Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer - The Dark Circle Terminator

Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer

In the beauty world, products get hyped up. In this case, that's for a reason! Ladies and gentlemen, presenting  Rimmel's Wake Me Up concealer in the shade Ivory - a product I would repurchase again and again.

I've inherited dark undereye circles (thanks, mom and dad) and whenever I'm feeling exhausted, these circles get sooo annoying and I look like I've been beaten up. So, Rimmel Wake Me Up to the rescue!

Price & packaging: Amazingly affordable, at £5.49 (and usually on an offer at Boots or any other drugstore). Now that's what I call a bargain! The packaging is extremely appealing to me, maybe because I like orange, maybe because I like silvery shimmer, or for some other unknown reason. It caught my eye right away,
Coverage & how long it lasts: I can say it's the perfect amount of coverage for my undereye area - not too thick or caky, it's the perfect consistency, and also has tiny specs of shimmer, so it brightens up the area immensely. If you have horrid dark circles like me, this will definitely do the job, as it brightens, conceals and really gives you that "I'm so fresh and awake" look. It lasts reasonably long, but you can easily reapply it if you're not happy with how it looks at the end of the day.

Overall verdict: Yes, yes aaaand yes. It's got it all covered (literally and figuratively) - it's good for blemishes, under the eyes, brightens up and that whole shebang. And the price is the cherry on top. The perfect concealer, in my view. Can't wait to finish up this bottle so that I can get another one, just for the rush.

Have you tried it? Are you totally in love with it?

    1. I find that it does a great job for me, maybe you should try a heavier duty corrector like the Bobbi Brown one ?

  4. I really liked this concealer but even the lightest shade is too dark for my pale skin :( x

    1. Oh, this is such a pity, I'm somewhere in the middle - between beige and ivory, but beige is too orange. They should sort themselves out.. the color range is a bit poor :/

  5. I also suffer from dark circles under my eyes so I would definitely try this. Rimmel don't really do shades pale enough for my skin so I'd have to be careful I think!

    1. Well, Ivory (my shade) I think would work on pale skin, I have pinkish undertones, that's why I got that and not Beige, otherwise it's a bit light for me :)

  6. Hello beautiful!

    I'm new to your blog and I love it! It's so cute and adorable. I've never tried the Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer before and now I'm gonna go out and buy it. I don't have dark under eye circles but I think this product would do the trick to make me look wide awake and more refresh. I really want to try the Wake Me Up foundation so I might have to go snatch that up too. Anyways, I love your blog so much, I nominated you for the Liebster Award!!! Yay. Check out all the info...

    + peace, vibe, soul

  8. I have really bad circles under my eyes, in part due to not eight hours sleep and not enough water. This is a reasonably priced product that I will have to give a go and see if it can work its magic
