I'm back with another product review, this time I am sharing my experience with Rimmel's latest hype the "Wake Me Up Foundation" and unfortunately I was EXTREMELY unimpressed :(
I feel like people will be throwing shoes at their computers when they read me dissing this "holygrail" product but I can't help it I honestly can't believe how bad it looked on me! (That bad, I wouldn't even dare to put a picture up online!)
Wake Me Up Foundation is a liquid foundation claiming to awaken skin with a radiant, healthy glow. It is designed to eliminate signs of tiredness and ensure that you have the appearance of someone who has had a full nights sleep. In my case it lay on my skin like I had applied a layer of lard to my face despite setting it with powder. In my mum's words "It looks like you could cook a fry on your face!" Cheers mum!
I normally switch between M.A.C's fix fluid foundation in NC42 and Rimmel's 25hour lasting foundation in the shade #400 and to this day despite trying numerous foundations I am yet to find a foundation that beats or even matches these.
Coverage; I would say there is medium coverage with this foundation, you defo still need under eye concealer. However despite claims that this is "beauty sleep in a bottle" it looked like I had the night before makeup on! The dewy look turned into a greasy/oily finish. Perhaps this is simply due to my skin type however I have always suffered from dry skin so I found how oily I looked so strange!
Colour; The colour was ok, it was slightly dark in comparison to my 25hour foundation which was in the same 400shade. It comes in 7shades so there is a decent variety to chose from.
Packaging; The packaging is in a nice, chunky glass bottle with a plastic pump dispenser which allows you to control the amount of product that comes out without it spilling everywhere. Unlike Estee Lauder and some other foundations
Price; I paid €10.95 for this in Boots, which is quite expensive for a high street foundation. But I would happily pay this if I liked it.
Would I repurchase?;No definitely not.
I hate slagging off products but I really was so shock at how oily my face was left despite setting it with my usual setting powder (Rimmel's Matte Powder)
However I didn't use my Gosh primer before applying which may have helped.
I feel like I am the sole blogger who was unimpressed by this foundation but I felt I had to be honest and hopefully help some of you save your pennies instead of buying a product that you will regret!
