  • Medium Coverage
  • Natural Matte Finish

There have been a lot of mixed reviews on this concealer because so many people want super full coverage with a matte finish. This is not TAPE SHAPE I repeat this is not TAPE SHAPE and I could not be happier. For all of those that want a full coverage look there are just as many of us that don’t like that look at all or just want a good everyday concealer.  Please remember that when watching Youtubers. Also many are young and this concealer works wonders under my 37 year old mom eyes. lol I  prefer my skin to look like skin with my makeup on. I want to look like myself but better. Less tired and uneven lol If you want full coverage and matte then please try the Pro Longwear Concealer, its fantastic!!! The MAC studio fix concealer is creamy and blends like butter and covers just enough to make you look fabulous! This concealer and NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer are by far my top two concealers of all time. Concealer is so personal, its a preference. From coverage, to shades and finishes it truly depends on the persons needs and wants.

I use to be matched as NC 20 but having the full range of MAC studio fix concealers in my hands I now know I prefer it to blend in and go with NW 25. NC 20 is just too bright for me now and I do not like the way it makes me look. I prefer my concealer to blend seamlessly into my skin tone, be creamy, natural looking with decent coverage and this concealer matches all of my criteria.

Shape Tape Concealer Dupe?!!??: The $7 Concealer You Must Try!

Who doesn’t love concealer? In most recent years I have become concealer obsessed. I love concealers in all shapes and sizes lol. Full coverage, matte, dewy, sheer ect. Nothing beats an affordable concealer that works. Shape Tape Concealer by Tarte Cosmetics was all the rage at one point and still holds a lot of hype. Is it that good? Ehhh I was not too impressed. The formula for me was too thick and drying.  When Makeup Revolution came out with this so called Shape Tape Concealer Dupe the YouTube world went crazy over it I was very intrigued. The concealer is only $7 and holds a lot of the same benefits as shape tape.  In short this is a fantastic concealer at the drugstore for a fraction of the cost of Tarte’s Shape Tape. With full coverage matte creamy finish and easy to blend you can not go wrong.

I wanted to also add in some comparison swatches for you if you are closer to my skin tone. I am typically  Light to Medium with Neutral undertones. I found for this concealer C 7 was the best for me and my personal preferences. In the past I use to go light under my eyes but now I like to use something just slightly lighter than my skin tone or almost a match. It  makes it easy when I am doing concealer only for those fast no makeup, makeup days. MAC I am NC 20 and that is really almost too light but it still works and I tend to mix a lot so that shade works still. I hope this helps if you are looking to buy the Makeup Revolution Concealer!

NEW bareMinerals BarePro: 16-Hour Full Coverage Concealer

I had the pleasure of attending the bareMinerals BarePro Cocktails and Complexions event here in Chicago.  See it HERE.  The focus of the event was their new Bare Pro 16 hour full coverage concealer.  I was able to sit with a bareMinerals Makeup Artist and learn a bit more about the product. I explained natural everyday makeup is more my lane. Some days I just spot conceal with concealer and ditch the foundation all together. She said this is the perfect concealer for that and I will say it has been fabulous.  Products that are versatile and reliable are so important to me and the new bareMinerals BarePro Concealer fits the bill!

Whether you want to cover dark circles, look more awake or to brighten your undereyes, concealer seems to be a constant struggle for most people and I get it! With so many formulas and brands to choose from its hard to know what is right for you. Concealers in my opinion are used for different reasons depending on the person. I have concealers for everyday, events ect however everyday makeup is more what I look for when I am buying makeup. Even though I am not a full coverage or matte type of girl this concealer has been working for me!

bareMineral BarePro

This is a full coverage concealer with a matte finish but its very creamy. You can build it up for the coverage it offers or you can mix it with a very creamy eye cream to give it a natural look. If you are new here I do not like much of anything matte on my face. My skin can tend to get dry and products easily settle into my fine lines. When my makeup is too matte hello old looking dry skin lol. However this concealer again is very creamy so it does not give a super matte appearance under your eyes. I have been using it with my beloved Kiehl’s Creamy Avocado eye cream and it gives this concealer the most hydrating base.

Just as the bareMinerals Makeup Artist said this is the perfect concealer for everyday wear to spot conceal, throw on some mascara, lipgloss and a bit a bronzer and you are ready to go! I place the concealer under my eyes, on my forehead, under my nostrils (I get very red here) and then a bit on my cheeks. It blends nicely and with it being a stick it just makes it easy to apply. I found using a Beauty Blender was the best to blend out and for a more natural finish.

The focus was their new Bare Pro 16 hour full coverage concealer. But of course there is the Gen Nude Blushes and Lip Lacquers! BareMinerals is a brand fast approaching the Holy Grail train for me.

Not just as a beauty blogger but as a beauty consumer.
