Review: Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation



My current dupe for my Chanel Vita Lumiere Aqua is the Rimmel Wake Me Up Make Up Foundation which retails for £8.99. Although I love my Chanel, it's a little expensive to wear just for work, or to pop to Tesco so I wanted to find something that does the job, without the price tag. 


Nothing can replace my Vita Lumiere Aqua but this is a close second. It smells great, stays well on the skin and it doesn't feel too heavy. It doesn't blend quite as easily as my Chanel does, and isn't quite as light but it's definitely a nice high street foundation. 


It gives a dewy finish and very occasionally has some flecks of shimmer through it. I rarely notice this but if you hate shimmer then maybe stay away. All thats left to say is, I like the packaging, it reminds me of summer. 


NOTE: Since writing this review I've stopped using this foundation. It turned out to be the cause of horrendous breakouts. This foundation obviously is much cheaper than my regular one and is heavily fragranced. A lot of high street foundations break my skin out, my skin is very sensitive. If you have acne prone or sensitive skin I wouldn't recommend this foundation, however if you don't have a problem with foundations breaking you out then I'd still recommend it. It's not right for me and I won't be repurchasing, but it's still a nice foundation.

It broke me out too! I loved the finish though, was gutted when I broke out xx

Was wondering about trying this in the summer for a light coverage foundation for holidays, but I'm a bit wary of it breaking me out too!

Really want to try this but not going to risk a breakout!! My skin is bad enough!

Oh no what a nightmare. I got this about a month ago and have found it okay. I did have a horrendous breakout but I had quite alot of new things on the go at the time and still didn't manage to figure out what it was, but I don't think it was this!

My skin has been absolutely terrible since around Christmas! I have had consistent acne since then, and never experienced acne ever before in my life. But I have just realized that's the time I purchased my Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation, because I began to notice it was aggravating my skin! I'm so upset because this was the perfect foundation (other than the breaking out of course). I am relieved that I finally found the source of my problem, and seeing that I'm not the only one confirms it for me! If you don't have sensitive or acne-prone skin, lucky you because this is the best foundation!
