My Drugstore Concealer Duo

My Drugstore Concealer Duo

I am not one to splurge on high end concealers. I'd rather spend my money on something I know is entirely affordable and works well for me and I've found two amazing drugstore concealers that are both of those things. They come in the form of Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer and the highly raved about Collection Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer. I have used these concealers together for the best part of 3 months now and I have no intention of changing them at all just yet.

I use the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer for under the eyes and the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer to conceal those nasty blemishes.

I have been using Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer(£5.49) in the shade Ivory for the last 3 months now ever since I bought it a few days after boxing day and it is aaamazing(if I do say so myself). It completely transforms my dull under eyes- it has an anti-fatique effect which highlights the under eyes and brightens up the whole under eye area. The concealer doesn't look cakey under the eyes at all which I have struggled with on many occasions with other concealers which I love. It is a little orangey for my liking with the yellow undertone but that's not a problem, I just blend, blend, blend. I only use this under the eyes and not on my blemishes as it tends to highlight them rather than conceal them.

I use the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer(£4.19) in the shade 1 Fair on my spots, redness and acne scars. I have used it for about two years now and nothing quite conceals those horrendous flaws like this little beauty does. It's a little orangey like the Rimmel wake me up concealer, it's not as dark but it's the closest shade to my skin tone. This concealer blends in like a dream and it has incredibly high coverage- it covers every single imperfection possible without looking cakey, unless you were to apply it onto broken skin. As you can see in the photos the writing on the packaging has rubbed off which I hate but Collection has now upgraded their packaging.

Have you tried any of these concealers?
