Revolution Conceal & Define Foundation | review

I absolutely love the Revolution Conceal & Define concealer, and have been using it for a few months now - but I only recently picked up the foundation, because I'd run out of whatever I was using at the time and I wanted something affordable with good reviews. So here's my review to add to all the rest, testing the Revolution Conceal & Define Foundation for dry skin...

Shade range

One of the things I love about this foundation is that there are FIFTY shades which for an affordable 'drugstore' foundation is absolutely incredible, and something that all brands should strive towards so that everyone can wear make-up that suits their skin tone without having to splash out on expensive or obscure foundation brands. Anyway, there's 50 shades ranging from fair to dark with different undertones throughout which is just brilliant - it's well worth going in store to pick your shade if possible, because there's so much choice, but the website descriptions aren't that bad. I have the shade F2 and it's pretty good for my pale face.

Packaging

The packaging looks and feels quite luxe - it's glass and has rose gold accents. But I have to say I'm not a huge fan of the oversized doe foot applicator because I find it takes so long to get enough foundation on my face as hardly any comes out on the applicator itself, so I'm dipping it back in over and over. For this reason I just pour some out onto the back of my hand now, which is mostly fine.

Formula

Now, onto the foundation itself! It's medium-full coverage, and I find it builds up quite well if you add some more in areas that you need it. The finish is very matte but if you're after something a bit more dewy, try adding in a couple of drops of facial oil or something like the transparent photography foundation from Hylamide to make it more glowy.


Other make up, particularly powder products, sit well on top of the Conceal & Define Foundation, and one of my favourite things about it is that it lasts really well on the skin. With dry skin, foundation often clings to very dry patches and disappears in other areas but with this, it still looks pretty good hours later even if I've been behind the bar where it's always boiling. I always use setting spray, of course, but I still find that this foundation lasts better than most!

Price, availability and more

In terms of price, I think this is so affordable - it's £9 for your standard 30ml which is amazing for such a decent foundation. You can get it in Superdrug, and it can also be found on the Revolution website which has free delivery over £15. The foundation, along with Revolution's other products, is cruelty-free and has rave reviews everywhere.

So, that's what this dry skinned pale kid thinks of the Revolution Conceal & Define Foundation - have you tried it?!
