Rimmel London Wake Me Up Foundation Review


This is only half a pump of the foundation.

I must say, when I first got this foundation I didn't particularly like it. I was used to using my dearly loved Dream Matte Mousse by Maybelline New York, after having it for about 3 months I decided I should give it ago and 1 month later I love it.

I got it in the shade Ivory along with the Wake Me Up concealer. It is available in 6 shades: True Nude, Natural Beige, Classic Beige, Soft Beige, True Ivory and Ivory. It was 8.99 or 899 points from Boots!

The packaging was what first caught my eye. The gorgeous orange cap along with the dashing bottle - who could say no? There were only a couple left on the shelve so I grabbed one and was on my way to the checkout along with the concealer!

A couple of days ago I was talking to one of my good friends Abby about the Wake Me Up range and what we think about it. She told me that it was part of her everyday makeup and she loves how well it applies to the skin. I agree with her 100%, whether you apply it with your fingers, a brush or a sponge it goes on perfectly. It gives you a perfect glow and a beautiful natural look which is a life saver if you go to a school where it is forbidden to wear makeup of any sort!

When I apply it I only use around 1½ pumps to cover my whole face - if not less. I use my essential foundation brush by Real Techniques which works perfectly, I highly recommend that brush! I then put on a dab of Wake Me Up Concealer if the foundation failed to cover up a few spots and then apply my Rimmel Stay Matte Powder to set the makeup. It is a perfect natural makeup routine which I do regularly.

Overall I really like this foundation and it is going to be one of my favourites for a while. I trust Rimmel when buying my makeup as I have never had any problems with the products I have bought from them.

 I would love to read any of your Wake Me Up reviews so post a link in the comments below!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. 

Keep smiling :)
