I know, I’m late in the game but I am a very busy person who has very important things to do like rewatch all of buffy the vampire slayer. But better late than never right?!
Makeup revolution, the not so new kid on the block but the one that seems to be knocking it out the park time and time again. So when I saw the reviews of their new concealer I was game, “tarte shape tape dupe” is all I heard and if you’ve ever tried the tarte concealer you will know that is a pretty big claim to make. At a price point about 25 pound cheaper than the shape tape it was looking to be a winner.
I bought it in store in Superdrug and I was SO HYPED to try it out. I have heavy under eye creases so I was hoping it would help me cover them without making it worse.
On first impressions I was underwhelmed, it blended nicely but it was a bit meh, coverage was nice but I wasn’t wowed. Then when I looked closely in the mirror I’m pretty sure I screamed what the fuck. It was horrible. It sat in my creases and made me look about ten years older, it clung to dry areas and made it my skin look awfully textured.
I keep reaching for it and trying it out in various ways and I’m still hating it, I tried to bake it under my eyes and it did not react well with powder. In attempts to get some use out of it attempts were made to prime my eyes but again it looked like I had the skin of a 90 year old.
I would post pictures but I’m too deep into creating the social media illusion that my makeup is always flawless and I have a perfect life so sorry gals!
I personally wouldn’t recommend it and I know things work differently for other people but I don’t really see how concealer can differ that much, I could be wrong though! It’s a shame because I’m so behind the makeup revolution hype and I really wish it had worked for me!
Let me know how you got on with it in the comments and any other drug store concealer you could recommend that may save me a few pennies!
