After hearing every Youtube guru talk and seeing every blogger write about it, I decided to get the ever so popular Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation. I've been testing out this foundation for a few weeks now and I wanted to share what I think about it with you.
First of all, I paid about €15 for it, which is not the cheapest price for a drugstore foundation. But then again, everything in Italy is overpriced. About the packaging, I really like the fact that it comes in a glass bottle - it feels a bit more expensive!
The very first thing that you notice when applying this foundation are the glitter particles, which I find quite big and noticeable. However, you can't really see them from a distance - that's why I think this foundation is best worn in a sunny day, if you're not planning anything that requires close encounter! It has a creamy consistency and it glides onto the skin with no effort. This foundation provides a light to medium coverage; it will definitely cover up red areas, but for spots you'll need concealer.
I have oily skin and this foundation will give a dewy look by itself, so I like to wear it applying some blotting powder to the oilier areas on my face. However, I've worn this foundation for 6+ hours without problem.
I find the Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation the perfect foundation to brighten up a tired face on a Monday morning! Have you tried it? What do you think about it? x
PS: I'm selling a Smashbox Photo Finish Color Correcting Adjust for €15 on Ebay! Is anyone interested? (:
