Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation.

(Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation - Ivory & Mac Studio Sculpt - NC15)

Before I start nattering on about this product in particular I just wanna say, I really really love Rimmel atm. I think they've picked up their game so much in the last year. They never really use to be a brand i'd shop at but now with these release of so many great/discovery of maybe older products I can't get enough. Anyways down to business!

This foundation has nearly everything I would want in a foundation so surely it should be the perfect foundation? Well it claims to make your skin look healthy, give it a radiant glow and give 100% coverage over pores all while giving you a flawless natural finish. Having combination skin and not the most well behaved pores, i'm sold already!

If I'm honest (which obviously you want me to be) I do really like this foundation. I find it isn't heavy on my skin but it does make my skin look flawless, glowing and healthy and also Yes once again Rimmel you let me down with you range of shades in foundation! Admittedly I am very pale but there is paler out there than me so there is a massive group in the market that are missing out once again. Saying that I do still use this foundation on a daily basis but I mix it with paler foundations so I don't look like i've dunked my face into a bowl of fake tan. Once I've mixed it with something like my Mac studio sculpt in NC15 i'm good to go!

Like I said my biggest draw back of this product is shade range but if you are darker than me or don't mind mixing foundations then I really do recommend this product! I feel my skin looks more awake and perky while wearing this and it does last all day. I have combination skin and i'm always scared off dewy looking foundations with the fear that it'll just run off my nose (the oil headquarters)  after 30 mins. This stays put, as long as you're sensible and powder then it really will work for a whole range of skin types. For the price of this product I feel you can't really go wrong.

If you were interested in trying this foundation right now is perfect timing! It's £3 off in Boots atm making it £5.99, see here. £6 for a bottle of very decent but questionable colouring foundation (that what mixing and blending is all about) who can go wrong?

Have you tried this foundation? What were your thought?

Thanks for reading.



  1. Even though I love my Wake Me Up Foundation, I agree, it was so difficult picking the correct shade for my skin. I was in between a shade that was far too light and one that was far too dark! I went for the lighter option to be on the safe side & just add bronzer.

    1. It's so bad isn't it, if their shade range was better this would be perfect! Always a good shout :) x

  2. I was gonna get this the other day but ended up getting Maybelline's Fit Me. x
