Today I’m reviewing Rimmels latest foundations, the Lasting Finish 25hr with Comfort Seurm and Lasting Finish 25hr Nude. These come in the same style packaging as the Match Perfection and old Renew & Lift but the Nude has a white lid. I have both of these in 200 Soft Beige.
I’ve always loved the Rimmel Lasting Finish foundations and have used and finished every single one. My favourites have been the original 12hr and the most recent 25hr so of course I was the keenest of beans to try these two out.

Starting with the regular formula, it a creamy liquid like all the others and is very easy to work with. While it claims to have full coverage, I would say this is just a touch under completely full coverage. It’s not an issue for me but don’t expect this to be covering moles or tattoos. If you set it with a coloured powder, you’ll look pretty bloody flawless. On its own, it has a slight dewy finish and you should set it where you have oily skin.
The nude formula is very much the same and it has more coverage than I was expecting. It does claim to have medium coverage and it does but on my skin where I don’t have extreme redness or flaws, the difference between the two is barely noticeable.

If you’ve watched my videos before, you may know that the original 25hr foundation is one of my favourites because of the shade 202 nude, flawless finish and how long it stays looking good on my face so, the big question is, are these new ones as good at this original formula?
Mmm it’s so hard to say, I really wanted to love these foundations but I just don’t feel right saying it’s as good. Maybe I scrutinise these too hard. I would definitely still consider these longwearing but I just think I prefer the last formula. I still love these and think they’re a good foundation. I will more than happily continue to use them but I just wish they didn’t discontinue the old one.

These also have SPF 20 in them which is good for daytime but means I won’t be able to use them for events where there will be flash photos being taken.
I’m going to start doing a cakeface* rating now for my foundation reviews just to make it a bit easier to compare so for my very first cake face rating, I score the regular formula an 8 and the nude formula a 7. As a reference to base off, I would give the previous formula a 9!
I hope you guys have found this review helpful and If you have any other questions about these, leave them down below and I’ll answer those at my earliest convenience!
Enjoy your day guys, bye!!
*the term cakeface does not indicate that these foundations will leave you looking cakefaced. It’s just a cute name ^^
