RIMMEL WAKE ME UP FOUNDATION REVIEW

£5.99 currently on offer at boots

After hearing great things about this product, I thought I'd give it a try. I've used other Rimmel foundations before and they're definitely my favourite high street brand for foundations. I got this in shade 103 True Ivory, because I've not wanted to bother with fake tanning and have decided to admit defeat and be pale for the next couple of months! I've been absolutely loving this foundation, it's really light and lovely, with a light/ medium but buildable coverage. I like to apply this with my real techniques buffing brush, but I actually prefer the finish it gives when I apply this with my fingers. This gives a lovely natural, glowy finish. When this first came out, I passed off the 'Anti-Fatigue- effect and 'Radiant Glow- as gimmicks, but after trying it I really do see it! I often feel my skin looks dull in the winter and this definitely perks me up and makes me look more alive. As for the lasting power, this is actually really good. It seems to last all day without much trouble, I set this with a loose powder and it stays looking lovely all day. Love it!

Have you tried this foundation? Would you like to?

  1. I bought two of these when they first came out to test the colours mixed together. I agree they blend in lovely with your fingers. Makes you feel more awake and more confident to face the early mornings! Great review x

  4. I really want to try this product but I have been put of by reading reviews saying 'in direct sunlight your skin looks really glittery?'

    1. I haven't really noticed it being too glittery, although I have to say we haven't had a lot of real sunlight lately! xo

  5. I really like this too! The first time I tried it I was full of the cold and my skin was so dry, it just absorbed into my skin and I was mad, but I tried again after the cold and it really is a lovely foundation! it's my total go to day to day foundation now x

  13. Hi Chloe,

    I have also heard so many good things about this foundation, I'm really trying to use a few of the ones I have up before buying anymore, but I find my eyes drawn to it every time I walk past a Rimmel stand! I'll try and hold out a little while...
