Review: Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer


Another one with a mouthful of a name, it is actually: Rimmel Match Perfection Skin Tone Adapting Concealer. I wasn't specifically looking for a new concealer when I spotted this, but I had read a review on it and had kept it on my "maybe" list. I actually don't believe in the whole hocus pocus of skin  matching products, but when I was trying to figure out what shade to buy I tried a few on my hand. I picked 03 Classic Beige ( I got it a shade darker, I find it covers better under eye when it's a shade darker than my skin) and after looking at a few other things happened to look at my hand and couldn't see the swatches. Good to know it matched well.


I bought this more for use under my eyes, and I am pretty happy with it. It covers pretty well but you have to be fast to set it as it does crease. Once set with powder it lasts quite well on my skin. I apply it and let it set for a minute to dry just a bit, then blend it in, otherwise it just sort of lays there.  I also didn't find that it had any highlighting properties. The tube claims that this is not only a concealer, but it is a 2 in 1 Concealer and Highlighter, but other than lightening darkness (which all concealers do) I didn't see any highlighting. While I intended on using it for my eyes, I gave it a try on my face to cover acne scars and it works really well. I've been using a lighter foundation that has less coverage, and I have found that this concealer not only covers, but lasts the day. I have found that a lot of concealers cover scars and spots well in the morning but by the end of the day are pretty much gone.


 The squeeze tube is styled after a highlighting product, equipped with a brush on the end. I don't mind the brush, but it really isn't necessary because you can't actually use it to apply the foundation because you end up with too much product. I use the brush to dab it on then use a separate brush (or my finger if I'm being lazy) to pat it around.

I have a fair number of foundations on the go, but I have been reaching for this one quite frequently. For an inexpensive product (I think it was $5.97 or so at Wal Mart) it works quite well and I would probably buy it again.

Have you tried this concealer? What did you think?
