Why I Love Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Full Coverage Conceal & Contour (And You Should Too)!

My cousin, Sandra, who is also a makeup artist used Tarte's Shape Tape Concealer since it hit the market.  Like pretty much every person who has ever used it, she can definitely say it’s a wonderful concealer. However, the heafty price tag made her look for an alternative. She found this dupe from Makeup Revolution for only $7. This concealer hit the spot, and she knew she had to send me a tube in my shade. 

Why we love it:  Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define offers full coverage without being overly emollient. This stuff blends like a dream, and it didn't take long for us to fall in love! 

Like my setting powder, I have been looking for a replacement for my Nars concealer. Ever since Nars announced they were no longer cruelty-free I have been slowly replacing various products in my collection as I run out. Nars Creamy Concealer has been a staple in my kit since the product launched. It's full coverage and smooth texture propelled this tube to holy grail status. I purchased several colors for my kit, and have been trying out a few other brands in search of a replacement that can hold top spot. 

Wet n Wild's Photofocus Concealer is a drugstore version that I have been enjoying a great deal. However, I find the texture to be a bit too thick to earn top spot in my stash.

Urban Decay's Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer is a lovely high-end choice. It is paraben free, and its light diffusing properties make it a great choice for the under eye area. However,  I have not been able to find the right color match for my complexion. The shades seem to lean too light, or not quite brightening enough.

I am not someone who ever leaves the house without a proper base on my face. Sometimes this is tinted moisturizer or BB cream, sometimes a powder or liquid foundation,  but always something in terms of a true base.  The other day, I realized my skin was looking pretty good. I applied the Makeup Revolution Concealer to the center of my face, under my eyes, and to any dark areas of my face. I simply dotted a few dots straight from the included wand, then blended the product out using my Sedona Lace 312 Brush

To my surprise, I just needed a touch of setting powder over the concealer, and I felt totally confident and ready to take on the day! 

I highly recommend this concealer. My cousin and I both love it. We bet you will too! For $7, what do you have to lose?

They sell this gem of a concealer at ULTA. It comes in a number of colors, so pick one up to use as a concealer, and a darker shade for contour.
