Review: Revlon Photoready Concealer

Product Info from Revlon:
All over face concealer helps erase imperfections and camouflage dark undereye circles
Full yet undetectable coverage
Photochromatic pigments bend, reflect and diffuse light
SPF 20


TIPS from Revlon:
Apply under eyes and over any imperfections or dark spots, blend using fingertips in gently patting motion. Always try to select a concealer shade slightly lighter than skin tone particularly for the under eye area.

RETAIL PRICE: Php 725.00

NET WEIGHT: 0.11 oz / 3.2 grams

SHADES:
Available in 6 shades.
Fair, Light Pale, Light Medium, Medium, Medium Deep, Deep


PROS:
* with SPF 20
Link* inexpensive
* offers medium to full coverage for dark undereye circles, redness and blemishes.
* i only need 2 layers to cover up my dark circles.
* formula is creamy and it doesn't tug my undereyes. It is super easy to blend and looks really natural!
* does not settle into my fine lines (undereyes).
* the lipstick shape makes it easy to apply.
* good staying power. I've used the Light Medium shade on my undereye circles and when I went outdoors and started sweating, I was wonderfully surprised that the concealer didn't fade and cake at all (when set with loose powder).



CONS:
* Similar to other products of the Photoready line this has micro shimmers which may be a CON for some but it does not bother me.



TIPS:
* after applying your facial moisturiser, apply eye cream to hydrate the undereye area.
* After foundation/BB cream application, swipe the concealer starting from the inner corners of your undereyes going outwards. You can also use a concealer brush for hygenic purposes.
* PAT the concealer (using your pinkie finger) until the product blends with your skintone. Using a powder puff with a bit of loose powder, use a "PRESS and ROLL" motion to set concealer. Setting the concealer is a very important step, this prevents the concealer from caking and fading throughout the day.


I RECOMMEND THIS TO:
Anyone who's looking for an easy-to-use concealer that offers good coverage.


OVERALL:
I've had a bad experience with Stick concealers in the past as you can see in my Concealer collection post I currently don't own one. I've tried stick concealers from Palladio and NYC but their dry texture makes it difficult to blend plus it creases during the day and has the tendency to settle into fine lines. But with this concealer, the texture is not that drying, non-cakey and is easy to blend. This is the BEST stick concealer I've tried so far!

Light pale is for NC15-20 while Light medium matches my NC20-25 skintone.

When blended.
It covered my green veins yet still looks natural.


Till next time,

The finish looks lovely! I'm currently using the MAC pro longwear which I did a review on and I'm really enjoying it.. But it's always nice to know what else is out there..

Great review! Thanks so much!

Oh, will probably get this when I go to the mall this week. I'm currently on the hunt for a really good undereye concealer. I'm NC25, so I guess Light/Medium will be perfect for me?

I love the coverage of this concealer! I also love how easy it is to apply but the shimmer finish and the scent kind of threw me off.

Prachi said...
