Review: Revlon Age Defying Concealer

After trying a ton of undereye concealers, high end and drugstore, I have come to the conclusion that all concealers will crease and settle under my eyes. So now all I am seeking is a product that covers well and does not make my undereye area drier. Here comes Revlon Age Defying concealer to the rescue.This product is a moisturizing concealer that is meant to "hydrate like an eye cream" since it is the only concealer with Botafirm-infused eye cream complex. It's supposed to hydrate, restore and conceal.

I got this product about a week ago for $8 on sale at Pharma Plus in Canada, during their 30% off sale. It doesn't come in many shades, actually it comes in only four, which sucks. I got "Light" the lightest colour that they had which is quite yellow-toned. The shade works well for me thankfully. It also have SPF 25 which is great. I have tried this all over my face to conceal and it works fine for that too, the colour isn't too obvious on me. Compared to the Revlon Age Defying Spa, which is more of an illuminating concealer, this one is much more moisturizing and creamier too, which is great.

I am in love with the packaging of this, it comes in a compact squeezy tube, you can see the colour of it in the middle. It's has a turn top and pointed tip applicator, very sanitary. You have to be careful not to squeeze out too much because with this a little does a lot and when it spreads on your skin you realize you have more product than you thought.

Here is it poured onto my hand on the left and then blended on the right. The formulation is quite thick, but creamy and liquidy. This is described as a "moisturizing concealer cream" so it does have that cream texture to it, and that's why it conceals so well. It is hydrating too, you can tell the circled area on my hand is a bit more shiny looking, since I have dry skin this is important for me.

And here it is applied to my right eye, left eye on the picture. I have nothing else on my face except for eye cream. What I do is let the product sit and "settle" under my eyes for a moment and then blend it in with my ring finger or with a small concealer brush. You can go back and apply more if needed, this does not cake up.It conceals very well, is hydrating and smooth to apply.

I am loving this concealer. You can tell the red and blueness under my eyes is barely visible and neutralized. Great coverage, without being cakey. It's like a high-quality concealer for a very affordable drugstore price. I think this is the best concealer that I have ever tried! No more of this illuminating nonsense that a lot of drugstore concealers have, this stuff is the real thing, exactly what I want out of an undereye concealer. The true test was when I asked my bf if my eyes looked any different and he said that the one looked like I was punched in the face and the other one looked smooth, success! :)

I liked this concealer so much that I went out and purchased the foundation and finishing powder in this line too, so stay tuned for those reviews coming soon!

Have you tried this concealer? How did you like it?

I do agree that when a guy can tell the difference with makeup, you have achieved success!
Another awesome review! You have convinced me to go get this next time there is a Revlon sale. Maybe something will finally help with the purple in my undereye area.
I am looking forward to your reviews with the other products in the line.

@Junerose - ya great being told you look like you've been punched in the face, he said I should do both sides, it looks obvious just on one eye. Hhaha that's great. Ya I like this product a lot. The foundation (for dry skin) is nice too, review on that soon.

Definitely a great product! Thanks for sharing :) This concealer seems to be the best drugstore one yet. I like how it's also hydrating, which most concealers don't aim for. I gotta pick this one up, pronto!

I love this concealer too! It's really natural and the consistency is amazing because its not too liquidy but not too creamy. I use this under my eyes and on spots and it doesn't dry out my skin :)

Looking forward to the foundation and powder reviews!
