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.

I got this for my mum and a couple of weeks later after trying it about 8 times she told me she really didn't like it. Before giving it the flick I decided to give it a go myself and I agreed with her. It didn't give that much coverage and felt REALLY cakey. That said I had it on for about 18 hours and it did last really well.

Better than my SFF
Mac's studio fix fluid has got nothing on this amazing product, its more of a gel like consistency which I prefer better, the price is amazing, priceline always has rimmel on sale so you can get it for a really good deal, the coverage is medium to full and I really enjoy that about this foundation, lasts all day and night, I have combination skin and it doesn't make me get shiny and nasty, as soon as I finish my SFF going back to this one :)

I recently bought this foundation at my local chemist as a last minute purchase, and ive gotta say that i'm glad i did! It was only around $17.00, and i must admit it has worked just as well as some of the more expensive foundations i have bought. It goes on really evenly, and is a good foundation to wear out, because its really thick and does last all night! I wouldnt however wear this as a day foundation because it can look a bit too much...
