I purchased this concealer a while back when CVS was running a sale and I also had some Extra Bucks and coupons. I ended up getting it for just pennies, and since I've heard so many good things about this particular concealer, I figured I was long overdue to try it myself:
Revlon Age Defying Spa Concealer in 002 Light Medium
(retail: around $10.99, .04 oz)
The one thing I dislike about concealers that come in a click-pen delivery system is that you just don't get much product for your dollar. For instance, my beloved Maybelline SuperStay concealer (which comes in a standard tube with a wand applicator) is 0.18 oz and retails for around $7.99, whereas the Revlon concealer is 0.04 oz. and retails for around $10.99.
The shade I purchased, 002 Light Medium, appeared to have the most peach in it out of all the shades, so that's why I selected it. If my concealer has too much yellow in it, I find that it makes my under-eye darkness turn into a really odd shade of ashy gray. I need my concealer to have a peach tone to it, otherwise I know it's going to be a disaster.
Unfortunately, when I actually applied this product to my skin, I quickly realized that there was too much yellow in it:
In the "before" picture, I'm wearing absolutely no makeup (I hate "before" pictures!). I apologize for the glare on my skin, but that's just a reflection from my moisturizer. Anyway, as you can see in the "during" picture, there's a lot of yellow in 002 Light Medium. In the "after" pic, you can see that it did a great job of evening out the redness around my eye area (see my lids) but as for the darkness underneath my eyes? It's not concealed and it looks ashy. Therefore, this is one of many concealers I own that I can use on the rest of my face, but just not under my eyes.
As for the texture of this product, I understand now why so many people enjoy it. It's thin, but not watery, and it's very easy to apply--absolutely no tugging or pulling during application. I find that it doesn't settle into my fine lines, and it seems to keep the skin around my eyes hydrated throughout the day, without feeling greasy. I do find it too sheer for my particular needs though, as I found myself having to build a few layers of product when I tried to conceal some old acne scars on my cheek. I couldn't do it with one application. On the upside, once this concealer is on my skin, it seems to last for a good 7-8 hours on my oily skin with the help of a little setting powder (in my case, powder foundation).
FINAL VERDICT: If you have dry skin and you don't have moderate-to-severe under-eye darkness, I think you might love Revlon Age Defying Spa Concealer. It applies and blends with ease, it's got good staying power, and it seems to keep my delicate under-eye area hydrated throughout the day, without feeling oily or greasy. Unfortunately for me, it doesn't conceal my under-eye darkness, and the color is not a good match for my skintone. However, it does conceal redness on other parts of my face, but if you have targeted areas that need more concealing, you'll probably need to build and use multiple layers to do get the job done. I really think this product is best suited to those who have minimal under-eye darkness and need a hydrating under-eye concealer that's not going to settle into fine lines.
