Makeup Revolution is one of the most popular drugstore brands in the UK and it’s easy to see why! They release amazing beauty products so quickly and the prices are affordable. I have tried a fair few of their new releases recently including; Reloaded Newtrals 2 which is a gorgeous rustic red and orange eyeshadow palette and the Renaissance Flick eyeliner which is an easy to use, long-lasting eyeliner pen.
There was such a huge hype when the Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define concealer came out and I heard so many positive things, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. I wanted to see if the claims were true regarding the full coverage concealer!
Getting this concealer was a blooming nightmare, trust me! It took me 3 months till my local Superdrug had this back in stock. I could have bought it online but I like testing before I buy my base makeup.
Conceal & Define comes in 25 shades ranging from fair to deep, in cool, neutral and warm undertones. This concealer is described as lightweight and full coverage. These concealers are Cruelty-Free and also Vegan-Friendly too.
I just love it! I can’t fault it whatsoever. It has a lovely rose gold lid and label that stands out. It doesn’t come in a box but with such a lovely bottle, who needs one right?
It has a large doe foot applicator that makes this concealer a breeze to apply. This is a multi-use product so can be used on the under eyes, blemishes and also use to contour. I love to use it on my under eys mostly as I have dark circles, so I use 3 dots of product and blend it with either my Real Techniques concealer brush or Beauty Blender.
The feel of this on the skin is almost silky yet super creamy. If I could compare it to another concealer I would say the texture is similar to the Bourjois healthy mix concealer.
C4 is described for light skin tones with pink undertone. I would say its very true to this claim as I buy foundations and concealers in these shades and this concealer compliments them perfectly.
It has a lovely dewy finish in my opinion. The finish can also depend on the primer used as I find when I use a primer for my pores, it makes this concealer look more matte.
This concealer lasts very well even with just a primer but for extra ‘staying power’ I would say use finishing powder and a makeup setting spray ( my favourite is the urban decay all nighter spray, it’s bloody amazing and works wonders in any season).
As much as I love this concealer I am a bit shocked at how little amount of product you get since you only get 3.4ml of product which was a little surprising as the bottle looks like it holds a lot more. Most concealers I’ve had contain a lot more than 5ml. Apart from that, I have no fault in this concealer at all and I can see why it has so much excitement about it.
I have dark circles that often have people asking me if I am tired but since using this I haven’t had one person ask me that. Applying this is easy as pie as the large doe foot applicator is very soft and applying it to the skin is delicate, unlike some concealer wands that are sharp and rough.
It works wonderfully with my Kat Von D lock-it foundation and stays in place all day without creasing or wrinkling, even on warm days/ even parties when gin is involved.
I just love that Makeup Revolution have 25 shades for their concealer which is a lot more than any other drugstore brand I have seen and I hope other brands follow suit and make more shades.
