Revolution Beauty is a London based beauty brand that serves to represent and champion a diverse set of customers. They have a strong commitment to inclusivity and believe that makeup matters, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity or sexuality. I have been loving this brand for many years now, so I can’t believe it has taken me this long to finally do a review of one of their products. If you want to know what my thoughts are on the Revolution Conceal & Define Full Coverage Foundation, then keep on reading.
Let’s start off with the packaging. This foundation is housed in a luxe glass bottle. The bottle does have some weight behind it and is very well made. This is such a bonus considering how affordable the product is. There is 23mL of product within the bottle and the formula is vegan and cruelty-free. It comes with a jumbo doe-foot applicator for greater control and less waste. I personally like these types of applicators, but I do know of a few people who do not due to the hygienic issues this applicator can cause. Like many things, it all comes down to personal preference. This foundation retails for $16.75 AUD on BeautyBay.com and has 49 shades available. It can also be purchased from Priceline and the Revolution website.
Now let’s talk about the formula. Revolution claims that this foundation offers lightweight yet buildable coverage. It is designed to suit every skin type and tone. With an oil-free yet creamy formula that dries down to a long-lasting, Demi-matte finish, it is not meant to settle into fine lines or cling to dry patches. These are some pretty big statements, so I had to put it to the test.
They say that you can either blend the foundation out using a synthetic brush or a damp blending sponge. I prefer to blend out with a brush as I like the finish of that so much more, and I just find it easier to work with. I have the shades F1 and F7. F1 works perfectly for me when I have no fake tan on, whereas F7 is best when I have a fresh fake tan.
So what are my thoughts on this foundation? Well, it has a great buildable coverage. I would say it starts off as a medium coverage but can be built up to full coverage with two or more layers. It doesn’t feel or look cakey on the skin when built up. I love the finish of this foundation too. I have combination skin, leaning more on the oily side. I wouldn’t say it is completely matte on me, it does have more of a radiant finish.Although it claims to not settle into fine lines, I have to admit that it settled really deeply into my smile and frown lines, and it did so pretty quickly.
Overall, I am really impressed with this foundation and its wear time. Like I said before, it did settle into my fine lines. It also faded slightly around my nose but I find that most foundations do that on me anyway. I definitely recommend this foundation to anyone who has skin similar to mine (I can’t speak for people with dry skin as I don’t know how it would sit on that skin type).
Have you tried this foundation? Are there any others you think I need to try? Make sure you leave me a comment and let me know 🙂
That’s all for now Beauties!
