A few weeks ago, Makeup Revolution released this little concealer which has had bloggers and makeup lovers all over the country shouting with joy. I read quite a few reviews before purchasing it for myself, one blogger even stating that it is the perfect dupe of the Tarte concealer, without the price tag to match.
As a blogger, it was imperative that I try it out myself and share my thoughts with all of you. I am a huge fan of the Collection concealer, which has held a place in my makeup bag for a few years now, and I was desperate to try out this one. You can imagine my excitement when I first discovered this concealer because, not only is it cheap, it is also CRUELTY-FREE! It’s already a win in my books.
The price of this concealer is extremely cheap, currently sitting at only £4 in Superdrug. There has been some speculation that it’ll rise due to the popularity of the product, but I doubt that’ll happen as Makeup Revolution tend to be very generous with their prices. I’m usually rather sceptical to use cheap makeup but, after reading all the reviews from bloggers I trust, I was confident enough to splash out £4 (I do spoil myself) and try it.
I purchased the shade C2 online as C1 was out of stock. I assumed that there wouldn’t be much difference between the two and I was right. C2 is the perfect shade for me and looks extremely natural on my skin. For daily wear, I put a bit on any blemishes as well as under my eyes, blending it out with my beauty blender. I find it blends a lot easier than the Collection concealer with buildable coverage. It conceals any dark circles I may have, leaving me looking more awake and fresh. I’m going to slap my hand here and admit that I fell asleep with a little makeup on the other night (bad beauty blogger!), but I woke up to my concealer still in place. It’s long-lasting, feels light on the skin, and affordable.
What first drew me to this concealer was the adorable packaging it came in. Although it’s a rather small product, there is a lot of concealer in the little tube and I know it’ll last a long time. The applicator is relatively thick, meaning you can scoop out product from the side of the tube rather than let it go to waste. Small enough to fit into any handbag, I will definitely be purchasing this again.
