Okay, so we have all heard about Rimmel London's Wake Me Up Foundation that everyone in the UK is raving about! Well, I decided that I was tired of checking websites to find out when this product was going to launch in the US so I sent an email to Rimmel inquiring when it would become available. This, unfortunately, was their reply:

Thank you for asking about Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation. We're sorry to disappoint you, but this product is not available for sale in the United States. Unfortunately there are no current plans to launch this product and there are no retailers that will deliver product into the U.S. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. 

The products we did launch from our Wake Me Up collection are Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer and Shimmer Balm, which you can locate at authorized retailers that include most major CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens, Duane Reade, Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Sears, ULTA and Target stores.

WOW. Talk about disappointing. I do not understand why the UK and Canada have received this product and they don't even know if we will ever get it. I guess at least we will be able to purchase the concealer and shimmer balm. Just thought I should share this with the beauty community so that no one gets their hopes up about this foundation coming to the US anytime soon. 

Hope this helps those of you who had questions about it:)

 So if you guys follow me on Instagram you saw ->
this picture which looks a bit more glammed up than the tutorial! I just wanted to add my own Melby flare to the look so if you want to achieve this look, do everything from the video tutorial the same except:
1. Double Up the Lashes! I used MAC #4 and #32
2. Change the Lipstick to something a bit more vibrant, I used this peachy nude called Crush by Rimmel London.
3. ROCK IT! haha but honestly those are the only things that I changed:)

You can easily personalize the looks that I create or just looks that you see in magazines, movies, or tv shows! Here you can see how tiny changes can really change the overall look:)
