About a month ago, I started to notice that my face was getting quite oily throughout my t-zone around mid day. I had been using my beloved 17 BB Cream and more recently Dr Jart + Water Fuse BB Cream. I really like the coverage that BB creams give, but my skin was just becoming too oily to continue using such moisturizing products. I asked around on Twitter for a more mattifying foundation suggestion and was recommended Revlon Colorstay and Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation. I chose the Rimmel foundation after a bit of research because Colorstay sounded a bit too cakey and heavy coverage for me.
I got the colour 100 Ivory which was a good match for my skin colour. The formula is quite liquidy and spread easily over the skin. I apply it with a Real Techniques buffing brush, you do have to really work it into the skin or it can look streaky with a brush. It is one of those foundations that apply better with fingers.
The finish is semi-matte, it remains a bit dewy, not completely dull. It sits on the skin nicely, I found with BB creams that your skin sometimes feels a bit slippery like the product never really dries. It does last all day on me, although my chin sometimes will get a bit oily at the end of the day. Can’t say if it lasts 25 hours or not, as I don’t require make up for that length of time 🙂
Have you tried Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation? Does a foundation need to last 25 hours??
