There’s no denying that Makeup Revolution is possibly one of my favourite drug store brands on the planet. They’re forever releasing new products and with their budget friendly prices it makes it easier for skint people like me to own new pretties possibly every week. So when I heard that they were releasing a new concealer called Conceal & Define to the market I knew instantly I needed to get my grubby little hands on it and give it a whirl. My absolute favourite concealer currently is the Tarte Shape Tape (can read my review here) and I seriously cannot rave about it enough. But word went around that this new release was practically a dupe and at a fifth of the price this mamma had to do some comparisons and test for herself.
So this comes in 18 shades … yep, 18 shades for a drugstore concealer! Brands are finally clicking on and I’m all for this! From cool undertones to peachy undertones, there’s something for everyone. I do think they could of thrown in a few more shades though, personal opinion however I did hear there are more shades to come!
So I bought the shade C2 (for fair skin tones with yellow undertone), I was hoping to get C1 however there was none in stock. Seems like a mission to try and find the lightest shade at the moment, its been out of stock online since release day and all my local stores are sold out too. However this shade was the next best thing for me and it suits my skin tone perfectly.
The tube comes with 3.4ml of product, a third of what you would get from Shape Tape, however a little does go a long way. Using the thick doe-foot applicator I applied a little bit under the eyes, down the bridge of my nose, my chin and a little bit onto the forehead too then use a damp beauty blender to smooth it out. I do recommend setting this concealer down with a powder though as I found it creased throughout the day without one. However the following day I baked my face with a translucent powder and it stayed put. Also work fast with this, it dries FAST! If using a beauty blender this isn’t such an issue however I tried with a brush and struggled slightly to blend it out.
Despite 1 or 2 flaws I’m seriously impressed with this concealer, I haven’t even picked up my Shape Tape since making this purchase. Its full coverage, doesn’t feel heavy on the skin and dries matte. Exactly what I want from a concealer. Plus it looks super cute with the rose gold theme, perfect for your dresser.
I think its safe to say that Makeup Revolution are the masters of dupes. This feels pretty similar to my Tarte Shape Tape in so many ways. You could put the Shape Tape concealer in this bottle and I don’t think I’d be able to tell the difference apart from the colour.
Have you tried this concealer yet?
