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 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.

The Chella Ivory Lace Highlighter is a jumbo pencil style highlighter. This product is very versatile and can be used as a cream shadow, shadow base, brow highlight, inner corner highlight, concealer, under eye corrector or even as a lip liner to prevent lipstick from bleeding. (This product was in my June Ipsy Bag)
The Ivory Lace Highlighter is very creamy and easy to apply. It doesn't pull on my skin at all. This also blends easily with your fingers if you are using it as a concealer or corrector. It has some nice wear to it, but I do think it would need to be reapplied at least once during the day.
Despite the name, this highlighter isn't really an ivory color. It's much more peachy-toned than ivory. It looks good with my skin, though and creates more of a natural highlight than something more white. The peachy tone also allows it to work as an under eye corrector!

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!
