Collection vs Revolution Concealers

Sunday, 15 April 2018

For as long as I can remember, I've used the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. Sure, I've tried others, but none have come close to how good the Lasting Perfection is for the price. That is, until Revolution released Conceal and Define Concealer. 

If you're a beauty lover, it'll have been hard to miss the release of Conceal and Define as everyone's been talking about it and it's been impossible to get hold of. Every Superdrug had sold out, no matter where I tried in the country. It's been referred to as the dupe of Tarte Shape Tape, but for a fraction of the price (I've never tried Shape Tape, so unfortunately, can't compare it to that). Eventually, during the Easter weekend, I finally got my hands on the Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer and was excited to see how it compared to my beloved Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer.

So how do they compare?

One of the things I love about Collection Lasting Perfection concealer is the coverage. For a mass concealer, it beats many other premium concealers in it's coverage. It's great at brightening dark circles around the eyes as well as covering up any blemishes. The coverage of Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer intrigued me the most and I wasn't disappointed. I've been really impressed with it, it's great at brightening underneath my eyes as well as covering up any redness. Unlike Collection, Revolution Conceal and Define has an oversized doe foot applicator which makes it so much easier to apply to large sections of my face, meaning that I need less applications for the same amount of coverage. The matte finish is exactly the kind of finish I look for from my liquid make up products, though it might not be up your street if you prefer a more dewy finish.

One of the biggest differences between Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer and Revolution's Conceal and Define Concealer is the consistency. The Conceal and Define has a much thinner consistency and coupled with the large applicator, this means it's great at covering large sections of my face. However, for a me, I prefer the consistency of Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer as I don't find it as 'wet' on my face.

Shade range
Revolution wins this one hands down, with 18 shades, there's a shade for everyone. Whilst Collection have increased their shade range to 6 shades, it's no comparison to Revolution's 18. It's much more versatile and whilst I bought C1, I know there's plenty of options for the summer when I hope to have a tan. The large shade range allows Conceal and Define concealers to also be used to highlight and contour, making it a multi purpose product.

Collection Lasting Perfection Conclear may appear to be a more premium product once applied, however, there's no mistaking it's a mass brand when you see the packaging. It feels quite cheaply made and the text is forever rubbing off as soon as you put the concealer in a make up bag. Therefore, I was really surprised when I first got my hands on the Revolution Conceal and Define as it feels so premium. The glass bottle and rose gold metallic lid make it seem much more expensive than it's £4 price tag. I've yet to throw this into a make up bag, so I'm not sure how it fares when travelling with other products, though I'd be surprised if it had any effect to the packaging. 

As I mentioned, Revolution is only £4, 19p less than the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. Both concealers are really good value for money and I don't think I'd ever consider buying a more premium concealer now that I have these two incredibly priced concealers to choose from.

I love the Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer and I do think it's worth the hype, however, I'm not sure that it quite beats my love for the Collection Lasting Collection concealer. Whilst I will continue to use it and will probably repurchase it again, I just think the Collection Lasting Concealer is a better consistency for me, making it easier for me to blend.

I'd love to know your thoughts on the Revolution Conceal and Define if you've tried it. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below. 


  1. That Collection concealer is so popular, I feel like I hear people talking about it all the time.

    1. Yeah it is, I definitely think it’s worth the hype though, it’s so good! Thank you for reading xx

  2. I've not tried the new Makeup Revolution concealer yet but my love for my collection concealer is strong, although the packaging irritates me a lot (after a week or two the writing has started to rub off) so I'm going to give the Makeup Rev version a go when I find it :)

    1. Yesss I know what you mean, it really annoys me that the writing rubs off, it makes it look so grubby! You should definitely give the Make Up Revolution a go though, it’s so good! Xx
