Wake Me Up, Before You Go Go | Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation

Don't leave me hanging on like a yo-yo! Now I'm just jamming out to this song in my head and can't remember what I wanted to say about this foundation, oh well *keeps dancing* 

Hello everyone! Happy hump day! Is the week over yet? Not quite, but I'm back today to talk about my favorite foundation of the moment which is Rimmel's Wake Me Up foundation. I have wanted this foundation ever since I heard that it makes your face look more awake (the Wake Me Up part, I presume), is great for dry skin tones and it had itty, bitty, super-duper, micro shimmers to really add some glow to your face. HA, I'm reading the label right now and it says "Anti-fatigue effect + Radiant Glow", so there you go! I was so ecstatic when my good friend Melissa had sent it to me! Having it in my hands felt totally unreal, haha! 

Let me start off with the packaging! It's in a rectangular glass bottle that has some weight to it which makes it feel a lot more expensive than it is, haha. The cap is a bright orange which for some reason makes me so happy when I see it, maybe because I think of orange juice? When you lift the cap off the bottle is the best part. IT COMES WITH A PUMP! *angels descend* I love, absolutely love, when liquid or creamy foundation come with a pump! It means less mess and you're not wasting a ton of product! One pump gives you just the right amount of foundation you'd need to cover your face. Also, I need to mention how much I love the raised glass writing on the side of the bottle that says 'Rimmel London'. Why is it so appealing to me?!

The consistency is a creamy-liquid - it doesn't run. I heard that there were shimmers in it ("light-reflecting" whatchamacallits) and didn't see them when I first looked, which made me upset. I wanted to sparkle like Edward Cullen, dang it, but they are there! If you hold the bottle up at the right angle in the right light you'll see little strips of sheen. I managed to get a picture to show you guys! As you can  see, it's super subtle so don't let that put you off because it doesn't end up translating like 'Edward Cullen' face at all. Even up close I couldn't really see any of the shimmers. I apply this foundation with my Beauty Blender or sometimes with my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. Both work really well to blend the foundation into the skin without leaving it looking dry or cakey.

Rimmel's Wake Me Up has a medium to a build-able full coverage. It evens out my skin tone, gets rid of the redness around my nose, cheeks, and forehead without looking like a cakey mess. It's not heavy and doesn't just sit on top of your skin. Wake Me Up has a dewey finish - your face looks brighter and glows in just the right places. I'd def. recommend this foundation to ladies with drier skin types as it didn't cling to any dry patches of skin, and left me with a well-nourished looking face. I'm already dreading finishing this foundation because it's not available in the States, which is honestly it's only downfall!
I was just informed that it's available on ASOS with free shipping! So I lied, this foundation is perfect, haha! Linked right here - > ASOS
So how much do YOU love this foundation? Haha, just kidding, but what do you think?

  2. Absolutely love it! I was so glad when I received it in a swap as well - why can't Rimmel bring it over to the US?! The coverage is super nice and I love the finish it gives. A favorite for sure!

  3. I didn't know until I read your comments that this wasn't sold in the U.S. :( I hope they bring it over here, soon, I'd love to try it! What is the shade range like? Do they have colors for darker skin tones?

    2. HAHAHAHAHAH I just had to piggy-back on Coco's comment; I WANT IT TOO *throws a hissy fit* I know I can order it from ASOS but I don't want to deal with the color match hassle... getting the right shade of foundation is hard enough in person much less through the internet!!

    3. LOL, Coco, go to ASOS! They have it online there and free shipping! (WOO!)

      & Miss Cassie, it wasn't too hard to guess my shade! We're pretty close in skin color so this one or the Ivory one may be a perfect fit! I totally understand the skepticism though! If anything you can send it back (maybe) it's free shipping both ways!

  6. AH I WANT THIS SO BAD OHMYGOD JESS I ENVY YOU SO MUCH. This foundation looks perfect :( WHY isn't it sold in the US?!

    1. I wish it was available like the other RImmel products! I didn't even realize they had products that they didn't bring over until I realized this one was no where to be found! It's so great, and you can actually get it on ASOS! *free shipping* Woot!

  10. I'm using this one at the moment, too. I do really like it but I'm not blown away by the shimmers. I don't always want a sparkly face! Haha

    1. That is true! I think it works for me now because of the little sun I got but come winter time I think it may go on a bit dark! Maybe you can mix this with another foundation to pull those orange tones out? :) Thanks, Gemma!

  18. I'm a big fan of the Clean Finish Matte, and I used to wear the regular Clean Finish all the time before the new one came out. I have oily skin so the matte fits me better.

    Would love to see a demo of this on you.

    The Wake Me UP concealer just released here in the US, so perhaps the foundation will as well.

    1. Ah yeah, I think if I had oilier skin I'd want a more matte look. I'll be uploading my foundation routine using this on Sunday, so stay tuned! :)

  19. I am so getting this foundation! I've just run out of my Bourjois one, so I need to get a new one anyways. I just don't know which shade... :/

    1. We're pretty close in skin color so maybe this shade will work nice on you? I know there's one shade lighter. I just took a guess when deciding based on other foundations I've used! :)

    2. Yeah, we do seem to have a pretty similar skin color. I'll get this one then. :)

    3. I hope it's the right color! You can yell at me if it's not, but we're super close in skin color so I think you should be okay! :D

  20. This is the next drugstore foundation on my list to try :)
