Revlon PhotoReady Concealer in light 002
Although I buy a new concealer every couple of weeks or so I don’t review them often…  They’re one of my most purchased / most binned-after-a-few-use products and I haven’t come across many that give great coverage but still look natural. This one from Revlon is a recent spur of the moment buy and it totally kicks ass

The only reason I got this was cos I needed to spend a minimum of £15 to get the GWP from Revlon. Also got an eye liner and lip gloss to take the total over 15 quid :)
I had very low expectations as these little stick concealers are normally ridiculously cakey but this goes on like butter and covers like paint. The little lipstick style twist-stick means this is one of the least messy ways to apply a concealer and because the texture is so nice I can literally draw lines and dots where I have yucky stuff going on that the rest of the world doesn’t need to see and then blend it out with my fingers. Hey Presto, you’d never know I had only got 2 hours sleep and currently have 3 spots the size of small-ish volcanoes on my chin. Impressive, no?  
In the past I’ve found I need a light, runny textured product to hide my dark circles (thick ones just sink into the skin around my eyes making the area look all dry and cakey) and a thicker more creamy one to hide blemishes (anything too thin just slides off throughout the day or doesn’t cover well enough in the first place) but this does both
Summary : 
Cost - £6.49
Size - 3.2g
Shades available – light, light/medium and medium
In a nutshell – So awesome that if anyone tries it and doesn’t like it I’ll eat my hat

oh, boy!
the only reason i haven't tried this yet is because the Photoready foundations is...wel..kinda sparkly, and i deffinitely dindn't want my zits to sparkle eather :)))
but you didn't mention anything about it having glitter or light reflecting particles in it, so i think i'll give it a go!
thank you!
