Rimmel Wake me up foundation

I am sure that everyone knows about this foundation as its been quite a popular one in the blogging world! I showed this in my recent haul post and I've been using this for quite a while, not necessarly everyday but on days I want a bit of a glow or some sheen. When this initially came out it didn't really attract me in a way and I just wasn't too fussed. But a while back on Twitter I asked what foundation I could use that's quite brightening and has a bit of a 
sheen/shimmer to it. A lot of you guys suggested that I should try Rimmel's wake me up foundation. So I went out the next day and purchased it in the shade true ivory and lucky for me it was on offer :) 

 My initial thoughts were that it's a very light weight foundation and gives you the perfect amount of coverage and let's your skin breath.  It has some glitter particles in it but not too much where comes the point  you sparkle! This is what gives you the radiance and the glow. 
As you probably know by now that I am extremely picky when it comes to foundations and at first I wasn't too excited but that clearly was not true. Like I said I don't use this on a regular basis but when I do I really do like it. So far its not caused any blemishes etc which is great as a lot of the times liquid foundations cause breakouts on oily/combination skin types. I love the packageing! The orange really pops and looks great on your dresser! Love the fact it has a pump dispenser which makes it a lot easier to get the desired amount. I need about 1 and a half pumps and I am done. It lasted for a good 8 hours on my skin without any touch ups. No cakeyness, smudges or any disappearing! It makes you glow and it appears very natural. I really do like this foundation! 

Hope you liked my review and thankyou for reading!
