Rimmel Wake Me Up Review

Although Summer has officially left us in the UK, we don’t think that should stop us from sporting the summer glow. And we’re pretty sure you would rather keep the glow too, right?

Hence, two great products for this. The Wake Me Up foundation and concealer. The concealer is one we’ve been using for quite a while now, the texture is lovely, creamy with prominent flecks of glitter running through it. We wouldn’t recommend this concealer for a no makeup look as the glitter does add quite a bit of sparkle, but not in a bad way. It is great for brightening up underneath the eyes as the texture is very creamy but it is a very love/hate product as S loves it and Curls does prefer the foundation

We finally got round to purchasing this and now officially own every Rimmel foundation… is that bad? Curls was worried that this would be similar to it’s concealer counterpart and look too glittery on the skin but after using it, we can say it isn’t like that. It has a slightly runny formulation and is quite dewy so better for dry skin types. It does add radiance but not any glitter or sparkle. It isn’t good if your are trying to cover up acne as it does tend to highight imperfections, but if you’re looking for a lighweight foundation for a nice glow the Wake Me Up is a great option. It has a medium coverage and wears quite well on the skin. If you do decide to try out any one of the two we definitely recommend the foundation over the concealer.

Which do you prefer if you’ve tried it or do you have any other favorites to achieve the summer glow in the gloomy months?

Love Curls & S x

  1. Well, it’s actually almost summer here in Australia and I can say that the concealer is great for it! It’s light without being watery, and like you said it’s great for brightening under the eyes! I haven’t tried the foundation yet, but I think I might just have to go out and get it know because of your post! Haha xox

  2. I recently bought the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation and I love it!
    It gives my skin a lovely dewy glow and blends so easily.
