Autumn has got the best of me and I am feeling a little worse for wear; ok if you follow me on Twitter you will see I have barely made it out of bed this week! Although I haven't been wearing makeup at all, on the occasions when I have managed to make it out of the house, I've been reaching for the Rimmel Wake me up foundation and concealer. This has been a favourite of mine for a while now, I also used to swear by it back in my teenage years when it had different packaging and I didn't spend silly amounts on cosmetics. Anyway that all being said, now seemed like the perfect time to review it.
You only need the tiniest amount of product to achieve a really glowy and natural looking finish. I'd say it is a buildable foundation as I have found with this blooming' cold that I've been applying a little more then usual. I love the concealer too and probably rate it higher then the very popular Collection Lasting Perfection concealer and it is still within the same price range- so that's great.
In the above picture this is all I have on makeup wise (and some mascara) and whilst it isn't the best picture, considering how groggy I've been feeling- I think it has done a pretty good job in making me look half human again- I did apply a tonne of blusher on afterwards too in order to try and put some colour back into my cheeks!
These are such affordable products and are of such a high quality, it makes me wonder why I do often fork out so much on high-end make up brands after all. Send me a tweet or leave me a comment if you have tried this too :)
