Rimmel Lasting Finish 25HR Breathable Foundation

Earlier this year, Rimmel came out with a new liquid foundation! Available in 15 shades, the Lasting Finish 25HR Breathable foundation is said to be lightweight on the skin and provide light-to-medium coverage.

This foundation has a very thin consistency and comes in a glass bottle with a cushion applicator. I'm not going to lie, I'm not a fan of the packaging. I prefer a pump!

With that being said, the formula was a nice surprise!

The Lasting Finish Breathable foundation is beautiful on the skin and doesn't look cakey! The finish is semi-matte, but it doesn't have mattifying properties so I still need to blot my skin after a few hours.

However, this foundation holds up incredibly well on my super oily skin! I set it with a bit of loose powder (I currently use the Marcelle Face Powder), and it wears well for up to 12 hours without separating or sinking into fine lines!

How's that for a $12 foundation?!

The coverage is sheer, but buildable to medium!

I can apply a thin layer with a damp Beautyblender if I want light coverage, a second layer for light to medium coverage, and a third layer for medium coverage.

I wouldn't add more than 3 layers, as it can start to look cakey. (and who has time for that?) If you prefer medium to full coverage, this foundation isn't for you.

The formula is supposed to moisturize the skin for up to 25 hours, but it's not heavy or greasy by any means. In fact, it feels very lightweight and it's perfect for my oily skin!

By the way, the product is lightly scented. Just something to keep in mind if your skin is sensitive to fragrance!

Aside from the cushion applicator, my only complaint is the lack of deep shades and the fact that most of the shades have pink undertones.

  1. I think I would really like this foundation just for the fact that it's so breathable. I also really like applicators like this one.

  2. This sounds like a foundation that I would like. I have combination skin and it's difficult to find products that work for me. Thank you for the lovely post!

  3. Thank you so much for not only making great swatches, but actually taking the time and describing all those different shades. Photos can be deceiving depending on the light, but your description was really helpful.
