I have been a fan of Makeup Revolution for a while, not only do they offer amazing products (often dupes for higher end products) for low prices, but they are cruelty free too. The two highly anticipated launches that were released recently are their Liquid Highlighters and their Conceal and Define concealers, which have been hard to get hold of as a result. I finally managed to get my hands on both (every Superdrug I went to was sold out completely of the concealer so I had to join a wait list online and order quickly before they went out of stock again) and I wanted to give you guys a review of both products to let you know if the hype is deserved.
I wanna talk about the Liquid Highlighter first (I am most excited about the concealer so I want to leave that till last). I got the shade ‘Starlight’ because this shade seemed like the most unique to my collection and that would flatter my skin tone the best. It’s a really beautiful pinky-light gold shade that has a beautiful reflect to it. The formula isn’t too runny that applies to be too sheer, or too thick that is disturbs makeup underneath it and it blends out seamlessly. It dries down quickly and lasts all day, regardless of whether it has been set with a powder highlight or not. I have used this alone or underneath a powder highlight for a more intense glow and like both effects equally. One thing I was worried about was the dropper, when I have tried drugstore options with this packaging I have been disappointing that they don’t work properly, but the dropper in this product works really well. You get a lot of control with how much product you deposit which means you don’t waste any product or are left with a mess on your face or hand. One thing I like about Makeup Revolution is the quality is there for such an affordable price.
I am not sure if these are a dupe for the Iconic Highlighter Drops or the CoverFX ones, they have seemed too expensive for me to justify the price. But these Makeup Revolution Liquid Highlighters seem like a great option for the fraction of the cost. They cost £6 and you get 18ml of product, which is amazing value IMO. There are also 6 other shades available so there should be something out there for every skin tone. They are also versatile too, they can be mixed with foundation or moisturiser for a more glowy finish, applied on the body or just applied to the high points of the face like normal. I love wearing these with my makeup and on no-makeup days just to add a bit of a healthy glow. I definitely recommend giving these a go if you’re a highlighter lover like me. I am usually a powder highlighter girl, but this product has made me not so scared of liquid highlighters.
Now onto the super exciting part, the Conceal and Define Concealers. I know a lot of people have been wanting to get their hands on these, I get the impression that every Superdrug aisles have been raided of this product. I tried 3 different stores before I resorting in joining the online wait list and frantically ordering it before it went out of stock again (definitely recommend doing that if you want to get your hands on it, I only had to wait a day before it came back in stock). There are a few reasons why this product is so sought after. It is apparently a dupe for Tarte Shape Tape, which is very coveted but hard to get hold of in the UK and is super inexpensive for a full coverage concealer. Also, there is an amazing 18 shades available (with more being added soon) which means that no one is left out of this launch.
I ordered the shade C1, which of course, is the lightest shade and is suitable for neutral undertones. This shade is an amazing match for me, I can use it on my face and under my eyes which adds a slight brightness, which I love. I like the size of the doe foot applicator because it means you can apply a lot of product in minimal time. I think the applicator is what has made people compare this product to Shape Tape. It claims to be full coverage, but I would say this is medium-full, but can be built up. One thing I found is that it dries down quickly, which is good because once it is set, it lasts all day. It just means you have to apply it in sections, which isn’t really a big deal. This didn’t really crease on me either, which I don’t think has ever happened to me with a concealer before. It also doesn’t look drying on my skin, which can be the case with concealers with more intense coverage, which is another amazing plus point for me. It blends out like a dream, it is so quick and easy and just melts into my skin.
You only get 3.4ml of product but you don’t need a lot since the coverage is so intense so I would say this would still last you a long time. Plus its only £4 which means it isn’t expensive to replace. This product is definitely worth the hype and it makes total sense why it is out of stock everywhere, it’s the best concealer I have tried in a long time – high-end or drugstore. It’s definitely up there with my UD Naked Concealer, which is my all time fave. It’s amazing to know that I have an inexpensive but amazing concealer for coverage and wear time. I can’t believe the Makeup Revolution Concealer is only £4! If you can get your hands on it, you must!
I definitely recommend both these products from Makeup Revolution, I think they have taken their quality to the next level. It’s amazing that you can get amazing quality products that work so well for such an affordable price. All their products are cruelty free and a lot of them are vegan too (both the liquid highlighter and concealer are) I can’t wait to see what they release in the future, I am especially excited to try their stick foundation that they teased to be launching soon.
