Recently I have been purchasing a lot of foundations trying to find the 'perfect' foundation for me. As I suffer from eczema but also have oily skin as well as the odd dry patch it's tricky for me to find a foundation that can cope with maintaining both areas of my skin. As I have been such a foundation junkie I decided to do a review on one I tried recently called Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation £8.99 Which you can purchase HERE
I purchased mine in 100 ivory and was excited to try it out as I had heard a lot of good reviews on youtube and on the boots website. Below is a swatch of the foundation, it looks too light for my skin in the swatch but actually if anything it is the tiniest bit too orange as I have very pale skin, although I knew this would be the case as Rimmel don't often cater for very dark or light skin tones. Rimmel designed this foundation for a wake me up effect (glowy/ dewy look but also giving a natural anti- fatigue effect) and I 100% agree with this statement, I suffer with very dull looking skin and after applying this I got many compliments and had a very even, glowing complexion which looked very natural, although if you are any paler then me you may not be able to get away with wearing it without looking orange.
This foundation does have a scent (a very nice orange scent) so if you have very sensitive skin it may not be great for you, this foundation lasted 12 hours on my skin but I did have to powder it as it does get oily throughout the day as it contains illuminating particles within the foundation. The packaging is really good the bottle is very unique looking and they pull it all together with a very unique slanted lid which I think looks really quirky and fun also it comes with a pump which is possibly the best pump I have ever used as you can get out as much or little product as needed without wasting any (take note revlon).

I highly recommend this foundation it is great as an everyday, medium/ full coverage foundation which will give you a lovely glow to your skin.
