Review: Rimmel Wake me up concealer (Classic beige)

Hello lovelies, how are you all doing?

I feel like lately my blog has been going a little off the track of the 'beauty/fashion' side and i wanted to pull it back onto that path with a review! This is going to be a rather short one today, I hope you enjoy and as always all feedback is appreciated! I'm sorry I haven't made any videos in a while its because I need a decent camera as using my phone to film is really inconvenient. 
On with the review...

I purchased this concealer as sort on an impulse simply because I wanted to try it, and I have to say i'm very impressed with it. I received a small tester of the matching foundation in a magazine when it was first released and I have to stay i wasn't impressed at all, I felt like it was too orange, far too shimmery and the consistency wasn't up to scratch but the same definitely can't be said about the concealer - because of this i might even consider giving the foundation another go!

Consistency - Surprisingly I love the consistency of this, a light, smooth and very liquid like consistency to this means blending is so easy, especially with your fingers, and looks super natural. 

Coverage - I feel like the coverage on this is great, even though its a light concealer the slight illuminating effect of it means that my dark circles are covered in 1-2 light coats! 

Finish - Illuminating and bright, I find that it needs to be slightly powdered to remove the harsh glow it seems to have when a strong light hits that area. However the same glow that it has also means the inner corner of your eyes are lightened which helps wake you up - matches the name 'wake me up'.

Wear - I hate to say but to all those die hard Collection Concealer lovers I think this one lasts longer! The horror. But it's true, on me personally this concealer stayed put all day without mixing weirdly with the powder I use to set it  - something the collection concealer often does to me after a long day. 

Colour range - Not the best colour range but I don't think any of Rimmel's face products have a good enough colour range, if you're skin is fairly dark olive and on wards I don't think you'll find a colour right for you. 

Overall I think this concealer has become a staple in my makeup routine and I won't be giving it up any time soon! If any of you guys have tried the matching foundation, what do you think? Is it worth buying? Comment bellow!
