Rimmel London Wake Me Up Foundation

Look at those moves, go George, go! Wait is he lip singing?

I’m gonna tell you my theory.

I think, gulp, that Wham was referencing masturbation in this song.

But its a damn catchy little ditty isn’t it?

Speaking of waking me up before you go go how about a little Wake Me Up Foundation from Rimmel (it also gets us off the uncomfortable topic of Wham and masturbation…although you have to admit, funny yes?).

Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation is a brand new foundation launched recently in the UK (I expect to see it this in the US in the Summer) that features a creamy formula and SPF 15. Supposedly it has an anti-fatigue effect with pearlescent properties illuminating the complexion while concealing imperfections and masking under eye shadows.

Whoa…lots going on there.

I haven’t technically met a Rimmel Foundation I really liked yet but sign me up for Wake Me Up Foundation my dull skin can use all the waking up it can get before I go go…I mean literally go…like out the door…no not that kind of go go…get your mind out of the gutter, not cool!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I’m really excited to try this product out, actually! I’m having a love affair with Rimmel lately, what can I say?
    Have you tried Rimmel’s Scandal Eyes mascara, Muse? I’m in L-O-V-E with it! Out of all the mascaras I’ve tried over the years, it’s now earned a spot in my holy grail of makeup, ha ha.

    • the Muse

  • Maria

    You know I was so young when I first heard this song that I didn’t really notice that…but now that you mention it, it makes perfect sense! ^_^ Ahhh….the innocence of youth….I lost that right about the time I started questioning why Show White would be living alone with 7 men. 0_0

  • Swimsalot

    “going solo”. “hit that high”. You may well b right muse. That mind of yours . 😉

    • Ruth

      I thought that it was “going so low” not “going solo”, but that makes so much more sense. That naughty boy!

  • Cynthia

    please do not tell me “pearlescent” properties is code for lots of shimmery ass glitter ala pixi tinted moisturizer.

  • Miss D

    • the Muse

    • the Muse

      not sure bianca it’s sold in the UK only and I’m in the US hun so haven’t picked this yo yet. I sent over a subscription not sure if you got it let me know?

  • JennieLovesJLS

    I Have This Living In The UK Means We Usually Get To Try Em First, Even Though I Have Gone Through 2 Bottles Of This I Still Can’t Decide wheather I like it or not;( Don’t get me wrong it’s nice enought BUT I’m 16 Nearly At The End Of High School And Starting Collage In September, And I Need A Long Lasting Foundation, This Doesn’t Lat Longer Than 3 Hours On Me And I Have Dry Skin So If You Have Oily Skin Avoid This Like The Plague Honestly You Will Be Re-doing Your foundation every 5 minutes (My mate found that out;s) But I Like The Effect Of It It Has Medium To Full Coverage Which Does Go Very Streaky Unless You Use A Brush So If Your Really nterested I Suggest Trying It But This Has Notthing On Bourjois Healthy Mix (Sorry To All You US Girls I Know You Don’t Have BourjoisAnymore Snce They Pulled Out For Some Unknown Reason But I LOVE That Foubndation And Their Blushers)

  • Rebecca
