Christmas has come and gone and the majority of us are dieting, reevaluating our lives and broke!! So we find ourselves trying to justify if we really need to splurge or simply can’t afford it! Well, fear not, I’ve a series of ‘Splurge or Save’ beauty posts coming up.
This week I’m looking at a Splurge or Save which is a massive part of our makeup collection. After layering up over Christmas, January shows the end of the foundation bottle for most. So here’s my foundation save recommendation!
I’ve been an Estée Lauder Double Wear girl for 12 years, it’s always been the foundation I turn to if I want a long lasting, full coverage foundation but I was pleasantly surprised when I tried RIMMEL Lasting Finish Foundation. Available in 7 different shades, it offers full coverage that isn’t drying on the skin, thanks to the added comfort serum. Both are transfer and fade proof and I can personally vouch here! Due to my oily skin I do have a tendency to have a shiny t-zone after a few hours so I opted to use a loose translucent powder too and that really does hold back the dreaded shine.
RIMMEL Lasting Finish €9.99*
(€7.99 on offer in Boots for a limited period of time)
While I will always be sure to have a stock of Double Wear (my first love!), I opt for my RIMMEL every day. In fact, I can’t remember the last time I actually opted for Double Wear over my RIMMEL!
