I found a small sachet of Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation in March's Elle Magazine and thought I'd give it a try. Liquid Foundations really aren't my thing as in the past I found them difficult to apply, orangey and would make my dry skin look even worse. However, as it was a freebie I was willing to give it a go.
The shade was Soft Beige and on first impressions it was a bit dark for me. However, it blended really well and no streaking!!! The coverage is fantastic - I've been really struggling with this with my Bare Minerals at the moment. I think where my skin is lighter from the lack of sun every blemish is showing and I need that extra bit of coverage.
The finish definitely wakes your skin up. It gives a glow without making you look greasy or shiny. I haven't tried this on a work day yet but so far the coverage seems to be longlasting.
If I had to find a downside I would say this could possibly be ageing on more mature skin. The heavy coverage seems to emphasise fine lines but not being a regular user of liquid foundations this could be the case with others.
At the moment its on offer in Boots for £5.99 so I am very tempted to purchase a bottle for those days when I want a bit more coverage.
Has anyone else tried this yet? What are your thoughts?
