Last week I chatted about the new Rimmel Lasting Finish Breathable Foundation, sharing an overview and swatches of the new collection. This week I’m bringing you my very first wear test video! I decided to give the foundation, concealer and primer a try, showing you 9 hours of wear – head to my previous blog post to hear more about my thoughts.

Check it out:

 

For those of you curious, I used the foundation in the shade Classic Ivory and the concealer in the shades Fair & Light – Fair ended up being surprisingly light on my pale skin (and right now I’m turning into a nice shade of Casper).

Drugstore foundations are always fun to try. They’re more affordable and accessible than most of the versions you’ll find at Sephora & department stores, but can really be hit or miss. I’ve tried some great ones & some duds and now there’s a new one on the market that I couldn’t wait to dive into – the new Rimmel Lasting Finish Breathable Foundation. The original Lasting Finish Foundation will still be sticking around, so don’t worry if you love that one. This new version is supposed to be light and airy, so you don’t feel like you have anything on your skin and it can still breathe underneath your makeup, avoiding congestion and having your makeup look like it’s caked on.

In addition to the new Lasting Finish Breathable Foundation, Rimmel is also launching a concealer and primer to go along with this.

I want to chat about the foundation with you first & I’ll touch on the concealer and primer below!

The foundation ($11.99 CAD) is available in 15 shades (mostly mid-toned shades). This is definitely an expansion of the shade range they’ve offered before, which is great to see, but there’s definitely still room for improvement. It would be great to see them break into some darker shades, especially since brands are really starting to make an effort to have something for every skin tone, and to have more offerings for those with deeper skin tones since they’re still a little limited there.  That being said, it’s really nice to see a wider shade range, especially for a really affordable foundation option. Hopefully in the future, they’ll be able to expand this further and make it more inclusive.

The foundation does feel really light on the skin and offers light to medium coverage, which can be built on. I found that it gave a really nice, even look to my complexion (I’ve been wearing the shade Classic Ivory) while helping to cover up problem areas. I do need to use concealer to build up more coverage on areas that need a bit more help, but really like how this wears for a daytime foundation. I actually prefer not to set this one with a powder; it has a pretty soft finish and sets nicely on my skin, but I’ve been pretty dehydrated lately and I find using a setting powder dries it out a bit too much. If you’re a bit oilier you might want to add this step in.

The foundation comes with a wand applicator, which I like. I apply the foundation directly onto my skin using this and use a brush to blend it out. If you prefer a pump, you’re out of luck on this one; just use the applicator to throw some on your hand before you apply normally.

It’s not cakey at all, which is something we can all agree is a good thing, and it does leave my skin looking fresh. I found that it lasted quite well through the day and a bar shift; I did have a little bit of shininess at the end of the night but it wasn’t bad at all. It did fade a bit over some red spots, but again, at this point, I had been wearing it for about 18 hours. Will it last for 25 hours? I find that a little hard to believe, but for a light-to-medium coverage foundation I found that it did a pretty good job.

The Rimmer Lasting Finish Breathable Concealer ($10.99 CAD), available in 6 shades, provides medium, buildable coverage for problem areas. It’s a bit on the thicker side and blends really nicely into to skin. I find that it does a pretty good job of covering up imperfections without looking heavy.

It comes with a round, cushion applicator for direct application to the skin. It doesn’t work too well for me for really blending in the concealer, so I tend to apply to the skin using this and blend using either a sponge or my finger.

This collection also includes the Rimmel Lasting Finish Breathable Primer ($11.99) to help prolong the life of your foundation by up to 8 hours. It’s quite thick and lotion-y and not my personal favourite style of primer. At first, it felt a bit tacky, but once my foundation had been applied and set it softened and left behind a more matte feel.

Will you be giving the Rimmel Lasting Finish Breathable Foundation a try? What’s your favourite drugstore foundation?

Check back next week because I’ll be sharing a wear test video!

Another day, another lipstick. And I’m not even close to being done yet. Today we’re sticking to drugstore (and affordable) lippies with the new NYX Pin-Up Pout Lipsticks. Available in 24 shades and ringing it at $10 CAD each, these are a fantastic option for adding some new colours to your repertoire for the fall.

I have all but 2 of the shades and couldn’t wait to dive in and swatch them for you so you can find your next pick!

These lipsticks are throwing it back to the OG lipsticks, going vintage and focusing on a creamy feel and bold colour payoff. These lipsticks dry to a velvety, almost matte finish that feels surprisingly light on the lips. I clock wear time at about 4-5 hours before you will need to reapply, and you will experience some transfer with these.

 

If you’re looking for colour, the NYX Pin-Up Pout Lipsticks are definitely what you’re going to want to get your hands on this season. The payoff is incredible, with extremely bold, opaque colour. Be careful with application, because with such strong colour you’re going to want to be really precise. I would suggest starting with a liner for perfect full coverage. Anyways, the pigmentation on these is pretty incredible, and with 24 different shades to choose from I have no doubt you’ll be able to find something to suit most of your needs. There are quite a few nude and deep shades, as well as a few classic reds and pinks to round the selection off. Also, fair warning, some of the deeper shades – heck, most of the shades – do have a bit of a stain to them.

And now… On to the swatches, because I know that’s what you’re really here for.

Do you know what I hate? Clumpy lashes. You know what I mean; you swipe on your mascara only to find chunks of lashes that stick together. I’ll admit I’ve done some silly things to get separation, like taking pointed end tweezers to them to pry my lashes apart. The new COVERGIRL Total Tease Mascara promises long, refined lashes, so I knew I had to try it out.

The mascara, which is available in a few black + brown shades and a deep blue, does a good job of getting in close to the lashes for full coverage. The wand it dual-sided; half features a plastic, spiked brush for even coverage and the other side has a unique detailing tip with longer bristles so you can really separate and “tease” the lashes to their full length potential. I’ll be honest, the first few times I used this mascara the detailing tip freaked me out a bit. I could see it in front of my eye while I was brushing the mascara on, but I quickly got used to it.

In terms of the formula, it nicely coats the lashes and does provide nice lengthening results. You should see some of the pictures I tried to take – my lashes are so long that they actually curl at the top where the hit my eyelid! I love that aspect, but I would have loved to see a bit more volume and fullness. I already have pretty decent length so fullness is something I really like to see in my mascara. If you’re looking for a lengthening mascara though, this is a really great, affordable option; I get results similar to those that I see with Benefit’s Rollerlash Mascara.

When it comes to separation, I found that the classic mascara applicator side of the brush does a really good job on its own of fully coating and separating the lashes, but of course you do end up with small areas where the lashes can slightly clump together. The detailing tip, once you get used to it, does a really great job of separating and spacing out the lashes to help increase fullness of the lashes and give them a more defined look. I also found that this mascara has really great wear time. I can throw it on in the morning and it’s still in place at the end of the day without any flaking or traveling.
