Rimmel Wake Me Up | Foundation, Concealer and Shimmer Touches

Rimmel are on the ball at the moment! I mean everything they are coming out with seems to be a hit. The Wake Me Up range is something that is kind of hit and miss. The range offers some shimmer creams, foundation and a concealer.

People went a little crazy over the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation, and with good reason. It's an amazing foundation, that work for most skin types and gives a really nice finish to the skin. I've gone through a couple of bottle, and am currently working my way through a little sample I got. I've heard it's a dupe for the Nars Sheer Glow but I'm not entirely sure about that. I would say go and try it if you haven't. It's the stand out for me in this little range Rimmel offer. It comes in 6 shades, and is only £8.99!
Wake Me Up Concealer

I, personally, also went a little mad over the Wake Me Up concealer. It was one of the first under eye concealers that I found that really worked for me. It brightens under my eyes and it erases those dark circles. I'm a student, I need all the help I can get. You can read my full review here! It comes in 4 shades, and it's only £5.49.

Wake Me Up Highlight
Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touches in Radiant Rose and Shimmering Sands link £4.99
 There are some things that let down the range, and those are the Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch. They come in two shades, one golden toned and one pink toned. The problem that I have with these are that I'm not sure what they actually are. When I brought them, I thought they might be a highlighter but they are just too pigmented to be a highlight. The pink, Radiant Rose, seems like it could be a cream blush but it's got to much glitter in it. It makes you look like you belong in Twilight, and that's not a look I can pull off. The golden one, Shimmering Sands, isn't dark enough to be a bronzer, and it's too glittery to be a blush and too dark for a highlight. I just don't know what to do with these, so they fall in my regret buying list. 

You can pick this range up in most drugstores and online here

  2. Hahah makes you look like something out of twilight, definitely be steering clear of that! I've used the foundation & I really liked it but its not pale enough for everyday use unfortunately :(. I'm a student too & I also need all the help I can get hiding those pesky bags ahah so ill be checking out the concealer next time I'm in boots!xx

    1. I would stay clear! Sparkling doesn't work unless your RPatz haha! The foundation is great! I wish they would bring out the Porcelain shade in this like they did in the Match Perfection line :)

  3. I love the foundation and concealer they are fantastic x
