With so, so many foundations on the market, it can be a real gamble picking one out. It’s almost like a miracle when you find one that you really love and it comes in the perfect shade. Two summers ago I was on vacation and spent a few days in Vancouver. It was my first time ever in Canada, so that alone made it pretty exciting. I stopped in a drugstore to see if they had anything different. The first thing that stood out to me was this bright orange cap at the Rimmel stand. Why they don’t sell Rimmel Wake Me Up in the states is beyond me. But it’s my favorite foundation.
The bottle I originally picked up and did a blog post on was in the color 201 Classic Beige. At the time I was much tanner and this color was a perfect match. My winter skin was just too pale for it, so I knew I needed another shade. Luckily I found Rimmel Wake Me Up on ASOS. The day I purchased it, it was on sale PLUS free shipping. I picked up the shade 200 Soft Beige which is just enough lighter for my skin right now.
First things first, the products got a pump and that’s really the greatest thing ever. It makes application so much easier and mess free. It’s the little things that count.
I have done a full blog post on Rimmel Wake Me Up, but I hadn’t really realized how absolutely in love with it I was until more recently. I feel like I always get perfect looking skin with so little effort. It’s got glow and coverage, which is exactly what I look for in a foundation.
I really realized how much I loved this foundation when I was getting ready for a night out. I was being very careful doing my make up to look my best. I suddenly realized how great my skin looked, and it was all thanks to Rimmel Wake Me Up.
I’ll still try other foundations in the future, but I’ll make sure to always keep a bottle of this on hand!
What’s your all time favorite foundation?
