Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25hr Foundation~~ My Drugstore HG foundation. Trust me it is true… and it’s been long 3+ year that I’m still in love with this product. It’s not that I haven’t tried other drugstore foundation, but nothing couldn’t really beat Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25hr Foundation.

Rimmel London 25hr Foundation shade 400


Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25hr Foundation comes in a 30ml glass jar with a pump. My one is an old packaging, currently they came up with slightly different new packaging where the cap has a Rimmel logo in it. I got mine from UK, this foundation cost £7/8, available in drugstores like Superdrug, Wilkinson or other.

Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25hr Foundation is a liquid foundation, consistency is neither too thick or thin. The foundation Provides medium to full coverage, buildable just the way you want. It’s not matte yet not dewy either, creates amazing satin finished base, does not dry out skin surface or does not give any cakey spot also doesn’t even makes you oily or greasy. I love the how smooth and skin like it looks on skin.

It actually performs the way it claims. The foundation is pretty much sweat, heat, humidity and transfer resistant. However, can’t really say if it last 25hr because I haven’t worn this(or any) foundation for that long but it does last good long hour(8hr aprox) in our Bangladeshi humid weather.

I love the amount of coverage it provides, sometimes I don’t even need to use concealer when I use this foundation. Therefore, feels a bit heavy on the skin when I opt for full coverage. This foundation only gets a bit oily in T-zone after 5/7 hour in BD weather, to mention I have combination skin, obviously it will perform way better in cold weather. I believe Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25hr Foundation will suit any skin type, from dry to oily, because of it hydrating finish.

I use the shade Natural Beige(400) which is a perfect match for my skin tone.  The foundation is really easy to apply and blend, works fine with brush, sponge or even with the finger. The best part is you don’t need to set it with powder, the foundation sets nicely and quickly into skin without getting into fine lines.

Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25hr Foundation has those each and every quality which I look for to name a good foundation. And the price, of course, is a reasonable one. I absolutely love this foundation and haven’t got a chance to replace it with anything else yet.

If you haven’t tried this yet and looking for a budget drugstore foundation, I strongly recommend you to try Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25hr Foundation. Unfortunately, this product is not available in Bangladesh so if you are in BD and want to try one then I’ll suggest getting help from online seller to avoid fake product experience.

    I used this product for years and for the last 2 months cannot find the 400 shade…. My bottle looked different but it is the lasting finish 25 hour 400 natural
    Beige…. Anyway… Is it discontinued?? I’ve looked in numerous stores. They still carry other shades though.

      They change the packaging a bit, the cap has a rimmel logo now. Otherwise it’s same and the shade 400 is also available in Superdrug,UK(as far as I know)

      Hi Jasmine, Sorry about replying this late!
      My mac shade is NC42. I have pretty warm skin tone, almost leaned to olive, so I dont really feel orange with this shade.

    I was going to ask the same question! What shade are you in mac foundation? I’m an nc42 so I’m not sure whether this will suit me. I did see it in store but i can’t try it on my face only test on my hand and I can’t tell from that 🙁

      I’m NC42 and this is quite a good match for me. I wouldn’t suggest you to buy it without trying it on, may be you can try in your jawline to find the match 🙂
