Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation Review

I’m pretty sure this is a classic drugstore foundation. Everybody seems to have spoken about it at one time or another. I tried this for the first time recently after hearing plenty of good things, and being on the lookout for a good affordable foundation. That also offers full coverage.

 I have the shade 100 Ivory and I find it a little dark, so I add a few lightening drops just to get a better match to my skin. I like my foundations to have full coverage, and this claims to be just that. Do I find it full coverage? Not really. I’d say it’s more of a medium coverage, but it can be built up.

 To apply this I use a Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. It applies really nicely and blends easily, even though it is a thick texture. This covers my redness just fine and covers blemishes.

This foundation also has comfort serum which I don’t think the previous version had, so this mist have been revamped somewhere down the line, but as I’ve never looked into this before, I’m not too sure. The comfort serum makes it perfect for dry skin, which is one of the reasons I get along with it really well. It doesn’t cling to dry patches, and doesn’t turn cakey.

Apparently this foundation is supposed to last for 25 hours, but I’ve never had to leave my foundation on for that long. I have worn this from about 7am to 10pm and it has lasted just fine with no touch ups needed.

The packaging is sleek and comes with a pump which is always a bonus, as I really don’t understand why all foundations don’t come with them.

Overall I have been really loving this foundation!  I’d say it’s more suited to those with dry skin, so if you have oily skin, it might not work as well.

It costs £7.99 and you can get it from places like Boots and Superdrug!

Have you tried this foundation?

Thank you for reading!

    I have oily skin and I really like this foundation! It doesn’t stay as matte as other foundations I’ve used, but it lasts well enough throughout the day.

  6. Kayleigh Zara says:

    This foundation does look amazing! Is it cruelty free? The long lasting stay sounds like something that I would really enjoy as I have very long busy days x

    I wasn’t so close to picking this one up recently in boots but I ended up going for the Rimmel Wake Me Up instead. I’ll definetely go for this one next time after you mentioning how well it works with dry skin and not clinging to dry patches, that’s always what I’m looking for!

    I’ve tried a few Rimmer foundation, I like this one but I do tend to change my foundation quite a lot aha! For £8 you can’t really complain x

  11. Keighley says:

    I switch between this and the Rimmel True Match and I LOVE THEM! This is a really great review lovely – can’t wait to read more! K xx

  12. Jemina says:

    I looked into this a while ago but I never got round to trying it! I may have to purchase it soon as my current foundation is running out and I’m looking for something new x

  13. JENNGRIEVE says:

    I love this foundation, its one of the only ones that properly matches my skin tone haha!

  14. Marina says:

    I bought this foundation just after moving to France and loved it until I got my french sunshine tan haha! xx Too light for me now and it was the darkest shade! Other than that, I love the consistency of it – I normally go for something more full coverage but on an everyday basis, it’s fab! x
    Lots of love,
    Marina Rosie xx

  15. Katie says:

    I absolutely loved this foundation! Sadly in the US it didn’t come with a pump for some reason 🙁

  16. Nikita says:

    I have oily skin so I don’t how well this would work but if they have a shade to suit me, I’m willing to give it a try! Great review as always xx Nikita

    That’s one foundation I’ve been wanting to try but I first bought its L’Oreal counterpart. But that one sounds good too based on your review. I wonder if can withstand my oily skin and humid of my country.

  19. Alice Snell says:

    I really like this foundation for my dry skin however I do find the shade to be slightly too dark for me, which is a shame.

  20. Brynnie says:

    I’ve always wanted to try this foundation as I always heard so many good things about it. It seems like it would be so good for my dry skin, thanks for the review! xx Brynn

  21. Velvet Blush says:

    I remember looking at this a few years ago but I didn’t get it as the undertones for the medium shades just weren’t a good match for me. It actually sounds like a good buy, especially for dry skin as I find that a lot of foundations can look cakey on me x

    Loved reading your detailed post. I am a combination skin and weather here is very humid, but going by the comments here, I guess I should give it a try 🙂


  24. Radi says:

    I think I have tried this foundation before, but am currently using the Fit Me Maybelline one. It’s really good. I highly recommend it.

  28. Stella says:

    I tried Rimmel’s Wake Me Up foundation and I quite liked it but it didn’t last very long and sometimes the texture got a bit strange. It’s also got this slight glitter in it which I wasn’t the biggest fan of. This one sounds good though!

  29. Louise says:

    I used to use this foundation all the time when I was younger! Wouldn’t go back to it though!

  30. Diana says:

    I have yet to try Rimmel, but it’s so nice to hear an honest review and I’m glad you like it! I am addicted to NARS as I just bought one from there so I’m not sure I could make the switch but I’d still love to try it! xx


  31. Claire says:

    This is the only foundation I ever use and I can’t imagine using anything else! I luuuuurv it 😍 Xx


  32. Esraa says:

    My favorite foundation is the maybeline fitme foundation. It is super affordable and it does the job like nothing else.

  36. Alice says:

    My skin is a bit all over the place as its combination but to know it doesn’t cling to dry patches is a bonus! Can’t believe how dark it looks for “Ivory” though? I definitely think I’d need to pop some lightening drops in there too!

    • luxuryblush says:

      I think this would work for you, as it’s great for dry skin and other people in the comments with oily skin has said it works for them too! I know, from what I’ve seen the shade range isn’t the best xx

  37. Olivia says:

    I can’t get enough of your blog, it’s literally makeup porn ;p This is my favorite drugstore makeup and it’s just really affordable for the quality! Love your blog, you got a follower 😀

  38. Sophie says:

    I quite like this foundation, most of the time it works really well with my skin but sometimes I notice it has clung to a few dry patches. Overall I do like it though!
