As some of you will know from previous blog posts I am a huge fan of Makeup Revolution. I have spoken about their palettes in previous blog posts which you can read here. Recently they have launched their pro range too which I have a couple of products from already and love. I know there was a lot of hype around the new foundations and I jumped on the band wagon and bought the Makeup Revolution Fast Base Foundation Stick and the Revolution Pro Foundation Drops so I thought I would give you the low down on how they wear and if they were worth the hype.
Makeup Revolution Fast Base Foundation Stick
I was a very nervous to try this one. I have never used a stick foundation before and know that the old ‘pan stick’ foundations were very heavy and cakey. I had heard great things about it so thought I’d give it a whirl and for the £5 price tag you can’t really go wrong! Finding a foundation shade to match my milky white skin has been a difficult chore in the past but MUR have a great shade range. I went for F2 which has a slight pinker undertone than the F1 which it more on the yellow side.
My initial thoughts: easy to apply, great coverage and perfect colour match!
I drew 3 lines on each cheek, dabbed a little on my chin, nose and forehead. I used my Zoeva buffer foundation brush to blend all over and was surprised how well the product moved around my face and blended so well! The coverage is buildable so you can adapt it to your needs. I always finish my foundation with the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in 003 peach glow. I loved the end result my skins looked flawless. When it came to wear I’m not 100% sure it’s my favourite foundation, I feel like it sits in my lines (I’m a few days off 30 and I don’t have that many!) and I find that it does transfer when I touch my face or kiss my boyfriend! (He gets in on his nose quite a bit!) On hotter days I have found the it melts away and I need to top up which is not something I want to be doing!
I’m slightly disappointed with the result and I don’t think I will be purchasing this one again.
Revolution Pro Foundation Drops
I was way more excited about this one as it’s more in my comfort zone! I again went for the shade F2 and it’s a perfect match. This one is priced at £7 so still amazing value for money. It comes in a glass pot with a pipette and has high-end feel to it.
My initial thoughts: easy to apply, really nice finish, natural but with good coverage.
I found this very easy to apply, not much product is needed to get a really nice result. I used this one every day for a good week or more and to start with thought I had discovered a real gem. However my opinion has changed and I have to say I don’t think I will be repurchasing this one either! (I know shock horror!) The initial application is very good and the finish looks great however as the day goes on I quickly become shiny and my skin feels greasy (I have naturally quite dry skin so oil is never a problem), again it transfers easily and I don’t feel that it has much longevity.
So all in all I wouldn’t say I hate either of them but I don’t think they will be on the repurchase list anytime soon, which is very disappointing! I was expecting much more from them but at the same time for the price I’m not overly disappointed as I didn’t waste too much money!
Have you tried either of these foundations? I would love to hear your experience and if you think anything different!
