Rimmel // Match Perfection Concealer

Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer - $4.97- $5.99

Before this year it never really crossed my mind that not all concealers should be used under the eye. I have used the same cream concealer for the last four years (a trio by Kirkland Borghese) and never stopped to think whether or not it was the best concealer out there. Although my beloved trio hides redness and covers blemishes well, I decided it was time I explored other options to mask the darkness under my eyes. The Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer claims to be a 'two in one' highlighter and concealer that will adapt to your skin tone. Due to the 'highlighting' aspect of the product, I would suggest that you only use it under the eyes because it will make blemishes more noticeable instead of hidden. This concealer is available in 5 different shades and the one I have is  the second lightest shade called 'Fair Light'. I did struggle a bit trying to determine which color would suit me but this does truly seem to adapt to my skin tone. I find the concealer is a tad drying and that it does not stay on for too long if it is not set with powder. I personally lightly pat the product in with my ring finger in place of blending it in with a brush. Overall, it is a fairly decent concealer for the price and I love the brush tip applicator but I think I will try something else when I'm through with this tube. What do you think of this concealer?


  1. This one doesn't sound all that fantastic going off what you've said! Maybe try their 'wake me up' concealer for under the eyes, I've heard good things about that if you fancy a change! :) X

    1. I was trying to find the 'Wake Me Up' concealer when I was buying this actually because I had heard that it's amazing but of course my Walmart didn't have them :/


  2. Benefit's Erase Paste is a pretty good concealer for under the eyes because the peachy tone gets rid of any purple, and I've heard good things about the Maybelline Lumi Touch highlighting one too! I've never tried this one though.
