Worth the hype?! The Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Full Coverage Concealer (Review)

Here you will find everything that you need to know on the new Conceal & Define Full Coverage Concealer by Makeup Revolution.

We’ve all heard of this product, I’m sure!? Having already done its rounds on YouTube earlier on within this year, I could confidently say that there are A LOT of reviews up on this rather famous product already.

Although, before outlining any of my own feelings towards this product, I would just like to talk through this products description slightly.

The new Conceal & Define Concealer by Makeup Revolution has a shade range of eighteen. Suitable for those with fair skin tones (with yellow undertones), this concealer will also pair nicely with deep skin tones, cool skins tones, neutrals and warm skin tones too… And YES, I just love a good shade range!

Described with a lightweight formula, this concealer is said to be FULL COVERAGE?! Ideally allowing you to conceal and cover both imperfections and darker-hued areas perfectly well. What more could one want from a concealer like this, I just don’t know!?

The main questions are, however, really quite simple…

Do I like this concealer and do I actually think that it is worth the hype?!

So, before anything else comes into play, I would just like to outline the fact that this concealer has been compared to the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer in the past. With some claiming that this concealer is the perfect dupe, there are also others saying that this £4 concealer is better!? With all of this in mind, I must tell you that I was very interested to first try this product out because to be entirely honest with you all, I am actually not a fan of the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer AT ALL.

For my skin type, the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer has a far too thick and heavy consistency. I find that it suffocates my skin, settles and dries into any of those fine lines around my under-eyes, whilst also just sitting really quite awfully on my skin overall. I must tell you that I rarely use this product and always regret it when I actually do!

the moment of truth:

My thoughts on this £4 drugstore-friendly concealer are pretty self-explanatory if truth be told because I love it.

It has a lovely and smooth, cream-based formula which is effortlessly lighweight and easy to blend. You can mix and match the different shades of concealer together, to create something a little more custom OR just simply stick to one, it’s really that simple. There are no hidden tricks, no secrets that are yet to be told JUST a really nice and affordable concealer that works! 

In my personal opinion, and as I have made a point in saying that this concealer has been compared to the incredibly-hyped Tarte Shape Tape Concealer, I must confirm that the Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define is indeed a much better product in my opinion. Although, being as I don’t actually like the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer, please take this comparison with a pinch of salt, as there are many of people who absolutely adore Shape Tape and definitely wouldn’t say a bad word against it. It just doesn’t unforunately work for my skin type, whereas this one by Makeup Revolution does.

One other thing that is also just quickly worth mentioning is that the Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Full Coverage Concealers do crease and will settle unless tackled correctly. I like to either very gently dust a very thin layer of a very finely-milled setting powder over the top OR carefully bring a little eyeshadow a little futher down when blending. The choice is really up to you for how you set your under-eyes, of course, I just like to avoid the application of powder wherever possible.

As far as contouring goes, I can’t say that I have ever actually really considered contouring with a concealer product like this in the passed?! Although I do cream-contour occasionally and definitely appreciate how well it can work with drier skin types just like mine, I can’t say that I am overly keen on using this product alone for any other purpose than concealing.

With the full coverage and quite powerful pigmentation that this concealer has, I must say that these can appear just a little bit too structured for contouring in my personal opinion. Although, there are plenty that really like a very defined and strong contour, I just can’t say that this is a style of look that really works for me.
