I'm a foundation freak, you may already be aware of this if you have read this blog for any length of time, but when I initially saw this a while back in Superdrug I wasn't falling for it as I normally would, no, it appeared that I had malfunctioned or something that day and I didn't even pick it up in fact I had a little chuckle at it rolled my eyes and walked right past without even having a nosey! I think it was the name of it which on any other day would suck me right in but that day it didn't, it irritated me instead I wasn't prepared to be disappointed by another bold claiming high street foundation and remember thinking how very sensible I was and giving myself a little pat on the back for turning a corner.
But then I stumbled across a few reviews on it and became ever so slightly curious, then I noticed it appearing in monthly favourite video's on You Tube, curiosity got the better of me and BAM I was all over it like a tramp on chips, and I'm so pleased I gave in...
...never in my life has a high street brand foundation excited me as much as this one does, there are a couple that have come close (Bourjois healthy mix and healthy mix serum and more recently L'Oreal Lumi Magique) but even then I have always found that one teeny tiny reason not to truly love them... ie it breaks me out a'la healthy mix or it isn't long wearing enough in the case of Lumi Magique and with them being from the high street that's fine I had pretty much made peace with the fact that there would never be the perfect high street foundation for me when Rimmel go and come out with this bad boy! In fact, in the past couple of weeks of using this every day I am 99% sure that I shall be declaring it holy grail!
I loves it!!

I get the song 'Don't wake me up' stuck in my head for hours every time I get it out of my Make-up bag!
