|Rimmel London Match Perfection 2-in-1 Concealer & Highlighter|
Finding the perfect concealer is like finding the right man. There are ones that will do an adequate job for you and leave you somewhat satisfied. Others can disappoint to such an extent that you will drop them and search for another. Still, there are concealers that you can be happy to live with like Rimmel London's Match Perfection 2-in-1 Concealer & Highlighters because of how they totally satisfy you in that crucial need of covering unsightly under eye dark circles!
This concealer comes in a tube with a synthetic brush at the other end. I received two shades of this concealer in #125 Fair (yellow-based) and #245 Light (slightly darker and pink-based). I found the spreadable thick consistency made for effortless blending of this creamy concealer while it moisturized enough to skip the need for eye cream. The formula covered the darkness nicely but if you needed more coverage, this product is buildable.
Another important thing is this product didn't cake or settle into those fine creases for quite a while while the highlighter inside did a wonderful job to brighten the area in the process.
If skillful, you could also use this concealer to hide a blemish. Dab some on with your finger or brush and give it a minute to set before applying powder for great opaque coverage. However, I do think this is better for using under the eye since it has the highlighter.
You do squeeze a bit extra through the brush than with, perhaps, a different form. However, the amount of waste really doesn't add up to that much in my opinion when you take into consideration overall cost.
If you are of the opinion it's more unsanitary having the product dispense directly onto the brush, you need to look at the other forms of concealers like wands, pots, or tubes. Whatever form you prefer, once used and put back into the container or when touched with a finger also comes in contact with air, more skin, and the product to return inside the concealer.
Every product once used does harbor bacteria and needs replaced after a few months--regardless of price or form. With that said, I think this was one of the best concealers that I have found and was pleased with the results I got especially with the #125 Fair shade. If you are looking for a new concealer, I can really recommend Rimmel London Match Perfection 2-in-1 Concealer & Highlighter!
