Rimmel London Lasting Finish Foundation

My section for foundations in the makeup drawer is getting a bit ridiculous. It's that time again when I resolve to do a clean out and keep only the ones I really like and use often. This Rimmel one has been on my undecided list for a long time now with several pros and cons I've found along the way.

Let's start with the consistency. This foundation is an overly thick liquid foundation and therefore tough to blend out. In the images you can see where it kind of left a line at my hairline where I must not have blended over hard enough. Because it is so thick it gets overly caked up in my brushes on one use, yuck! The good side to it being this consistency is how full coverage it is, it also lasts on my skin very well. I've gotten an easy 12 hours out of it. I've yet to try it for 25 hours to test that over extravagant claim, it does begin to break up around my problem areas at that 12 hour mark though.  A nice detail is that It's easy to remove at the end of the night, a basic cleanser does the trick.

 I chose this specific shade: 203 Beige when I was very self tanned. On a normal day, it would not match my neck at all. 
The glass bottle is nice with it's red lid but no pump is included so you end up with far too much product being poured out at a time. 

 It is matte in finish so it suits me well in the summer time when my t-zone is oily. If you have overly dry skin I would definitely skip this one for that exact reason. Scents normally never bother me but this one is highly perfumed, not chemical like, but just a bit too much when I'm applying it. It comes with the typical 1 oz. of product and at somewhere around $6.99 it's very decent for a drugstore product. 

I'm not quite ready to chuck this product in the bin but it's certainly not one of my most used or most beloved foundations. I'm close to finishing it off  now, probably since so much product is wasted with each use. I obviously don't see myself repurchasing it in the future. If you are looking for a really full coverage foundation with long lasting abilities, you may find you love this one. If you cannot tolerate heavily perfumed makeup or have super dry skin, you may want to avoid it. 

Have you given this foundation a try? If you have, what did you think of it? If you haven't do you want to? Are there any foundations you'd like to recommend to me?
