I’m a divil for a concealer. I had a Revlon voucher from Boots so I took the opportunity to check out their Colorstay Under Eye Concealer. I used it every day for a week before writing this review – just to give it a fair chance.
My thoughts after a week of testing:
Shade range Not great. There are only 5 shades, ranging from Fair to Medium-deep. The latter is still light. I bought 02 which is a little lighter than my skintone.
Applicator / Application I’m not mad on applicators like this. I would prefer to dab the product on with a doe foot applicator and then use a fluffy brush to blend it in. I feel this applicator doesn’t add enough product or it blobs out. It’s easy to blend into the skin.
Packaging Awful, you’ll never get the entire product out. The lid also got really messy. And I can’t help but wonder how much product is lost in the applicator mechanism.
Would I repurchase? No. That’s not to say others won’t like it, it just didn’t do enough for me. It also creased on me and looked a little cakey.
Would I recommend? I couldn’t after my experience with this product. I’m sure that are plenty of people who like this concealer but unfortunately I’m not one of them. Revlon is expensive in Ireland for a grocery brand (icky term isn’t it) and I can’t help but feel that if you added a few extra euro you could buy something better quality. In the US Revlon is less than half the price so I wouldn’t mind testing their products but I think Irish girls would be wiser to put their money towards something better.
Have you tried this? Any concealer recommendations?
