Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation

As days get cooler my skin is getting lighter. So today I went to get myself a lighter foundation to mix with my existing Chanel Pro-Lumiere that is way too dark for me now.
I didn't want to spend a lot of money because I will be primarily mixing it with other foundations. I decided to get new Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation in lightest shade 100 Ivory. It was just under $14 at Big W.
First of all I liked the packaging - nice glass bottle with pump
I love how shimmery orange plastic is
The foundation itself is very good. It has thin formula, sheer and luminous finish and very pleasant scent. I can see some shimmer once it settles into my skin but it is only visible if you look closely under direct light.
It blended very well and evened out skin tone nicely. The match seems to be fairly close to my skin. I normally use NC25 which is meduim-fair. I imagine that very fair girls will find it hard to get a good match. I think Rimmel needs to start introducing more shades into their current range.

I checked reviews on makeupalley and this foundation scored 4.3 which is very very good! I must say I am impressed too!

    1. MUA is great, I always check it before buying new products. Rimmel and Prestige are my favorite lower end brands, they've been consistenly good with their new products.
