The Revolution Eye Bright Illuminating Under Eye Concealer launched back in January November and I knew I had to give it a try. I have tried every single concealer Revolution has ever launched since they first started seven years ago.
The only ones I’ve truly liked are the Revolution Conceal & Define Infinite Longwear Concealer and the Revolution Matte Base Concealer. I am so glad I kept trying their different concealers though, as I was able to review them for you (on my second beauty site), but it meant I tried the Revolution Eye Bright Illuminating Under Eye Concealer, and spoiler alert, I love it.
““Tired eyes, THIS is your wakeup call! Makeup Revolution’s Eye Bright Concealer has been specially formulated to target under-eye circles, offering flexible buildable coverage with a max-level hit of vitamin C to actively treat the area as you conceal!
Featuring a fluffy flocked sponge applicator, this brightening concealer can be used to conceal blemishes, redness and seamlessly erase under eye bags for an instantly brightened effect. The smooth, creamy formula blends beautifully for an undetectable finish- no retouch required!“
The Revolution Eye Bright Illuminating Under Eye Concealer is £8 / $10, and is available in fifteen shades, but only eight of those are available from ULTA.
It looks like they launched initially with just eight shades, and the shade range was later extended to fifteen which is obviously much better, and a lot better than many other drugstore concealer brands.
As soon as I saw the Revolution Eye Bright Illuminating Under Eye Concealer, I knew that Revolution had taken “inspiration” from the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away Liquid Concealer.
I actually own the Charlotte Tilbury version (read my review here), so I have been able to test the Revolution Eye Bright Illuminating Under Eye Concealer versus the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away Concealer to see how comparable they are, and if the Revolution version is in fact a dupe.
The packaging is extremely, extremely similar with the identical rose gold metallic casing, and a clear window on the tube, so you can see how much product you have.
You lift the cap off, and the concealer has a white fluffy sponge applicator, which the concealer pushes through, so you can apply directly to the skin.
The first time you use the Revolution Eye Bright Illuminating Under Eye Concealer, you have to twist the base of the pen maybe thirty times to get the concealer to appear in the sponge. Then you only need to twist once or twice each time you use it, depending on the coverage you’re looking for.
I bought the very palest shade of the Revolution Eye Bright Illuminating Under Eye Concealer which is Porcelain, which Revolution describe as being suitable for those with the fairest skin tones with a pink undertone.
That’s a pretty accurate shade description. I have very pale skin, with a strong pink undertone, and hopefully you can see in the above swatches, the ‘blended’ swatch looks almost seamless on the skin.
I’ve tried using both the Revolution version and Charlotte Tilbury version at the same time, using one on one eye, and the other on the other eye, and you cannot tell them apart whatsoever in terms of formula.
The shades differ as Charlotte Tilbury’s lightest shade is Fair 1, and it doesn’t match me unfortunately, but Porcelain from Revolution does. They both have the same lovely, creamy formula which is easy to blend in and around the eye area.
The Revolution Eye Bright Illuminating Under Eye Concealer also dries down to a dewy finish, which is forgiving on the under eye area, especially if you suffer from dryness or lines. I don’t hear many people talking about this concealer, and I don’t know why.
It’s amazing, and for £8, it’s a spot on dupe for the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away Concealer, and the Revolution version is definitely a concealer I’ll repurchase.
