Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation

After reading a lot about Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation via various other beauty blogs and hearing that it really is a great drugstore foundation, I thought I would give it a try. Currently this foundation is not available in the US so I had to order it from Wake Me Up Foundation promises to instantly re-awaken skin with a healthy, radiant looking glow. It also says that it will eliminate visible signs of tiredness and premature ageing and help fake a daisy-fresh glow by disguising the look of pores, fine lines, and wrinkles and giving an even, flawless, but natural-looking finish for up to 10 hours.

There are only six shades available in this formula, which is kind of a bummer because you don’t know if the color will be an exact match but I decided to try the second to lightest shade True Ivory (#103). When I first received this product, the shade looked a little dark in the bottle compared to other foundations I have, mostly Chanel foundations in B20, but surprisingly it matches my summer skin tone quite nicely. Wake Me Up has a light fresh scent which is soft and not overwelming. The formula glides on with ease without feeling heavy or thick and is easy to blend, it didn’t settle into my fine lines at all. Coverage is medium with a natural, slightly dewy finish, which probably comes from the illuminating radiance pearls. I found that this foundation does really awaken the skin and gives your face a fresh glow. It set well on my oily with the addition of some pressed powder and it lasted for around 8 hours which is pretty good to me.


  1. I also ordered this off ASOS but it's still not here yet. I'm just wondering what country it you live in and how many business days it took to get to you? :)
