I know a lot of people have been raving about this concealer so I thought I’d better give it a try. I mean it’s always good to test drugstore products as they are banging on the doors of the expensive brands.
This is available to purchase from the company webite (see here), Beauty Bay (see here) and Superdrug (see here). It retails for £4.99 for 4ml of product but you can always grab the supersized one which is £7 for 13grams. I got mine from Beauty Bay and it arrived within a week of placing the order.
The packaging is the same as most concealers just a little bit smaller but it feels sturdy. The size makes it perfect for slipping into your handbag or makeup bag. Its got a thicker doe foot applicator than most concealers which means it holds a lot more product. I rarely need to double dip into this concealer.
Now THIS is a shade range Makeup Revolution. 50 shades of concealer that go from very pale to very dark with all undertones covered. I don’t think I’ve seen a better shade range if I’m honest and I’m pretty certain there is a shade for everyone. If you can’t find yours let me know in the comments. I picked up the shade 2.5 which is probably slightly too light for me but the next shade with my undertone is my foundation shade.
The website describes this as a lightweight, full coverage concealer that covers blemishes, dark circles and evens out your skin. It’s supposed to leave you with a flawless matte finish that doesn’t settle into the fine lines and pores. The long wearing, intense pigment makes this ideal for contouring and adding definition.
This is definitely a full coverage concealer with good pigment. I didn’t need to use more than a couple of spots on my undereyes to cover my massive bags. It blends well with other base products so I’m sure this will work well for contour. As I’m so crap at getting the right shade I haven’t tried this for contouring so if you have let us know how you found it. I prefer blending this out with a sponge rather than a brush as it’s easier to get that seamless blend. It does leave you with a flawless, matte base but I’d advise using a setting spray after application to bring some natural glow back. One really amazing feature of this concealer, it didn’t oxidise much.
It is really lightweight on the skin despite feeling quite thick in the tube and is pretty long lasting. You can wear this for about 4 hours before it starts breaking down in areas around the nose, mouth and eyes. This may be down to my skin so it may last longer for those that have a less oily complexion. It sets well with both loose and compact powder but I think there’s less texture when using the loose. For me, I really don’t like baking with this concealer. In photos, it does look stunning and flawless but in real life it looks textured and dry.
Overall, I’m really happy with the Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer. To start with the shade range is what I expect to see from companies and seeing this in a drugstore brand makes me so happy. Due to this shade range and long lasting pigment, you can use this as both a concealer and a contour. It is easy to apply and blend over other products and you don’t need much to cover blemishes. For the price, I’d highly recommend this for anyone; high budget or not.
