MAKEUP REVOLUTION CONCEAL & DEFINE FOUNDATION OILY SKIN REVIEW


As promised this is the Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Foundation* Review. I picked up the shade F10.5, described as being for "medium skin tones with a warm golden undertone". I do have the Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer* in shade C10 as well. I don't consider this to be a perfect match for my current skin tone as it is a little too warm right now but in summer I think it will be close to perfect. This foundation claims to be an oil-free creamy formula which dries down to a demi-matte finish without settling into fine lines to create an even airbrushed complexion. It is vegan, cruelty-free and oil-free, can be applied with a damp sponge or brush and works well with setting powders and finishing sprays for extra longevity. 


This isn't my favourite foundation, after watching both Nikkia Joy and Casey Holmes review it, both had varying opinions, I went in with an open mind and thought, especially with that description, that there was a distinct chance that I could love this foundation. I find it is an okay foundation, I prefer foundations with a pump dispenser only because it is very easy to overdo it with this wand applicator, but on the other hand, I do like that I can apply it straight to the face without wasting product or getting foundation on my hand. All in all, the most disappointing aspect of this foundation is the wear, it doesn't wear nicely, it does get oily/dewy regardless of how I set my face and it does settle into my smile lines which is the most abject disappointment for me. I look for matte foundations that look skin-like so demi-matte finishes are usually a winner and I want a foundation that will last a good ten hours on my skin to last me through a standard work day without touch-ups. I don't mind a little oil, but separation and settling is a no-go  for me. This isn't one of those foundations you can set and forget, other foundations from the drugstore like the L'Oreal Pro Matte and Maybelline Super Stay Foundation can perform this way for me so this leads me to believe I will not repurchase this foundation. 


There is a great shade range and if you have normal skin this might last really well on you, I have tried it in many ways and the best way to use it for my skin type is to apply skincare and primer, set with powder then apply foundation with another layer of powder. This technique works well and improves the longevity of my base, if I spritz some Urban Decay All Nighter to top it off it is as close to bulletproof as I will ever achieve but it does leave my skin feeling slightly stiff and unable to breathe. I would describe this is a medium, buildable coverage, you can achieve full coverage but I feel like I do have to use quite a lot of product to get a full coverage finish which is a con for me. Other foundations I want to try are the Revolution Matte Base* and the L'Oreal Infallible Fresh Wear Foundation. It is the last day of February and I have not purchased a single cosmetic this month (go me!) but I have been testing out the new Laura Mercier Flawless Lumiere Radiance Perfecting Foundation* in Golden. A review of that foundation will be up next week. Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed this short, snappy review. Leave a comment sharing your current foundation down below, I would love to know what your products you are trying at the moment. Check back on Sunday for some new product discussion. Take care.

  1. I already don't like most matte foundations because I have very dry skin so this is a definite no for me! Also, the wand makes it look like an oversized concealer.

  2. That's too bad about this!! I don't really have oily skin so I might try it next time I'm at Ulta.
