It’s time for a concealer review and I wanted to talk about this little gem that gets a lot of hype and comparison to Tarte shape tape. Y’all know I don’t mess around when it comes to concealer for the under eyes so let’s jump straight in!
What are the claims of this product?
This concealer claims to be light-weight and long-wearing. It promises to counteract dark circles and cover up blemishes as well as adding definition for a smooth matte finish.
Do they deliver?
The concealer is definitely light-weight and quite easy to blend. It doesn’t cake up under the eyes but you definitely need to set it (let’s be real you’re a unique creature if you are able to get away with not setting your concealer). It does cover up dark circles nightly but I always go in with a corrector underneath with all concealers – so I can’t guarantee on its own it can do the trick.
Formula / coverage / Longevity?
It covers quite nicely but I do have other concealers in my collection with way more coverage. I do blend it with a damp beauty blender so that may have to do with it. For spot concealing, I’d say it wouldn’t blow you away if you required heavy-duty coverage for noticeable blemishes. Formula wise, the concealer is quite creamy, slightly thick but blends very easily. It sits under the eyes very well and doesn’t crease much (of course I immediately set my under eye area and I don’t apply too much concealer. The concealer lasts fairly well throughout the day. I don’t notice my under eye area looking like a hot mess, it looks fresh throughout the day and the concealer doesn’t fade or break apart.
Easy to use /How does it apply?
It applies and blends out so easily! I blend it out with a damp beauty blender and it literally blends out in 30 seconds, perfect for a quick and easy makeup look.
Is it similar to the Tarte shape tape concealer?
Aside from the packaging they aren’t very similar. There is a huge difference in coverage at least for me because my dark circles are intense. Also, the Tarte concealer is much thicker and you need to be careful when applying it and blending it. The revolution concealer blends easily in 2 seconds.
There are 50 shades of this concealer!
Small glass tube with a doe foot applicator.
How much does it cost?
Regular size – $8 AUD – The super-size is $14 AUD
How much product do you get?
The regular size is 4 ml but they have also launched this concealer in a super-size (yay!). you get 13 ml in the super-size.
Where to purchase it?
Who might not like this?
If you want bulletproof intense coverage, this may not wow you.
This concealer is awesome! It may not be the best dupe for Tarte shape tape but when measuring it on its own, it’s an awesome concealer! It covers well, feels lovely under the eyes, and is super hydrating. I love how affordable this is because concealer is something I go through quickly and that shade range of theirs deserves a massive round of applause.
Would I recommend this to you / repurchase?
Yes and Yes! It’s definitely one I recommend you try and the good thing is that because of how affordable it is – it isn’t much of a gamble to try it out. When I do repurchase it, I will be picking it up in the super-size.
