Drugstore Recommendations #5


I'm sure you all know my love for complexion products as I go on about them a lot. So when I picked this little duo up after seeing some awesome reviews, tested them and proved the great reviews were true, I just had to share it with you. Keep an eye on my Instagram to see how this looks on my skin. 

Rimmel Lasting Finish Nude Foundation in Light Porcelain | £7.99
There's all kinds of goodness in this one little bottle, and starting with the texture, this foundation is very liquid-y and was amplified with a moisturising serum gel to provide that light, natural, flawless looking complexion without feeling heavy or mask-like. I love that it has Vitamin E so it's providing hydration whilst staying put - it says for up to 25 hours, however I'm not crazy enough to test that out, but it lasts pretty well - it doesn't settle into my skin or cling to dry patches and I think it's a great, everyday foundation.
It has buildable coverage so I like to use the Louise Young LY34 Brush which gives a light layer and a hint of coverage. To build it up I much prefer the Real Techniques Multi Task Brush as this buffs in the product, amps up the coverage whilst looking seamless yet very natural. No cakey-ness in sight. To top it all off, it has an SPF of 20 which is perfect for daily wear.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Powder in Light Porcelain | £6.99
Although this is marketed as a powder foundation, I use it more to just set my foundation as I love how natural and smooth it makes my skin look. I don't find that it mattifies my skin much as I apply a light dusting with the Real Techniques Blush Brush and it applies the perfect amount, and the glow of my foundation still comes through, so I really love it for that. It can also be used to set your foundation and mattify your skin or just on its own and you would just need to use something like the RT Buffing Brush or the Powder Brush to apply an even layer where needed.
