I’m a foundation freak. You may already be aware of this if you have read this blog for any length of time.
When I initially saw this one a while back in Superdrug I wasn’t falling for the claims as I normally would. No. It appeared that I had malfunctioned or something that day! And I didn’t even pick it up! In fact, I had a little chuckle at it rolled my eyes and walked right past.
I wasn’t prepared to be disappointed by another bold claiming high street foundation.
But then I stumbled across a few reviews on it. Then I noticed it appearing in ‘monthly favourite’ videos on You Tube.
Curiosity got the better of me and I was all over it like a tramp on chips, and I’m so pleased I gave in…
Never in my life has a high street foundation excited me as much. There are a couple that have come close (Bourjois healthy mix and healthy mix serum and more recently L’Oreal Lumi Magique) Even then I have always found that one teeny tiny reason not to truly love them. With them being from the high street I didn’t mind. I pretty much made peace with the fact that there would never be the perfect high street foundation for me.
Then Rimmel go and come out with this bad boy!
I am 99% sure that I shall be declaring it holy grail!
Half a pump
(the formula reminds me of a lighter cosistancy MAC studio sculpt)
Coverage: Medium, buildable
Finish: Radiant! Really brightens skin without being overly dewy. Flawless, but definitely doesn’t leave skin looking cakey or too ‘done.’
Staying power: Rimmel claims 10 hours. It’s more like 8.
Shade range: 7 shades- My shade is 200 Soft Beige. I am an NC25/30 in MAC foundations
Price: RRP £8.99 for 30ml. *Amazon have it for £6.00 + free delivery
Packaging: Glass bottle/pump combo.
Suitable for: All skin types. It definitely doesn’t emphasise dry skin or sink into fine lines & pores. Nor is it so light and dewy that it will look greasy and slip on oily skin. The only down side is the shade range.
Random info: It smells amazing, it must be all the vitamins!!
I get the song ‘Don’t wake me up’ stuck in my head for hours every time I get it out of my Make-up bag!
Repurchase? Definitely! This is a product that actually does what it says on the tin.
