Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer

Bourjois claims that the Radiance Reveal Concealer is enriched with water from the glaciers of Mont Blanc along with Hyaluronic Acid to visibly smooth away wrinkles and fine lines and hydrates the under eye area for up to 24 hours.

Name: Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer
Price: RM 39.90 for 7.8 ml
Made in: France

While this is labelled as a correcting and illuminating concealer, it isn't at all shimmery. The creamy and blendable consistency provides a medium coverage and a nice brightening effect for the under eye area. And while it is able to cover imperfections including blemishes (for me at least), the shades are too funky (for me again, at least) to be used for that purpose.

It comes in 3 shades (2 of which are brought in) which is admittedly insufficient to cater to all skin tones. I am a match for 02 Beige because my complexion brings out the salmon undertones in it (virtually undetectable on anybody else I must say). Let's hope that Bourjois will extend the range!

01 Ivory - 02 Beige

It does sit on the skin a little though, so I would suggest thoroughly blending for a more natural finish. Also set it with powder, because creasing will inevitably happen, no matter what other bloggers may tell you. Or it could be my oily mug and ever deepening fine lines creating disorder as usual *sniff*



I know people of all skin types who have raved about this concealer, so I would happily recommend this product to anyone out there (provided if you find a colour match). Please let me know what you think if you have had a go! And do check out my review on the foundation counterpart to this concealer over here.

The bottle is glass? Looks very classy for a concealer though *_^ I am not too sure, for me, the before and after pictures come across as if you don't actually need a concealer! haha

The after shot reveals or accentuate more fine lines and roughness of your under eye though... which are not visible in the before pic, perhaps like you said, need to blend it out more? Not too sure.

But nice packaging I would say. So far, I am loving my Missha concealer, I feel it works best for me so far. Shiseido one is not too bad either.

Nice catching up with you earlier. Hope to see you again.

With love,

Hey Jeann! Yes, it is made from glass. Not bad for a concealer sold in the pharmacies right?

It is my eye cream that's helping my eye area look more awake than it is, haha! Sadly, makeup causes it to vanish, and my real condition to surface *boohoo*
