Beauty: Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer

A week or so ago I had a bit of an epiphany with my blog. I had previously had a few weeks away from the internet & in this time I came up a little blog evaluation because I wasn't totally happy with my posts, and felt I was writing about anything and everything. I've had time to think & have basically gone back to how I started this blog, I've narrowed posts down to mostly fashion with a few beauty notes added in for good measure. I'm very fashion orientated & love picking up a good bargain but my interest in cosmetics seems to be growing & growing - And they show no sign of stopping.  

My skins normally pretty good but I've been struggling recently with dark circles under my eyes... Maybe it's a sign of getting older, who knows? I've been using the Garnier BB Eye Roll On Cream but feel like I could just do with that little bit extra coverage, especially now that winter chill is just round the corner. This leads me on to this little beauty... Rimmels' Wake Me Up Concealer.




I didn't actually intend on picking this up when I was out shopping, I'd actually gone out to Boots to buy some Sensodyne - It's not just for old grannys you know! Ha. It works absolute wonders for my knashers! Anywhoo (off on a tangent there Claire) I'd always known about Rimmels Wake Me Up range and always liked the look of it, In fairness I don't know why it took me so long to purchase something, but when I saw this on my walk back up to the till I knew I had to give it a go. 

I opted for 'Ivory' which is the lightest colour in the range, they also have one named 'True Ivory' which is similar & i was toying between the two but the latter had more of a pinky tone which I wasn't totally 100% about. I'm glad I chose 'Ivory' though as it seems to be a perfect match for my skin tone, it even illuminates where I'm putting it, which is fab. It's quite a thick formula which can sometimes be quite off putting but for what I'm needing, I think it's perfect! It covers blemishes perfectly and when put under the eyes gives a much more awake, matte look - I've been transformed from zombie princess to belle of the ball! I've used this product both with & without my Garnier BB Eye Roll On Cream & have to say it works effortlessly either way.I'd probably use both for nights out but am solely using the concealer for everyday use, and it lasts all day too, which is an absolute triumph for me! I have quite oily under eyes and any make up around this area seems to fall off... Apart from this! Hallelujah! Thank you Rimmel!

Thanks for taking a look. Lots of love.

  2. I'm getting dark circles a lot lately - I think I need some early nights!
    I hadn't thought of trying this so I'll definitely be taking a closer look at it when I'm next in Boots!

  4. I love this concealer, but I actually find that the Estee Lauder Double wear is unbeaten when it comes to hiding my dark circles albeit A LOT pricier :( xxxx

    1. Ahh I've not tried the Estee Lauder. I've only heard good things though! I'm just not sure wether the hefty price tag can win me over :-) Maybe one for the Christmas list! X
