If there is one thing that's hard to find, it has to be a GREAT concealer. Mind you I LOVE concealer but, finding a great one is hard. On my quest I have found some good ones and some not so good ones and those are what I'm talking about today.
I have been wearing Revlon's Colorstay under eye concealer for about a month now and I'm almost out already! That seems a tad ridiculous to me. There is hardly any product only 1.1 ml and on top of that it settles into the fine lines making my eyes seem older UGH! I bought it because I LOVE Revlon's colorstay mineral mouse foundation and thought it would work well together but alas it is a FAIL product for me.
Another under eye concealer that is a FAIL for me is Loreal's Visible lift concealer again, this contains the same small amount and does nothing for the fine lines around my eyes. It claims to enhance tone and to minimize lines but, I really don't see a difference after a solid month of using which is why I switched over to the colorstay by Revlon. It is slightly better that the Revlon as far as texture but I prefer the color of the Revlon product.
I think what made me try both of these was the fact that they both contain sunscreen which is important for around the eyes but, neither worked and both made my eyes burn (maybe a result of the sunscreen). These come in those click up wands which I think stink with the exception of Yves St. Laurent's Touche Eclat my all time favorite under eye brightener/concealer.
Revlon gets 2 stars - for color and it really does stay put.
L'oreal gets 2 stars - for smooth texture but, that's about it.
So, if you were considering either of these two products, save your time and money and go with Loreal's True match Super blendable concealer as I mentioned in a previous post. It doesn't contain sunscreen but does a nice job of concealing without looking like it.
If you have a favorite under eye concealer please let me know so I can try it. I'm always on the hunt for a great concealer. If there is a product you would like me to review please leave a comment here and I will get right on it.
