Hey guys! Look at me go with another single-product review. If you guys haven’t heard of the Conceal & Define concealer by Makeup Revolution then I’m pretty sure that you’ve been living under a rock this past month. I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned my feelings towards concealer – I remember buying the Witch (is that brand even around anymore? I haven’t seen it) concealer as one of my first bits of makeup because I was so worried about all of the huge spots I had and we weren’t allowed to wear foundation in school. It was a stick one and I obviously had no idea what makeup was all about so when I scraped it on, I was really confused when nothing happened or it came off some hours later. Since then, I’ve tried other brands but I’ve never found one that I’ve found did what I wanted or made it into my everyday makeup routine.
Obviously, I’ve seen people talk wonders about Tarte’s Shape Tape and while I really wanted to try it because it has had such good reviews, I just have never seen the need to go out of my way to buy a concealer – so I certainly wouldn’t for that amount of money. Then I received the email from TAM Beauty all about this new concealer and I asked you guys on Twitter whether you would be interested in me reviewing it and voila! Here we are.
For those of you that don’t know, my skin type is extremely oily and I also do have dark circles. I have the occasional spot so I would more likely use concealer for my dark circles and for that – so a few swipes of the product underneath my eyes and on the problem areas after foundation. When I first put this on, I’d had my foundation on for a few hours which was a mistake-a to make-a. It went so creasy and dry and gross it looked awful.
So, I tried again the next day on fresh foundation and wow. The consistency is so thick and full coverage that a little bit goes a long, long way. I ended up having to blend it all over my lid as well which ended up acting like a good primer in the end for my eyeshadow. I really liked the way that it looked and I currently have a big spot on my chin at the moment that it concealed. It also dried down really nicely – but I was sure to powder it still as I don’t think there’s any concealer you can get away without setting it.
The actual doe-foot itself is exactly the same as Shape Tape. I’ve seen a lot of people say that this is a dupe for it and I have to agree from what I’ve seen on Youtube of the famous concealer. It’s thick, full coverage, lasts a long time and is really easy to apply and blend. I would be interested in trying Shape Tape just to compare so *winks at Tarte*. I think it’s also really good that they have eighteen different shades that genuinely seem to be quite different but it depends where you buy them from. On Superdrug, they only have fifteen so I don’t know where the others went to.
So, there you are! I really do enjoy this concealer and I would recommend anyone to try it – even if you aren’t a fan of concealer. If there are any other products you would be interested in me reviewing then please let me know in the comments below.
