Welcome back to another blog!
As you can tell by the title I have a new favourite every day foundation. It is the most light weight foundation I have ever tried,it is the Rimmel London Lasting Finish. I heard about this foundation on a Irish TV program called Ireland AM and the woman who had a beauty segment recommended this foundation for those makeup wearers who hate a heavy thick foundation. I instantly went straight to Sam McCauleys because I needed this foundation. I hate heavy thick foundation that you can feel moving around your face, it distracts me all day, it makes me feel disgusting. I wanted a light weight foundation with a good medium coverage, not to oily and not too matte.
It is a very breathable foundation, it is not cakey at all and sits nicely on the skin. It is build-able, I like to put on two layers because one layer is just too sheer for me as I have basically red tomato skin.
I loved the doe foot applicator reminds me of a bigger version of the Tarte Shape Tape concealer, it wouldn’t be great for makeup artists as it would not be hygienic. I found it strange in the beginning because I usually like to apply foundation on to the back of my hand first and then dipping my Real Techniques Complexion Sponge into the foundation. With this applicator I just applying the foundations by dotting the foundation mostly in the center of my face and then blending outwards.
Shade & Wear
Looking at that shade range it is very bad, not very diverse. The first 10 look the exact same with a few tan shade and just one darker shade. That is a very big issue within the drug store brands is their shade diversity it could be 10 times better. I purchased the Shade 010 Light Porcelain, I am usually the lightest shade in every foundation, It is a bit too dark for me that I have to blend it down my neck but I have to do this with nearly every drug store foundation so I don’t matter to me.
The foundation sits perfectly on the skin, it’s so moisturizing for the dry sections of my face. It is very build able as I apply 2 layers every time and it still looks perfect. The longevity of this foundation is amazing, the only issue I have is with my nose but when prepped and set correctly I could get 3 hours without having to powder my nose. After wearing it all day the rest of my face is still perfect, whenever I wear this foundation everyone always compliments me on it, I recommended it to all my family and friends and a few of them have got it. The picture below is me wearing the foundation.
I purchased this foundation when it was on promotion. I got it for I think €7.50 and the normal price is €11.50. I highly recommend you buying this foundation and trying it out for yourself!
