I am super impressed with Revlon ColorStay Skin Awaken Concealer.
ColorStay Skin Awaken Concealer is a newer launch from Revlon and I was super excited to test it. When I picked it up, it had already gotten many rave reviews on Ulta.com, with several users saying things it blends easily, doesn’t look patchy, and it lasts all day. But, we all know not every product works for everyone. Personally, I have normal to combination skin and concealers tend to settle into my fine lines. I also live in a hotter, more humid climate, so even long wearing makeup can underperform. Let’s see if Revlon ColorStay Skin Awaken Concealer works for me.
Promises vs. Performance: Let’s see how these 24 hour wear claims hold up.
When it comes to the wear, I’m impressed there too. As I said, my skin looks healthy and hydrated, not dry. It has minimal settling/creasing and does not accentuate texture and lines. We all dread that crepey under eye look, and ColorStay Skin Awaken did not give that. I wouldn’t say it has a 24 hour wear (TBH, I typically only have makeup on for around 12 hours), but it wears beautifully while it’s on. This concealer impressed me enough to include it on my list of must try drugstore concealers (rated ****4.0+).

How It Compares: There’s so much to love about Revlon ColorStay Skin Awaken Concealer.
I’ve got to say, Revlon ColorStay Skin Awaken Concealer is a bomb concealer. The formula has a lightweight texture that blends easily, even with it having a quicker set time (work one eye/area at a time for best results!). When blended out with the fingers or a brush, it gives a solid medium coverage that can be sheered out or built up. Paired with a setting powder, it wears beautifully for a full day (8+ hours) with minimal settling or creasing. There’s none of that dreaded crepey under eye look with this one! If you need a concealer that provides ample coverage and brightens without being too radiant, this is one to check out.
But, in my opinion, there’s many concealers at the drugstore that perform well for specific uses. While Maybelline Instant Age Rewind (rated ****4.1) is iconic and great for dark circles, it isn’t the best for concealing imperfections like blemishes and redness. The Milabu Team has put together a list of our favorite, must try drugstore concealers, broken down by what they’re good for. It includes favorites like the e.l.f. Camo Concealer, Colourpop No Filter, and newcomers like NYX Bare With Me.
