I have tried A LOT of concealers, and this time I decided to try this. My favourite concealer ever, is Wake me up from the same brand, but this time I wanted to try this one out, instead of repurchasing the Wake Me up.
The match perfection one is actually pretty similar to the Wake Me up, and the price is the same. The only different is the applicator and the match perfection is a bit more illuminating. Let me just say that I don't like the applicator and I wish that it wasn't that illuminating, so I could cover up blemishes with this.
But it's SO good, for under the eyes and hyper pigmentation!
Decent concealer. Not uber long wearing but is easy to blend and build, medium coverage. A little goes a long way so don't squeeze too hard!
Lovely and brightening for under the eyes down the nose and on cheek bones. Stays on well when set. Tube is a bit big for how much product is inside making it very squishy when trying to squeeze the concealer out. Will be buying it again after I've finished it up. Love it, could marry it after the difference it's made to my dark circles.
Really good at covering dark circles and adding bright was under eyes. I do have to set this with a light dusting of powder or it will crease. Packaging could be better as it gets difficult to use when you're at the end of the product.
I have dark hereditary undereye circles, plus crepey undereye lines and occasional dry skin from Retin-A so I'm a challenge for any concealer. I was really impressed with how well Rimmel Match Perfection worked, especially for the price. It holds up against undereye lines for hours, and when it does give out it doesn't make them look dramatically worse. It's easy to blend and it does a good job of covering up the darkness.
The main reason I don't use it regularly is because MAC Pro Longwear concealer was just that little scootch better -- it has a better color match to my face or better light diffusion properties or something so it makes my whole face light up, not just my undereye area. To tell the truth, the MAC is not actually three times better than Rimmel to go with the 3X higher price, I'm just that vain. If I run out of MAC someday when the budget doesn't have room for replacing it, I'll get the Rimmel instead. (Also, the Rimmel does a better job on scars and spots, so I keep it around to use for those.)
My first review! Let me start by saying (as a college student) I don't wear much makeup on a day to day basis (usually just concealer and mascara), so I don't have much to compare this to - but so far I love it. I'd been using Maybelline's Fit Me concealer in Light, but it still felt too orange at times (I could get away with it, but it wasn't really evening me out as much as I liked, plus it's hard to blend), so I went to Walgreens and picked up this, after recalling some makeup guru mentioning it. I went home and washed my face and tried it, and wow! A little goes a long way for me especially under my eyes. I have minor dark circles on a normal day, but when I tried this product I was running on two hours sleep and the circles were bad - but this product covered them flawlessly. It also took care of my usual redness around my eyes and chin, and the finish looks natural. For me, the Fair/Light color essentially matches my skin perfectly; it brightens and evens out, with much better blendability and coverage than the Maybelline Fit Me. So far so good - only time will tell if it becomes my HG, hence the four stars. If you are looking for very heavy coverage, this probably isn't for you, but for me it is just right.
Fab product, I love this. I have tried many other under eye concealers but this beats all of them hands down. It doesn't have as high coverage as other concealers, e.g.: the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer but it is really illuminating and is the only thing that covers my under eye circles. My only gripe is the packaging - I like the fact that it comes in a tube, but I think the brush attachment wastes product and is useless, because at least for me, I prefer to blend it with my fingers. All in all a great product, I'd urge you to try it if you haven't already.
Very good product as far as inexpensive concealers go. I got the Light/Medium and the color was perfect. Did not care for the brush applicator on the end and there wasn't much product in the tube, but I'd still buy this again. Good coverage, looks natural.
The colour comes out orange on my skin sadly ! :(
I really like this as a concealer; I have yet to use it as a highlighter.
I bought this in 245 Light, and it was the perfect shade for me (light/medium skin tone with gold under-tones). The brush was great and soft to apply under my eyes.
My only issue was the packaging. It was hard to get any product out at first.
