This is the most incredibly stuff I have ever put on my skin! I have pretty oily sensitive skin and this makeup keeps me matte all day long! Not only that but I wore this to the gym one day (after wearing it all day at work) and i noticed that it didn't drip or melt or anything! In fact, it kept me face looking wonderful even after a sweaty work out! If you are on the market for a good foundation, I highly recommend this.

I've only had this foundation a few days but I really like it. Rimmel claims that Wake Me Up foundation has a 'light smooth texture for natural looking skin' and can 'eliminate the signs of tiredness', 'illuminates for a healthy glow' and 'increase elasticity of skin', it is also SPF 15.

The foundation comes in a slim glass bottle with a pearlescent orange lid. The foundation has a pump action which means that you can't accidentally squeeze too much out and waste it. I don't like to smother my face in too much foundation so I find that one shot of this foundation is more than enough to cover my face.

I apply this foundation over moisturised skin as I think foundations work better on a base. This foundation is smooth and glides well over skin, it blends easily and provides good coverage and not much is needed to cover my whole face. Bags and blemishes are hidden and my skin tone looks even and clear and my pores are less visible. The foundation contains 'illuminating pearls' and to be honest I was dreading finding glitter. If I rub some of the foundation into the back of my hand and hold it up to the light I can see it shimmering but I can't notice the shimmer on my face and my skin looks natural. My face looks brighter and fresh and does make me skin look a little less tired and more refreshed.

I haven't used this foundation long enough to know if it can help increase my skin's elasticity but I live in hope as it also claims to 'minimise signs of premature aging'. I'm not sure if it lasts the full 10 hours claimed but it seems to look better than my previous foundation at the end of my shift at work, my skin can get greasy over the day but I thought that it remained luminous and healthy looking rather than greasy. I think that this foundation does make my complexion look better and I will definitely continue using it. Having SPF 15 is an added bonus and I would recommend that people try out Rimmel's new Wake Me Up foundation.

This foundation is perfect and really matches my skin tone. Covers up any blemishes really well and is a nice texture meaning it doesnt transfer onto clothes.

Easy to use, brightening, nice texture and soft finish. Can't go wrong with this and the concealer together for a natural look. I really like it.

I have sensitive, acne prone skin and have trouble finding foundations that don't cake or effect my skin. I LOVE this foundation! I use it with the Rimmel stay matte powder. I would deffinately recommend.

I've been looking for an everyday foundation for a long time and I've finally found it. This foundation isn't orange, blends well, gives amazing coverage as well as having really nice packaging which is a bonus. It really does brighten up your face and has a certain sparkle to it that some people are quite negative about but I love it. It's makes you look healthy and radiant which I look for in an everyday foundation.

Just love this make up range!

It arrived packed well, no complaints there. The only reason I rate it so low is because for saying 'Ivory' it is not at all 'Ivory' ... This is a fault I've noticed with a few brands naming their products things that do not match the names. If you're an idiot like me and purchase it thinking "Oh it's the lightest shade so it must be for light-coloured skin", think again. If you have fair skin this is terrible as it stands out as orange/much darker on your skin. I would suggest looking for 'Porcelaine' also from Rimmel but not always available with the Wake Me Up line. Light Porcelaine is super fair and Porcelaine is slightly darker.

Do not buy this if you have fair skin! It may say Ivory but it really isn't :D

Other than that it does feel sort of 'refreshing' when blended into the skin, and I don't really have any other complaints other than what I wrote above. :)

So I got recommended to try this foundation. so I searched the web and it was cheapest here! The coverage is quite light/medium so if you're looking for something that covers up blemishes etc, then this probably isn't for you. However you can build it up, no more than medium coverage though, but i suppose if you wear concealer underneath then the coverage would be better, and a primer too! A lot of people say its very sparkly, its not it has a healthy glimmer to it, but again if your looking for a foundation that is just matte, then this probably isn't for you. But yes, overall I like it, it gives you a natural finish, makes you look much healthier! 4 stars!

Great product! I have dry skin and tend to sweat whilst working it has a hydrated look that stays on! Coverage is good with a natural look but if u just apply the amount u prefere I use about 2 squirts a tad more on a night out. Forever being told I have great skin. The only problem I have with it is that it has more of a peach/pink look and can sometimes look Orange colour against my skin putting it on but once it's on and I've blended with bronzer it's fine just go for the lighter colour if ur unsure between two. I've used this for about 3 years with the odd change but I always come back to this as it's alot cheaper and nicer than most!

This a good foundation I use for going out. It's slightly sparkly which I like. I use with the stay matte pressed powder to finish it off, I struggle with foundation because of my skin type, very combination and oily, I find make up just slides off even when using a primer. This one is ok for a night out and I like how my skin looks flawless when using it, but I tried it on for work. Couple of hours in and I was running to boots for something else lol! I wear the rimmel matte bb cream in the day and considering buying the darker shade for when I go out (I always tan first) was delivered on prime so excellent service
