Product Review -- Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Full Coverage Concealer

I'm a pretty big fan of the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer.

It's a full coverage concealer that somehow manages to look natural and not at all cakey or dry under the eyes.

But it is $24, so it's not exactly the most budget-friendly concealer on the market.

That's why I was excited to hear that Makeup Revolution was coming out with their own answer to Shape Tape -- the Conceal and Define Full Coverage Concealer is certainly inspired by Shape Tape, though I don't personally find them to be identical.

The Conceal and Define comes in a plastic bottle with a large doe foot applicator just like Shape Tape.  I will point out that Shape Tape's container is larger, though, offering up 0.338 fluid ounces versus Conceal and Define's 0.14 fluid ounces.

In terms of formula, Conceal and Define has a thinner consistency than Shape Tape. That allows it to have a slightly lighter look and feel, but it also means that it doesn't deliver quite the same coverage as Shape Tape.

With Shape Tape, I need a single dot beneath each eye to cover the entire area. With the Conceal and Define, I typically need three dots to get the same coverage.

But that isn't necessarily a bad thing.

If you find that Shape Tape is a little too heavy for your liking, Conceal and Define is a great alternative. I haven't had any issues with creasing or fading (though I do set it, as I do with every concealer I use), so it lasts pretty much all day.

I find myself reaching for it on days when I'm going for a lighter, more natural makeup look. On days when I'm going for a more flawless look (or I've been up too late the night before binge-watching something on Netflix or Hulu), Shape Tape is still going to be my go-to.

But I certainly can't argue with Conceal and Define's price tag -- it's just $7 at Ulta.

It's also available in 18 shades, so there should be an option for a wide range of skin tones. I purchased the lightest shade, C1, which is described as a fair shade with neutral undertones, and it's a near perfect match my skin tone.
