Rimmel is quite possibly my favourite drugstore brand. Although I don't love everything they have, it's probably the brand I own the most of and I do find myself reaching for Rimmel products more frequently. The Wake Me Up range wasn't always a favourite of mine, owing to the more dewy finish, but my skin has recently become a lot less oily, so I'm enjoying reaching for some new products. Rimmel also recently launched the new Wake Me Up mascara in Australia, so I thought it was high time for a review of the whole range.
1. Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation ($19.95) in 100 Ivory
I did a little review of this foundation as part of my Ace Yo' Base series a little while ago and my opinion hasn't really changed. Even when my skin was oilier, this foundation gave a nice glow without making me too greasy. It's the perfect winter foundation as it contains peptides and a vitamin complex to leave skin looking fresh and radiant. Now that my skin has dried out a little, this has been a regular favourite of mine.
2. Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer ($14.95) in 010 Ivory
Who doesn't love a good concealer? Especially one that hides dark circles and makes you look fresh and flawless. Like the foundation, this contains peptides and a vitamin complex to help hide under-eye bags. It's a little thicker than I like in a concealer and does tend to crease if it isn't set but I love it because it really does mask the dark circles that are the bane of my existence. With this concealer, less is definitely more!
3. Rimmel Wake Me Up Radiance BB Cream ($16.95) in Light
I don't think I'll ever get sick of BB creams, they're perfect for me because I love lighter coverage but still want something that's going to even out my skin tone and hide any redness or blemishes. This is a fairly new addition to the Wake Me Up range but it's a favourite of mine. I do find that it tends to separate through the day if you set with powder so I just leave it to do it's radiant, glowy thing. I also love the shade range. I find a lot of drugstore BB creams come in a range of orange shades but these are more natural, it's refreshing to see some actual skin tone shades!
4. Rimmel Wake Me Up Mascara ($16.95)
This is the latest addition to the Wake Me Up range and has only been out in Australia for a few weeks. It's so new that I couldn't find a link on the Rimmel Australia website! I love everything from the packaging (which is similar to the Rimmel Argan Oil Mascara but in green), to the wand to the fresh cucumber scent. The brush is a little tricky to get used to because it's got an hourglass shape but it's good for getting into the smaller lashes. The formula is clump free and easy to layer and I think that this mascara is an all-round winner. My favourite part though is definitely the cucumber scent, most mascaras smell a lot like burnt rubber so it's a nice touch.
