Makeup Monday – Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer Review

Hey guys! So my absolute favourite thing to do after buying something new is to test it out. It really doesn’t matter what it is but that’s always what I do! So I got this product just over two weeks ago and during the course of this half a month I’ve been testing it out almost everyday and now I think I’m finally sure on what my opinion is.

The cost varies in stores but the average price is around £5.49. You can buy it on the following websites/stores:

Rimmel – £5.49

Superdrug – £5.49 

Boots – £5.49

The concealer comes in a clear lipgloss-like tube with a dome applicator, which I particularly like because it’s easy to control the amount of product that you use. Over applying concealer is one of the biggest makeup mistakes that I was certainly guilty of in the past. The colour scheme is the same as the Rimmel ‘Wake Me Up Foundation’.

The product is available in four different shades to match different skin tones. I personally use the lightest shade ivory but the other 3 shades in the line include true ivory, classic beige and soft beige. Ivory is a perfect match for my naturally pale skin tone.

I have to honestly admit that when I first got this concealer I wasn’t too impressed. I felt that whenever I tried to smooth in the concealer it would just kind of rub off. I later on found out that this only happened when I rubbed it in with my finger. I then tried using a brush but finally found that using a wet beauty blender worked the best. I also found that it worked better on under eye circles than spots but it does still work quite well which is good for me as I’m rather prone to spots.

Overall I’m impressed with this product and will happily repurchase it. The concealer is creamy but not thick. If you’ve ever tried the ‘Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection concealer’ it’s a little like that but thinner. Never the less it does its job well. Also let me know in the comments below if you’ve tried this concealer and if you like it or not. Also let me know what other products you’d like me to review.

Empties – September 2015

Hey guys! So I’ve been collecting these empties for about the past three months. I’ve been wanting to do monthly empties but I’m not yet sure so comment down below which you guys would prefer – monthly or every couple of months? Anyway here’s the products I’ve used up recently.

Hair:

Alberto Balsam Raspberry Shampoo and Conditioner

I love this stuff! I’ve repurchased these products so many times and they just make my hair so soft, glossy and smooth! It makes my hair feel amazing and look even more incredible!

Linola Anti Dandruff Shampoo

First off, I DO NOT have dandruff! But I like to use anti dandruff shampoos anyway because they’re especially god at keeping your scalp healthy. This means that your hair will also grow faster and healthier which is important to me!

Body:

Astonish Coconut Hand wash

Nothing too special, it’s just a hand wash but I thought I would include it. It smells really good though!

Balea Body Lotion

Again nothing special but wanted to include. Its very hydrating and makes skin feel super soft.

Lips:

Burt’s Bees Revitalising Lip Balm

I LOVE this lip balm and I am definitely repurchasing! It smells like chocolate and blueberry and it just really deeply moisturises your lips from the second you put it on!

Skin Care:

Biore Pore Strips

Not gonna lie, I hated this! They did not work for me at all even though I was following all the instructions. I don’t know what I did wrong but comment down below some other nose strips I could try!

Body Shop Tea Tree Night Lotion

I’m still slightly on the fence with this. It peels off if you use it as your main moisturiser so I mixed it in with my regular night cream where it did not crease or peel off. That however I feel like maybe makes it less effective? Not so sure if I love this.

Deep Action Blackhead Scrub

This is a great scrub and I will definitely will repurchase but it does not work after 1 day like it says on the packaging. Also make sure NOT to use it everyday because it will dry out your skin. Use it at max 3 times a week!

Featured image

Clearasil Rapid Action Toner

Loved this! It was amazing at cleansing my skin but it does tingle/burn a little when you first use it or if your skin is very dirty! Definitely recommend though!

Masks:

Superdrug Yoghurt Smoothie Mask

This was great at moisturising my skin and also did really well at deeply nourish it as well!

Featured image

Superdrug Superfruit Clay Mask

This was alright. It made my skin very soft but didn’t do what it claimed it would.

Featured image

Superdrug White Chocolate Mousse Mask

I hated this! It burned really badly and it didn’t do anything suffice for my skin at all! Do not recommend!

Featured image

Cucumber Cooling Clay Mask

This was the best of the 4 masks! It deeply cleansed, moisturised, reduced redness and soothed my skin!
