Cheap and Classy
I went from using Lancom's foundation, but found the lasting power wasnt that great so thought I would give this a try, and boy am I happy I did! I have been very impressed with this product. I wouldnt say that it stays for 25 hours, but often after a long day at work when I come home my face looks drowned out- but not with this product. I still look fairly refreshed with colour on my face! The price of this is a bonus also, so you really cant go wrong. It left me with a matte finish which is exactly what as I want as I tend to have oilier skin.

Amazing value for money
When my normal MAC foundation ran out, I went to buy more but ended up standing at the MAC counter waiting to be served for 20 minutes before i gave up and wondered the floor of David Jones, I cam e across the Rimmel lasting finish, I tried a bit of it and brought it (i thought if it didn't work, it was cheap and i could buy something else instead).
I was really surprised with the high level of coverage this foundation provided, it went on smoothly, was easy to blend and lasted all day (primer first with a powder on top).
It covered some slight pigmentation I have as well as blemishes, my skin can be quite oily and blemish prone but the foundation had great staying power and didn't seem to make a difference to my skin blemishes.

The product doesn't live up to it's name when it says 25 hour foundation, but for a days work or a dinner date the foundation is perfect, it's medium coverage, affordable and has a really nice dewy finish.

Excellent coverage at first but does not last all day
I love the look and feel of this foundation when I first wear it. My skin is dewy, has full coverage and feels great. However after about 8 hours or so, I need to touch up and at times (even with a primer underneath) I can get very very oily (so I would not recommend this foundation to those with oily skin). I think that this foundation would become more suitable with my skin type the older I get, as my skin is starting to become more dry and less oily. Then it would be the perfect foundation.

Finally found the foundation I've been looking for!!
I have quite oily skin and have tried so many brands on the market in search of the perfect foundation. I find that most products either cake on or absorb to quickly into my skin and I have to re-apply after a few hours but not this foundation. It goes on quite thick but smooth, and gives me a glowing, even and fresh faced finish with the power to stay on all day. Best of all, it doesn't clog my pores! It's fair to say that I am hooked!

long lasting flawless skin!
I've never tried a rimmel foundation before (big fan of revlon's colourstay!) but after seeing such positives reviews on BH i knew i had to try it out. I have oily skin so by the end of the day i barely have any foundation left on my face (even in winter!). I have this foundation in Ivory 100 and found that it blended into my skin quite well. The foundation itself is thick but when you apply it on your skin, it's quite easy to distribute because it quite smooth. After applying it, my skin looks like its glowing and so flawless. I'm not sure if it does actually last 25 hours but at the end of the day when i remove my makeup, I find that there is more foundation remaining. I only use this in winter though because i do get very oily skin so i prefer a foundation with a more matte finish in warmer weather. Regardless, I'm giving this foundation 5 stars because i love the way it makes my skin look and feel.

Hard to blend
I was highly recommended this foundation but it turned out to be a disappointment with me. I purchased the lightest shade and it looked okay when I first applied, but when I went outside I looked a bit orange.
The second problem is that it is so difficult to blend. I can only blend this out to a nice finish if I first apply a moisturizer and a primer, and I have normal to oily skin.

Love this foundation. I use a primer (Innoxa's Pure Silk) under this, and it ends up looking flawless. It's easy to apply and blend, without looking cakey. It is also easy to build up the coverage desired. I'm happy with this foundation and will continue repurchasing it.

Best affordable foundation going around!
I have always used a more expensive foundation like Clarins or Napoleon, believing that are of a superior quality. When I was trying to budget a couple of months ago I bought this Rimmel foundation in 201 Classic Beige, and I love it!
The foundation glides on smoothly using either a brush or a sponge, it's not oily and I don't get shiny throughout the day, but I still have a healthy glow. I have had better skin since I started using it, and because it's cheaper, I don't feel guilty layering it on a bit more in the evening. I will be buying this one again when I run out, I now prefer it to the more expensive foundations.
