The new Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Full Coverage Concealer really couldn’t have been released at a better time. With all the drama surrounding the Tarte Shape Tape foundation release (if you don’t know what I’m talking about, Google it, there are tons of videos and articles) people were looking for a replacement of their beloved Tarte Shape Tape concealer. It seems that Makeup Revolution is the answer…
Now I was waiting for this product to come out in stores. Typically I like to shop for face products, like foundation and concealer, in person. When I’m trying to match something to my skin tone and shade I hate trying to guess online. Well this product was so popular even when it was released in store it was always out of stock.
I was finally able to pick up the concealer in the two shades I thought would be my best bet, I picked the shades C1 and C2.
The shade C2 is the perfect shade to conceal spots on face with, its an almost perfect match to my skin. I’ve used this a few times as a spot concealer and it does a great job. Covers well and blends easily. To highlight with I use shade C1. Now C1 is the lightest shade so if you are paler than me, then you will have trouble finding a highlight shade. I think there could easily be one or two shades lighter than C1.
The biggest difference between this concealer and the Tarte Shape Tape is the amount of product you get. The Makeup Revolution concealer is 0.11 fl oz and the Tarte Shape Tape is 0.33 fl oz. There is three times the amount of product in the Shape Tape. But even if you did buy three of the Makeup Revolution concealers you would still save $6 and if you used a coupon or bought them on sale then you could get even more for the same cost. So even with the size discrepancy I think its still worth it.
The applicators for both concealers are very similar both are large doe-foot applicators. I wear the shade fair neutral in Tarte Shape Tape. As you can see in the comparison swatch they are close, Shape Tape is the teeniest bit more yellow. They have a similar consistency but the Shape Tape is a bit thicker.
As you can see in the photos I don’t really have bags or too much darkness to conceal, but I do need a little bit of brightness in the area. The Shape Tape felt heavier when it was applied, the Makeup Revolution felt like nothing on the skin. They both blended out seamlessly.
I do believe the Shape Tape is a bit more full coverage so if you have bags or hereditary darkness to cover, then Shape Tape might be your best bet. But if you don’t have a lot to conceal and you really just need the brightness then I think the Makeup Revolution would be a great option.
I love both concealers. I have used Shape Tape for years and never found a drugstore dupe for it. I’m so glad that I have one now. I need to branch out of my comfort zone with concealers, I always use the same ones and rarely try something new. Which ones are your favorites?
