Rimmel claims that this foundation is SWEAT , HEAT and Humidity proof for 25 hours . Its transfer resistant and skin will feel energized and hydrated all day . Is that claim right ??? Lets find out.

After testing  it on my hands , it first looks like a perfect match but its actually a one tone darker then my skin tone . As my face is somehow fairer then my hands. SO , my face did look muddy after applying it which was a big disappointment. I think one tone lighter then this would be my perfect match. 
But even after my pregnancy , my skin color and texture is continuously changing -thanks to my post pregnancy hormones . To a great surprise, when I try it again, it blends well into my skin. So I decided to give it a try to check the claims.

Before sharing my thoughts any further, I would like to mention again that my skin is extremely oily .  So I am always looking for a foundation that is sweat proof and that can control the shine/greasiness on my face for the longest hours. To my great disappointment, just after 2 hours of its application I can clearly see some shine on my t-zone. But even after a touch up , my face was looking like a complete oil factory just after 4 hours of its application . I must say that initially , it gives me a very matte finish ( in my view more dull looking )and I have to apply some light color face powder and some good shimmery blushers to overcome that .( I dont know how it turned out so great in the pics ) 

It applies smoothly on my face and the consistency is somehow runny . You can easily apply it with Sigma F80 brush ( review HERE ) . As it will give you that air brush finish.

The formula is light but can still give you medium to full coverage.
This foundation can lasts for no longer more then 1-2 hrs ( at least for me ) . And it comes in very limited shades.

The packaging is not very attractive but that’s ok for a drug store product I guess where the price is great.

Apart from all the cons , no doubt that this foundation can really help you stand out in the pics. ( i am surprised by the results really )

You might like it :

  • If your skin is very dry.
  • If you want a foundation that has a light formula ( like a BB cream )but can give you a full coverage.
  • If you are looking for a moisturizing foundation.
  • If you want a good foundation just for a photography purpose ( for oily skin type people specially )
  • If you think its affordable.

You might not like it :

  • If your skin is oily
  • If you cant find your exact shade. 
  • If you want your foundation to last for longer period of time.

Would I recommend It :

Yes , if only your skin is not oily like mine.
