Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour and Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation are two of my all-time favourite foundations depending on the look I am going for. Both priced very inexpensively, £7.99 for Lasting Finish and £8.99 for Wake Me Up respectively. You can often pick these up on special offer as well, or certainly from Boots, there is nearly always a 3 for 2 on. Both are packaged beautifully in glass bottles and look more expensive than their price tag reflects.
Now I have a big love for Estee Lauder Double Wear, however you could purchase 3 of each of these for the price of one.
If I am wanting a flawless base that lasts all day I have been using Lasting Finish. This is a beautiful foundation, non cakey, hydrating, creamy and blends beautifully. Rimmel claim it is transfer proof; it is, once on it doesn’t budge. It provides great coverage, feeling light on the skin, not as though it’s clogging your pores up too much. If you are very active, have a lot going on and are rushing about, this is a perfect foundation. As it is sweat, heat and humidity proof – big claims, however they are accurate. I love this product and it is a great rival for Estee Lauder’s version. I will continue to repurchase this, as I don’t think for a long lasting foundation you can find better in the drugstore.
If you prefer a more natural finish (even though Lasting Finish isn’t too heavy), and love a dewy, less matte look to the skin then Wake Me Up is perfect for you. It provides a radiant glow, has SPF15 and peptides – to literally perk up the skin and leave an illuminating effect. This is a lovely, lovely foundation for the Summer months, especially when you have a tan and just want a lovely glow.
Both of these foundations are incredible for high street and both provide lovely results. They blend beautifully and leave a great finish to the skin. Both last well and both are cheap. What more could you want?
