Guide Review - Revlon ColorStay Blemish Concealer

An acne concealer that actually covers blemishes and lasts all day is a tough find. Surprisingly, Revlon makes just such a product.

Revlon ColorStay Blemish Concealer gives great, matte coverage. Even those angry red zits can be successfully hidden.

I absolutely love that this product doesn't fade off or melt away, even on those oily-skin days.

My second favorite aspect has to be the price -- I found it for less than ten bucks. Who really wants to pay an arm and a leg for concealer anyway? And because Revlon products are found at nearly every store, you won't have trouble finding it.

While I personally like the wand applicators (which makes application more precise) some people do find them unhygienic.

Then there is the problem of color options. If your complexion is more "mocha cappuccino" than "peaches and cream", you probably won't find a shade suitable for you.

Even so, this acne concealer is a keeper. I'm already on my third tube!
