So when it comes to foundations, the Rimmel Wake Me Up is my go-to. I've talked about it loads and would recommend it to pretty much everyone who's skin isn't too oily or too dry. It works perfect for my combination skin, as it is both moisturising but long lasting, and gives a reasonable amount of coverage. It's also under a tenner at £8.99 and I do find a little goes a long way with this. However, I was searching for a little more coverage and so I thought I'd try another one from their foundation range.
The Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation comes at £1 cheaper than the Wake Me Up counterpart, but it contains the same amount of product (not something I'd usually look for, but if you want the facts!) My first turn off was the fact that it didn't have a pump. Because there are no testers in American drugstores, I had pretty much no way of knowing this until I opened it up. It is marketed as a full coverage foundation, so I was expecting something quite heavy duty, but to be honest I would say it is more of a medium coverage. The finish is a lot less dewy, and so in turn it tends to stick to dry patches which is a downside when you have combination skin like me, as the finish will just look uneven. I don't think this foundation is bad per-say, but I was a little disappointed.
Foundation is something pretty personal, so if you have oily skin, you might really enjoy it! Let me know if you've tried any of the Rimmel foundations before, and which you'd recommend below!
