Affordable High Coverage Foundation : Make Up Revolution

Make Up Revolution recently launched in Priceline, so I popped in to check out some of their products . While I was there I picked up the highly raved about Conceal and Define Foundation. With all the hype about it, I was excited to test it out and see how it goes. Is it one of the best affordable high coverage foundations?

The Conceal and Define Foundation is a lightweight yet buildable coverage in 50 skin-true shades, this versatile foundation is designed to suit every skin type and tone. With an oil-free yet creamy and comfortable formula that dries down to a long-lasting, demi-matte finish, it claims that it won’t settle into fine lines or cling to dry patches. Even better, it is vegan, cruelty free, paraben free and oil free. The foundation is $18 at Priceline, which sounds a little more expensive than the £9 on the Revolution website, however if you consider conversion rates AND shipping costs, it's basically on par. 



But let's talk about the foundation. It comes in a luxe looking bottle, with a doe applicator. The giant doe applicator is designed for less waste and a greater control of application. I am not convinced by the doe applicator, mostly because I see it being a bit of a challenge when it comes to getting the last little bit of foundation. I am not at this point yet, so I can't comment on it, but I'll keep you posted. 

To apply this foundation, I simply take the doe applicator and swipe it across my skin a couple of times. Then I take my brush and blend. First thoughts were definitely about the high coverage. It is a lightweight and creamy consistency which blends easily into the skin to a high medium coverage. With a little bit more in the places needed, it becomes a full coverage. It covers everything and evens out skin tone easily. I was very impressed! It didn't look cakey or heavy, it didn't feel like I was wearing a full coverage foundation. 





As for lasting power, it stayed on pretty well. I did notice that on some wears it went a bit patchy after a couple of hours, but with a little bit of blending it looked fine again. In general, with a bit of setting power it lasts really well. There is noticeable wear in my t-zone,  particularly on my chin and around my mouth, but as anyone who has read my previous foundations, this is my common area that always goes a bit patchy. 

Is it the best lasting foundation? No it isn't. Is the coverage and the overall wear good though? Yes. I love how my skin looks when I have this foundation on. I can see it being a good go-to on bad skin days, or for events. I love that it feels weightless on the skin, but has such an impressive coverage. For the price point, I think it's fantastic! If you're looking for an affordable full coverage option, I would 120% recommend this foundation! It definitely rivals some of the pricier full coverage foundations I've tried. The range includes 50 different shades, which is AMAZING! I would say that it jumps from light to tan quite quickly and while the shade I picked is a touch too light for me, the next shade is much too dark. However, from my quick look at the shade range it looks like the shades will suit a lot of people. 



One other thing I wanted to talk about before I finish is the Conceal and Define Concealer. I am also LOVING this concealer. It is a creamy, full coverage concealer that blends into the skin easily. It covers blemishes easily, sits beautifully under the eyes. Just like the foundation it is lightweight, but creamy consistency. There are two sizes of the concealer as well. The regular for $7 and the supersize for $14. Both very affordable AND both have quite a few different shades. I have heard people compare this to the Tarte Shape Tape, which I get however I don't see it because I really didn't like how thick the Shape Tape was and how hard it was to blend. This concealer is much easier to use AND sits better on my skin.



Safe to say, I have been very impressed with the Make Up Revolution Foundation and Concealer. Have you tried them yet? I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below! xx
