Rimmel Lasting Finish Concealer Review

I featured this Rimmel Concealer in my Superdrug and Boots Beauty Haul a few months ago, and I really wanted to love it, and I thought I would, but I just don't. There are good things to it, it's not completely awful but it's just not what I expected.
I'm so disappointed that I don't like it because I've been desperate for a new concealer and because I love the Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation, I thought this would be a pretty good addition to my makeup bag. I don't know if it's just my skin that it doesn't really work with or if it is just the product. I'd heard mixed things about this to be honest like I had about the foundation but the foundation for me is just perfect and my go to one, so I expected the same from the concealer.

I'll start with what I do like about it because as I said it isn't all bad and I don't want this to just be a full on negative post. I love the packaging and the size of it. I love how different it is to other concealers in that way, most are quite thin concealers in a tube whereas this is the complete opposite. It's the perfect size for your makeup bag or handbag and brilliant for that reason if you're in desperate need of a bit of concealer on your way to work, or if a spot just turns up during the day and you want to cover it up! I'll probably keep it just for that reason because my skin can be quite temperamental sometimes. I found it's really heavy coverage so it didn't take much of the product to cover any spots of blemishes on my skin. So for an emergency spot or something like that I would use it.

The reason I don't particuarly like it and it won't be my go to concealer is because it is so hard to blend in! Usually with my other concealers I can easily blend in under my eye or on any spots with my beauty sponge or with a brush and with this I just couldn't. It dried pretty quickly I found on my skin so by the time I'd picked a brush up it was already drying and sticking to my skin so I had to proper try and rub it in which you shouldn't really need to do. It actually hurt a little bit to try and blend this just because it dried so quickly and it's such a thick consistency. I also found when I had managed to blend it in, I could feel it there on my skin. I don't want my face to feel sticky or heavy and I've found with this I do. I don't know, I don't want to hate this at all, I usually love Rimmel and most of my makeup bag is made up of their products but for me this just doesn't work. I think I'm going to have to go back to my trusty Maybelline Fit Me Concealer. This doesn't really even compare.

Whats your favourite concealer? Can you recommend any I should try? Have you tried this one? If so I would love to know your thoughts! Maybe it's just my skin that this doesn't work with very well.
