I've Fallen Back In Love With.. Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation

 
In the summer just gone, Rimmel’s new foundation without a doubt took the beauty world by storm; flying off drugstore shelves and converting long-term lovers of high end foundation to the wonders of high street brands at a fraction of the cost. Retailing at around £8.99 when first released I hopped on the bandwagon and picked myself up a bottle of this in the shade 303 True Nude to match my tanned summer skin. When the summer tan faded away and left me pale as snow this foundation was reluctantly pushed to the back of a drawer, no longer matching my fair skin. Recently, I’ve been reaching for the fake tan to make myself a look a little more human and little less like Casper the friendly ghost so had to dig out a darker foundation in order to match up and welcomed the rekindled love of Rimmel’s Wake Me Up.
 
Don’t you just love it when you rediscover something that you used to love and question yourself about how you ever thought you’d found an appropriate replacement for it? What was I thinking purchasing a £20+ bottle of Clinique foundation in the lightest shade available to take the place of Wake Me Up when I could have just as easily run to Boots and spent less than a tenner on a lighter shade of Wake Me Up for the same high quality. Sucker. I don’t feel like this about all drugstore foundations though, or even the other foundations in Rimmel’s line; Wake Me Up is a bit of an exception.
 
This foundation offers medium coverage easily buildable to full coverage without looking at all cakey and it has that ever so slight hint of shimmer to give that real ‘wake up’ and brightening look to the skin. We all have those days where we get up and our skin just doesn't look it's greatest; a little on the dull side and looking for a well needed boost ..then all you'll need as a solution is a pump or two of this buffed in and all your glowing radiance will be restored! I absolutely love this foundation for daily wear and for the price (currently on offer for £5.99) the quality is exceptional.
 
A definite repurchase and set to be a long term favourite!

  2. I ADORE this foundation, the finish is absolutely gorgeous but it breaks me out so badly :(
    I still use it like once a week because it's such a shame not to use such a lovely foundation!

  5. I used to use this all the time as well but then starting wearing Estee Lauder double wear, which isn't helping my skin during the colder weather so might go back to this :D

  13. @Lauren Oh no! I hate trying new things and liking them but they break you out.. I've had this with nice cleanser before and it's so annoying! x

  14. @Helen Louise Oh I've seen lots of people mention that it doesn't fair well on oily skin.. I use a super mattifying primer before it which helps it last because I can get quite oily too :/ x

  15. @Sarah Dickinson I definitely think I'll keep on buying this again, and again! x

  16. @Megan Gelderd I switched from Double Wear to this Wake Me Up too and now I hate double wear - would never, ever be able to go back to it now! x

  17. @Beth Bradley This will definitely be what you're looking for then; lightweight and fresh and dewy but also has great coverage too! x

  18. @Helen Gray £4.99 is such a bargain! I don't have a savers anywhere near me but I'd be stocking up if I did - that's nearly half the price of what it is in Boots x

  19. @Roxy Haha, what are you waiting for, get out and repurchase whilst offers are on! x

  20. @AshleighGxoxo Definitely! It's always one that will never let me down, it's as good quality as a high end one like mac! x

  21. @Niki I'm not sure if they do or not but yes it's definitely worth you having a look for it, if not you can get it from Feel Unique which has free delivery worldwide! x
