You might think a tall order for a foundation like this, even if you could find it, would be costly. But, surprise! There is actually a foundation in a tube that has all of the above attributes: Lasting Finish 25-Hour foundation, by Rimmel — and it is only $7.48!
This creamy foundation smooths on like a dream, and it really does last. I didn’t stay up for 25 hours to see if it lasted that long, but let me just say that I had to scrub it off — it was that tenacious! Longwear products are often cake-y or drying, but Rimmel Lasting Finish 25-Hour Foundation actually looks moistly matte and makes your skin look flawless. The foundation is enriched with an Energizing Mineral Complex and moisturizing Aqua Primer that helps it look and feel comfortable and natural for hours.
If you’re going to perspire at the club, or during that stressful meeting at work, no worries. This makeup isn’t going to be phased by heat, humidity or even if you are under stress. At least that’s one thing you won’t have to worry about!
And the color choices are quite varied: Ivory, Warm Ivory, True Ivory, Natural Ivory, Soft Beige, Classic Beige, Nude, Sand, Warm Honey, True Nude and Natural Beige give you enough to get the shade right, or at least very close to perfect.
If you’re excited to try this foundation, all you have to do is visit your local mass market retailer or drug store and pick up a tube, for a better looking face in 2011. You can also check out Rimmel on their web site
