Review: Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer

It’s review time again!

Today I will be reviewing the Rimmel London Wake Me Up concealer.


I got into this concealer for two main reasons:

1. My Collection concealer ran out (noooooo!) and I’m in Australia for another month before I go home to the UK

2. The pharmacy down the road from me has 50% off Rimmel products at the moment.

Here’s a bit more about what I thought about it.

Limited shades

Often concealers don’t come in a wide range of shades. This one comes in 4: Ivory, True Ivory, Classic Beige and Soft Beige. I tried Ivory, and found it matched my skintone okay on some days, and not on others. Ivory can still look orangey on my (very) pale skin

Great lightweight coverage

I would say that this concealer gives good light to medium coverage. This means that it blends well into your foundation and is very easy to work with so long as you’re not tackling any major breakouts.

Wakes you up!

You can’t knock this foundation, it does what it promises. I found it particularly good when I used it under my eyes and it gives you a more awake look on an early start. I wish it came in a lighter shade so I could use it on its own.

Overall: 3.5/5
Repurchase?: Probably not, I’ll go back to the Collection 2000 concealer when I’m in the UK and I’ll use YSL’s Touche Eclat for under my eyes, but it will do for now.
Shade Used: Ivory
Price Range: £5.49 (Boots) AU$14.95 (Priceline) US$4.47 (Walmart)

Thanks once again for reading guys. Have a great week!
