Rimmel Lasting Finish Concealer Review

I bought this concealer a few weeks ago when I went into my local superdrug hoping to re purchase my trusty collection lasting perfection concealer only to find it was out of stock, as it frequently is. I decided to pick up this concealer as at the time it was on offer and really love Rimmel as a brand so I thought it would be worth a try. The concealer's RRP is £5.49, so a fairly reasonable price but a bit more expensive than the collection concealer.

I would describe this concealer as full coverage, it comes in a pot and has an incredibly thick consistency as you would expect, however the only problem I find with this is that you have to be very quick when working with it as once its on the skin its very hard to move it, which in some ways works in your favour as it is very long lasting. On a typical day I will apply this under my eyes and wherever else necessary at about 9am and will take it of around 9pm by then there is still traces of the concealer it's not all there but I don't think any concealer would last 12 hours!

The best way I find to apply this concealer is with your hands, as the heat from your fingers makes it easier to blend the concealer giving you more time to apply it, where as using a brush makes it hard to blend and I often find trying to use a sponge doesn't move it very much at all. 

One of my favourite things about this concealer as its says on the back you can use it on 'dark circles, imperfections and discolourations' and it is defiantly right about that its just like a concentrated foundation so even though it won't counteract redness or dark circles but it still manages to cover them well enough. I love the fact that I only need to buy one concealer, which makes it cheaper and also easier when you are travelling or throwing some basics into your bag.

Overall, I really like this concealer as an alternative to my collection, it is a really good all rounder product and gives amazing coverage. Although the packaging is only plastic which may seem cheap to some I don't mind it as it makes it lighter and means you don't have to be so careful with it, worrying it may break. I think this product is also really good value for the quality of the product and for such a high coverage concealer its a bargain. However, I think I will save this concealer for days when I really need it as it is very high coverage for day to day. 

Thanks for reading, let me know if you have tried this concealer and what you think of it, I'd love to know!
