i have SUCH a love/hate relationship with this concealer and it makes me so sad because it has so much potential but the packaging RUINS it. i bought this product because by some divine miracle it was on sale for $AUD6 at myer (usually it's $AUD27) and it's the first concealer i've found for less than $AUD40 that is actually pale enough for me (i'm a 110 in the maybelline fit me poreless range). it definitely won't give you full coverage but i find it great for low-key makeup days. it wears nicely throughout the day, isn't too drying or oily, doesn't really sink into fine lines if you set it with a powder (which you always should) and requires minimal touching up. overall, nice stuff.however. i have literally never experienced a worse applicator in my life. in an ideal world, you would just twist the twisty bit at the bottom and a bit of product would appear on the sponge tip and away you go. now, the more you twist the bottom, the emptier the centre compartment becomes as the concealer is pushed up through the applicator. upon opening, i had to keep on twisting until the middle compartment was HALF EMPTY before any product appeared on the applicator tip, and when it did, it all squirted out at once and went everywhere. i'm going to assume that the remaining half of the concealer is just sitting inside the applicator, and hasn't just disappeared or been stolen by the concealer fairies. for some reason it still takes at least ten twists for any product to appear on the applicator, and when it does, it comes out in one huge squirt and i end up wasting heaps. there's no way to tell when the product is going to come out or how much of it will be released so you're pretty much guaranteed to waste a whole bunch or spend half an hour getting the right amount of product. i hoped i just got a dodgy one-off product but the reviews are all the same!i quite like the concealer itself but the packaging makes me never want to touch this stuff again; the fact that revlon can charge $AUD27 for it is pretty shocking. if you're prepared to spend that sort of money on concealer, you might as well save another $5 and get a MAC one tbh.pros:- suitable for very fair skin- sheer coverage is good for low-key makeup days- wears nicely when set with a powdercons:- literally the stupidest method of application ever - stupid method means you will probably waste a bunch of product- stupid method means it's ridiculously overpriced- honestly i am in such a perpetual state of ???? when trying to apply this

My very favorite concealer because the shade medium matches my skin perfectly. I can wear this concealer and skip foundation as it blends well and does not look patchy on my skin. It does not fade or melt either Once it is dry, I use a bronzer and Viola! My skin can be acne prone with other products but this one has never caused any problems. I am not thrilled by the applicator but it does the job. Highly recommended for oily skin!

I'm a makeup junkie,i love the colourstay foundation i use it over my other high end foundations… its amazing, which is why i expected this concealer to be amazing, i bought the shade fair hoping it would work to conceal and brighten my under eyes, it just didn't. i was expecting great things from this concealer and was extremely disappointed, especially because i love revlon as a brand. this just didn't work for me and i will not be using it over my other concealers .

I have genetic under eye circles - the bad kind - when everyone always says how tired you look and asks if you're ok, despite you having had 10 hours sleep the night before and feel great. ha ha ha yup they're that bad. Otherwise: skin normal/dry, age 25, light/mediumSo I have tried A LOT of concealers. I must say that this is a really good under eye dark circle concealer. Pros: - The texture is creamy - so it smooths and blends well, and it doesn't settle into fine lines too much (lets be honest, with all concealers there is always some settling into fine lines). - It has good staying power. The only time I have needed to re-apply once is when I'm on night shifts, otherwise it lasts the whole day. - colour match to skin is great - I prefer using a medium/light concealer range, as I find this counters the dark circles a lot better - Works well with any foundations. (Though I use the colourstay liquid foundation - and highly recommend this too)Cons:- haven't thought of any yet

I really dislike this version of the colorstay concealer. I am a big fan of the original in a tube with doe foot applicator but this one just looked terrible on the skin. It looked crepey and the colors were not very natural looking.

I always go back to this when i need to know my concealer isnt going anywhere for the day. It hasn't failed me yet,and I always rebuy.THAT BEING SAID...It's certainly in NO WAY moisturizing. If you are 40+, i would reccomend using this sparingly, as it can look dull. As with all these color stay products, you have to be really fast. No hesitating or letting it sit.I would say i use this the most around my mouth, and nose to take down redness for the day without adding a whole face of base. Also it really helps around the lips to set lipstick parameters.

I don't have super dark undereye problems, but do get moderate darkness when I have allergies or am very tired. This concealer covers well, blends well and stays all day. It also works well for covering blemishes. I love the new crank tube packaging so you don't waste much product at all.

I'm a fan of Revlon's Colorstay line because it's one of the few lines that doesn't break me out (I have really acne prone skin). But in terms of the quality of makeup, I would not say it's the best there is. It's just ok, lol. This undereye concealer was about $8 at Target. As far as color goes, it matches my skin tone perfectly, so no issues there. It also works geat as a primer for my eyeshadow, by adding a little bit to the eyelid and blending it in. However, I would not say it has full coverage of my undereye circles- maybe medium coverage (it does make a little bit of a difference, but does not mask them entirely). It also has a tendency to settle into fine lines around the outer corners of my eyes a little bit. But it does blend pretty well into the skin otherwise. (I used the Fair color)My biggest gripe with this product is the container. You have to be careful with how much you twist up, because it's really easy to get too much squirting out of the top. I've had several tubes that would get sort of stuck, and then a bunch of concealer would pop out and waste product (though this did not happen with every tube I bought). You also have to twist a lot when you first open the product just to get the concealer to come out. I feel like for the money, there should be more product in the tube (I feel like $8 is a little pricey for such a small amount). I used this stuff for about 3 years, but recently found something I like better. :) So for now, I won't be purchasing any more of this product, but will keep what I have left over in case I run out of concealer and need something I know will work alright.

Don't love this product..Stays all day. No waste packaging. Nice and yellow to cover moderate circles.I guess my problem is that when I'm not wearing makeup I literally look like I've been punched in the face and I'm yet to find a concealer that fully covers my dark circles.I will use this product until it runs our but probably won't re-purchase.

Purchased this recently alongside the standard Colorstay concealer. Coverage is even and smooth, but what is really off-putting is the packaging- sometimes the liquid becomes gloopy and you will need to twist it several times to get anything to come out. It is also very hard to be gentle with the applicator when applying directly to the eyes; I think I will stick to concealers that I can first apply to the back of my hand in order to instead use my ring finger to gently apply it to my under-eye area. Won't be purchasing this again, although I do like the idea: guess the follow-through was lacking!
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
