Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation in 200 Soft Beige
Packaging: I find that the packaging is quite lovely, I love that it has a bright orange lid and is moulded in an unique shape. Also, the bottle is glass so it doesn't feel 'cheap', like a few other drugstore foundations. This foundation has a pump dispenser, which is very convenient and extremely sanitary as you're not pouring tons of product out of the bottle!
Formulation: Rimmel's Wake Me Up foundation claims to provide an "Anti-fatigue effect + radiant glow" to your skin and to help "visibly reawakens and illuminates skin with a radiant glow and a flawless, natural looking finish". I'm glad to say that this foundation does not lie, it actually gives your skin a very flattering glow. I found that in the sunlight, my skin was highlighted in all the right areas and just made my face look brighter and more luminous. I found that the texture of the foundation was very smooth and did not leave my skin feeling or looking cakey after application and does feel light on the skin. I noticed that there are also extremely subtle shimmers included, which add to the effect of the 'radiant flow'.
I consider this foundation to be medium coverage, but can easily be buildable if you want to conceal any blemishes or uneven skin. It did last quite a long time on my skin, even after a busy at work it was still there when I got home. The only problem I do have with this foundation is that because it makes the skin beautifully luminous and has a dewy effect, it can make your skin look quite oily. My nose and chin can get quite oily at times, so it's important to keep some powder in your bag just for those little touch ups!
I surprisingly really like this foundation and will definitely be repurchasing it once I finish this bottle. I recommend those of you who haven't tried this foundation before to give it go, you'll be surprised how great it is. However, if you do tend to have an oiler completion or you like to have a matte face, then this isn't the foundation for you. I purchased this foundation at Priceline for about AUD$16 on special, it usually retails for about $19-20? Rimmel's Wake Me Up foundation can also be found at another chemists or department stores. Please let me know your opinions on the foundation! Did you like it, or hate it?
