Revolution are forever launching new concealers and I have to be honest, I’ve not found one I’ve loved. So when the Revolution Conceal & Define Infinite Longwear Concealer launched, I didn’t have the highest of hopes but curiosity got the better of me, and I was curious to see how the formula compared to their original Conceal & Define Concealer.
Revolution Conceal & Define Infinite Longwear Concealer
“The ultimate full-coverage, long wear, 60 shade concealer, Conceal & Define Infinite. Our best ever concealer offers 16 hour wear with 20% more pigment and 20% more coverage. The formula has been infused with niacinamide, making it perfect for blemish prone skin with its soothing and anti-inflammatory properties.
Suitable for all skin types, this concealer offers full-coverage whilst remaining crease-proof, cake-less and breathable for a natural second skin finish.
Designed to be multiuse, this product is also perfect for contouring, full face or targeted concealing, thanks to its infamous doe-foot applicator and stretchable formula.” – Revolution
The Revolution Conceal & Define Infinite Longwear Concealer is £6 and contains 5ml. Revolution do offer an ‘XL’ version which contains 9ml and is £9, which is good as you can purchase a larger size offering better value ml to ml if you discover you enjoy the formula. I bought the smaller size to begin with, as I didn’t know if I’d like it.
The Revolution Conceal & Define Infinite Longwear Concealer has a massive shade range. When Revolution first launched their Conceal & Define Concealer they only had 18 shades, but the Revolution Conceal & Define Infinite Longwear Concealer has 60 shades which I believe is the largest shade for a concealer full stop?
Although it’s important to remember the 60 shades are only available in the 5ml version. Revolution only offer 24 shades in their XL size. I totally understand why they’ve done this, as 120 concealers take up a hell of a lot of room on a makeup stand, but it might be annoying if your shade in the normal 5ml version isn’t available in the fuller size.
Revolution obviously make more money on the smaller size as you get less product for your money, but maybe they’ll expand the range of the 9ml size if demand calls for it.
On a whole, the C0.5 shade is my perfect shade in the Revolution concealers. But, and there’s a big but. The C0.5 is different in each concealer formula which is so annoying. You’d think you’d be able to just choose the shade that worked for you in one of their products, and then be able to use that same shade in another formula, but no.
C0.5 in the original Conceal & Define Concealer has a strong cool undertone and leans quite pink – which matches my skin perfectly. The C0.5 in the Revolution Conceal & Define Infinite Longwear Concealer is warm toned.
I will try and update this post with a swatch photo showing you C0.5 in both formulas as it’s crazy that a shade can be completely different, yet is supposedly the same?! You really need to swatch instore to be 100% sure as they differ considerably.
The formula of the Infinite Concealer supposedly contains 20% more pigment and 20% more coverage. However, I can honestly say I don’t notice any difference in the coverage of this concealer compared to the original concealer. The coverage is exactly the same, and I’ve even applied the original on one side of my face, and then the Infinite on the other side, and they look identical in terms of coverage.
In truth, the lack of “more coverage” doesn’t bother me as the original offered decent coverage anyway. Something that makes the Revolution Conceal & Define Infinite Longwear Concealer so much better than the original in my opinion, is the formula.
It’s so, so, so much less drying on the skin. It looks so much more flattering and even feels a little more hydrating – even more than the supposed Conceal & Hydrate Concealer which wasn’t at all hydrating. If you have dry skin, this concealer performs so much better, and I really hope you can see how nice it looks on the skin in the swatches above.
The skin looks dewy even with the full coverage which is rare. So whilst it doesn’t deliver on the better coverage claims, it is still the best concealer Revolution have created to date and I’m so happy to finally have a Revolution concealer I can recommend – if you can find a shade match that is…
