A photograph of this foundation launched and everyone went crazy. Sounds like a post apocalyptic mess but the new Revolution foundation had been announced and we all wanted to get our hands on it. I ran out to Superdrug and purchased the shade F1 which is a yellow undertone shade. This foundation claims to be full coverage and oh boy, is it!
The first impression of this foundation I got was that it needed to be blended quickly but I expected that after using the concealers. Powder seems to layer beautifully on top of it too. When I swirled my brush around on my cheeks no product came off and I was genuinely blown away on the first try.
I put it to the real test and wore it to work. I asked a select few of my colleagues how it looked and they all just said ‘nice’. So then I put my best friend on the spot and asked him what he genuinely thought. Did it look oily? How did my pores look? Did it look cakey?
He said it looked really light and my pores looked none existant! Success! A foundation that blurs the pores. After a few hours my impression started to go downhill, the foundation fell into my creases, not horrifically though. With a touch up it should be fine, oil started to form after about 3-4 hours too but that’s normal for me.
I cannot confirm or deny if it was this product that caused a reaction but after 3 days of using this foundation my skin has insanely broken out! I hope it isn’t this foundation because I do really like it.
The con to the foundation is that it’s heavily scented! Smells like the Wet N Wild Photo Finish and the Estee Lauder Double Wear. Quite a headache-inducing smell, for me anyway.
With all my reviews I would recommend you trying it for yourself, but I do really like this foundation and a price point of £9 you cannot really moan.
