The Best High Street Foundation?

Hello lovely! Today I'd like to talk about my current favourite high street foundation which I truly believe rivals many high end counterparts...

It's Rimmel's Wake Me Up Foundation.

According to the product notes it has a light moisturising texture that applies smoothly and leaves skin feeling soft and comfortable all day. 

Let me cut through the blurb for you and tell you a little more about this foundation...

Shades: This foundation has a 6 shade range. (Kate Moss wears shade 200 Soft Beige and I wear shade 100 True Ivory.)

As you can see from the above graphic, the shade range does leave a lot to be desired, which is a massive shame. 

Coverage: I would say that this is a medium coverage foundation and it's buildable for full coverage. It blends really nicely into the skin and if you get the right match for you, it will melt right into the skin and make your face look virtually flawless.

Other Important Info: The foundation has SPF 15, which is really handy. Also keep your eye out in Boots because this product is regularly on 3 for 2. 

And more excitingly, I have found myself leaving my Chanel Aqua Lumier foundation on the side and reaching for this foundation time and time again. I know, right?!

Price: At £8.99 it's an absolute steal! I'd highly recommend this foundation if you're looking for a new 'holy grail' - forget how affordable this is, it can definitely pack a punch when directly compared to a high end foundation.

Where can I buy it: Boots online or in store. As well as other retailers that sell Rimmel products.

Have you tried this cult foundation from Rimmel?
Always Geek, Forever Chic,
