I think Rimmel have really stepped up their game when it comes to foundation. They've finally brought out some paler shades in all of their foundation and added a nude version of their lasting finish foundation. I tried the original version a long time ago and I remember it having good coverage but felt heavy on the skin so a lighter version sounded like it could be perfect.
The packaging is very simple and the same as the original lasting finish instead this time with a white lid. It has a glass bottle so feels very sturdy as well as having a decent pump which makes dispensing the product easy.
The foundation claims to contain a moisture serum gel which is meant to make the product feels lighter on the skin and as if you aren't wearing any product. It definitely does feel lighter on the skin, and the texture of the foundation is more creamy and gel like so it doesn't cling to any dry patches on the skin.
It blends very easily on the skin; a small layer can be applied to create a light coverage or it can be built up to create a more medium to full coverage. I tend to apply a medium coverage of product and then apply a light concealer where needed. The finish is semi-matte whilst still having a bit of a glow to it. I think this would be best suited to those with dry or combination skin, those with very oily skin may prefer something more matte. I have the shade Ivory which is pale but isn't the palest shade they do, so if you have very pale skin you will definitely be able to match your skintone. Sadly there is a good range of darker shades.
I've been really impressed with this foundation, the wear time isn't amazing, however I do find it lasts most of the day on my skin and doesn't look overly patchy. It also as an SPF 20 which is a nice added bonus. If you are looking for a good all round affordble foundation that feels light on the skin I would definitely recommend checking this one out.
