Rimmel Lasting Finish Breathable Foundation First Impressions

Hey beaut's!

I'm a huge lover of Rimmel foundations, in fact I'd actually go as far as saying they are my favourite brand in the drugstore for foundations, so when I saw they had a new foundation out I knew I'd have to give it a whirl! Lucky for me I actually had just over £9.00 worth of Boot's point on my advantage card so I decided to use them and finally grab the Rimmel Lasting Finish Breathable Foundation to try, don't you just love it when that happens! I've been using the Lasting Finish Breathable Foundation everyday now for just over a week and I thought I'd share my first impressions with you all today! 
The Rimmel Lasting Finish Breathable Foundation claims to be lightweight, buidlable, long wearing with a medium coverage - all things that I like and look for in a foundation. I have to admit as soon as I started blending in the foundation on my very first application I was loving it, it blends/melts into the skin with complete ease and honestly feels like I'm wearing nothing, it's so lightweight and kind of thin feeling if that makes sense. The coverage is pretty impressive too and totally not what I was expecting from and lightweight - breathable foundation, it covers so well I'd go as far as saying it's more medium+ depending on what you use to apply it. It sets beautifully to a natural, semi dewy - satin finish which is my absolute favourite kind of finish, and again theres no heavy , tacky feeling once the foundation has set. As for lasting power, the breathable foundation claims to last up to 25 hours but lets just be real, I don't think any foundation can be on the skin that long and still be slaying but it does hold up well on a working day, I don't find that it goes patchy or breaks down on my t-zone where I get slightly oily at the moment.
The only thing I don't like about this foundation isn't the formula but the applicator...it has a large doe foot style applicator which holds the product much like how a concealer does and then you spread/dot it around your face that way, personally I don't find very hygienic and I would of much preferred a pump to be honest, however it is quite a controlled way to use the foundation and I cant see how I'd waste much of the foundation like how I can sometimes if I pump too much out so theres always that.

Overall I've been bloody loving this foundation and I'm so glad I picked it up to try, I imagine it will work perfectly in the Spring/Summer months too as it's just so lightweight. Theres also a concealer within the Breathable range too which I want to try now, I have quite high hopes for that now after trying the foundation!

  1. I haven't tried this foundation yet, however I have tried another Rimmel foundation which I love

  2. I've been eyeing this one up recently and I'll admit, it was the applicator that put me off adding it into my basket.
    A strange addition I think.
    Thanks for sharing your thoughts, I might still give it a bash and just stick with my trusty brush/ BB

  3. It is so lightweight, but I found the coverage really bad. Like I do have a problem skin, I don't have so much acne, but I do have rosacea and it just was too sheer for me. I'd say light+, but like I said - I've probably have a different skin. Glad it worked for you, though! :)

  4. I absolutely love the Rimmel foundations! I personally use the Rimmel Lasting finish with 25 hour with comfort serum foundation, but I am running out! I might have to get this one! Have you tried the 25 hour comfort serum one? Which one did you think was better? xx


  5. I have to agree with you on every single point on this - except the applicator - I flipping love it (haha!!) . It is such a staple foundation and I love how it applies/lasts in my skin. I know it will be a definite fave in the summer !

  6. I’ve been thinking about switching from my current No. 7 foundation so as it’s so cheap this sounds like it’s worth a go! I like to switch up my coverage so having something that’s buildable is really important; this sounds perfect!
