Product Review: Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation

I have worn the same foundation for the last few years and have never had a problem with it so had no intention of changing to another one. However, on a recent trip to Superdrug, my shade of foundation was not in stock and I needed foundation quite urgently for going out last night. I was going to get the Bourjois Healthy Mix as I had heard rave reviews on my recent makeup course. I spotted the latest foundation from Rimmel as well and it looked quite good and promised to wake up tired skin (mine is probably the most tired skin around at the moment!). It also went on easily when I tried the tester so I bought it.

What they say:

"Wake Up and Glow!
Finally. Your new beauty partner that keeps up with your fast-paced lifestyle.
Introducing new Wake Me Up Foundation from Rimmel London. Rimmel’s first liquid foundation that instantly reawakens skin with a healthy, radiant glow.
It’s time to wake up – the light, smooth texture glides on easily to give a 100% pore-less and flawless complexion. Spoil yourself with SPF 15 sun protection and illuminating radiance pearls for a natural glow. A peptide formulation helps increase your skin’s elasticity and a vitamin moisturizing complex also leaves you looking healthy and fresh. Your skin will bounce back to life – even if your body is thinking otherwise.
No longer do you have to face fatigue in the mirror. Immediately eliminates visible signs of tiredness so skin looks rejuvenated. Also minimising signs of premature ageing. Wake Me Up works just as hard as you – staying put for up to 10 hours and giving you a natural, medium to full coverage. So even if you’ve had a few hours sleep, you can look radiant and younger.
Let last night’s late bedtime be a secret. Discover beauty sleep in a bottle, from Rimmel London"

What I say:

I was dubious about trying a new foundation having been so happy with my old one. However, I liked the packaging of this foundation as it was nice and bright (which goes well with what it promises to achieve). It quite heavy, which made me feel I was getting more for my money, although this is more likely due to it being in a glass dispenser! I liked that only a small amount of product came out when you pumped it as it means less wastage. I did use a few pumps, but this was mainly because my skin looked awful. The foundation provides great coverage, all my red skin and blemishes were covered well with not too much product. I also loved how dewy it made my skin. I did look a lot more awake after applying it.

This is my skin with just the foundation on. I think it is a really good colour match and will definitely be using this again. I have only worn it this morning so cannot comment on how long it lasts (I am dubious any foundation can last as long as they promise) but so far, I am happy with this foundation and would recommend it to others.


5/5 Cannot fault it. Good price (£8.99), good coverage and makes my skin glow!
