Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define | Review

When it comes to concealers I like to think I know what's good and what's not. As someone who suffers from dark circles, pigmentation and a whole lot of redness, it's the one step I can't afford to skip. I'm sure I don't have to tell you that Makeup Revolution's latest launch has caused quite a stir in the beauty community. It was barely on the shelves five minutes and half of the shades sold out! It's also been dubbed as a dupe for the cult Tarte Shape Tape Concealer. I couldn't resist picking one up for myself and after giving it a fair trial, I'm finally ready to share my thoughts with you! 
makeup revolution concealer review C1
The Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer costs £4 and you get 3.4ml which isn't an insane amount of product but for the price, you can't really complain. There are currently 18 shades available (soon to be 25), ranging from fair to deep and with a selection of different undertones. It comes in a small tube and has the cutest rose gold packaging. It has a large doe-foot applicator which is super soft and comfortable to use. 

It claims to be lightweight yet full coverage and offers a long-wearing, matte finish that won't settle in fine lines or accentuate pores. At such an affordable price point, I was definitely a little sceptical. I purchased mine in the shade C1 which is for fair skin tones with a neutral undertone and is currently the lightest shade they do. Surprisingly it matches my skin tone perfectly which is quite a rare find - especially for a drugstore concealer! The formula is super creamy and pigmented but it doesn't feel heavy or thick in the slightest. The concealer is definitely full coverage and it's one of the only ones I've found that actually covers my dark circles and redness. 

Once I've applied my foundation I like to dot this on the areas where I need more coverage which is usually under my eyes, around my nose and across my cheeks. My favourite way to blend it out is with a damp Miracle Complexion Sponge but you can definitely use a brush if you prefer. It blends out extremely well and I love that I don't have to apply multiple layers to get good coverage. One application is enough to get rid any discolouration and blemishes. It sets to a matte finish but I always like to go over my face with a bit of translucent powder. Throughout the day it will start to crease slightly under my eyes but I don't mind as this happens with every concealer I use and the overall staying power is the best I've ever found! 

I'm absolutely obsessed with this concealer and I cannot say enough good things about it! For £4, you seriously can't go wrong! I really hope they bring out a matching foundation!

Have you tried this concealer? What are your thoughts?
