Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation Review.. ♥

I am a regular user of the Rimmel 24 Hour liquid foundation, which I love and am very happy with. However after reading numerous glowing reviews from beauty bloggers about the Wake Me Up foundation, I thought I should try it out too. The foundation comes in 6 shades, the one I bought is True Nude (303).
Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation Review
Wake Me Up is Rimmel’s first liquid foundation that instantly reawakens skin with a healthy, radiant glow. The first thing I noticed about the foundation, is that it shimmers and has little glittery particles in it. This comes from the illuminating radiance pearls that help to give a natural glow.

The foundation is in a clear glass bottle, with Rimmel embossed along the side. The lid is made of plastic, which is coloured in orange, coordinating with the Wake Me Up name on the front. The foundation comes out of a push-action pump, which dispenses a small amount of the product with each push.

The foundation has a very light texture; it smoothes on the skin easily and I found that it made my complexion look almost flawless, and decreased visability of pores. I only needed to use one pump which provided enough foundation for me to use, whilst still giving a thorough cover.

Rimmel claim that the peptide formulation helps increase your skin’s elasticity and a vitamin moisturising complex also leaves you looking healthy and fresh. It helps your skin to bounce back to life, and aims to make you look more awake, by eliminating any signs of tiredness.

It also stays put all day. It claims to last up to 10 hours, and I find it lasts around 8/9 hours. It gives you a light, natural looking coverage, and the shimmering particles help you to lok more radiant. As you can see from the swatch photo, it blends in perfectly, whilst still providing a matte base. 
Overall, I love the natural look of this foundation, and the flawless effect it has on my skin. I think I will be using this as my day-to-day foundation from now on, maybe switiching to the equally as good (but heavier) 25 hour foundation for nights out. 
 This foundation retails for £8.99.

    A great price and it seems to work really well. I'm always worried with foundations that claim to be 'radiance boosting' as I think they will have tons of shimmer but this looks really natural.

    Hey, I was just wondering with the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation do you put a light powder on afterwards or do you leave it? 🙂

      I do use a light powder over the top 🙂 Infact I use 2true powder from Superdrug which is only £1.99! x
