review: rimmel wake me up concealer


I am always, always on the hunt for the perfect concealer. There are some that I have loved more than others (Urban Decay's 24/7 concealer still has my vote for the best out there!). Recently, I decided to pick up the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer. Despite the fact that I wasn't very keen on the Wake Me Up Foundation, I simply couldn't resist trying out Rimmel's first full coverage concealer.

So, how is it?

Surprisingly, it's quite a good concealer. I was impressed. It is definitely the best Rimmel concealer in terms of coverage. The consistency isn't runny, but it's not clumpy and thick either. It covers under eye circles well and lasts throughout the day without creasing - always a plus! It doesn't brighten the under eye area at all and I didn't feel that it made me look refreshed or awake, but it is quite good at covering up blemishes and dark under eye circles.

My only real complaint is the shade selection. I adore Rimmel products, but there simply isn't enough colour selection! This concealer is a touch dark for me, even in the lightest shade, which is a shame. But...I should be used to this by now! Being super pale can make buying foundation and concealer a little trickier.

Overall, I was happy with this concealer. It does a good job and you can't beat the price! It is great for every day use. I'd give it a 3.5/5

Have you tried Rimmel's Wake Me Up Concealer? What did you think of it?

  6. I know what you mean about colour selection, in summer I have to resort to buying two different shades and mixing them because I can never match my skintone.

  11. I have been wanting to buy this as it looks good and I need a concealer but I agree with you because there are not many shades. Its so annoying because I have quite light skin so its always hard. Great review, I will probably give it a go now. Thanks for sharing xx
