Review: Revlon Age Defying Spa Concealer
Instantly revitalizes and brightens. Protects against fine lines."(Revlon website)
* Stone Therapy minerals help energize stressed skin
* Vitamin C fusion brighten
* Antioxidants help strengthen skin’s natural defense systems
I did not find it had any brightening properties in it, there was no noticeable glow or radiance to the concealer at all, pretty flat in colour. As for protecting against fine lines, that would be a pretty spectacular product if it did so that! It is however very lightweight, blends nicely and covers the undereye area pretty well. I haven't used the YSL Touche Eclat myself, but I remember reading comparisons of that concealer with this one.
Here is what the brush looks like, you basically turn/click the cap at the other end and some of the product deposits on the tip. You have to be careful however as you really can't tell when it comes out, or how much. So I usually turn twice and that's it, if I need more, I do another turn afterwards, that way you don't waste any product.
I picked the lightest shade and it's really not that light, a bit more yellow than my skintone. A major con of Revlon's Age Defying Spa Concealer is it only comes in 4 shades! I actually had the same problem with the Revlon Age Defying Spa foundation, in Canada, the lightest shade that we have is light and I really need fair/light (which is sold in the US). I can make this concealer work but, I would prefer it to be lighter, undereye concealer is supposed to be a touch lighter than your skin.
As for concealing, I think it does a pretty good job, as you can tell blended on the right, it has taken away some of the redness in my skin and goes on pretty smooth and opaque. The product blends smoothly and quickly. It lasts pretty well , does not crease or seep into fine lines. For a drugstore concealer, I think it's pretty good.
