Product Review - Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation

Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation Review

I recently reviewed Rimmel Wake Me Up Highlighter - when I purchased that I also picked up the new Wake Me Up Foundation. I've waited a bit longer for this review though because I really wanted to give it a good go before giving you a review! I have bee using shade: True Ivory

The foundation comes in glass packaging which I love, a lot of drugstore foundations come in plastic containers which are lighter for your makeup bag but I personally think the glass bottle adds a bit more of an expensive feel!
The foundation is a liquid formula - when pumped onto the back of my hand it is runnier then most foundations but not in a bad way... it's not running down your hand and dripping on the floor!

This foundation is Medium coverage - it feels amazing on, really light and breathable and doesn't look caked on. Mmmm cake.  I apply mine with a Mac 187 brush which really helps blend it in to get a flawless look but you could use your fingers, beauty blender or whichever method you prefer!

I don't really reapply my makeup throughout the day but what I like about this foundation is how fresh and natural it looks as the day goes on. It really sinks in and lets your natural skin glow through. I know it sounds corny but this whole Anti-Fatigue stuff really does seem to give your skin a gorgeous healthy look - lets be honest when I just wake up I do not look great (more like a freshly bitten zombie walking through my house!)

Rating 5/5

I am reaching for this foundation more and more, it's even over taken my Mac Tinted Moisturiser because it has such a great natural look for every day. So glad I purchased it and would highly recommend it, great value for money.

  3. This looks lovely on your skin. I have this but found it a bit too oily and shiny for me. I felt the same way about the concealer but I love it now!
