Hi there lovelies, i know a few of you have already tried this foundation out, but for those of you who haven't i wanted to do a quick review as I'm really impressed.
It's on offer at boots just now for just £5 so i thought i would try it for myself.
I have seen so many adverts for this stuff plus the fact that miss jones gave such a positive review was reason enough for me to have a dabble.
I picked up shade 200 soft beige as i have not been wearing any fake tan lately and it actually matched my skin perfectly. The shades are a little bit hit and miss so if you are very fair you may struggle getting a colour as the lightest seems quite dark in my opinion.
The first time i wore it i used a really really small amount and buffed it in well with my flat top sigma brush. I applied it immediately after moisturising so the slip of the moisturiser helps blend it into my skin.
These first two photos were taken with no concealer, no powder or bronzer
I love the results. It looks so natural and feels lovely and fresh on the skin. It leaves a slightly dewy look and really covers any redness, imperfections and blends so easily. ( it helps that the colour is perfect )
The foundation lasted all day but i did find my nose area went a bit shiny after about 7 hrs which is not really a problem as such but thought I'd point it out anyway.
The next day i applied the foundation in the same way but just slightly more. Nearly 1 full pump to be exact lol
I then applied my Mac Skinfinish powder with a big soft brush and applied a little ELF bronzer to warm my complexion up a bit. Again no concealer.
This time the foundation lasted from first thing in the morning till about 8pm before i noticed a shiny nose. I really love how it looks on my skin and it photographs pretty nicely too.
I nipped into boots while wearing it and my friend on the Estee Lauder counter asked me what i was wearing and was shocked when i told her :)
It is very similar to Estee Lauder Double wear and it also reminds me slightly of Revlon colourstay which i also really like except i find colourstay can be a bit cakey looking sometimes and this is not.
If you are looking for a new foundation then i would seriously give this some consideration.
Rimmel have gone up a rank in my books after trying this. This is an ideal foundation for both day wear or an evening out. I will be getting in a darker shade as well so when i wear my fake tan i can still use it. Thumbs up Rimmel.
