Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer vs Maybelline Fit Me Concealer

I have done one of these comparison blog posts before and it seemed to go down really well, so I thought I would do another for you guys… This time I wanted to do it on drugstore products. I know that drugstore products are reasonably cheap, but these two basically seem like the same products and I already owned them both. So I wanted to compare the two so you guys don’t go and buy the two like I did!

So let’s jump into it. First I want to mention the amount of product that you get. In the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer you get 6.8ml and in the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer you get 7ml. So obviously there is a tiny amount more in the Rimmel but it is a pretty unnoticeable amount. So I would say in terms of quantity they are on a level playing field.

Then let’s get on to how it is applied. Both the Maybelline and Rimmel have doe foot applicators, which are quick and easy to use but both aren’t particularly hygienic, especially if you are using this to conceal blemishes as it can spread infection. But for highlighting both concealers are really good.

The consistency of the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer is creamy but not too thick, nothing like the Kat Von D Lock It but it is easy applied thanks to the doe foot applicator. The Rimmel Wake Me Up is a much thinner consistency and it glides on the skin much more smooth. For me I like the thicker feeling and concealers because you can really blend and buff it into the skin. But it is obviously just personal preference.

Now for packaging… The Maybelline Fit Me is a squared shape packaging, more or less identical to the Nars Creamy Concealer. In fact, I would say that this entire product is just a dupe for that product. It is nice packaging, but it does feel cheap, but that’s exactly what it is so who is really going to complain. The Rimmel Wake Me Up packaging I have to say isn’t my favourite. I feel like the plastic packaging is really cheap feeling and doesn’t compare to some other brands that I have. But the bright orange top does make it easy to grab in my makeup drawer!

Now let’s get onto the price. Maybelline Fit Me is on the shelves here in the UK for £5.99 and the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer £5.49.

Overall, I have to say that even though the Maybelline Fit Me is a touch more expensive and you get a little less product, in my opinion it is just an overall better concealer. It offers better coverage and blends in seamlessly.

I would love to hear from you and if you have tried both of these concealers do you have a preference? I will also link below to any of the products mentioned as well as some other concealers that I have been loving!
