Makeup Revolution vs Colourpop Concealers

Hey Beauties!

 

Concealers is something I can never have too much of. Whether it’s medium to full coverage (which is my preference) or even light coverage (as I can mix it with other concealers) I don’t mind trying them all.

I decided to give these two concealers a go especially as both have been talked about.

 

 

Colourpop No Filter Concealer (Medium Dark 34)

As per the website:

Instantly conceal, cover, correct and contour with this long wearing, full coverage natural matte concealer. The lightweight blendable formula applies smoothly and seamlessly covers dark circles, blemishes, redness and discoloration with one swipe. The 100% cruelty-free, vegan formula is made with soft blurring pigment technology delivers a flawless complexion that lasts all day.

Finish Matte

TIPS: To cover blemishes and uneven skin tone, choose a shade that closely matches your skin.
To brighten under eyes or highlight, choose a shade that is 1-2 shades lighter than your skin.
Blend with a sponge, brush, or finger tips, whatever you prefer! Set with No Filter Loose Setting Powder or No Filter Sheer Matte Pressed Powder.

My Experience:

I purchased mine from the Colourpop website and picking shades online can be tricky. I chose a shade similar to my skin tone as I’m not into that super light, bright under eye look. If I do need to brighten up my under eyes I will use a brightening powder or a banana powder. Although I could have gone a shade lighter, this still works.

The packaging is standard with a flat doe foot applicator which I don’t mind.
It dispersed enough product on my skin without dipping the wand into product ten times which is annoying with small applicators.
The best way to describe the formula is that it’s flexible and once it’s applied onto the skin it sticks to the skin and dries a bit quicker than other concealers. I hope that makes sense. I find that with a lot of other concealers as I’m blending it out a lot of the product is soaked in by the sponge, becomes a bit more sheer or spreads and moves around with a brush. This sticks and stays to the area where I’ve applied it, my sponge does not soak up a lot of this product and it remains full coverage yet seamless.
I wore this all day and it lasted very well, no creasing or fading and it remained full coverage throughout the day.
Definitely impressed with this formula and how inexpensive it is. Even though it’s matte, it did not appear drying or full under my eyes.

 

I would recommend this concealer.

Contains 4.0 g/ 0.14 Oz. Available in 30 shades.
Vegan and cruelty free.

 

 

Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define (C11)

As per the website:

The concealer for everyone. 25 shades ranging from fair to deep, in cool, neutral and warm undertones. Lightweight yet full coverage concealer to cover blemishes, even skin tone and counteract dark circles, with a matte finish that won’t settle or accentuate fine lines and pores. Long wearing intense pigment that can also be used to contour and add definition. Our large doe foot applicator allows for smooth application that won’t drag on the delicate skin under your eyes.

How to use:

Apply a few dots under your eyes and blend out using a synthetic brush or damp blending sponge under blended and flawless. Apply 1 dot to blemishes or dark spots and blend with finger, brush or sponge, building up if necessary. To contour dot a shade 2-3 shades darker than your complexion around the perimeters of your face, in the hollows of your cheekbones and anywhere you wish to give extra definition, and blend out with a synthetic brush or sponge. For added staying power, finish with a setting powder and fixing spray to lock your flawless finish in place all day.

 

My Experience:

I was so excited when Makeup Revolution launched in SA. I didn’t go immediately to purchase, I waited about a week or two after the launch to go purchase some products. I do however want to go back once the shelves have been stocked up a bit more.
Thankfully I found this concealer which was on my list to purchase. I love the packaging and fat doe foot applicator which makes it so quick and easy to use. Literally one swipe per under eye and the application is complete. It is medium to full coverage and it blends out very fast. In comparison to the Colourpop the sponge soaks up more product but my under eyes are still concealed.
It lasts the entire day and does not crease or fade. I find this a great concealer to bake with as well as cream contouring. The formula is thick but not matte.

 

 

I would recommend this concealer.

Contains 4g/ 0.14 oz of product. Available in 25 shades.
Cruelty free. Vegan.
