Rimmel Lasting Breathable Foundation and Concealers

Rimmel London Lasting 25hr Breathable Foundation is claimed to be a lightweight and long-wearing foundation providing medium natural coverage. It's available in 15 shades. Rimmel London Lasting 25hr Breathable Concealers feature cushion applicators and are available in 6 shades.
Here's a demo and review of the foundation and concealers. I also tested the foundation for 6 hours. I have combination/oily skin and for shade reference I'm in NC40-NC42 in MAC.

  4. 300 Medium

Overally, it's a good everyday foundation that I'd personally wear it for work. It's lightweight and doesn't look cakey at all, which I really like but I notice there's a flashback, so I personally wouldn't use it on days I'm planning to take pictures.
  • Coverage: Light-to-medium coverage
  • Application: It comes with an applicator that you can use to apply the foundation and then blend it out with a brush or beautyblender. The brush provides a better coverage but I prefer using a beautyblender. It's very easy to apply and you can build it up.
  • Shade: I got the shade 303 True Nude, which isn't the perfect for my skin tone but it's the closest match I found. 300 was lighter and 400 was slighty deeper.
  • Wear time: I tested it out for 6 hours in the video. I have oily t-zone but it didn't look too oily by end of the day. It does slightly fade away with time especially around my mouth and nose.
