Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer is by far my new favourite drugstore concealer.
Most drugstore concealers are too dark for me, as I am pretty fair. At MAC I’d be an NW 15. Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer is a skin tone adapting concealer, therefore there are only 3 shades to choose from. I chose the lightest one which is 010 Ivory.
Just from swatching it I could tell that Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer was very creamy and very moisturizing! It’s also supposed to banish any signs of fatigue and illuminate the eye area while concealing dark circles.
Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer does a decent job at concealing my purple circles and even covers the sun damage on the underneath the outer corner of my eye, but boy does it illuminate the eye or what! Now I’ve tried the infamous YSL Touche Eclat and I can tell you that the Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer does a better job at concealing and illuminating. It lasts all day for me too. And it matches my skin tone really well! That in itself is amazing for me. It doesn’t settle into any fine lines around my eyes at all either. If you have really bad dark circles though, you’d still need a colour corrector that’s peach or orange toned first, and then you could use the Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer over top of that.
The only problem I have with the Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer is the applicator.
The applicator is a brush style dispenser, much like the YSL Touche Eclat except that you squeeze the tube to release the product into the brush. It’s just way too hard to control how much you squeeze out and I get way too much product out. I also don’t use the brush to apply the Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer, I use my fingers to lightly pat it on.
Otherwise, I’d have to say that the Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer is a lovely drugstore concealer and I highly recommend trying it out.
