Over the years I must’ve tried dozens of different foundations, here is a review of the latest pharmacy brand I tried.
Name of Product: Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25H Foundation
Where Purchased: Well.ca (online pharmacy)
Product Description: A medium coverage long-lasting liquid foundation available in 11 shades.
Ok, so I can guess what you’re thinking. A ROLLER foundation applicator?! They were on seriously good stuff when they came up with that. I admit I was sort of thinking the same when I saw this at the pharmacy yesterday. That and something else along the lines of them being ready to try anything no matter how weird and ridiculous to get sales.
BUT the brand being L’Oréal True Match made me think twice about it. As far as pharmacy makeup brands go, I would say that L’Oréal True Match liquid foundation is my favourite and the one I would recommend to anyone looking for a foundation with good coverage at a fraction of the cost of the bigger brands (MAC, etc) at around 9 dollars a bottle. It also has the best selection of shades in its category to my knowledge. I had to return L’Oréal’s Infallible foundation the other day because the palest shade made me look like a Ganguro.
Feeling adventurous that evening, I decided to try it and find out first hand what that roller thing is all about.
