As much as I am a fan of drug store makeup, Rimmel were a brand that I never had a lot of love for which is surprising as they're one of the most affordable makeup brands out there.
When I was teenager, I tried a few of their products but I never got on with them, probably due to the fact that my teenage self applied makeup wrong and wore far too much of it!
Over the past few months, I started to dabble in the Rimmel aisle and I must say I was pleasantly surprised with the products I tried.
One recent release that has been getting a good amount of coverage online is the new Nude Foundation, another addition to the Lasting Finish line.
Now I do enjoy quite a bit of coverage when it comes to my bases, but I've also been known to enjoy the more natural look and occasionally want to treat my dry skin to a more lightweight and hydrating base.
So I decided to pick up this new launch and see what all the fuss was about!
What They Say
This lightweight formula blends smoothly and evenly, hiding fine lines and imperfections for a poreless and seamless complexion.
The fluid-like texture is enhanced with a moisturising serum gel for that natural feel that looks great with flawless coverage.
It also contains SPF20 and Vitamin E for extra care.
What I Say
I really like the packaging and think it's a real stand-out for the drug store with it's pump applicator, glass bottle and nice white lid.
I also liked the fact that it contains a serum as like I said my skin is dry so I love products that give some coverage while also nourishing the skin underneath.
I applied this like all my bases, with a buffing brush in circular motions to really work the product into the skin to get that airbrush finish.
It has a not too thick texture, offers light to medium coverage and just feels weightless on the skin so that it feels like you have nothing on your face.
It's definitely buildable and it leaves a satin type finish to the skin, making you look radiant and healthy.
It has great lasting power on me and I can get the full day out of it without ending up an oily mess.
All in all, this is a total slam dunk from Rimmel and I think you guys should definitely check it out!
