Hello, today I’m bringing you a review of Rimmel’s Wake Me Up Foundation- something everyone and their mother have been blogging about.
Previously I have only tried matte foundations, which at the end of the day weren’t doing the dry patches of my skin any favours (The product would gather and cling to certain patches on my face). I’d heard a lot about this particular foundation aiming to give a ‘dewey’ finish or ‘radiant glow’- worth a try, right? Especially with how tired and dull my skin looks as a result of little sleep. It blends really well with my stippling brush from Real Techniques and it contains little glittery bits that shimmer in the light (don’t worry, it’s not too much) adding to the radiance and wide-awake look. As for coverage, I’d say it was medium. It conceals flushed cheeks and redness, but I’m still in need of a concealer to hide those blemishes. This foundation lasts throughout the day pretty well, especially with the stay matte powder, also from Rimmel. In my opinion, this product is best-suited to people with normal/dry skin. However, with a trusty powder that you can rely on, it can work for everyone.
You can pick this up pretty much everywhere, such as here on Boots.com and there are six shades to choose from. I have 100 Ivory, which is the palest one available but still a little dark/orangey for me, but nothing that a bit of blending can’t handle. Have you tried this? If so, what do you think?
