Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation

Even when I find a high street foundation I like I'm always intrigued in what other brands have to offer and for one reason or another I have never gotten around to purchasing this well hyped offer from Rimmel.

I am probably the last blogger to own this but the Rimmel ‘Wake Me Up’ foundation finally has a place on my dressing table. First of all I love that it comes in a glass bottle with a pump, all foundations should come like this.

The product itself applies very easily and one pump is more than enough to give me the perfect even coverage. My favourite part of this is the finish, I am can now say that this is fully worth the hype as it gives a beautifully healthy look to my skin, like it really has ‘woken’ my skin up, which let’s face it, most of us need in these cold and dark mornings.

The staying power is great, I use this over my Clarins Instant Smooth Primer and it lasts all day. For a high street foundation I'm so impressed and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this if you’re looking for an affordable product that does the job, I wish I'd picked this up sooner.

Have you tried 'Wake me up'? What's your current favourite foundation?


  1. i loved this foundation last summer, will have to dig it out again!

  2. I love the finish when I first apply it but find it doesn't last very long on my skin. Never used it with a primer so maybe that would help. x

  3. I love the sound of this but doubt it would last on my skin :)

  4. I havent yet tried this, but everyone does seem to either love it or hate it xx


  5. I'll admit I'm not a huge fan of this as I have discoloured skin and I find the small 'glitter' particles seem to highlight this, however I've seen friends wearing it and it looks so lovely on them. I guess not everything works for everyone! Rimmel Match perfection is my favourite at the moment, though. x

  6. I'm all about Illamasqua foundation but I have used this when I've been running low and I do like it.
