Rimmel Recover Foundation

Best for : Anyone with fairly good skin who likes a slightly shimmery finish

Why : This gives a gorgeous radiant glow to the skin but the coverage is quite light so I wouldn’t opt for this if my skin has a lot of blemishes or redness (which is often the case unfortunately) I know a lot of people much prefer a nice matte finish to their skin but this is loaded with teensy tiny glitter particles so might not suit everyone!

Coverage : Light. As someone who has suffered from acne this is the kinda product I always wanted to use but there were maybe only a few days each month where my skin behaved well enough to allow me to get away with such light coverage. The end result is flattering, subtle and gives a lovely luminosity to the skin which I really like but if you’re after a decent coverage foundation then I don’t recommend this one

Price : Around £7.00

Other stuff : According to the packaging this gives all day coverage but I don’t think that’s the case. I usually find that I have to reapply this to my t-zone after about 5 or 6 hours

Hello! nice review!
This foundation have glitter or particles? or gives a healthy glow and radiant skin? (Sorry for my bad english)
Thanks! <3

Jakii this gives a lovely subtle glow and although there are little glitter particles they aren't too obvious. I imagine most people would just see it as a nice healthy luminosity and not glittery bits! If you have ever used Revlons Photoready this is kinda similar :)
