Review: For a fabulous long-lasting liquid foundation, you can't go past this affordable option. This wondrous foundation has an ever so slighty dewy finish. It glides over skin and blends to perfection to create a lovely natural look that lasts for hours on end. I am really impressive with the long-lasting formula - I can apply Lasting Finish 25 HR Nude Foundation at 7am and it still looks flawless well into the evening. The medium coverage is most than substantial for most women as it really does cover flaws and makes skin appear more even. I tried the shade 'Ivory' which matches my skin tone perfectly, however because I am rather fair, Ivory shade makes my skin look pale - until I add blush and bronzer to warm skin and complete the look. Lasting Finish 25 HR Nude Foundation is one of few foundations I can apply to skin and then apply a powder blush and bronzer directly to without a dash of powder in between and I love it! Why? Because certain powders can be ageing on dry/mature skin so the less products applied to skin, the more natural the outcome. Lasting Finish 25 HR Nude Foundation is ideal to wear out by day, to work and even of an evening. The only thing I am yet to test is the 'photo flash' factor. You see some foundations containing SPF protection can make the face look very washed out in photos taken with flash - once I have tried this I shall let you know. With SPF 20 skin is moderately protected for a short time, but important none-the-less. The formula contains Vitamin E, leaving skin feeling soft. Ideal for all skin types, this foundation does not irritate skin. The glass bottle packaging is classy and professional, however it  might concern some consumers because knocking it off the bathroom vanity = disaster. The pump applicator is easy to use and the scent is much like every other foundation out there. Available in 5 shades, Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25 HR Nude Foundation caters for fair to medium skin tones which leaves those with dark skin looking elsewhere.
Tip: For flawless results be sure to use concealer where needed before applying this foundation.
