Rimmel brings you it’s foundation revolution. Finally one convenient product that helps build coverage day through to night and beyond! Available in four shades this foundation delivers high coverage, long wear and is a must have for anyone looking for a great power foundation.
This powder comes in a small compact that has a mirror and a square sponge at the bottom compartment. I personally have not used the sponge so I cant speak on it’s performance. I love the travel friendly packaging, I can just pop this my purse and I’m good to go. It’s one of the nicer compacts I have seen from the drugstore.
The great thing about this product is that you have the option of applying this either wet or dry. You can apply it dry for a light to medium finish, or wet for a full professional look while remaining water-resistant. I have obviously used both methods and honestly love how the finished product looks on both methods. I apply it dry when I am setting my liquid foundation. I use a fluffy brush and lightly dust my face. I really love using this powder wet when I want to set my concealer. I dip my damp beauty blender into the product and lightly press it into my skin. The finished results deliver an air brushed look. The powder just melts into my skin and doesn’t look cakey at all. The shade I have is Soft Beige, and although it does look fairly light in the pan it blends in nicely with my medium skin tone. I probably wouldn’t’ be able to use this shade in the summer though.
Rimmel makes big claims about this foundation. They claim it lasts not 24 hours but a whole 25 hours. Now, in my personal experience I would never need to have my foundation last 25 hours. I guess it’s useful for people who work very long hours and can’t find the time to retouch their foundation. I cant speak about it lasting 25 hours because I don’t keep makeup on my face that long. I can say this foundation exceeds my expectations and last all day for which is about 8-9 hours. Keep in mind I have super dry skin so I rarely ever get shiny. If you do have oily skin I suggest using a face primer beforehand.
