REVIEW: Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer

After reviewing the new Bourjois City Radiance Foundation, I’ve had many requests to also review Bourjois’s new concealer ‘Radiance Reveal’. Always striving for more radiance in my makeup routine, I jumped at the chance to get my hands on both of these products, and I was definitely not let down.

Aesthetically, the concealer doesn’t disappoint. It is in a simple rectangular, frosted glass jar which looks very cute in your makeup bag.

The consistency of the concealer is 100% what I need and what I try and aim for. It is very light, but not at all watery, meaning that it provides a lot of coverage without looking cakey in the slightest. It almost reminded me of NARS Creamy Concealer, but slightly less creamy. In fact, I was so impressed with this concealer as when I put it on, it didn’t even look like I was wearing makeup at all (result!)

It also does its job very well. As in, it conceals beautifully. I say this bearing in mind that I very fortunately don’t get any spots or breakouts, but have horrendous dark circles under my eyes which is why I am so obsessed with getting the right concealer. It covers up the dark and veiny zombie look which I succumb to on a daily basis and makes me look like I don’t actually want to murder the rest of the world in the morning.



I also have fairly dry skin around my eyes, which is also why this concealer is so good – because it doesn’t dry out at all and makes me look like I’ve had a wonderful power nap. It contains hydraulic acid which is one of my favourite ingredients in a makeup product, as it’s so hydrating which is great for combatting dry patches.

I generally don’t like to put powder underneath my eyes as I don’t like to cake my makeup on, or dry the skin under my eyes out, which would obviously make the staying power better on any concealer. That said, I feel like this concealer provides a good coverage and still bears a similar effect when I return from work in the evenings (about 12 hours later).

Overall, I am really impressed with this concealer and it is definitely a new addition to my every day make up. It does exactly what it says on the tin and would recommend to any one who needs a bit of sprucing up in the morning and something to hide those deathly dark circles under your eyes.

Please let me know what you think if you’ve had a try of this concealer, and if you would recommend any more! And also check out my review on the ‘City Radiance’ foundation which is a brilliant match to this concealer here.
