Rimmel Wake me Up Foundation Review



This foundations is an honest medium coverage with off yellow, pinky  
undertones. One thing that drew me to the product in the first place was the fact it contains peptides. They are chains of amino acids that help illuminate and add elasticity to replenish skin. 
I prefer using my beauty blender to apply this foundation as opposed to a flat foundation brush as it creates a more dewy, flawless finish. I firstly pump a small amount of product to the back of my hand and distribute it evenly across my whole face. Then I use the tapered side of the sponge to buff the product into my skin, focusing mainly on under my eyes and the sides of my nose.  Then I dust a small amount of powder to my T zone. The powder I have been using is Clarins.

I love the overall outcome of this product as the coverage is very sheer and the hint of glitter gives skin a healthy, radiant glow. The neutral tones make it easy to blend and the pump applicator makes it easier to control how much product you are using.
However, the limited shades available lean slightly towards the orange side. I bought the shade Ivory which is the lightest available which looks great when first applied but fades  throughout the day.

I would not repurchase this foundation as there are so many more I would like to try but I will be keeping this is my collection. By the end of the day a lot of the colour has worn off and would need re applying but for £5.99 it's a steal.


Have you tried this foundation? What are your thoughts on it?

    1. I'm afraid I'm inclined to agree with this. My skin is combination and the colour had faded down by the end of the day. For oily skin, I think the product would fade and run even more.
