Rimmel – Wake me up foundation retails at a very reasonable £7.99 and can be bought from any drug store. Aesthetically it looks average with its cheap orange lid, but the price to quantity value is good. This bottle will keep you going for a while.
I have purchased it in ‘Ivory’ because I am fairly pale. On first inspection I noticed that the foundation has a touch of sparkle to it. I personally prefer the illusion of glowing skin by using extra hydration than the slightly more obvious use of glitter. In saying this, its fairly subtle in this product.
The coverage is medium and build able. The shades are limited and while I am not the palest person in the world ‘Ivory’ was far too orange for my skin. My biggest issue how ever is its tendency to flake on application, so I would recommend moisturising your skin well and using a brush to apply it.
Dry skin types should definitely avoid this foundation. It is not a suitable product for your skin.
