Makeup Revolution Corrector Review (green)

Makeup Revolution Corrector: swatches, opinion and pretty pictures.

The Revolution Makeup concealer has been all the rage online for the past few months, with a lot of people claiming it’s a (near) dupe for Tarte’s Shape Tape. In my quest to find the best concealer in the world, I bought three shades and wrote a review, which, apparently was very different from the general opinion.

So, the other day I was high on Xanax and lurking on revolutionbeauty.com, as I do at least once a week and I noticed that they had expanded their concealer range. To be more accurate, they have released a range of three correctors: an orange one for dark circles and dark spots, a banana one for brightening and evening skin tone, and a green one to neutralise redness. This is the one I am going to review today.

Where to find it: here

Price: €4.99

Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Cyclopentasiloxane, Isododecane, Phenyl Trimethicone, Dimethicone, Butylene Glycol, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Cetyl PEG-PPG–10/1 Dimethicone, Isobutylmethacrylate/Bis-Hydroxypropyl Dimethicone Acrylate, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Silica, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Sodium Chloride, Phenoxyethanol, Quaternium-90 Bentonite, Triethylhexanoin, Propylene Carbonate, Tocopheryl acetate, Lecithin, Polyhydroxysteric acid, Polyglyceryl-4 Isostearate, Hexyl Laurate, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-di-t-butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Isopropyl Myristate, Isostearic acid, Polyglycerol-3 Polyricinoleate, Rosa Rubiginosa (Rosehip) seed Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Camellia sinensis leaf extract [+/-] CI 77891, CI 77492, CI 77491, CI 77499, CI 77288 (yeah, that’s a mouthful).

Claims: neutralises breakouts, redness, rosacea and sunburn, 100% cruelty free, potentially vegan (they say most of their products are vegan, but don’t specify if this one is or isn’t)

Consistency: it’s actually pretty thick and it’s quite similar to their now famous concealer. I would recommend applying a very small quantity because a little goes a long way. As you can see on the picture, I applied a bit too much and had difficulty blending it out. If you are spot correcting or just need coverage on your cheeks, I would advise applying at least half as much as a did.

 

 

Application: it’s exactly the same doe foot applicator as the MUR concealer, so application is easy and pleasant. The product will blend easily provided you haven’t applied too much, as mentioned before. I know I ramble.

Staying power: very good. It dries quite quickly so that you can move on to foundation or BB/CC cream right away. I personally tried it with my 1 2 3 Bourjois CC cream.

Coverage: it does neutralise redness and I really want to insist on the term “neutralise” more than hide. Do not expect miracles. I applied the corrector only on one side of my face to compare with/without and the difference was slightly visible. Unfortunately, it didn’t show on the pictures that I took, so I decided not to upload them.

 

My final thoughts on this Makeup Revolution corrector

Makeup Revolution (or Revolution Makeup, stop changing your name, you guys!) is a brand that I’ve been supporting for a while. I’m glad that they are stepping up their game and gaining so much popularity.

I generally don’t believe that green correctors are game changers when it comes to rosacea. They will help, but they won’t work miracles. Skin care is your best bet when dealing with a skin condition such as rosacea.

I enjoyed this Makeup Revolution corrector much more than their concealers because the skin on my cheeks isn’t as fragile as my under eye area, so it obviously didn’t crease or feel dry.

This particular product is extremely good value and I wouldn’t stop anyone from buying it. As a matter of fact, if you love makeup and are on a budget, I highly recommend giving the brand a try.

 

Do you guys use colour correctors? For what? What brands?

    I enjoyed this … I’d forgotten how good green is for crossing out the redness! I’m a blonde who is prone to redness and I recall having a Virgin Vie green something years ago and it worked a treat. I shall give this a go. Thank you for sharing

    Loved this! I’ve never heard of Makeup Revolution until just a few days ago, but I’m already planning on making a few test purchases from there. I typically use the small NYX palette for color correcting, mostly green because I do have a few red spots.

    I still want to try this concealer, maybe not the color correcting one,I kind of outgrew them lol. But yes to the regular one.

      Sure, give it a try. Most people I know like it! (except me)

    I’ve been thinking about trying this out for a while so I’m really glad I found this post! I agree with the skincare thing- it’s better to work directly on improving the skin when possible, rather than just covering it up (or neutralising it, for that matter)! Sending you good vibes!

      Oh yeah, makeup on bad skin isn’t the best idea. Thanks for commenting. See you around!

    I usually use the Urban Decay one but I might have to give this one a go to save me a bit of money. Thanks for the review!xx

    These seem interesting! I didn’t know they came out with new color correcting shades. I really like NYX color correctors 🙂

        I use the palette, it has 6 shades – yellow, pink, purple, green and two ‘conceal/contour’ shades. The pink is the perfect shade and the green is really good too. Very blendable. It’s pretty inexpensive

        • June 19, 2018 / 8:05 pm

          Great! I should consider that option too!

    I get a bit worried when applying the colours in the rainbow on my face unless it’s on my eyelid because I fear the day I don’t blend it in probably and leave the house looking like the hulk but I do really love Revolution products and I love the idea of the colour correction but I don’t think I could apply this to my face!!

    Love your blog <3

      Once you blend it, it doesn’t look that green anymore lol. I get what you mean, though. I used to have the same fear. Colour correcting is optional anyways, but I guess some people feel the need to conceal more than others. Thanks for commenting. <3
