Foundation is really something that has improved within the drugstore especially in the past couple of years. Before the only decent foundations available were the ones that were from higher end brands such as Lancôme and Clarins. One of my more recent discoveries within the drugstore foundation wise is the Rimmel London Fresher Skin foundation and this is a foundation that is aimed towards people who want that matte finish without compromising on the glow factor.
It comes in a pot…..not a fan, at all! I have a really bad OCD problem when it comes to my makeup in that I don’t like anything that can promote bacterial growth (don’t even get me started on counter makeup brushes…that are used on over 20 people a day and only cleaned with a simple makeup wipe…-_-). Packaging aside, the actual foundation is brilliant.
It has an SPF of 15 and I would give it a medium to high coverage finish. Texture wise it can look quite thick in the pot but it really blends out quite beautifully on the skin. You don’t need a lot and though it looks heavy in the pot it really is quite light and breathable on the skin. I use the lightest shade in the range which is Porcelain but it does come in a large shade selection.
I found application is best achieved with a sponge (damp) and though it has SPF it doesn’t have any flash-back and photographs beautifully. It currently retails for 9.99 euros but it can easily be found on offer in retailers such as Boots and Pennys/Primark.
