After trying a free sample in my glamour magazine of Rimmels new Wake me Up Foundation I have to say it was brilliant. Along side that I also bought Hide the Blemish Concealer and Stay Matte Powder.
Rimmel is one of my favourite 'drug store' brands, its a good price and good quality.
So starting with the foundation. Its a liquid, and quite runny at first. Its gives medium coverage but is definitely buildable. I had a light layer on for the day which gave me a healthy glow and then went for a fuller coverage in the evening.
I used the shade soft beige which, I think, really matched my skin tone well.
Here's a swatch...
And this is it blended in, lovely huh??
Next we have the blemish concealer in shade natural beige, it's shaped like a lipstick, and using Bobbi Browns tip, I bought it in the same (near enough) shade as the foundation and then applied it after the foundation. It's a bit cakey, thick and doesn't blend that well, it did hide the redness of my spots, but I feel it might have highlighted them a bit more and that made me feel quite self conscious. So this one I wouldn't really recommend, not even for under your eyes as it really doesn't blend well.
And my powder, in transparent, does what it says on the tin really. Keeps my face looking matte but still lets the glow of the foundation come through which I liked and keeps my make up in place!!!
Overall I would say I would definitely buy the powder and the foundation again not so much the cover stick!!
The finished look on my face. You can still see my freckles which is good, but everything else looks even and bright. I hope anyway!!
Excuse the hair its scraped back...still need to visit the hairdresser...cannot wait until the 6th march!!!!
