The concealer comes in a tube that reminds me of a paint tube. The applicator is also similar to a paint tube, allowing you to squeeze out a big dot, or small dots to fit your skin type.
In the first photo I drew a line with the pencil and put a dot of the concealer on the back of my hand. As you can tell, they are too yellow for my skin tone. Almost every face product I get is too yellow, I guess more people have yellow or warm skin tones.
In the middle photo I began blending it in. You can really tell how much the concealer can cover with a little dot!
The last picture, I blended them all in. Luckily, the yellowness wasn't near as noticeable once I blended it all in. Even though it appears that the concealer makes pores more visible I swatched this on the back of my hand on the side of my pinky, where the pores are just really big (without the concealer)!
I think that this concealer covered very well. I tested this on my wrist and it almost completely covered my super noticeable blue veins. I feel that it can look a bit cakey, but thats something you need to live with if you need a heavy duty concealer. With this in mind, I don't suggest this concealer for the under eye area.
Today I have another Revlon Illuminace Cream Shadow Quad! I just showed this in my "Few Things From Walmart" haul. really enjoy these cream shadows, and feel that they are overlooked and not as popular as they should be.
Where To Buy: Target
Size: 0.12 oz. / 3.4 g
Shades Available: 12

Each of these come with 4 cream shadows. As you can see in the picture above on the right, it is larger than the palm of my hand. This product is thin & sleek, so it doesn't take up a lot of room & is easy to bring for travel. The large mirror also makes this product ideal for travelling. The only thing I don't like about the packaging, is that it can be difficult to open and has broken my nails before!

Bathroom Light Swatches
The formula of these cream shadows is very smooth & creamy. It will dry out over time, as do all cream products. They aren't very thick, but, still provide a decent pigmentation. The pigmentation of these shadows will be better with darker or brighter colors, versus these pale neutrals & pinks. They also last a nice time, making them good as bases (in this palette, for lighter shadow looks)

Here's what I did to create this colorful, but, wearable look:
Finish of the Look:
Here is one of my go-to eye looks that I wear frequently. It's a good look for me, since I have blue eyes, the black liner really helps them stand out. However, black liner looks good on almost everyone! Here's how I created this look:
