Continuing with my recent Rimmel obsession, the much-hyped Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer has finally reached Australian shores. It has been available on ASOS for quite some time, however I sometimes have a bit of trouble with even the lightest shades of Rimmel foundations and concealers being far too dark for me, so I wanted to wait and test it out in person.
The closest match for me is the lightest Ivory, which surprisingly (and despite the limited shade selection) is a pretty decent shade for my skin tone.
Being an illuminating concealer, it is perfect for use under the eye, though not so great at covering blemishes. Although, I have also used this to bring down the redness in my cheeks when I want to use a lighter coverage foundation by blending a bit in before applying. In saying that, it does have pretty decent medium coverage and does a really good job of covering dark circles and banishing that 'I literally just got out of bed' look. It goes a long way in helping brightening the under-eye area.
The packaging is practical - small enough to take with you, and features a doe-foot applicator.
This concealer has actually made it into my everyday make-up routine already, replacing my Clinique Airbrush concealer. The Clinique is quite similar, though I tend to favour the higher coverage of the Wake Me Up.
Overall, I think the Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer is an excellent budget-friendly choice if you're looking for an illuminating concealer for the under-eye area. Definitely recommended!
Available from Priceline, and ASOS!
