Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation

I love a good foundation, who doesn't and while I was in the high street this caught my eye, now everyone loves the wake me up concealer even me, so I thought it only common sense to try the foundation.

I picked this up in the lightest shade, and when I looked at the colour against my other bottles of foundation this was a lot lighter then I originally thought, once I have applied the foundation it is  very light, so I had to get the next shade up (100 Ivory) so that I could mix them.

I mixed both the foundations into a cream jar that I got from Superdrug for 99p, I put in equal parts of both so that the colour wouldn't be uneven. Once mixed the colour started to look really good not too light and not too dark.

Colour matching out of the way lets get on to how it applies, the foundation is a light/medium coverage foundation so good for Spring/Summer when you only want a light foundation on your face, but for us oily faced girls I would give this foundation a miss. After a while the foundation starts to go a bit patchy and that isn't a good look and so this foundation for me turned out to be a big big miss as it just can't deal with my skin type and the colour matching wasn't that great either.

Overall applies to the face well but goes patchy on oily skin after a while, not one of my favourites this year

Thanks for tuning in



  1. Thanks for the honest review - shame it didn't work out for you, it seems lovely and light otherwise :o) Xx

    1. Thanks for the comment, when I applied it, it was really light and didn't feel to heavy on the face, a great foundation for the oncoming hot weather, but it mustn't be able to deal with combination skin as I just started to get patches through the day.
