While this is not the best foundation I have tried, it's not the worst either. After reading reviews about it being tricky to find the right shade, I was lucky enough to pick up the right one for me on the first try. I was a little worried as upon initial application the colour looked very yellow, however after blending it in it matched really well. The formulation is nice and thick but still easy to blend with fingers or a beauty blender which is what I like to use. The coverage is light to medium but buildable to full coverage by adding more layers. The finish is nice and dewy so I like to set it with my Rimmel Stay Matte powder. While I don't ever see myself wearing this foundation for 25 hours straight, it does last me an entire work day without fading off, which is definitely a plus.
if you are looking for an affordable everyday foundation this is a great pick.

Tricky to find correct shade
So far I have liked this foundation but it was quite orangey, so I need to mix it with a lighter foundation. It has a fairly smooth application as long as I wear primer underneath and but made my nose area quite oily after a few hours. I wouldn't say that it lasts 25 hours as it claims on the pack...

Good for the price, but a bit too sheer coverage for me
This foundation gives a smooth finish on my dry skin. It doesn't accentuate any of my wrinkles or fine lines; nor does it make my skin look flaky or chalky. I can get several hours of wear time from this foundation before it starts to fade, although I can still see a residue of it after about 5-6 hours. That's a long time for me as my skin has a tendency to suck up foundation.
There are two reasons why I won't repurchase this foundation. The first reason is that the palest shade is still not quite a good colour match for my fair skin. The second reason is that the formula is a bit too sheer for me. I have broken capillaries so I want a foundation that offers heavier coverage.

Very scared of foundation
I always seem to pick the wrong colour and type of foundation. I have an oily tzone but yet I can get dry patches also. I tried this foundation out on a wim (easily available at Coles and cheapest at $15), and it turns out it’s the best I have had yet. Its goes on really smooth and dry’s to a powdery finish. It has good coverage and just a small application goes a long way. I have tried 2 different colours due to it being winter and both are a good match with my skin tone.

Great coverage with smooth matte finish
It was hard to resist with the price so good so after sampling it at the local chemist I bought a tube of 102 - which is good for fair combination skin with a yellow base, matching my skin tone well. Goes on very easily and stays on with a matte finish there is no real need for a primer for this one unless you wanted to extend the long wear even further. Happy with this one for night wear or for fuller coverage for hiding breakouts. I still prefer the mineral type make-up for daily wear.

Super if you can find a shade for your skin.
Gives medium coverage but can easily be built up to full; despite the great coverage, it feels quite light on skin and doesn't appear overly cakey; and gives a matte to semi-matte finish. Lasts for ages (though obviously not 25 hours) - I use it for 8-10 hour work shifts over a primer and when I go to remove it at the end of the day, I find that most of the foundation remains and my normally super oily face appears only slightly so. The shade 202 is a decent match for my light-medium skin with yellow undertones, but I need to mix it with the 200 to lighten the colour and to water down the orange undertones. Would be my everyday foundation but for the poor shade range for yellow undertones.

I love this foundation, and I would love it even more of it came in lighter shades! I he to mix it with a really light color stay so it doesn't make my face look orange! such a pitty

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.
