Rimmel Match Perfection Illuminating Concealer - Reviewed!

I honestly don't know why it has taken me so long to review this product, the fact that this is my second tube of it means I must really like it! As i've said i'm a bit hit and miss when it comes to Rimmel, some products I love some product I hate. I tried the powder from this range and found it to be way too orange! But back to the concealer...
 Rimmel claim that this product is a 'skin tone adapting concealer' it is also a 2 in 1 product that concealers and highlights at the same time. For me I wouldn't personally use this on blemishes because you don't really want to highlight those but it is perfect for under the eye. 
The packaging is nice and simple, it comes in a nude coloured tube with blue writing. It does have a brush applicator which doesn't bother me too much since I use it under the eyes but if I was using it anywhere else I would put the product on my hand and then use my fingers.
Now the colour range for this is pretty poor, there's only 3 shades which means if you're not pale to medium skintone there won't be a shade for you which is such a shame. 
For me the shade Ivory is a pretty great shade for me, I find that it really brightens under my eyes whilst still covering any blue tones or dark circles. It doesn't give full coverage but is great for everday when you don't need full coverage because it feels so light on the skin. If I need a full coverage I find it works great over something like Benefit Erase Paste.

I really like this concealer, it is just a great everday product and it always seems to be in my make-up bag. 

Rimmel Match Perfection Illuminating Concealer £5.99 retails for and is available here.
