Rimmel wake me up concealer

I have used the Rimmel wake me up foundation as a go to foundation for a while, and while I have used it up in the past few months and I am now opting to use up other products before repurchasing that one I decided to give the wake me up concealer a try as I really like the foundation. I bought this a while ago and went for the shade Ivory as it is the lightest one they had in the concealer. I was expecting great things from this as I have enjoyed the foundation and so I hoped it would live up to the expectations I put it under. 

The packaging is a see through tube which I like as you begin to see when the product is running out and becoming low, so you can buy a back up ready. It has silver writing printed on the tube which I think is a lovely touch and makes a nice change from boring black! The cap is bright orange to match the theme of the wake me up range, and so ties in nicely with the foundation and the branding. The product has a doe foot applicator which is the standard for this style of liquid concealer, and it works well to apply product to the skin.

The colour is the shade Ivory, and while as far as I can tell this is the lightest shade, it is too dark for me to use as a brightening concealer or as a spot concealer, just as the Ivory foundation is too dark for me. I wont critique the brand on the fact the shades don't go light enough for me, as I admit a lot of brands seem to be too dark for me and I have only found a select few high street ones that do suit my skin tone, but just a warning if you are ghostly pale like I am!

The concealer applies well and works well on both the under eye and on spots and blemishes, as well as blending into the skin an looking flawless with a foundation. It does have a glow to it like the foundation, but it is subtle enough to use on blemishes, but gives a subtle bit of highlight to the under eyes. It blended in nicely with both a sponge or a brush and I was really pleased with the finish. 

I did really enjoy this concealer and it worked really well for me, however the fact it is too dark for me means I will only really be able to use it in the summer on the condition I either fake tan or bronze up my complexion. I might however pass this one on to a friend who it may suit. At £5.49 I think it is a good price and a nice one on the high street if you are looking to try a new concealer. You can find the product here on Boots, where you can also find the 4 shades in the range.
