Revlon Age Defying Spa Concealer product review

Revlon Age Defying Spa Concealer product review

This age defying concealer is a miracle! I have huge problems with under eye bags and circles and while I have tried a lot of concealers none have had the same amazing results and staying power as this does.

What I have learnt when it comes to under eye concealers is you don’t want to use anything to thick so cream concealers are out as they are more prone to caking and settling into fine lines and wrinkles(which is the last thing any woman of any age wants!). You also don’t want anything to sheer as this won’t effectively conceal what you are trying to disguise.

This is what the website says about Revlon Age Defying Spa Concealer

Instantly revitalizes and brightens. Protects against fine lines.
  • Stone Therapy minerals instantly energize stressed skin
  • Vitamin C fusion brightens
  • Antioxidants help strengthen skin’s natural defence system
This is what the Australian Revlon website says
  • Brightens skin as it conceals dark circles and imperfections
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Available in 3 shades
I found it odd that both websites say something different but there you go!

The shades available
  •  001 Light
  • 002 Light/Medium
  • 003 Medium
My personal shade is 003 Medium which I found quite surprising as I’m quite fair skinned but I found light medium just made the inner corner of my eyes look grey/ashy(it is recommended you do not go more than half a shade lighter than your foundation as the ashy effect is common with a too light concealer)

Revlon Age Defying Spa Concealer comes in a hard plastic tubular thingy(I’m sorry I really don’t know how to describe it but here is another picture)
When you take off the lid there is a brush which is where the product comes out of when you twist the bottom of the tube. The brush can’t really be used to blend the concealer but you can brush the product on with the brush (if I’m using it to cover a pimple I use a cotton tip so as not to contaminate the brush)
It is a liquid formulation and while it is not thick and heavy it isn’t thin and runny either which is my opinion is great on both sides of the fence!

It has great coverage and doesn’t cake around the eye area or settle into fine lines and wrinkles and doesn’t seem to “crease” which makes us all look older!

It blends easily and lasts all day(make sure you do set it with powder to make it last longer)

It is great for people who have a little or a lot of discolouration, or if you’re just trying to even things out as it has buildable coverage which makes it an every (WO) mans type of concealer

In NZ it retails for approx $28.50(this may vary) for 1.18mL(0.04Fl Oz)
This is my every day go to concealer,it is the best concealer I have used to date and it well worth the price! If I had to give it a star rating it would easily be 9 out of 10!
