Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation

Sssh. Can you keep a secret?


A little birdie, a while ago, whispered to me about Rimmel 'Wake me Up' foundation as a really great hight street brand.  I hadn't used Rimmel since I was about 18 so was a bit sceptical, but oh my she was right.

Rimmel have totally upped their game with this one.

I spend an absolute fortune on make up -  especially foundation -  since I use it everyday.  I really needed a good day wear foundation that was affordable to replace whilst giving me the best possible coverage for during the day so I could keep my more expensive brands for the weekend or special occasions.

This comes in a really nice glass bottle with a lovely orange lid and pump - compared to their old plastic tubes that I used to buy.

The Ivory shade is perfect for my pale skin tone and blends well into the skin giving me a flawless look.

The liquid isn't too heavy and feels light on the skin.
'Introducing Rimmel Wake Me Up, our first makeup that instantly reawakens skin with a healthy, radiant glow and minimises premature skin ageing.
A light, smooth texture for natural, 100% poreless coverage instantly eliminates signs of tiredness and lifts skin from fatigue. Radiance pearls illuminate for a healthy, radiant glow. Flawless natural finish. Peptides increase elasticity so skin recovers and bounces back more quickly. SPF 15 protects.'
6 Shades.
I haven't been using this long enough to state whether I believe that it will reduce premature skin ageing will have to update this post in 5 or so years.  

Pair this with an ivory powder and you are good to go.  I can honestly say that this stays put through out the day - well unless i've been doing excessive exercise (she chuckles..hardly) or been out in the pouring rain. 

So can you keep my secret?

  6. I've nearly picked this up a few times, but always see reviews describing it as dewy and light coverage. I usually prefer heavy matte foundations haha but maybe I'll have to take another look x
