Why is everyone talking about this concealer?

Makeup Revolution has been looked at as the underdog for far too, long releasing products that are affordable dupes to high-end products but not getting the worldwide recognition it deserves. The release of the full coverage conceal and define concealers not only came at the right time but is the current dupe of all dupes. Tarte Cosmetics shockingly came out with two new foundation lines which were meant to be the popular shape tape concealer formula but in foundation form. (Although it is speculated that it is the same formula only repackaged as a new product, watch Youkeyy video for the real tea).

Unfortunately, Tarte didn’t think things through properly (not surprised really) and released the collection without having a full range of shades available. I am not surprised by this as Tarte has never really been THAT brand that thinks about the inclusiveness of all shades. The same issue happened with the shape tape concealer but I guess this time, the beauty community spoke up with influencer after influencer speaking up against the product and Tarte in general. Anyway, we are not here to talk about Tarte so let’s get back to Makeup Revolution, shall we. 

Makeup Revolution came out with 18 shades of the conceal and define concealers on its first launch; ranging from C1-C18; lightest of the lightest to the darkest or the darkest. It also covers cool and warm undertones. Considering the scale of this company, this first launch is very good in my book.

Let’s talk about the nitty gritty stuff


It comes with a doe foot applicator which is brilliant for application when highlighting and contouring and also for precise application when concealing imperfections. Although the applicator might not be the best if you are a makeup artist, you can still make due by applying the product on to a flat surface before using it on your client. It comes in a robust cylindrical rose gold packaging which looks really good and expensive. I much prefer this type of packaging as opposed to a plastic or skinny tube as it feels easier to grip and you have more control when it comes to application. The name of each product is clearly written at the base of the product, with makeup revolution written on the side. The best part is that you get all this for only £4.00. You can purchase it from Superdrug and TamBeauty

C13 and C12 Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer
I got my hands on C12 and C13 as those two looked liked the best shades I can use to conceal imperfections and also highlight with. Upon swatching the two shades, I noticed that C13 looked a little dark for me to highlight but looked perfect for concealing. C12 looked a bit too light for highlighting, this automatically meant that I will have to mix both shades to get my perfect highlighting shade. I proceeded to share my initial first impression thoughts on Instagram, Adam who is the owner of the Makeup Revolution brand left a surprising but welcoming comment on my post (below). He mentioned that they are currently working on adding 6 more shades… Shocked? I know right. So not only did they come out with 18 shades at the jump but they were working on increasing the shade range almost immediately after the launch.

Are you following me on Instagram?

As at today 22/01/2017, Mr Revolution himself dropped this image on Instagram (below) stating that more shades will be added in March bring the range to 25. Talk about a brand that not only believes in creating affordable, accessible products but also believes in inclusiveness. I see a white and a few in-between shades that make me not only proud but uber excited to be a Revoholic.

Did you know that the Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer is Vegan and Cruelty-Free!

Upon swatching the concealers on my arm, they felt very creamy and a little thick which is great because I am a full coverage girl. If you are an LA pro girl concealer type of person then you will know what I mean when I say it is slightly thicker but creamier than that cult favourite. 

Does it work
I used both concealers to create the look below, the C13 concealer worked well with concealing my dark spots. I mixed both C13 and C12 to create the perfect highlight shade, I let it sit for about 1minute then blended it out with a beauty blender. Let me tell you something… it blended out like a dream, I kid you not. I didn’t have to over-apply the product and it didn’t sink into my fine lines. I set the concealer with the Makeup Revolution Banana powder (both are a match made in heaven) and it created a beautiful airbrushed effect under my eyes.

Final verdict
I think this baby works, it is definitely worth £4.00. The best part is that it is affordable and accessible enough to keep it as a repeat product. This product will be replacing my Mac prolong wear concealer and my LAgirl Pro HD concealer. I am super excited to see what Makeup Revolution has in stock this year and I am fully behind this launch. I will leave you with this exciting image (below).
