Rimmel Lasting Finish Breathable Foundation - My Holy Grail Base Review

I've tried a variety of foundations, but it's safe to say that I think I've discovered my new holy grail base product. The Rimmel London Lasting Finish Breathable Foundation is the brand's newest launch and I had to try it after hearing countless bloggers sing its praises upon purchasing it. I definitely wasn't disappointed, as this foundation has revolutionised my makeup routine and I've been using it on a daily basis ever since, as I really have fallen in love with it. To hear more of my thoughts on this product, make sure you keep reading!

This foundation comes in a glass bottle, having a doe foot applicator unlike any other foundation that I've seen. This soft sponge wand allows you to have control over where you apply your foundation, making it ideal for an easy yet mess-free application. I also find that this concealer-style applicator means there is practically no wasted product, unlike if you were to pump out the foundation on the back of your hand. My only concern is that the applicator may not be the most hygienic, but you can easily apply it onto a brush or sponge opposed to straight onto the face if this is a concern.

Rimmel's Lasting Finish Breathable Foundation is available in seventeen shades, which is a huge variety that you wouldn't normally expect from a drugstore brand. This means that there'll definitely be something for everyone and you shouldn't struggle to find a shade that matches your skin tone.

I own this foundation in two shades: Classic Ivory 101 (left) and Soft Beige 200 (right). The paler of the two is definitely ideal for day-to-day usage, being a great match for my skin tone. The darker is definitely better suited to if I'm wearing fake tan and is ideal for nights out, and I'm sure I'll also get a lot of wear out of it in the summer months.

Applying this foundation is incredibly easy, and its thin, water-like consistency makes blending a dream. This is ideal for doing my makeup before college when I have to get ready quickly and can still wear foundation without having to spend ages buffing it into my skin.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Breathable Foundation - My Holy Grail Base ReviewThe Lasting Finish Breathable Foundation provides a medium coverage that is definitely buildable - it evens out my skin tone and minimises any redness, meaning I only require minimal concealer on blemishes and under my eyes. It has a very radiant, semi-dewy finish that gives the skin a glowing and healthy appearance. It's also incredibly breathable and skin-like, living up to Rimmel's claims, which is ideal for me as I'm not a fan of thick, cakey foundations. It sits comfortably on the skin, being lightweight and glowing - which is exactly what I desire in a foundation.

Not only does Rimmel's newest foundation tick all of the boxes in terms of application and appearance on the skin, but it's also a winner in terms of longevity. This product stays in place all day on my skin, which literally never happens to me as my foundation usually wears away and becomes patchy by the end of the day, especially around my nose and chin. This certainly isn't an issue with the Lasting Finish Breathable Foundation, and it stays in place even after a long day of college and through dancing.

An added bonus of this product is that it includes SPF 20, which isn't the most useful now as the weather is dreadful in the UK, but I can guarantee that I'll be extremely thankful of this in the summer months.

Overall, I'd highly recommend purchasing this foundation, as for only £8.50 you will gain a breathable, radiant and long wearing product that truly has become my holy grail. I'll definitely be continuing to wear this foundation as I've fallen in love with it, and I'd urge you to try it out if you haven't already!
