About the Product
Kosas Revealer Super Creamy + Brightening Concealer And Day-Time Eye Cream (28 USD; Made in USA) – is described as a mega creamy concealer and eye cream in one. It should brighten and correct, all while nourishing the skin.
Packaging: this beautiful design is definitely unique, modern and eye-catching. Everything about the concealer says “well made” (from the doe-foot applicator to the colorful lid). You get 6ml/ 0.20 oz of product.
Formula: Revealer Concealer has a creamy, smooth texture. As far as ingredients go, I have no complaints – you get Caffeine, Pink Algae, Peptides, Arnica and Panthenol. It is a water-based formula with a high amount of Glycerin in it, which explains why it is so hydrating. Sodium Hyaluronate and Squalane are listed towards the end of the ingredients’ list, so their actual content is not that high.
Not sure what to make of the “eye cream” claims. Personally, I still use my skincare (including an actual eye cream) underneath this product.

Scent: none detected or listed.
Finish: although Revealer Concealer appears quite dewy upon application, it does set to more of a natural skin-finish with a soft sheen. Medium coverage, that can be sheered out or built up when needed.
Application: this is truly one of those concealers that you can apply with your eyes closed. You can use any tools (sponge, brush, fingertips) and get equally great results. I have never, not even once, encountered any issues while applying this Kosas creation. Works well for both – brightening the under-eye area and covering discoloration anywhere else on the face.
Wear: mind you, I have dry skin, so I do not set this concealer with powder. Initially there is minor creasing (which happens with any other product when it settles into fine lines or creases), which I then fix by soaking up the residue with a miniature q-tip, brush or even my fingertip. When I check my Revealer Concealer after 6-8 hours, it still looks pretty good (coverage is in place, but the finish might appear more dewy as the day goes by). From my experience, it did not accentuate dryness, texture or pores.
