I like the consistency of this product--smooth, creamy, easy to blend--however, even with powder, it never seemed to set and kept creasing HORRIBLY around my eyes. Also, I noticed a burning sensation for a few seconds after applying the product under my eye...it went away and didn't leave any sign of irritation, but still...a little concerning considering my skin isn't all THAT sensitive and I am used to using retinol products...what the HECK is in this to make it feel like it's eating away at my skin!?
I SO wanted this to be my new HG concealer for my dark circles! I bought it because it's affordable, is a Paula Begoun Best Pick, and it's fragrance-free with nice ingredients like ceramides, vitamin E, and acerola fruit. But like other reviewers have noted, it badly caked and creased under my eyes. It looked awful, actually. I wish Revlon would make the formula smoother and package this in a click-pen wand applicator. Back to Maybelline Dream Touch Lumi.....
this is my favorite concealer!!! it gives enough coverage for my horrendous undereye dark circles but doesn't crease! it's very creamy and my under eye area feels moisturized. this concealer also has a great staying power, and i'm in love with the price! i got this when it was on sale at $6.
This is rated best by Paula Begoun, so I purchased it hoping to find a new moisturizing concealer that would also help my undereye area. I got this in Light (the lightest shade) and although it did conceal -- it left my eye area dry-looking. I use Maybelline Instant Age Rewind and that is the same type of consistency and leaves my eye area very moisturized all day. This Revlon stuff doesn't even last me one hour of moisture. Granted, I have dry skin, so maybe this would be better for oily skin. So, I'm taking it back as a fail for me. But it does conceal -- it's just not for me.
I really love this concealer. I've been on the hunt to find one that doesn't settle into my creases but isn't mask like. I'm 49, have a few lines and bad circles, with very light skin. I tried Mac long wear - mask like,Laura Mercier - hard to blend & settled, Hard Candy- settled, Cover Girl / Olay- settled, Mabyellene Lumi - liked this but kinda mask like. This Revlon is so nice. It has a doe foot, but I just wipe some product on the back of my hand and use a concealer brush. It sinks into my skin and doesn't lay on top. So it melts into my under eye circles. Coverage is great! And no settling into lines. And it was from the Drugstore! I may have just found my HG. I put it on top of a bit of moisturizer and sunscreen. And it still absorbs nicely. Lasts all day. Very Happy!
Something is just not right about this concealer... The coverage is actually quite good, but it looks really really cakey, on blemishes and under the eyes. The consistency is very thick and very hard to blend. I'd say it's very pigmented, but overall I hated this concealer. Would not recommend it.
I think it's super blendable, not drying at all. I have combination skin, oily in the center of my face from forehead down to chin, but can get flakey around the nose which is really annoying. i would use it undereye, on the lines by my nose and to cover blemishes. It does not accentuate the dry patches around my nose. But it can crease in the fine lines under my eyes a little bit. I always check after i'm done with my entire face so i'll just blend that again and it'll be gone. It has a kindda dewy finish. It's not surprising given it's marketed for anti-aging. I haven't used it with a matte foundation yet so don't know if it will look wierd. It's not super longlasting.
I did not enjoy this concealer. I liked the applicator and the slim packaging however the product did not work for me.
I only really need concealer under my eyes and while this did help cover up my bags reasonably well it was just very drying under my eyes. At the same time the most disappointing part is considering this is an anti-aging concealer it settled into my fine creases very badly even with a limited application. At 20 years old and with very slight creasing I couldn't imagine this very useful for someone seeking anti-aging properties.
I wouldn't consider repurchasing and did not finish the concealer before throwing out.
I want a concealer that will cover the blueish veins under my eyes, brighten the dark corner where my eye meets my nose (whoa - that didn't used to be there!), and also cover any veins that show thru my eyelids, all while looking natural. Tall order, I know. I have tried most of the drugstore brands "brightening" or "color stay" products over the past couple years. They, along with spendy Lancome and Jane Iredale concealers, all resulted in the same cakey, crepey look that we're all trying to avoid. DNA Advantage from Revlon meets all my needs and does not settle into the lines or cake up, even on my sometimes flaky skin. It has a thinner consistency than some competitors, which I think helps it sink into skin instead of sitting on top. Maybe it's not as highly pigmented as the expensive brands, but I think I prefer that for an under/around eye concealer. I've been using it for a couple months and am not finding any fault with it yet - might be a new record for me!
I've always had good experiencies with Revlon concealers, but not this time. I really like their ColorStay and PhotoReady concealers, those are great, and I did like the now discontinued Age Defying SPA with the click-pen applicator, which I think it's been replaced with this Age Defying DNA Advantage, and sadly it doesn't perform as great as its ancestor. This new version tends to settle horribly into my pores and fine lines under my eyes. Also, I've noticed that it makes my eyeliners smear throughout the day, giving me almost the panda-eyes look, not cute. I know the smudges are caused by this because I've been testing it with different techniques and making comparisons with other concealers. On top of that, it creases and looks cakey after a few hours of application. I'm giving this away.
