If you didn’t know, I started a new job about 7 months ago… a FULL on job. It’s fast paced with long hours and sometimes I find myself up at the crack of dawn and need to make myself presentable for the 10-12 hours ahead, without the aid of my beloved 8-hours beauty sleep.
Thank heavens for the new Wake Me Up Foundation from Rimmel London, a liquid foundation that instantly re-awakens skin with a healthy, radiant looking glow,whilst also helping to minimise signs of premature ageing. No matter how little hours sleep I had last night, this anti-fatigue foundation immediately helps to eliminate visible signs of tiredness. I should know… it’s been my saviour many a time.
The other reason I love this foundation is because it’s a multi-tasking beauty product, as the foundation is also imparted with illuminating particles. When I only have 15 mins to get my face on in the morning, this foundation is all I need to look “alive” with its radiance pearls to help illuminate skin with a gorgeous, healthy-looking glow. And not an oil slick kind of glow… no no no. It’s a natural ‘I look this good when I wake up’ kind of glow. I sometimes I even wear this foundation without powder over the top to take advantage of the dewy glow (SHOCK HORROR!), and I’ve never looked in the mirror and thought, ewwww look at that oily t-zone.
The foundation’s light, smooth texture glides on easily to give a 100% pore-less coverage with an even, flawless, natural-looking finish, not mask-like. Effortlessly easy to blend and immediately moisturises so skin feels hydrated all day, Wake Me Up also feels so lightweight and comfortable that I don’t even notice I’m wearing it.
But wait! There’s more… the high-tech formulation features peptides, which helps increase skin elasticity, so it can recover and bounce back more quickly. As a result, my skin looks more radiant and fresh. Finally (and most importantly), Wake Me Up Foundation is the first Rimmel foundation to contain an SPF 15 to help protect skin from the sun’s damaging rays. BIG TICK!
There are 5 shades in the range, and I found that I matched well to 103 True Ivory AND 303 True Nude, which is a little bit darker but would be a summer colour for me. The glass bottle is a little bit on the risky side (as in slip and smash risk :P), but it gives it a luxurious feel, and with the added advantage of a pump top (my fave) I am very very impressed with the overall packaging and performance of this product.
