About: long-lasting mattifying pressed powder packaged in a plastic compact with sponge applicator.
Review: For the matte skin finish, this pressed powder is a winner. A setting face powder which doubles as a wet/dry powder foundation, Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25HR Dual Finish Powder works it magic on the skin for hours on end. I usually experience an oily t-zone which worsens by the end of the day, however this is not currently the case due to skin becoming much drier through pregnancy. While my makeup cannot usually last the day without a touch of pressed powder to set my foundation, I have had to use Lasting Finish 25HR Dual Finish Powder sparingly because skin is currently flaking and rather sensitive. This coloured powder adds a touch of colour to skin without making skin look 'cake-face'. The lightweight powder has a medium consistency which blends nicely but be sure to apply sparingly to ensure application appears natural and even. Lasting Finish 25HR Dual Finish Powder is packaged in a lovely slimline plastic compact with sponge applicator although I prefer to apply with a large face bush for best results - otherwise it could certainly look cakey. I can't say just how this product works as a wet/dry powder foundation because I used it as a pressed powder, however I am personally not a huge fan of wetting a powder foundation anyhow.
Tip: purchase a foundation that matches your skin tone and then choose Lasting Finish 25HR Dual Finish Powder in half a shade darker to add a little warmth to skin.
