Review: Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation

I can't even believe that I manage to finish foundations so quickly! And I am the only one using it, just to be clear... Haha. Anyway, I'm back with another drugstore foundation review.
I'm not sure if I ever tried any of the Rimmel London foundations before but as far as I can remember... this is my first Rimmel foundation. After I finished my Bourjois healthy mix foundation I was looking for something new to try and my eye catched this Rimmel one.
Price: £8.99
About. The main reason why I decided to go for this foundation is because it has tiny little shimmer inside it. It gives you a bit of highlighter effect and catches the light beautifully. And I love it so much. After almost a month of using it I could agree that it gives a healthy and radiant look to your skin as well. But to be honest this look doesn't last too long. After 3-4 hours I can already notice that foundation starts to crease around my nose, under my eyes and on my chin. It also gets really shiny, so if I'm at work I always need to remember to check and apply some powder on the top. If we come back to the positive side- another great thing that it has SPF20 in it, so it helps to protect the face even though it's only the end of the winter. It also gives quite a light/medium coverage but at the same time covers all the redness and spots. Although I still use the concealer.
Color. Ok, so this is the thing you need to be very careful about. As I have pretty light skin at the moment, at the time when I was buying it I didn't really check the color. Usually I just take one of the lightest one they have I can be sure that it's gonna be perfect. This is what I did this time as well. I took the lightest one in the store (100 Ivory) and only after I applied it for the very first time I realised that it's way too dark for me! I mean not like I couldn't wear it... but still a little bit noticeable. So I am not too sure if it's just me couldn't find the right color? Or their foundations are not for the pale skin people? I just checked online and can see that they have one more color before the Ivory- True Nude. But it just looks even darker for me...
Overall. I think the only thing I like about this foundation is the shimmer formula... I'm sure Rimmel has way more better quality products. I would recommend to try it only if you're quite tanned/ have darker skin than me and your skin is not oily. Maybe you'll love it.
Am I going to buy it again? No.

  1. I might give this a go since I have quite a medium skin tone so I might be able to find a good colour match.
