On the never ending quest to find a perfect budget concealer I have been trying everything that has been recommended. My latest purchase is the Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer.
I guess I should start by saying straight off the bat that this is ok. It didn’t blow my mind.
Product Details (from the Boots website)
This light enhancing concealer conceals dark circles and imperfections whilst smoothing and hydrating for 24 hours.
The packaging is simple and chic. A frosted style tube and in line with the bourjois products like the velvet lip products.
I do think it’s quite small though – but it could just be deceiving packaging.
It’s a smooth consistency and feels really light on the face. Although in the picture below it looks opaque but I would say it’s quite sheer.
The colour is nice and yellow but I do have the lightest one which is still a little too dark for brightening under the eyes. I use this to cover up though and it works nicely.
This covers and conceals ok and it’s ok lasting but not the 24 hours it claims. I like the colour for concealing and because I am not using it on my eyes I can’t say whether it creases or not.
This is a lovely concealer if you want something light and don’t mind it not being a very light shade (if you’re not pale). I will definitely finish this product off and have it as part of my makeup routine at the moment but I won’t be in much of a hurry to repurchase.
I have bought other budget brands which have impressed me more but still looking for the ultimate budget brand one.
I have been recommended the NYX concealer so that will be next on my purchase list.
Have you got any budget recommendations? Let me know down below. Would LOVE to hear from you.
I’m not familiar with this brand, so I’ll have to check it out!
I love Bourjois and I completely love the look of this concealer the coverage looks fab! L x

Sometimes it’s difficult to find a product that is good in all the aspects we want it to be and still have it be at a price point we are happy with. Hopefully you will find a good one soon.

I love to use the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer – that’s my favourite drugstore one x
Oh I will have to check out this make, i dont have anything from them but this looks good!
I personally hated this one,it creased so badly under my eyes,it was an odd color and on spots I found it quite “highlighting” rather than concealing. You should try maybelline fit me or the age rewind,although it might be a bit dark for pale skin, both are bleandable.
Fit me is definitely one I go back to but still not light enough. The age rewind is too dark 🙁
I haven’t tried this one before. I have used the Collection 2000 one which is very good x
Bourjois is one of my favourite budget brands. Used to love their blushers and eye shadows and they even do one of my favourite mascaras but never been that impressed by shades they offer for foundations x

Sounds like a very good concealer, not tried Bourjois makeup in ages apart from the healthy mix foundation
I’m looking for a new budget concealer so this search is handy for me! I’ve tried the W7 one from boots which isn’t too bad. It’s not a liquid concealer but they have good shades as there’s one for me and I’m very pale!

I definitely need a new concealer and I heard that Nyx’s one is good as well! Love the sound of this one as my skin is not fair so it might be good on me x

The NYX Hd concealer is the best budget one I’ve used and the only one I’d happily still use over my Urban Decay Naked and Kat Von D lock it x

It’s a shame it doesn’t last the 24 hours although I doubt many people would wear it for that length of time. I always remove mine before getting into bed.
I like the simple packaging of this. I think that sometimes make up brands try to be too “funky”
I never understand the claims that things last for 24 hours, who wears makeup for that long anyway? x
I know what you mean about this being ok but other budget brands impressing more – I found the same
I love bourjois and I have the healthy mix serum foundation but I’ve not seen this concealer before, I might have to give it a go! My ultimate high street concealer is the Collection one! So amazing! xo

This looks beautiful! #LeahXLUD
That’s odd as i think the exact opposite. It is designed specifically for the under eye and the lightest shade is very light, are you sure you got the lightest? It will crease if not baked but it is best for very dry skin like mine. It is my holy grail under eye concealer but is not for spots, i use my collection or fit me one for that
It was the lightest. It isn’t the right shade for me for sure. x
