I’m still using my Kat Von D Concealer for blemishes because so far it’s the best I’ve used (I’m thinking I’m going to try the NARS once this one is done though). Anyway! For under my eyes I feel that Kat’s concealer is too thick. I had heard great things about the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation and little bits here and there about the concealer. I figured I would try it out seeing as I needed an under eye concealer, it was cheap and if it says Wake Me Up on it, I’m down. Upon application it’s not very thick but it’s not very thin either, it works nicely for under the eyes. It blends super easily and it does hide and lighten up any circles you may have under there. My only complaint is that I do find it creases. I know everything pretty much creases under there but some do it worse then others and I don’t think this one is terrible – it’s not great either. Though not a complaint from me since I was only using this for under my eyes but possibly a complaint for someone wanting to use this to cover blemishes as well, I didn’t find it covered my blemishes very well. If you’re on a budget or just don’t want to spend much on an under eye concealer, I do think this is a great choice but, if you don’t care, maybe look at something else.
I don’t know what I expect from mascara’s. I think I expect too much right away. Like….I don’t want to have to work for it when it comes to mascara. I feel like with this product I have to work for it. It claims that after one coat your lashes will look full, plump and voluptuous. I would have to disagree. If you’re putting this on with minimal effort I feel like you don’t even know you’re wearing mascara. If you really work that wand, yes, you achieve a “mascara’d” (is that EVEN a word?) look, but nothing that stands out! If you apply 2 coats it looks a bit like what it claims to do! I just think that this product is not worth the effort. There’s effort and then there’s too much effort and this is the latter. It’s not even really good for the effortless days. Okay soon you’ll be able to play a drinking game by drinking every time you read the word effort. I’ll stop now. Pass on this one, ladies!
