The product

Whether you’re a budget beauty queen, love a kit with a mix of high and low goodies or just need a cheap option for those days when you can’t afford your luxury stan – everyone has a go-to budget foundation. 

And, according to our Review Crew members, Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25HR Foundation might just be yours.

Boasting a buildable medium to full coverage finish that seamlessly blends into skin, it helps to blur imperfections and conceals dark circles in one swoop. With  a skin care inspired formula and 25HR long-lasting finish, this hyaluronic acid and vitamin E infused foundation also helps to boost hydration for a refreshed, plumped and smoothed visage that’ll last all day. 

Our panel of Review Crew® testers put this skin care inspired base to the test.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25HR Foundation to a panel of women aged 16 and over with normal to dry and dehydrated skin.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25HR Foundation.

The long-wearing, hydrating formula: Our members were very impressed by the longevity of the foundation with many saying they were able to comfortably wear the foundation from day to night without having to worry about the product caking or fading - the hyaluronic acid and vitamin E infused formula left skin feeling hydrated and comfortable all day and through the night.

The lightweight finish: Reviewers loved how lightweight the satin-finish foundation felt on skin, and a few of our reviewers noted that they even forgot they were wearing anything.

The medium to full coverage: Members found the buildable medium to full coverage finish of the foundation super easy to work with, and they were able to create a natural, even-toned complexion.

The verdict

“This foundation leaves your skin with a gorgeous dewy finish. I have tried it with or without primer, both are fine, although I prefer to always use a primer. It is weightless on the face, it doesn't break me out (additionally) and it's very comfortable to wear. All in all, this foundation is a superhero and this gives me a perfect face with longevity and comfort.”

“This foundation is so light on my face, that it felt like I was hardly wearing any foundation at all! It’s hydrating which is great during the cooler mornings and nights. Unlike other foundations I’ve used before where I’d get so conscious about it wearing off throughout the day, this one has so far exceeded my expectations in that it doesn’t fade or oxidise as the hours go by and is still as prominent at the end of the day as it is when I first put it on.”

“Wow! Another hit from rimmel London which is great because their products are so affordable (especially on half price sale days). This foundation was hydrating and lightweight so it is great for everyday wear. Better yet it is a medium-full coverage foundation so I could add a bit more foundation without it feeling cakey but allowing me to get a finish that I like.”
