Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation

Despite the lack of posts I am still alive, although I would rather not be due to the large amount of A level revision I have been doing, hence why I've been pretty poo on the blogging front.
 I just NEEDED to express my love for this foundation, although I may seem extremely late on the whole blogging hype that once surrounded it I bought this a while ago and was extremely disappointed when the shade I had (100 Ivory) was far too dark despite being the lightest one I could find in store. Since the weather in England is surprisingly great right now I have had a spray tan to stop me from looking like death and this foundation is now a perfect match.



Packaging is pretty standard, I would say the colour matches the name very well.

I like the fact this foundation has a pump, makes getting the right amoun
t hassle free.

As I mentioned I have been revising my life a way so I am tired 24/7 and when I am not revising I occasionally brace the outside world with my presence and I have found this foundation has prevented small children from screaming at the sight of me it gives a lovely natural looking 'glow' to the skin and the I would say is medium coverage, for me the staying power was great, but I have dry skin so I do not know how it would last on other skin types. With this foundation I would definitely say a little goes a long way, I use my beauty blender to apply as I do all my foundations. I would say it is a great spring summer foundation as it also contains SP15 and gives a healthy looking glow, I have seen many reviews where people have moaned about the shimmer, although I haven't noticed that- no looking like Edward from Twilight for me- what a shame (not). The worst thing about this foundation for me is the smell, in my opinion it smells absolutely awful; I have never seen anyone else complain about the smell though so perhaps just me being fussy.
For such a cheap foundation I cannot complain it makes the most tired of A level students look awake and that's enough to impress me, I think it was also on a 3 for 2 in Boot's as it regularly is when I picked up mine so was an absolute bargain.

  4. My friends get on well this foundation, but I personally don't! I have oily/combo skin and find it hard to match to shades, so I get on better with brands where I can have a colour match x

  13. I loved the foundation but I much preferred Rimmel's Stay Matte liquid mousse foundation. It's perfect for girls with oily skin!

  18. I've never tried this foundation before but I've tried the Match Perfection one. It's a nice foundation but it works better with dry skin than with me as I have combination skin! Xx

  19. I too have this foundation in ivory and find it's very orangy! Annoying as it's a lovely foundation otherwise! Great review :)
