Today I have the last one of the three Rimmel Lasting Finish products I got for testing a while ago. You can see my review of Lasting Finish 25H Foundation with Comfort Serum (which I love, love, LOVE!!) and Lasting Finish Concealer here.
This one is a 25H Powder Foundation that is waterproof, buildable for better coverage and can be used with wet or dry makeup sponge (included in the package). Since I have a dry skin I don’t like powder foundations too much. I did test this for the sake of testing it and as expected it did make some of the dryness visible and also made my skin feel a bit dry. Coverage was good though and this was easily buildable. So if you don’t have dry skin like mine this might be a great product for you.
Even if this is called powder foundation there’s other ways to use it too. For me this works best when used for fixing my makeup. I put a couple of drops of water on the sponge and apply the powder where needed to touch up my makeup. This blends in with the Rimmel Lasting Finish 25H liquid foundation perfectly. I tested this by rubbing some of the makeup off the tip of my nose and my cheeks. It ended up looking like it usually does if my makeup starts running after a certain time. I had to rub it off cos the Rimmel 25H foundation stays on my face forever and never fails me ;) Either way tip of my nose and parts of my cheeks were showing and I applied this powder foundation on those spots with a wet sponge. It covered those areas perfectly and you couldn’t really see there had been any damage to my makeup to begin with. Staying power was also good.
So for me this product is excellent when used wet for touch-ups during the day. It’s now always in my purse.
