Bourjois, for me, is one of the best ‘high street’ makeup brands out there. They consistently bring out high quality yet affordable makeup that’s also beautifully packaged. The newish Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer is no different, in fact it’s one of the best under eye concealers I’ve used. The only thing really letting this down is the poor colour selection. There’s only 3 available and that isn’t going to suit everyone.
This little gem of a product is a colour corrector and brightener. It does a great job at both. I have quite a cracking set of dark circles thanks to my toddler and chronic illness and an under eye concealer is one of my everyday must haves to make me look a bit, well, alive. Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer is highly pigmented, a tiny bit of this goes a long way and I find you can layer up easily too. As well as concealing my under eye circles it brightens the whole eye area up very nicely. I’m using the lightest shade 01 Ivory which suits my pale, cool skin tone perfectly.
Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer comes in a rather nice bottle with a handy doe foot applicator. Application is super easy but I do find it’s best to remove some of the excess concealer before applying to the face. You’ll most probably need less of this product than you think.
Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer contains Mont Blanc glacier water and hyaluronic acid which both hydrates as well as helps smooth away fine lines, apparently. I can’t say I’ve noticed much effect on fine lines but it does feel very hydrating and soothing on my eyes. Due to its very creamy consistency I do find it settles slightly into lines and creases a bit. To stop this happening I use my finger to pat the concealer into my skin gently then use a bit of powder to set it and that helps stop this problem. The concealer doesn’t dry up throughout the day like some other concealers can which is brilliant if you have dry skin around your eye area or are a little bit older.
As well as being a great under eye concealer Bourjois Radiance Reveal is a rather lovely highlighter too. It blends out beautifully and lasts well throughout the day. It adds a nice touch of radiance and freshens up the complexion. Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer is also perfect on days when you don’t want to wear foundation but just want to brighten and even the skin tone. I should add that if you’re looking for a spot concealer then this isn’t the one. Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer is very much an under eye concealer and highlighter, and a damn good one at that.
