Beauty News & Reviews
I’ve been trying out a lot of foundations lately, a lot of expensive foundations for that matter, in search of something light and moisturising that gives natural coverage. I bought a gorgeous foundation (which I’ll review shortly) but was disappointed by how many big budget offerings didn’t quite meet my expectations.
So I was very pleasantly surprised when I was given a selection of Rimmel’s new foundations, Wake Me Up, to review. Nicely packaged in durable bottles with a cute orange top and handy pump applicator, these promise to give an anti-fatigue effect and a radiant glow.
I have to say these really impressed me. They give a lovely light coverage that I think is perfect for spring and summer and enhances your skin without being obvious. Some people of course prefer a heavier coverage for their skin but, if like me, you like a foundation that’s more akin to a tinted moisturiser or a BB cream but offers a little more staying power and coverage, this is well worth trying out. It also glides over dry spots and won’t settle into any pesky fine lines. It also boasts an SPF 15 which I love and is a must in the upcoming sunnier months.
I have to say this outperformed a whole host of expensive foundations I tried in Brown Thomas a few weeks back and I’d highly recommend it to anyone looking for this type of foundation. The only downside was that the lightest shade is a touch too dark for my very pale skin but, for the majority, the 6 shades on offer will suit most skin tones.
My verdict? Skip the department stores and head into Boots or your local pharmacy and check this out, you won’t be disappointed!
