I mentioned the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer in Medium in my haul and teased that I really loved it. Today is the day we get into why. I’ve wanted to try this product for so long, but it didn’t become available in the States until a few years after it’s UK release. As soon as I found the display, I grabbed the darkest shade and hoped for the best.
Upon swatching, this concealer was one of the most orange products I had ever used. It freaked me out quite a bit. Despite the strange color, I decided I’d work with it anyways. Somehow, it blended into pure magic.
When it’s finally blended out, it looks glowy and natural. The color is a bit yellow when it’s all buffed in, but I find this yellowness disappears once it’s set with powder. The concealer does add a little something to the eye area that brightens up any tinge of darkness. The thin texture blends seamlessly and never creases on my skin. I don’t usually use this on my blemishes, but I occasionally add some in places I would normally highlight and it works a charm.
An important part of this whole shenanigan is that I have extremely oily skin. I didn’t even think this would work. I had this idea that it would break apart and separate on my oily areas, but I was so wrong. This stays glowy and natural all day long. I like to use this on light makeup days and I’ve even been using it as my only base on good skin days.
I hope you all found this review helpful! I’ll be uploading a GRWM type video using this concealer in the next week or so, so you can see it in action.
We shall talk soon!
