Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer | Review & Swatches

Hello everyone!

On the 3rd January 2018 a makeup release rocked the beauty industry. Of course- I am talking about the Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer! There were only a few tubes of concealer left in both of my local stores, which goes to show just how popular this concealer is right now.

The packaging:
The packaging of the concealer is really nice for an affordable drugstore brand. The tube is very sturdy and the rose gold accents are a nice touch. The concealer contains 3.4ml of product which, although it is affordable, is a little small compared to the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer (6.5ml) which costs only a few pennies more. 

The shades:
There are 18 shades in this range, although I am unsure whether MUR will be releasing any more in the future. I picked up two shades; C4 and C5. They are both fairly light shades but it is hard to tell which shade will be best when you're in store. I find that C4 is nice for highlighting under my eyes and C5 is good for concealing blemishes and other discolouration on the skin. I have included swatches of the two shades alongside two drugstore concealers (and as you will be able to see, one of them is a very similar shade to C4!) and I hope that offers some shade guidance for you:)


My thoughts:
The consistency of this concealer is on the thicker side, similar to the Kat Von D Lock It Concealer, but blends out with ease. I do find that I have to set this concealer really promptly under my eyes as it does have a tendency to crease, as does many other thicker concealers. This is described as a full coverage concealer and I definitely agree with that to some extent. The concealer covers the under eye area beautifully and really brightens it up, although I do need just a little bit extra to cover dark discolouration. I do this with a lot of other concealer, however, so it isn't too much of an issue.

Conclusion:
PROS:
  • Sleek, sturdy packaging
  • Affordable
  • Nice coverage
  • Doefoot applicator for precise application 
  • Easy to blend
CONS:
  • Not a great deal of product 
  • Very hard to get a hold of!
All in all, I am really liking the new Makeup Revolution concealers. I can't comment as to whether they're a dupe to the Tarte Shape Tate as I have never tried that before, but they are going to get a lot of use from me at least!
