Makeup revolution conceal and define review

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!

Get Gucci for less

I’m going to go right ahead and start with a disclaimer, I CAN’T GET YOU GUCCI FOR PENNIES, but I can provide you with pretty similar dupes that’ll save you cash monies, so I’m forgiven right?

Leather belt with Double G buckle
sigh. Here she is

If you didn’t know what I meant by that Gucci belt I applaud your obvious skills at staying off of instagram and managing to avoid it because i know i have seen it absolutely everywhere! If you have read my previous posts you will know that I absolutely love a small price tag, but i also love the look of a big label, so i made it my personal quest to deliver you with the goods, the dupes, the oh so similar its almost Gucci if you squint.

So number one on my fucci list (laughed way longer than I should have there, fucci…fake gucci? get it?) is this little cutie from asos, and at 12 pound is an absolute steal.  You can get this belt here.

Numero dos is so pretty and is just as cheap at 14 pounds, it just shows you don’t need to break the bank to stay in style and look good. It also comes in about four other colours which I’m having to stop myself from getting them all. This one is from River Island and you can buy it here

Number 3 may not be as good of a dupe as the previous two, but it’s still similar and totally affordable and cute. This one is from h&m and is priced at just 7.99! You can buy it here

Number four on my list is this gorgeous miss selfridge belt, I am in love with the colour of this I think it’s perfect for winter. This belt is in the sale for 7 pounds down from 10 so hurry before its gone! Snap this one up here

Five is a bit different, a bit smaller but a totally different colour which will make any outfit pop, again its super affordable at 12 pounds and is from next. You can get this cutie here 

Pink Velvet Belt

Number is six is going back to River Island who are on point this season when it comes to accessories! Again at just 12 pound! grab it here

Lucky number seven, I fully believe every member of your girl gang should own this belt, it’s so sweet and wearable! It is a miss pap number and comes it at 7 pounds, get it here
