Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer Review

Hi Divas

Makeup Revolution has an array of affordable products to choose from. One of the most outstanding products from the brand has to be the Conceal and Define concealer. I don't know how they did it but this concealer manages to tick all the right boxes. It is super affordable, full coverage and comes in a whopping 50 shades ranging from fair to deep. When Makeup Revolution launched in South Africa last year (2018), I was very excited to get my hands on the concealer. I have heard so many great reviews on it. Unfortunately, we do not have all 50 shades on our shelves but we do have a satisfying range to choose from. Each shade comes in different undertones within the fair, medium and deep ranges. I had to use quite a few before I could find a shade, I was happy with. For reference I am a medium to tan skin tone with yellow and olive undertones. I started out with shade C6 but that was too light for me. I then jumped to shade C8 but the undertone was peach and didn't match me at all. I purchased C7 and C10 which has a neutral to soft yellow undertone. C7, of cause is lighter and I use it on a daily basis to brighten my face. To conceal and give a more natural look I use C10 as it is closer to my actual skin tone. I hope that helps anyone who has a similar skin tone to me.

 This product is described as a full coverage concealer and contour. You can use it all over to hide blemishes and to tone and sculpt the face. It promises to give a smooth matte finish without accentuating fine lines and pores. It has long-wearing pigments which gives full coverage all day long. The concealer is packaged in a glass tube with a large doe foot applicator. It holds 4 ml of product which is quite little compared to other brands which hold 5 ml to 10 ml in concealers. You therefore can run fairly quickly out of the product if you use a substantial amount every day. The packaging is very sturdy and great for travel. Everything is very secure and you won't experience any leaking if carried around in a makeup bag. The doe foot applicator is a great size to pick up product and disperse it evenly on the face. It is very soft in texture and feels comfortable to use under the eyes. The product does come in clear glass with a rose gold top. The packaging is very sleek and I like that you can tell if you are going to run out of product soon.

The concealer is a liquid but it has a very creamy texture. It's quite thick and one stroke covers quite a large area on the face. For application, I like to only use one dip in the product for both areas under my eyes. I feel that it is enough coverage for me than dipping in twice. If you are someone with dark circles and pigmentation then you may need a second application. As I said it disperses a lot of product under my eyes and I like to blend it out with the warmth of my fingers instead of using a brush or sponge. I feel I get more coverage this way as the tools tend to soak up product. The concealer dries quite fast; therefore, you have to blend it out a few moments after you apply it or you will experience tugging and pulling. The concealer once dried, stays in place and it is difficult to manipulate the product after that. I always set my concealers with a translucent setting powder as I have normal to combination skin.

For an affordable/drug store product, this concealer performs excellently. It gives amazing coverage, blends effortlessly on all foundations and does not oxidize throughout the day. It covers my period blemishes really well and looks smooth and matte. It does not give a cakey appearance nor is it too drying for a matte consistency. It sits very comfortable on the skin and lasts all day long. I have not experienced any creasing in my fine lines nor has it interfered with my pores. This concealer is the best I have come across in the low-end range. It honestly acts as a high-end concealer. Do keep in mind that I have normal to combination skin and it may perform differently on very dry or oily skin tones. I personally love this concealer and will keep repurchasing. Have you tried this concealer? Do let me know your thoughts below.

Hope you found this review helpful.
