Battle of the concealers, Rimmel wake me up Vs maybeline fit me

Hello everyone.
Welcome back to the Blog!

 Today I will be comparing the Rimmel wake me up and maybeline fit me concealers. So lets start with the Rimmel wake me up concealer.  It only comes in three shades which I feel will not cater for everyone.   Priced at £5.49 for 7ml it comes in a standard concealer bottle with a removable wand.  The handle of the wand is orange and fits easily in the hand.  

It is slightly fragranced but is in no way over powering.  It claims to "Conceals and illuminates under the eyes and conceals blemishes". It can be found here.  I applied under my eyes to brighten them and also on my chin as I had been experiencing a breakout.  ( I used a cotton bud to apply to the chin to avoid contamination of the wand) . The wand is the  standard wand that liquid concealers have.  Nothing different or special. 

The concealer is quite a thick substance and does cover extremely well.  I blended using a real techniques miracle complexion sponge which can be purchased here for £5.99. 
It blended out into my foundation extremely well giving good coverage and lightening under the eyes.  It covered over my blemishes on my chin well and left my skin feeling great.  All in all this is a good product especially when you consider the price.  I have had higher end concealers that haven't covered as well.  

Now on to the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer.  .

Again it comes in the bog standard kind of packaging as liquid concealers do. It costs £5.99 and you can find it here
The wand fits well in the hand and is easier to grip as it has a square shape to it. Again slightly fragranced but not over powering.
  It comes in six shades which I feel better caters for every skin tone.  It promises to "Correct the appearance of imperfections without hiding the skins natural radiance."  Again I applied to the same areas, under the eye and on my chin blemishes, but I found this product to be watery and not to cover as well as the rimmel product.  I blended it out with the sponge and to be honest you couldn't see the benefits of the concealer.  I feel it doesn't live up to its claims.  You have to remember that this is only a medium cover concealer but even so I would expect more from it.   To be honest I would personally pick the Rimmel concealer,  That's if you can find it in your shade! 

I hope this review has been helpful to you and you vist again soon.
Bye for now!
