Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation: Review + Swatch

My first foundation review! I picked up Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation in Shade 200 Soft Beige the other day from the Discount Drug Store for $19.95. This is a relatively new foundation by Rimmel and it is marketed to have an "Anti-Fatigue Effect + Radiant Glow" with a SPF of 15. Lets see how it went!

Packaging: This foundation comes in a nice glass bottle with a pump. The pump is great as I am prone to pouring foundation everywhere and wasting it! The glass bottle is alright, however I feel it would smash easily if dropped on tiles so be careful.

Texture and Colour: This foundation feels sort of creamy, it's not super runny. I quite like it, it doesn't run everywhere and is really blendable and easy to work with. 

I do find the colours in this range to be quite pink based. This was the most yellow based one in the range and I still think it looks slightly pink on my skin, so it's not a prefect match but it is close. (I have immense difficulty matching my skin tone!)

Coverage: I found this foundation had a light to medium coverage. It is a little buildable but you will not get high or full coverage with this foundation. It has a really nice natural finish and does have a "radiant glow" effect! I feel it really helps brighten up my skin especially in those mornings when I didn't get much sleep and my skill is looking a little blah. 

I have heard some people talk about a shimmer to this foundation and they're right. There is a VERY subtle shimmer to this foundation, which I didn't notice until I was practically pressing my face against the mirror so don't let this put you off.

Long Lasting: I found this foundation lasted a few hours before I had to apply powder to my t-zone. I think if you have oily skin it probably won't last too long. 

Overall: Overall this is a really nice foundation. It feels light on my skin, has good coverage for my skin type and is really easy to put on. It smells nice and isn't overwhelming and has a really nice finish. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a light/medium coverage foundation with a natural finish for normal skin.
