I have a new love and it is Rimmel London Wake Me Up Foundation – quite possibly the best drugstore foundation to ever grace my face.  Here’s how our love story began…

The lovely Rimmel London PR sent me two bottles of Rimmel London Wake Me Up Foundation in two different shades – 103 True Ivory and 200 Soft Beige.

My heart went boom boom when I traced my fingers round the sexy sleek bottle with “Rimmel London” embossed on the side.  It may be drugstore but that itself screams luxe in my books!

All the ladies who love pump-dispensing-foundations can rejoice together!!  *fist pump* alert – the pun is very much intended!

Anyway, the true love moment was when I applied Rimmel London Wake Me Up Foundation.  Beautiful.  Magic.  *swoon*  My dull complexion was transformed into a soft, radiant glow.  It truly does make me look more awake!!

It glides and blends beautifully on un-primered skin and irons out my skin imperfections (pores, sun-spots) without highlighting any flakies.  Yet it is not thick and doesn’t clog up my pores.

I am delighted with the shades because on my NC-30 skin, 103 True Ivory is my Winter shade and 200 Soft Beige will be my Summer shade.

With 6 shades to choose from and a price tag under $20 AUD, what are you waiting for?  Get thee to your nearest drugstore or simply, buy online here.

    I fell in love with this foundation the moment I tried it!
    Sufficient coverage for me – light – and brightens up my face – what more can u ask for under $20?

    Your complexion without foundation is already close to perfection. (RHYMES!!! Lol!) The foundation looks a little orange though… or is it just the lighting?

      @Bun Bun Makeup Tips, You are a poet and you didn’t even know it! (that rhymes too LOL) And oh no, my complexion is so bad at the moment 🙁 but that’s why I need this foundation 🙂 I think it’s the lighting and my poor camera technique which is making the foundation look orange…oopsie 😛

    Sounds like a great foundation and the coverage is good too. I hope I can find a shade that matches my skintone as I’d love to try it.

    Sounds like a great product with a great price. But you didnt say much about the coverage, is it sheer or is it full coverage? Im looking for something sheer for the summer 🙁 and Im not a fan of full coverage

      @Helz Nguyen, Oops, I knew I forgot something in my review! It is light to medium coverage and I reckon it’s great for Summer because my skin doesn’t feel clogged up or anything 🙂

    I have not read a single bad review on this!!! I don’t like to have more than one foundation at a time, so when I finish my current Bourjois Healthy Mix, I am running straight for this one, it sounds fantastic!

      @Sue, It’s so good! 🙂 BTW, I read rave reviews about Bourjois Healthy Mix and I tried it the other day and didn’t like it! 🙁

    I just discovered that my loved foundation turns orange in my face at evening…I´m so angry about that. So I was wondering if rimmel wake me up is good for oily skin?

      @javi, Orange?? That’s no good, is it?! Apparently Rimmel Wake Me Up is suitable for all skin types…but maybe try a tester in-store first and see how it goes 😉

    I want to try this foundation. The price is really good for this great product. I also hope it gives radiant glow on my skin.

    I just got a sample of this from Priceline…now I’m even more keen to try it. My fave so far is still Revlon’s Colourstay
