Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer Review

Sunday, 6 September 2015

So recently I’ve been trying out the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer, I bought this a couple of months ago when I was trying to find my usual concealer the Collection Long Lasting Perfection concealer. Unfortunately for a while I couldn’t find this concealer in fair so I decided to just buy another one and I had heard a lot of good things about the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer so I bought it and after using it a number of times I’ve finally have an opinion on it.

So first of all the product description on the Boots website claims that…
-It’s a full coverage concealer
-it visibly reawakens and illuminates
-Completely conceals spots & blemishes
-And has an anti-fatigue effect

 After using this many times I will say that I find the concealer definitely does reawakens the skin and illuminates the skin under the eyes. I’ve used this on days where I’ve had a bad nights sleep and have been feeling/ looked really tired and I can say it definitely does make you look refreshed and not at all tired, but I do have a slight problem with the concealer. I have quite dark bags under my eyes and compared to my collection concealer this one doesn’t cover the bags up very easily. I find myself having to put layers of the concealer on to cover them up, whilst my collection one covers the bags up with just one layer.

I also find this concealer harder to blend into my skin. But some more positives of this concealer include how long lasting it is and how well it stays on with a little bit of powder on top.  Usually when I’m going out I am out all day and recently it has been very hot outside. This concealer definitely has lasted the entire day even whilst being in quite hot conditions of course I have put some powder on top, which I have found doesn’t actually effect the illuminating effect of the concealer as long as it’s just a slight amount of translucent powder it will still keep the illuminating effect, whilst just slightly matting the concealer.

Overall I do really like this concealer despite the fact that it requires more product being used to cover up my under eye bags, but I do love the effect it has. Unfortunately though this concealer will never be my favourite as long as I have the Collection Long Lasting Perfection Concealer, but it’s definitely a close second.
