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 ! :(
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
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.

My former HG concealer - but I still love it! I gave this 4 lippies because compared to the Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer, the coverage was a little less than I liked. Although for the 6/7 months I used it, it was perfect. Yellow toned and balanced out any undereye darkness and elsewhere on my face. Overall a really nice product for those who dont require THAT much coverage, and something to brighten up the face (which it really does deliver in that aspect) This also photographs beautifully for those who want to know :)

I have dark/blueish under eye circles, and this really brightens my eye area!
I bought the shade 010 Ivory, and it is a tiny bit too light, but that's just perfect to highlight and brighten under eye area.
It's creamy and rather long wearing and it doesn't crease on me. I usually apply one layer and let it dry, and apply another layer, and that is enough coverage for me!
The only con is the tube packaging - I've had this for maybe 1 and a half month, and I have trouble squeezing the concealer out of there, I don't know if there is anymore. In my opinion you get far too little product for the price (in my country it costs what corresponds of 12,19 US dollars!)
But I will definitely repurchase, I LOVE this concealer!

I picked up this item when walgreens had rimmel for 50% off and with my family discount it came out to less than $3! I should of got more!! well at first I got the light medium but it turned out to dark for me (nc32) so i returned it for the light, and its a perfect match! I was in love with the milani hd concealer but this one kicks its butt! I like how it does not settle on my fine lines and it does not cake up! It leaves my under eye area smooth, it highlights just enough. I also apply it on my eyelid and it looks nice. I just wished it has a tube form and not with brush.

I've been using this concealer for ever ! I love it. It looks like skin basicly. It covers redness well and lightens up the eye area. You can use it to high light your cheek bones to. I hate the packaging though but for 5 bucks I can over look it. I can honestly say I've always been satisfied with rimmels products :)

I'm mixed on this product because I had been using Amazing Concealer and it worked very well (but too expensive). The reviews caused me to want to give Rimmel a try. I'd give it 3.5 if I could because if you have dark circles, I don't know that this will do the job. It works ok for me but I would still like to find something more pigmented. The price is reasonable but the applicator is a bit odd.

I have dark purple undereye circles and this works wonders over a corrector. The fair/light color is perfect for my skin tone. Supposedly, it adjusts to your skin color. I'm very surprised that it doesn't crease for being so cheap. I put a few dots under my eye and blend with my finger. I'm worried that the application is a little unsanitary. I will not use this product for pimples because I'm afraid of it making them worse. I use this only for undereye circles and under my brow bone as a highlighter.

This is the best low end concealer I have tried. I usually go crying back to the nearest BB counter after being horrified at a poor drugstore experiment for foundations, concealers, and correctors but not so in this case. Not for this concealer. It covers minor red and darker dings nicely, I also like it as a matte cheekbone and above brow highlighter. And of course under eye on top of my salmon corrector and it is perfect. I take off one rating point only for the horribly unsanitary brush applicator though. Rimmel, we love you but a squeezie tube is all you need on this one!
Age: 30-35 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette, Straight, Medium Eyes: Blue
Ok lets start with the point, this is one of the better concealers that I have used!
Super creamy and the tone I bought works perfectly with my BB cream. It doesn't conceal my acne like I would like but that is kind of expected. The packaging is kind of lame but its all good, I care about quality more.
If you are looking for super strong coverage, this probably isn't for you but if you want something more mild, this is a winner! I am just sticking with this because of its price, as well as the fact that it is extremely creamy and great for those who have dry or combination skin.

It has kinda good coverage but there's not a lot of product in that thing! It lasted me 3 weeks... I think it's a great product for the price but there's definitly not enough

This is one of the very first concealeds I tried. I did find that it took a few layers to cover my blemishes but it never broke me out. The brush was always pushing out too much product so I eventually gave up on this & moved onto other concealers. However, oil based concealers made my skin SO MUCH worse. I'm thinking of going back to this concealer & ditching foundation. It's great for undereye circles but its not the best for blemishes. Still, it won't worsen your skin so I guess it's better in the long term. Great product!

I have not purchased many cream concealers, but all my previous brands were a bust. I was pleasently surprised with this product when I decided to give it a go!
The consistancy is smooth and creamy, almost like it was whipped up into a frothy liquid. It is not at all thick, or runny either. It is a nice, happy medium so that it isn't heavy, nor is it poor coverage. Just the right amount of coverage and it is buildable for more prominant blemishes. The color matches my skin-tone perfectly and the shade stays true through the day.
Despite my love for the product itself, the packaging was a bit odd. The top simply screws off and reveals the bristles, no plastic wrapping or a cardboard box. Someone at the store could have easily opened it and used it/exposed it to air and bacteria, resulting in contamination. I got mine from walmart, I dont know if other stores have different packaging for it, but it's not safe.
You simply apply pressure on the tube for the product to squeeze out of the bristles, which also means that if it sits in your bag, it has the risk of leaking product into the tube if it gets squished. However, it is not super sensitive and the product doesn't just come gushing out at the slightest of a squeeze on the tube, which is a plus.
Despite my irritation at the packaging, the actual product is fantastic, I will repurchase for as long as I can.

Coverage, for me and colour match being fair is good, but this stuff has caused me to get huge white zits under my eye brows and in between my brows where I blend it up lightly into to cover up age lines, at first I thought my hormones might be whack, but this morning I looked at myself and said, there must be something really wrong with something I'm using. I don't use a lot of products and haven't used any other foundations aside from Marcelle powder (which has never caused problems for me prior) so I now blame this product. Will be throwing out and letting my skin purge itself completely now, terrible! Plus for $8+ I spent at my local Shoppers it wasn't even that big of a steal. Anyone with T-zone, oily/dry combo skin, definitely beware.
Biggest downside, didn't realize it had that silly brush instead of just the ability to squeeze it out and apply with my fingers, you lose most of the product on the brush and thus I just used the brush, which is silly of me because it's a bacterial hazard to us sensitive skinned folk. :P

This is an excellent concealer with medium to full coverage.
The texture is great and it's wonderful to highlight with.
The downside is it starts to have a bad smell after a while, due to the fact that it has a built-in brush most likely.

I'd give this a 4 since I think it's a 3-4 if you want to cover blemishes, but a 5 if you want to perfect the areas around your eyes, nose, and mouth. I bought this to serve as an undereye concealer based on reviews, and I've been very happy with the texture, finish, and wear of this product. It's creamy, blendable, and long-lasting, and it doesn't cake up and become splotchy like other concealers. I also like the pen applicator because I can apply a lot of product or very little to precise areas. This even makes a great lip line perfecter if you trace it lightly around your lips.
I don't think it's pigmented enough for serious blemishes, though, only fading discoloration. It hides my small red spots, but I don't think it's heavy-duty enough for more than that.
I got the lightest color because I'm always the lightest shade in any brand, but I think I could have done well with the next shade up. I think this concealer is definitely worth checking out, and I can see why it's gotten such good reviews.
