This is my second day using Rimmel's new Wake Me Up Foundation, after being asked on YouTube to check it out. It appallingly has only 4 shades to choose from in my Priceline, but miraculously, True Ivory is a pretty good match for me. It's definitely a dewy, glowier foundation that would lend itself well to dry / combo skin but mine tends to have a bit too much greasiness in spots throughout the day. I'm trying to decide if I like it or not since I'm so used to matte after all these years (yet really enjoy Sheer Glow from NARS), and I certainly don't want to look dead around the temples (if you watch my YouTube vids, you'll know what I'm taking about...). Under some lights it looks absolutely fantastic, then under other lights I realize it's not doing my pores any favours, I'm getting an oily breakthrough and it's rubbing off quite easily around the edges of my face. Will play with primers and powders a bit more before I make my mind up, so stay tuned!
Loved the Naked 2 palette today. My goodness I have a thing for Verve! It is such a spectacular shade. The brush I'm not a huge fan of. The flat shader side is great- perfect size for me for packing colour on the lid, but the blending side is such a let down. It's so stiff that it moves your lid around in a most uncomfortable fashion making it very difficult to blend much at all. I'm currently enjoying my Rae Morris brushes much better! Look out for an upcoming review hopefully within the next month.
Wherever you are, I hope you're gearing up for a lovely weekend. Today I'm so thankful Aussies have the 4 day Easter weekend tradition. I missed that so very much when living in the US- to work Good Friday made for a Not-So-Good Friday! It was just all wrong, after growing up in Oz, religion aside.
Have a good one,
