Throwback Thursday: Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation

Whenever I need to wear a foundation, I always gravitate toward either this one, or for more special occasions Laura Mercier Silk Creme. The reason for this is 'casue it's bloomin' well amazing.

Coverage wise I'd say it's a good medium with the room to build upon. It doesn't feel heavy on the face and can definitely cover up any minor scarring you may have. I prefer applying it with either my fingers or a damp sponge for a lighter and more natural finish.

In terms of finish if you prefer a more matte look than I would maybe steer clear. This definitely does have the radiant glow it advertisers, however no need to worry, no Edward Cullen lookalikes happen after. 

If you're looking for a purse friendly, radiant inducing foundation, I reckon this should be your next purchase.

Have you tried this? What do you think?

  1. Ooh, definitely a TBT for me! Haha, this was my first foundation purchase. I used to wear it all the time though but I think I got the wrong shade - it's a bit dark for me now! Love the radiant glow it gives though!

  2. I have this and do reach for it now and then as it gives a nice finish however, it doesn't last that well on me so I only use it when I don't need my make-up to last for more than a few hours. x

  3. I think I'm the only person who didn't like this foundation, they didn't have a colour that matched my skin! :(

  4. I really need to try this out but i'm too scared to pick the wrong shade of this when i'm in the stores where the artificial lighting is quite strong..but i guess that i will eventually pick one of these up as my skin is turning into dry now and i need a more dewy finish foundation as opposed to mattifiying which i usually go for.

    Thank you for posting, i hope you have a great day! <3
