Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer

Makeup Revolution are smashing it when it comes to their dupe products and so it’s no surprise to see so many people talking about their latest release the Conceal and Define Concealer; the highly anticipated dupe for Tarte’s Shape Tape Concealer.

Tarte stepped up the game of under eye concealer with their Shape Tape concealer but at £22 it can be hard to part ways with the cash, especially if you’re feeling a little pinched. So thank the heavens for Makeup Revolution and their high quality, affordable, much loved products for bringing us another affordable dupe with the Conceal and Define Concealer.

The Conceal and Define Concealer comes in 18 different shades with C1 being the lightest and C18 the darkest, at my local super drug C1 had unfortunately sold out so instead I picked up C2 the second lightest in the range. C2 has a yellow undertone to it making it great for medium and warmer skin tones, I’d say I’m a medium skin tone as I can wear both pink and yellow undertones, but I tend to stick to pink in the winter/cooler months and yellow in the summer/warmer months. The concealer come’s in a transparent plastic tube with a rose gold lid and large doe foot applicator, and is the perfect size for travelling with.

This concealer is ‘FULL’ coverage, and I mean full! I normally stay away from full coverage foundations opting for my lightweight bases instead, but a full coverage under eye concealer is something I can get into. I suffer with dark circles so anything that may cover that darkness is something I’m willing to try. The Conceal and Define Concealer is thick, creamy, pigmented and blend-able, instantly brightening my under eyes, without looking dry or cakey which is is an issue I struggle to avoid with drier formulations of under-eye concealers. My first impression of the concealer wasn’t very good, I don’t know if it’s because I quickly applied it over existing makeup using my finger or what but the concealer separated under my eye’s leaving big looking cracks and clumps of product, it made my under eyes look dry and powdery and it really didn’t look very nice. The next morning I decided to give it the benefit of the doubt and switched out my usual under eye concealer and rather than use my finger to blend it in I used a damp real techniques sponge instead. The difference in the results was almost instant, it didn’t look dry, cakey or powdery, I checked again while at work (because I certainly didn’t want to be walking around looking like I had the previous day) and still looked good, I was over the moon when I got home after my shift to see my under eyes still looked bright with no dryness or caking over the over hours I had been out. I honestly have no idea what happened that first time I applied it but I have been using this concealer everyday since with absolutely no problems, just falling more and more in love with it.

    I haven’t tried the concealer yet, hoping to get my hands on it asap though as I’m trying to update my makeup routine. I’m glad you included the part about the damp real techniques sponge as sometimes that really does make a difference. Thanks for sharing xx

      Sometimes it takes a little playing with the application or base products you’ve used to find what makes a product work best, I’m glad I decided to give it another try and managed to get it to work for me. Thanks for reading Hannah xx

    Great post! I haven’t tried this yet but I definitely need to, its £2+ less than my current concealer, which isn’t a lot but I mean it all adds up haha

    You gave such a great and detailed review of this concealer. Most people tend to love this concealer, and I’ve been dying to get my hands on it! The only thing I heard that’s a negative is the fact that it dries quickly, so you have to blend it out quickly and the fact that there’s not much product in the bottle. Do you agree with these things? Great post Emma xxx

      Hi Melina, it is quite a dry formula compared to my other much loved Garnier Under Eye Concealer and blends much better using a damp sponge than a brush or your finger. You get 3.4ml for £4 for comparison here’s another drugstore fave the Collection lasting perfection concealer which is £4.19 for 6.5ml. I hope this helps. xx
