Review; Rimmel Stay Matte Dual Action Concealer

So I saw on Lola's blog that you could get a free Rimmel Stay Matte Dual Action Concealer if you just pay the P&P of £1.99 from HalfPricePerfumes. All you needed to do was enter the code freerimmel at check out. 

I naturally jumped at the chance to get some discounted makeup, and am really glad I did! 

The product comes in a pretty glossy creamy gold tube, with a  twist bottom to enable the concealer to slide up so you can use it. The concealer itself has a green core which is included to 'treat' your blemishes as you hide them. 

 The colour I choose was Soft Ivory which is a little too dark for me but when I blend it in it looks fine. I find it easy to build up and I have been able to cover larger spots and under eye circles using this product. 

The green doesn't show up much in this photo, its much more of a minty green

I have been using this concealer for a couple of days now and I have to be honest and say it does not appear to have reduced my existing spots in anyway however it may take longer to reduce them. I must also add that I have not got any new spots coming through in other places where I have used the concealer, like over red patches and round my nose.

At the end of the day, I did just buy this product for concealing my spots and not treating them, and overall I do really like this product!

  2. I just bought this product a few days ago and have similar opinions to you. I've been thinking of reviewing it myself! I was wondering if you have oily or dry skin? I have fairly oily skin and this is great for me.

    Will definitely be following! x
