I have done two posts on the Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealers; one (here) comparing C1 to lots of other concealers, and another one (here) revealing the two palest shades. I really did try my hardest to love the Conceal and Define Concealer but it’s just so overhyped, and it’s 100% not a dupe for Tarte Shape Tape Concealer even though many have claimed that it is. On me I find the Conceal and Define Concealer to be very aging, and it makes my eyes look so much older than they are and it’s so drying too. When Revolution announced the launch of their Makeup Revolution Fast Base Concealer, I wasn’t sure if I should try it seeing as I hated the Fast Base Foundation but I’d read some positive reviews from those with dry skin so I decided to give it a whirl.
“Highlight, brighten and banish undereye circles fast. Quickly perfect and cover dark circles by simply placing a few dots (a little goes a long way), of the concealer under the eye with the small cushion applicator. Gently blend out the product with your fingers, a brush or a sponge for instant radiant eyes. The perfect undereye concealer with medium, buildable coverage.
Twist and fix on the go and master your base in minutes by applying Revolution Fast Base Foundation first, before adding concealer. We recommend using this product for undereye concerns, however you can use it anywhere.“
The Makeup Revolution Fast Base Concealer is £5 for 4.5ml which isn’t very much, with the Conceal and Define Concealer containing only 3.4ml and costing £4. It’s really disappointing that Revolution offer the smallest amount of concealer within the drugstore. They have launched a ‘super size’ of the concealer but that doesn’t sit right with me. They should offer the larger size as their only size instead of almost half the product of the likes of Barry M, Maybelline, Collection and Revlon. However this review is all about the Makeup Revolution Fast Base Concealer…
The concealer has a rounded fluffy applicator similar to the Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer, and you have to twist the nude coloured plastic base, which then dispenses concealer within the applicator which you can then apply directly to the skin. I have to say I am quite the germaphobe so I don’t like putting applicators directly onto the skin, especially for concealers as it spreads bacteria which isn’t ideal for concealing blemishes. I personally prefer to apply concealer to the back of my hand and then apply with my fingertips or a blending sponge.
I have the shade C0.5 which is the palest they have, and Revolution created it for ‘fair skin tones with pink undertone’ and it suits my skintone perfectly. I have super pale skin with a strong cool undertone, and this shade is very pink making it a spot on match – you can’t even seen the blended concealer in my swatch above as it’s such a great shade match. The Makeup Revolution Fast Base Concealer has sheer coverage which is why it works so well under my eyes, and the formula is almost identical to the Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer too. It’s sheer enough that it looks natural under my eyes, but it doesn’t crease or cling to fine lines like Conceal and Define did.
I think this is definitely better suited to those with drier skin, or ageing skin as it’s considerably more forgiving on the under eye area, and I’m so glad Revolution have finally created a concealer I like. The only foundation I like that they’ve done are the Revolution Pro Foundation Drops, and this concealer works nicely with the drops too, especially on my dry skin.
