The Makeup Revolution Ultra Cream Contour Palette consists of four highlighting and four contour shades.
The Ultra Cream Contour Palette comes in the same black packaging as Makeup Revolution’s other palettes. The shades have nice pigmentation, but are not super intense, so I do not think this palette would be ideal for darker skin tones. The texture of the creams is pretty thin and slippery, which has its pros and cons. The slippery texture tends to be easier to blend out than a drier cream product. Because the creams have a thin formula, they aren’t as intensely pigmented, but that could be good or bad depending on your preferences. The creams also have a bit of a dewy finish, which may or may not be what you are looking for with a cream contour palette. While the formula of the palette is not perfect, you do not see many cream contour palettes at drugstore prices, and it still gets the job done, so I will continue to use it.

The Sephora Bright Future Gel Serum Concealer claims to be a feather light product that is ideal for the under eye area.
The Bright Future Gel Serum Concealer comes in a classic clear tube and has a typical doe foot applicator. The concealer has a very thin and liquidy formula, which makes it very lightweight, but it still retains a medium coverage. This makes it perfect for the under eyes to prevent them from looking cakey or creasing. It also blends very effortlessly, so there is no tugging or pulling on the delicate under eye skin. While this concealer is ideal for the under eyes, it also looks super natural over blemishes and large or clogged pores. The product sets quickly on the skin and has a natural matte finish, so a setting powder is not necessary if you do not get oily. I have dry skin and I do not experience this concealer creasing under the eyes, but I do not know how it would act on someone that struggles with concealers creasing. I am super impressed with this concealer; I love the formula, the coverage and the appearance on the skin and I think it will end up being my new go to concealer.

The Makeup Revolution Ultra Cover & Concealer Palette in Light is a palette of eight concealers for people with fair to light skin.
The Ultra Cover & Conceal Palette comes in a sleek black package with a nice sized mirror on the lid. All eight concealers have the same formula which is a huge plus, especially for a drugstore item. The formula is very smooth and thin and provides a light to medium coverage. Since the product is pretty thin, it can be a bit difficult to build it up. I have been using these concealers more as a foundation and they work great. They are very easy to blend, don't really cling to dry patches and last on the skin all day, with or without a powder. The only thing I don't love about this palette is that all eight shades are very similar. The very light shade and the banana shade are different, but the six others are hardly different. But, if you have trouble finding a concealer that matches you exactly, you could find your match here and the palette is not pricy. Overall, I really love this palette and have been using it all the time as both a concealer and foundation.

The Nyx Conceal Correct Contour Palette in Light contains six cream face colors: a neutral ivory, a yellow ivory, a pale yellow, a pink ivory, a warm brown and a light pink.
The Conceal Correct Contour Palette comes in an ivory compact with a clear lid, straying from their classic black packaging. All of the colors in the palette have a very similar formula, which is great to see. None of the shades were a dud to me. The product feels creamy, but slightly sticky. It's not thick at all, so it is difficult to apply too much. Because of the thinner formula, I don't find the product to crease throughout the day. All of the shades, except for the brown, have a light to medium coverage that is buildable. The brown shade is quite full coverage and opaque. Since the lighter shades aren't full coverage, I don't find this palette to work great for someone that is looking to cover blemishes. I like to use this palette for cream highlighting and contouring, which I prefer over using powder. The brown shade is actually really easy to blend out when applied wherever you would contour. Typically, I contour under my cheekbones and on the sides of my nose, and I highlight under my eyes and down the center of my nose. The three lightest shades in this palette work well on my skin as a highlight, but I don't find much use for the yellow shade, since I have a cool and rather pink skin tone. I wouldn't say that this is a staple product for every makeup collection, but if you are into cream highlighting and contouring, I would definitely pick this one up, especially with the affordable price.

