Rimmel 25 Hour Lasting Finish Foundation Review & Swatches

Rimmel 25 Hour foundation Review & Swatches

Price: $7.99 for 1 ounce


This is a really tricky foundation. On the one hand it is very typical of "long lasting" formulas. It is comparable in consistency to Maybelline Superstay, both of which are thicker than say MAC ProLong wear or Estee Lauder Double Wear. Its almost closer to Double Wear Maximum Cover than anything else.
Coverage is fabulous and buildable but will set fast so work quickly. The one real drawback is the limited shade range. They have three Ivory shades, 100 Ivory, 102 Warm Ivory, and 103 True Ivory. 102 is the closest thing to a match for me and its not a bad shade by an means, probably about N/Nc20, leaning towards the N side.
100 & 103 have significant olivey/beige undertones. If you like Double Wear Maximum Cover in Creamy Vanilla 1N3, you'll like these.

*If you test it in store, be sure to let it DRY THOROUGHLY before purchasing as it does dry darker & is not as wet/dry consistent as some foundations.*

If you LOVE this foundation & want a cruelty free option, try Wet 'n Wild Coverall Foundation ot NYX Stay Matte Not Flat Foundation, both of which are similar in regards to formula & around the same price!
