Makeup Revolution – What Worked, What Didn’t

June 19, 2018

Makeup Revolution is not an easy brand to find in Canada. In fact, I believe the second product I’m going to talk about today is available ONLY at ULTA in the states. Therefore these two reviews could either be extremely useful (especially for a makeup junkie like me who would go out of their way, or pay a little extra in shipping for a product that’s hard to get) or totally pointless. But you never know…Makeup Revolution could become more easily accessible in the future. I hope either way you find this post helpful or interesting.

Makeup Revolution Highlighter + Concealer Review

Conceal & Define Full Coverage Conceal & Contour

What a name eh? Despite being a mouthful to say, I really enjoy this concealer! It’s all I’ve worn since my trip to ULTA a couple of months ago. It’s very full coverage (and easy to go overboard). If I apply too much, it can definitely look a bit thick and cake-y. A few dots under the eyes is really all it takes to hide dark circles. Despite being such a thick consistency, it’s still fairly liquid and easy to blend. I prefer to use my fingertips, which helps melt the product into my skin. It doesn’t seem to crease on me, although I ALWAYS set my concealers with a powder to ensure they stay in place.

I really like the large and soft doe foot applicator. The packaging is also rose gold and super beautiful. My only complaint is that there doesn’t seem to be much product inside the tube. I’m already running out and it’s only been two months!

Ps. I hear this is a dupe for Tarte Shape Tape (which is also hard to get in Canada). I haven’t been able to fork out the money for the high-end concealer everyone obsesses over, so unfortunately I can’t comment or compare. What I do know, however, is that this concealer cost less than $10 and does a pretty damn good job!

Unfortunately, this product let me down. It’s a beautiful icy pink that compliments pale skin. It swatches well and I personally like the colour, but it looks far too chunky on my cheekbones. I find it accentuates texture and really doesn’t look very nice. It takes some effort to get the colour to build, and the more I add, the more powdery it appears. As a result, it is the last highlighter I would reach for when putting on a full face of makeup.

The packaging is also a pain!! I bend or break a nail every time I try to open the lid. Perhaps I’m doing it wrong, but I don’t think gaining access to a makeup product should be so difficult.

Have you tried anything from Makeup Revolution?
