Concealer battle – Charlotte Tilbury v Makeup Revolution, which is the best?

The Charlotte Tilbury – Magic away liquid concealer and the Makeup Revolution conceal and define.

There seems to be so many new concealers coming onto the market recently. I’ve picked up two new ones and have given them a good test run. Which will win the concealer battle?

I love testing out base products, foundations are my favourite part of makeup after eyeliner. I tried both concealers with my everyday foundation and primer, giving them a fair chance.

The Magic away concealer looks lovely, with the classic gold packaging, very high end along with the price at £24. The application is through a sponge, you twist the bottom and the product comes through small holes in the sponge tip. The packaging is similar to the L’Oréal Age rewind concealer but much better quality. At first I wasn’t sure how much product to squeeze out, I didn’t want to waste it at this price. It’s hard to judge how much is on the applicator. It does make for an easy a mess free application. You can dab this on under the eyes or on the face.

The formula is nice, with medium to buildable coverage and seems to dry down quickly. This gives an airbrushed look to the skin.

I normally prefer a cream based ‘pot’ concealer like the Nars or Mac. I found I like the Charlotte tilbury on the face more than under my eyes. I still needed to apply a little Nars concealer onto the corners of my eyes where I have the most darkness. Then I went over the top with the Tilbury to give an overall brightened effect. This lasted all day and looked great.

The Makeup revolution conceal & define priced at £4 is an absolute steal. Again this has medium to full coverage, not as many colour choices as the other but this is often the case with drugstore makeup. The applicator is a large and I mean large doe foot. You can really pack a lot of product on if needed without much faf. The magic away concealer takes a little more finesse.

The formula is thinker than many other cheaper concealers I’ve tried, if you like perfect skin and that Instagram look you will love this. Good for all skin types as it’s not too oily or dry on the skin.

So which one is my favourite?

I like them both for different reasons, but the Charlotte Tilbury magic away concealer just inches ahead. The formula blends into the skin easily, and the packaging is just dreamy. Even if the sponge tip I can tell will get quite gross with continued use. This isn’t a concealer to leave hanging around not used for weeks.

However I would highly recommend both depending on your budget and they do as stated on the tin.

Have you tried either of these, or do you have another concealer which is your absolute favourite, I would love to know in the comments.

Thank you for reading and see you next time.
