I have long been a fan of Rimmel’s Recover foundation. So when I heard that there was a new offering in the range I thought I would check it out. The Wake Me Up Foundation had a lot to live up to if it was going to beat my cult classic.
I am delighted to report that it knocked its socks off! I couldn’t believe the great price at €6.95 in my local pharmacy! Such good value, but I think that this might have been an introductory price. It is a beautiful lightweight foundation with buildable coverage and where the Recover foundation had quite large reflective particles, Wake me Up is much more of a natural glow. This is the perfect foundation for this time of year as our skin can look a little fatigued after the long winter.
I would normally be Ivory, but I thought that it looked quite pink on me, so I opted for the True Ivory which is more of a neutral tone. It matches my face perfectly, but because my neck is a little paler, I do have to blend between the two with a bit of bronzer.
