Testing Three Makeup Revolution Base Products

Hello beauties, we all know of or have tried at least one Makeup Revolution product (they have recently changed their name from Makeup Revolution to Revolution Pro). They have really upped their game in the makeup industry, creating amazing dupes of higher end products. It use to be that they were mainly known for their palettes but have branched out to concealers and foundations in recent months. Today’s post is a review of the well known concealer, the new stick foundation and their baking powder.

Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer

This concealer has been reviewed to the high heavens and I even did a mini review in my full face of impressions not so long a go. This concealer has been compared to the Tarte Shape Tape.

I love the large doe foot applicator, it makes it super easy to apply the product to your under eye area and to any blemishes. It has a thick and creamy formula that blends out like a dream, covering my dark circles and a irritating spot that decided to grace me with its presence. I would definitely say this was a full coverage concealer which is right up my street. My favourite thing about this concealer is that it wears all day and doesn’t crease when set with a setting powder.

This costs £4 for 3.4ml and comes in a amazing 18 shades. I love using a darker shade for days I want a heavy contour.

Revolution Fast Base Foundation Stick

This foundation stick is new on the market and the idea behind it is to provide you with quick effortless coverage on days/nights you don’t have the time to work on a full face. I love the sleek bullet style tube that this comes in. From what I have seen on YouTube it’s been named the dupe of the Makeup Forever HD foundation stick. I have tried it and I have to say it’s pretty damn close, with this foundation stick maybe a little more on the dewy side.

It’s super easy to apply to your skin, simply swipe lines onto the face. I preferred using this with a Real Techniques buffing brush as I found a beauty sponge took away some of the coverage. This blends out extremely well and gave a lovely flawless look to the skin that didn’t make my large pores look worse. The coverage is definitely a medium and not a full and I wouldn’t recommend trying to build it up as it can look very cakey.

This gives a very dewy finish, which even as a dry skinned gal was too dewy for me so it will be no good for anyone with oily skin. I have to set my foundation when wearing this.

Costing £5 for is a bargain price for a foundation stick but you don’t get a lot of product in the tube. They’re 18 shades in the range and each one has a concealer shade that is meant to match it

I chose a pink toned concealer to counteract with my dark circles as a colour corrector

Revolution Bake & Finish Powder

Lastly I bought this powder as I was running low on my ultimate favourite RCMA No Color powder and thought I’d give this a go. I always bake my base makeup as I think it helps to brighten the face. The bottle although cute, is annoying to get any product out. You have to pour the powder into the lid and it goes everywhere and makes a huge mess.

When I first applied the powder with a sponge onto my under eye using a baking technique it felt quite thick so a little goes a long way. I wiped off the excess with a powder brush and to my horror it left a horrible white cast to the skin, it was just far too heavy and made the flawless looking foundation look patchy and made the concealer crease horrendously. They should make the powder much more finely milled then it is. I will not be using this again and wouldn’t recommend it to anyone and ended up just buying my old faithful!

This costs £5 for 35g

After the horrendous experience with the baking powder i ended up removing my makeup and reapplying it without the setting powder to take pictures so you can see the natural coverage and finish of the concealer and foundation.

    Lovely review! I have heard about that powder being troublesome before! I did recently pick up both the concealer and foundation stick as well. Really like the concealer, but I don’t really think it is a dupe for shape tape as many say. Not in a bad way though, I actually kind of think I prefer the MUR one, at least thats my impression now. The foundation was a bit too dark now (will be good in spring/summer) so I haven’t tried it yet, but now I got very excited! Thanks for the great reviews 🙂
