Hello Senoritas!! How are you all? I hope all well and in the best of health and wealth.
Last week, given the GOSF, most of us went on a crazy shopping spree, and suddenly, IMBB and our very own Madam Gupshup, was flooded with the infectious mood of the festival. Astonishing, that we all were sitting at our respective homes, in different cities, and yet our love for makeup and beauty had us all celebrating, laughing and sharing deals and our crazy shopping together, that day. Special mention; ahem, ahem, I, of course, and Somya, and Priyaa. All three of us literally went on a crazy shopping spree, that anyone who had witnessed our GOSF 2014 forum, can vouch for. The review of the day is the Makeup Revolution Cover and Conceal Palette in shade “Light to Medium.”
Makeup Revolution Cover and Conceal Palette, comes in a rectangular, black colored cardboard box, which opens to reveal a sleek and glossy palette within. The packaging is very elegant and stylish, the only problem is, given that it is so glossy, it is prone to fingerprints which smear all over when you use the palette or even hold it. It contains an in-built mirror. I love the way it looks. It is a budget brand, but they have not given us cheap or flimsy packaging. It is sturdy, good looking and travel friendly. Take a look:
Rs. 1200/- I got this for 600, including COD charges. Given the quality, it is even worth 1200. 😀
My Experience with Makeup Revolution Cover and Conceal Palette:
It would be suffice to say, that this is by far the best concealer that I have used, and trust me, I have used many, if not all.
Shades: All the shades are perfect for concealing, highlighting and natural shade of bronzing even. This palette, specially has shades which have perfect tones for Indian complexion. You can mix and match the shades too. Just amazing!
Texture: These are the creamiest concealers that I have come across. I have used the Colorbar ones and Lakme ones, and then telling you this. It is dreamy creamy, and spreads so evenly that you won’t even need to set with a powder, though do that on a precautionary basis. In spite of the creamy texture, it does not make the skin oily at all!! That means, when you apply, due to the creaminess, it will not cling to dry patches or make you uncomfortable. Also, it won’t make your skin oily. It will just apply like a second skin.
Application: I apply my concealers with brush, though I tried to apply this with fingers too. It works fine with both the methods of application.
Coverage: To be honest, I don’t have dark circles, just a bit of natural darkness below the eye area. However, courtesy my oily skin, I do have a bit of freckles and acne marks here and there. It covered them completely. So much so, that a simple bb cream, and this concealer gave my skin a luminous and clear, natural finish. Though I would say, that on layering it up, it will cover heavy dark circles too. The coverage is medium to heavy, depending upon the quantity you use.
Longevity: It stayed on me, without creasing or fading, for a whole day out, and that speaks a lot, for a concealer that comes at such an affordable price.
Pros of Makeup Revolution Cover and Conceal Palette:

Cons of Makeup Revolution Cover and Conceal Palette:

IMBB Rating and Recommendation:
5/5. No qualms about buying this one. I am head over heels in love with this one. Hell, yeah! I will recommend and though this one is going to last me for quite some time, I shall repurchase as soon as I get my hands on another one.
