This is my holy grail concealer.
I have the shade medium. Thick consistency. Comes in a glossy tube packaging.
Gives high coverage.
Lasts super long.
Blends so easily with the full coverage intact. I usually just put this on and set it with my compact.
I use this everyday to cover my dark circles plus acne marks. It lasts me all day to give my skin the flawless look. Love it.
The concealer comes in a extremely travel friendly packaging. It is a transparent colour container with a black cap. It has a sponge applicator. I purchased the concealer in shade 04, which is good match for my skin tone. It comes in just 2 more shades, one for Fair(03) and one for Deep(06) . The 04 is for medium skin tones. All these shades would suit the yellow toned skins only. So there is a lack of shade preference.
It is a creamy and quite easy to blend. I apply it under my eye and on the blemishes using the sponge tip and I find that quite convenient. It is quite dry so if used without proper prepping of your face or under eyes, it would crease and would look cakey!!Pros:
Nice sponge applicator
Creamy and easy to blend
It is drying so primer is a MUST!
Stays on for 6-7 hours
Coverage is not good enough for dark blemishes/marks
Creases under the eyes
Looks cakey on the blemishes if primer isn’t used
Might look cakey if layered
Coming to its concealing powers: Its coverage is a little less than the Loreal true Match Concealer. If I do not use an under eye cream, it creases a lot. It’s not as good in concealing my blemishes in terms of coverage. If I do not use a primer, it looks cakey after a while. However, it is quite long lasting. It stays for good 6-7 hours on the skin.
Revlon tries to keep it smarter than Lakme by trying to keep both sides of the game. How else could you explain the shade light-medium? And cummon only 2 shades! *eye roll* this shade is for very light to light complexions and sadly just like Lakme has a yellow undertone which fails to do much for me. Even if it does conceal better it gives me yellow spots grrrr…
The coverage is medium-buildable (yes I am talking in Revlon lingo lol) but ya its just about ok but can be built up to a decent coverage. The shade is too pale for under eyes of course (guess the other shade still might work) but it does conceal a few zits or blemishes on my face.
The texture is medium thick, creamy but not at all greasy (of course I might not have felt it cause the weather itself is sucking moisture) and is quite easy to apply and blend and requires a tiny amount for each application. Staying power is not an issue at all and plus in this weather it lasts the whole day till removed and does not oxidize.
The Revlon colorstay concealer comes in a regular concealer packaging with a very nice spongy applicator which is easy to carry around and apply but also means a bit unhygienic so its better to smear them on your hand and dab with fingers

I have this in the shade 06 deep and it is the exact shade of my skin. They come in 3 shades in total which is sad but if you can find a shade which suits your skin tone than its worth the money. It covers acne spots, dark circles, pimples etc very well and stays put for a long time. I love this concealer. It comes with a wand applicator which is perfect for spot application and the tube is travel safe as well. It doesn't crease in the under-eye area and blends completely onto my skin giving a flawless face. Worth it and recommended
