Revlon Colourstay Concealer in 02 Pale

Revlon Colourstay Concealer 02 Pale

All medium to full coverage foundation lovers out there will know Revlon Colorstay foundations are among some of the best on the market. While a good foundation starts the coverage process, concealer is always the second product I reach for when applying my makeup. Being such a fan of the Colorstay foundation I decided to give the Colorstay concealer a try.

The Colorstay concealer comes in a 6.2ml durable, almost glass like, plastic tube. There is a  black screw lid, the same as the foundation and a doe applicator. I purchased the shade 02 Pale, which appears to be the lightest available in Ireland and the UK. While I usually like to use a brightening concealer under my eye I find this works well at covering dark circles as the shade is a good match. I also use this on any spots or redness and it does a good job covering them. Usually I’ll apply the product using the applicator and blend out with either my ring finger or Eco-Tools concealer brush. I found on occasion the concealer can crease under the eye if it isn’t blended out fully.

The texture is very creamy and it’s quite a moisturising, non-drying formula, which I really like for my undereye area. As I’ve mentioned I use either one of two methods to apply this concealer. I find that sometimes it is best applied using my ring fingers. The longevity of the product is definitely shortened if it is applied with a brush. Perhaps it’s just my brush but on days I don’t use a brush I notice it lasts a lot longer. Overall the coverage of this concealer just about hits the medium mark. I don’t think it’s as good as my Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, although it isn’t as drying or creamy but it is much, much cheaper.

All in all, I don’t think the Revlon Colorstay Concealer has the same lasting power and coverage as the foundation. That said, when it is applied correctly with care and set with a good matte powder, it looks good on the skin and covers well.

I bought my Revlon Colorstay concealer for €9.99.
