Rimmel Lasting Finish Minerals Loose Powder Foundation Review


Hi All,

I was rummaging through  my vanity earlier last month while packing for a trip and found this foundation I’d bought last year. For the life of me I couldn’t recall why I’d forgotten about it despite it being placed in the frontal part of the drawer. So I decided to take this with me while travelling to use it and check it out more in an effort to recall. Suffice to say, I did remember….wanna know more? Read on..

My take on Rimmel Lasting Finish Minerals Loose Powder Foundation: –


  • Packaging: This powder comes in a small, plastic round sifter tub with a screw top lid. It’s not very sturdy and the lid does seem like it would crazk after 1 fall. It comes with a teeny tiny brush which looks like the tiniest of Kabuki’s. It’s honestly of no use but it’s just so damn cute!Rimmel Lasting Finish Minerals Review + rimmel foundation
  • Price:  Below 3 pounds. I don’t recall how much I got this for here though. I think it was close to 500bucks.
  • Quantity:  6.5gms

  • Coverage & Usage: Coverage? WHAT COVERAGE?? No points for figuring out the coverage of this..It’s not even a light coverage powder..Seriously…I have used this with a powder puff and with a powder brush as well but even then it’s of no use. Other than blotting out a bit of oiliness this doesn’t really conceal anything or even out the skin.
  • Texture: The powder being mineral kinds is really soft and finely milled. Feels like silk!

  • Staying Power: I have no idea how this can be targeted for long stay…especially since it doesn’t stay for even 2hrs straight! Yea..Its more like a dusting loose powder to blot out the oiliness.
  • Cost & Availability: This brand is a very affordable drugstore brand in the US and is actually one of the most affordable brands around.

My Verdict: I would give this a miss for sure. Especially if one is targeting a foundation. This is absolutely NOT a foundation. At the most it can be used as a finishing powder. Otherwise this does absolutely nothing. I was hoping for atleast light to medium coverage but unfortunately this doesn’t even do that. Mineral powders are known for a lot of good things but I can’t see even 1 plus point of this product in terms of it being a foundation.

Here’s how it looks when blended….Do you any change at all??? Coz I see none..

  • Fragrance free
  • Non-acnegenic
  • Would be a good finishing powder.
  • Get a cute brush with this.

Cons of Rimmel Lasting Finish Minerals Loose Powder Foundation:-

  • For all its positives, it doesn’t fulfill the basic point of its purchase…To be worn as a foundation!
  • Lighter than light coverage and doesn’t even out the skin tone.
  • Not available in India (not that this is a huge minus since this is such a huge dud!)


Ratings: –

  • Pigmentation: 2/5
  • Packaging: 3.5/5

Would I repurchase: Nope. As a finishing powder it’s pretty nice, but definitely not for a foundation.

  6. Oops such a dud!! bt dat kabuki brush is so cute :-*

    • i agree..that baby buki is the best! its so tiny n cute!

      i dont have any idea bout stores in delhi tho….maybe someone else from delhi wud hav an idea..

  7. It is not meant to be used as foundation people. It is meant to cover foundation not to be used as foundation. Meaning you put on foundation then put on the powder if you’re not going to put anything else after the foundation. The finish powder is normally applied after you finish your whole make up application to bring back that natural lookThis is a great product! Go Rimmel…
