rimmel vs. chanel

I never usually wear foundation but Elle magazine tend to stick samples in on the odd occasion. Recently I’ve been a bit of a party animal and since I never wear foundation in the day I decided to try the Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation in Soft Beige and Chanel Perfection Lumière in Beige on two of my nights out.

The Rimmel foundation can be seen in the first photo, and it definitely came out on top. It applied so easily (with a foundation brush) and didn’t sit on my skin like normal foundations do and it left me with a gorgeous dewy look. It looked really fresh and natural which is the type of foundation I was looking for.

The Chanel foundation in the second picture definitely disappointed me, considering it was Chanel. It took longer to apply and left that heavy feeling on my skin where you know you’re wearing foundation. I also had to use powder to keep my face matte.

The Rimmel is a new must have in my makeup bag as it was nice and light, and at £8.99 it’s an inevitable choice compared to the £36 Chanel one.

  1. I currently use Chanel but I'm thinking about buying and trying the Rimmel Wake Me Up and I hope it's fabulous because it's so much less expensive. I just wanted to ask about what lipstick and color you have on in the first picture. Its a beautiful color!