The Tarte Colored Clay CC Undereye Corrector in Light-Medium is a warm peachy cream concealer.
The packaging of the concealer is really nice. It's quite thin and compact compared to many pots of concealer. However, it doesn't have a mirror on the lid, which could be a negative to some, but it doesn't really bother me. The consistency of the concealer is fairly thick and it feels a bit sticky. This made me worried about how it would apply and last on my under eyes, but it actually does a great job. The concealer is very easy to blend out under the eyes with your fingers and doesn't look patchy, even on dry under eyes like mine. Since the product is on the thicker side, I figured that it would crease throughout the day, but it didn't. It may perform differently on other skin types, but on me creasing was not a problem since I set it with a translucent powder. The corrector has amazing coverage and completely removed the bluish tint under my eyes.

The Rimmel Hide the Blemish Concealer is a lipstick-shaped stick concealer with nude, plastic packaging and a clear lid.
Ivory is a great match for my NW20 skin tone, but it would also probably work for someone with more of a yellow tone in their skin as well. The formula of the concealer is fairly thin, but it does provide a lot of coverage. It's not quite full coverage, but the coverage is very easy to build up and it works great for hiding blemishes or even large pores. Even though it's called Hide the Blemish, this concealer also works great under the eyes since it has a thin formula. I wore it under my eyes without setting it with a powder and did not experience creasing. The concealer is quite easy to blend out with a brush or with the fingers, and is an overall hit.

The Nyx Dark Circle Concealer in Fair is a light concealer with a peachy undertone. The concealer is a cream formula and comes in a small, plastic pot.
The concealer has a slightly dry cream formula that is not thick. The product will be creamier in hotter weather, so you could try to warm it up a bit if you find it to be too dry. Due to the slightly dry texture, it can cling to dry patches under the eyes. It gives a medium coverage and does a nice job with brightening up the under eye area. The concealer does have a peachy tone, but it's actually pretty close to matching my NW20 skin tone, as you will see in the swatches. It wore all day on me without creasing, but, creasing under the eyes has never been an issue for me.

The Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser in light is a peachy concealer designed to cover dark circles under the eyes.
The concealer comes in a plastic tube and has a round sponge on top, where the product comes out. To get the product out, you just twist the red part and the concealer comes out of the sponge. The product has a thin consistency, which ensures that it won't look thick or cakey under the eyes. I think it has a pretty nice coverage, but, I don't have very bad under eye circles. You can use the sponge to blend out the product, but I prefer to just apply it with the sponge and then pat it in with my fingers. I have a cool, pink skin tone, and the shade Light is a little on the yellow side for my skin, but I still think that it works. The product doesn't crease on me, but I do suggest setting it with a powder.

NYX Waterproof Concealer Stick in Green is described as a pastel green. On me it actually looks quite blue, but still works to cover redness.
This concealer is much better than I was expecting. I was expecting to like it, but not as much as I do. It's creamy and smooth to apply and is super easy to blend with fingers or a brush. This concealer has a light to medium coverage & it covers the redness around my nose like magic and doesn't look cakey or sickly (since it's green).
As for it being waterproof, I thought that this idea is special at least for drugstore concealers. I haven't seen any other concealers that are marketed as waterproof. That's the main reason I got this one (versus another Nyx concealer) for the hot summer months. I think this is more water resistant than other concealers but it definitely sweats off after a few hours in the hot sun (or working out, in my case).
This is the NYX Concealer Stick completly twisted up. As you can see, you get a lot of product and aren't ripped off at all. I really like this concealer! You get a lot of product, it's easy to blend and covers redness great!

This is one of the products from the May 2013 Ipsy Bag, Spring Fling. This concealer is in the shade vanilla and from a brand called Yaby.
I'm not crazy about the formula of this concealer. It is fairly creamy,but it takes a while for me to apply it and blend it in so it won't look cakey or like I'm wearing a bunch of product under my eyes.
As you can see in the swatch, this concealer is too light for me. This is my fault though because I had my Ipsy preference set to fair skin tone, I changed it to light for next month.
