In theory, Revlon Youth FX Fill + Blur Concealer should totally work for me. It’s a smoothing liquid under-eye concealer for mature skin, and, well, I’m 42, got some fine line action, killer under-eye circles, dry skin, and I’m usually tired as hell.
Buuut the spongy applicator is a frickin’ mess to use! The concealer gets stuck in the sponge, and there’s no easy way to clean it. Oh, and then when I put the cap back on, the stuff gets all over the inside, and the cap is clear, so it gets all crusty while it mocks my desperate need for order in this chaotic world…
I mean, the concealer is pretty good for the price. It’s only $13.99, but WHAT A TERRIBLE OUTFIT. Total packaging fail.
The formula is like MAC Select Moisturecover, which was one of the first things I ever reviewed on MBB. Moisturecover is MAC’s liquid concealer for dry skin. Both are lightweight, moisturizing and medium coverage, but Revlon Youth FX + Blur does a little more brightening in the under-eye area.
Too bad the applicator ruins it for me, and it’s not just the spongy tip. It comes in a click pen, like Touche Éclat, which should be a good thing, but this one always dispenses too much, so the liquid ends up pooling in my fine lines to make them even more obvious.
I will say that I like the formula. I like how smooth my skin looks when I wear this, even if the color, and the one I use is called Medium Dark (which is the second darkest shade, by the way), is about three steps too light for me.
Basically, I’m just not that into it, man. [sigh] Guess I’m still on the hunt for that divine drugstore concealer. Let me know if you have one to recommend.
