Before moving to London I had never heard of Revolution, why? It’s not exactly easy to come by in Ireland. Totally crazy right? This brand is perfect if budget makeup is a must, and the quality isn’t to be sniffed at.
If you’re familiar with Revolution, you’ll know that the collection is pretty extensive and follows key makeup trends. This makes their Cover And Conceal palette a no brainer. This little palette isn’t just a concealer palette, it’s a contouring pallet, I’ll get into why later. The pallet have a range of different shares of cream choose from. Thus, making it the perfect choice for the contour obsessive.
What I like about this palette is how light and compact it is. I was presently surprised when I removed the packaging to see just how light it is. You can pretty much pop this in your handbag and it will hardly add any weight. As this is a cream product, it’s very easy to apply, melts like butter to the touch, ideal for blending. You can apply using your fingers or a brush, the choice is totally up to you.
So yes it light, but how easy is it to work with?
Quite, its easy to build up, doesn’t cake and can be blended easily. For conturing this is really important, this is far more than just a concealer palette but a contouring palette. With eight shades to choose from, it’s perfect all year round, even for the simple night to-day transformation.
So yes, this is a cheap buy, can it stay in place for more than a few hours? If you have oily skin, I would recommend you avoid using this as a contour, as it’s such a light cream it can be used around the eyes to help brighten and widen the area. I was surprised to find that the product does stay in place really well.
What shade did I go for? I went with the light as I am very fair-skinned. It’s such a good match as you can really pin point the shade that works best for you, and even mix with a different shade if you need to. If you’re looking to contour I would recommend going up a shade so you have the darker shades to play with. While if you do have a dark skin tone, you could go down a shade and use a lighter shade as a highlighter which would then extenuate your shading.
For £6.00 you really can’t go wrong. This little boy is not just a concealer in my eye’s but also works as a brilliant contour.
Have you used this before? What do you think of Revolutions as a brand?
