Today was a sad day. I had come to the end of my Conceal and Define concealer. Now the question I ask myself is, “do I buy it again?”
It’s taken me a while “umming” and “ahhing” over my feelings about this concealer. I was swept in by the wave of hype that came with the launch of this collection by Revolution. It’s been branded a near perfect dupe for Tarte’s Shape Tape concealer, something I’d never buy with international shipping as much as it is. It helped that I have a friend who gets as excited by quality budget makeup as much as I do. We enable each other.
We headed to our little town’s Superdrug and hunted them out like sniffer dogs at a sausage factory. Then the inevitable happened. They didn’t have our shade. I sighed and accepted my fate. A few days later over a costa, my friend only goes and pulls out the Conceal and Define Concealer in my shade! C3, if you’re wondering.
At first, I was amazed at the full coverage it gave me. A little did go a long way. The applicator is thick, just like Tarte’s. It got rid of my dark circles and highlighted the under eye area.It was like real-life Photoshop. However, towards the end of the day, I noticed that it had sunk in my fine lines and creased. I persisted and tried it with better setting powder and techniques and it became one of my favourites. It’s not my all-time favourite, but it’s up there. For £4.00 exclusively at Superdrug and TAM Beauty, I will definitely be restocking. I can’t wait to try the matching Revolution Fast Base Stick Foundation in F3. I’ll have my hands on it, as soon as my Superdrug have it stock…
