Rimmel Long Lasting Finish 25H Foundation with Comfort Serum

Rimmel is one of those brands that has a few cult classics you constantly hear about but otherwise sometimes gets forgotten.  After hearing about this drugstore foundation forever now, I knew I had to try it out!
Instant perfect coverage that feels extra comfortable and lasts all day
- Blends flawlessly, seamlessly, instantly and easily into the skin
- Sweat, heat, humidity and transfer proof for up to 25 hours

Price: $4.79 @ Target
Amount: 1 fluid ounce / 30 ml
Shades: 7 Shades

I bought this foundation in 100 Ivory and 200 Nude Beige.  I bought Nude Beige first, but it's definitely more my summer color so I bought Ivory too since I thought this was going to be a keeper.  Ivory is perfect for my winter shade {see shade comparisons below}.

Rimmel 25H Foundation in 100 Ivory, nothing else
After wearing this quite a few times in both shades, I can say I really like it!  I've learned that you need to use a light hand with it, because it's full coverage right from the get-go.  Two coats is really not necessary with this foundation and leads to looking over the top and way too much, in my opinion.

The claims of the foundation being sweat, heat, and humidity proof are pretty dead on.  I wore this on day we were on vacation in Virginia and wasn't expecting the day to be as hot as it turned out to be, and this stuff stayed put!  No running or dripping off.

I've tried this with a few different powders, including the Rimmel Stay Matte and they all look great. 

The only downside is that you definitely will feel this on your face.  It's not heavy or pore-clogging, but not one of those ones where it feels super natural and like nothing either.  So if that bothers you, then this might not be a foundation for you.  It's not noticeably to bother me though.  There are also only seven shades, and not many for my darker skinned beauties, so that's a big bummer.

Overall, great foundation, makes everything look super flawless!  If you love Revlon ColorStay, check out Rimmel Long Lasting Finish 25H foundation!

Simple Addiction | Outfit in a Box

Simple Addiction is a website that offers clothing for adults and kids, home goods, as well as accessories like jewelry and shoes.

I got a chance to try out their Outfit in a Box, which sends you three pieces all coordinated to match and be worn together.  Some outfits include two tops and leggings, while others have a top, legging, and an accessory like a piece of jewelry or scarf.  There are many styles and prints to choose from, and there is sure to be one for everyone's sense of style. 

If you are terrible at pairing outfits like I am, the fact that you can get a complete outfit already paired and matched is fantastic.  On top of that, it comes right to your door!  I tend to pair basic boring solids and not go to much out of my comfort zone with colors or prints, so Outfit in a Box is a great service for me.

I chose the Millie Outfit which originally retails for $44.99 but was on sale for $32.99.  The Millie includes a 3/4 sleeve camo top, army green leggings, and a sparkly necklace.

The Millie - Top, Leggings, AND Necklace

The camo top reminds me of the Randy T from LuLaRoe in the buttery leggings material and the Simple Addiction leggings are almost a dupe for the LuLaRoe leggings too!  So if you love the buttery softness of LuLaRoe but not the price tag, check these out!  Both pieces are so super comfy and the army green is totally up my ally!

New outfits for Outfit in a Box are introduced every Saturday around 7:30am.  They're listed for 2 days, or until sold out.
