’m not up for staying awake for 25 hours but I like their style!

Rimmel have really upped their game over the years and I feel that their is no stopping them, there products they are bringing out are exactly what you will be looking for at an affordable price so go and check out their stalls mostly located at SUPERDRUGS and BOOTS.

    Hi emma what kind of skin type do you have? I was wondering if you think this foundation could work for dry skin as well?

      Hi Annaleid, I would say this foundation would be great with dry skin!! I have combination skin and feel after a while it can become bit oily!! you should give it a go,

    This looks really good! I love when they use pump bottles like this; that alone is a big sell point!

      Its a great foundation and yes your right, the fact it has a pump is a huge bonus!!
