I don’t normally track the products that Makeup Revolution launch but when I heard about the new Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer range, I had to stand up and applaud as they have outdone themselves! Makeup Revolution have managed to do what SO many luxury and highstreet beauty brands continually struggle to do by launching an 18 shade concealer range with A WIDE SHADE SPECTRUM and guess what guys . . . I’m nowhere close to being the darkest shade!
“Do you know how rare and unusual that is for a UK Beauty brand?’
The Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealers – £4 via Superdrug- comes in 18 shades with in a range of undertones. These concealers have been designed to be a lightweight yet full coverage with a matte finish that has the ability to ‘cover blemishes, even skin tone and counteract dark circles’ and have been formulated with an intense, long-wearing pigment that is versatile enough to be used to highlight and contour the face. It also comes with an extremely large doe -foot applicator to allow for smooth application.
Call it what you want but I never trust any swatch that I didn’t swatch myself – I’m kidding lol – I decided to get the last 8 shades from the Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer range; even though I knew that that the Makeup Revolution C13 Conceal and Define Concealer would probably work as my shade, as I really wanted zero in the subtle shade changes for each concealer shade. I also thought that at £4 a pop, I wasn’t going to break the bank as I have spend more than on one luxury concealer.
The shades I have on hand for this review are the:-
- Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer in C12
- Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer in C13 (my concealer shade)
- Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer in C14 (gradient concealer shade)
- Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer in C15 (possible foundation shade)
- Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer in C16
- Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer in C17
- Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer in C18 (contour shade)
and as you can see from my swatch below, we actually have a lot of variety to work with here with no ashiness or grey-undertones in sight. I do think that there are some big shade jumps between C12, C13 and C14 AND that the shades run very warm but for a £4 price tag – you can mix two shades together to create a concealer colour that is right for your skin tone
On my face I’ve used the Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer in C13 and C14 and the Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer in C18 as my contour and as I’m actually really impressed with the full coverage formulation. Makeup Revolution were not lying when they said that this concealer was lightweight, easy to apply and easy to blend.
For £4 there isn’t too much I can say about the packaging for the Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer. They are exactly how I would expect a budget beauty product to look – plastic – but the oversized wand is actually quite good. I have seen a lot of people have likened the wand to the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer but as I have never used this concealer, I cannot comment on that but I can understand why Makeup Revolution have been “inspired” to use a similar applicator for their concealer as it makes concealing and contouring a dream.
I think this product is actually very good and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a cheap and cheerful, creamy concealer.
