Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation Review 100 Ivory & 103 True Ivory ❤

Hi Lovelies!
I hope your all doing really well? I'm having a major TGIF moment right now and I'm so happy to to have finally sat down for the weekend after a busy and fairly stressful week. I have loads of products I want to review on the blog, so keep an eye out.. especially if you like a good old review haha. A few weeks ago I left my make-up bag at home, but I knew I wasn't going to be returning for three nights to pick it up. I honestly felt incomplete... well only for a few minutes, as I brought myself back to earth and realised it's only make-up haha. Working in the hotel industry means that grooming standards are extremely high, so I headed off to the super market to purchase some beauty bits to keep me going, until I got back home. I ended up purchasing the Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation, as it was a foundation I had seen mentioned on many blogs and YouTube channels.. So I thought it was about time I shared my thoughts and also compared it to some of my most loved foundations. I hope you enjoy this post lovelies and I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below. Don't forget you can also contact me via my social media icons if you would like a quicker response.
Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation 100 Ivory &103 True Ivory
The last Rimmel foundation I tried was the Match Perfection, but it just wasn't my cup of tea. In terms of drugstore foundations I have never really found a foundation that I can genuinely say I love (until now) Don't get me wrong I do like the L'Oreal True Match & Bourjois Healthy Mix foundations, but they have never replaced my beloved Vitalumiere Aqua, NARS Sheer Glow or Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick! The first thing I noticed about the Wake Me Up foundation was the fact it looked quite glittery when I first put it on the back of my hand! Now this foundation may be a bit of a nightmare if your oily, but personally I quite like a glowy foundation... However, I did wonder if this would be a little bit glowy even for me! After a full day at work I was pleasantly surprised to see that my foundation was still in one piece and throughout the day I didn't feel a huge urge to touch up my make-up! I originally purchased this foundation in the shade 103 True Ivory, which turned out to be a little too dark for my winter skin. However, the shade 100 Ivory suits me much better and it's the shade I opt for most days. 

The thing that made me realise I really loved this foundation was the fact that even when I got home I didn't swap it for any of my other favourite foundations... and I have been wearing it daily ever since. I'm really impressed by how it makes my skin look bright and perky.. and I also feel confident that it's going to last me a full working day! However, a little note to self - don't use it with a brightening primer, as by the end of the day you will be a glitter ball. I have been setting this foundation with a semi-matte powder, which keeps it at bay without completely taking away its gorgeous luminosity. Overall, I'm really impressed with this foundation! It has a nice light/medium coverage with a real brightening effect, which lasts all day! However, if your more on the oily side I would probably give this a miss, as it does have shimmer, which could work against a more oily complexion. I also think that the shade selection could be improved, but overall I honestly can't fault this foundation.
I hope you enjoyed this review lovelies and I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments section down below. Have you tried this foundation?

Lot's of Love

    1. Ah no! I have to say it's pretty glowy... and I manage to keep it at bay with a powder, but it does have pretty impressive lasting power xxx

  5. I've been really keen to try this, but knew it wouldn't be suitable for oily skin! Maybe I can try the concealer out instead :)

  9. I'm pretty sure I've tried this, but unfortunately I picked up the wrong shade! I quite liked the formula though. I would definitely feel incomplete if I left my makeup bag at home for 3 days!

  10. I've been curious to this foundation for absolute ages now. The thing that always makes me slightly wary about it is the fact it has glitter in it.. And I have oily skin! I might try out the concealer and see how that works out. If I like it, well, I can get the foundation! x
