I’ve gotten set in my ways when it comes to foundation, I have two that I love and don’t really feel like I need to change. I am still on the hunt for my perfect concealer, I’ve found a few that I love but not the perfect one yet.
On a recent trip to Ulta, I picked up a foundation and concealer from Revolution, and I’m sharing my opinion of them with you today!
Both of these products come in 50 different shades! Which I find really impressive, I don’t see that varied of a color range very often. There definitely wasn’t that many instore where I was, so if you decide to try either of these, you may need to order them.
They are also both Vegan, Cruelty-Free, Paraben-free, and oil-free, which is excellent.
Revolution says, “this foundation is a lightweight yet buildable coverage foundation for all ages and skin types. With a creamy and comfortable formula that dries down to a long-lasting finish, it won’t settle into fine lines or cling to dry patches.”
We all know the first thing that draws us to trying new beauty products is the packaging. This has a simple, classy look, a frosted glass bottle with rose gold colored lid and label. It’s quite a hefty little bottle, which makes it feel more expensive. My favorite part about the packaging is that it has a chunky doe-foot wand applicator, which makes application simple and mess-free. I don’t think I have used a foundation with a wand before, and I really like how simple it is the swipe on.
I got this in the lightest skin shade they offer, they do have a pure white mixer foundation, but I’m not quite that pale. The color is spot on for me. This is a semi-matte foundation, the formula is creamy. It blends out nicely, giving a medium coverage that looks like your skin but better. The coverage can be built up to full coverage, but I usually stick with lighter coverage.
Where it all starts to fall apart for me is the wear. Despite the marketing of it, it does settle into my expression lines and clings to any texture and dry skin. It drys, looking a little powdery enhancing the creases around my eyes and nose.
Revolution says, “This concealer is suitable for everyone looking for a lightweight finish with a boost of moisture. Offering all-day hydration with an infusion of hyaluronic acid, it covers blemishes, evens skin tone, and counteracts dark circles. The sheer, the satin finish won’t settle into fine lines, and the doe-foot applicator allows for a smooth, delicate application.”
The packaging of this concealer is very similar to the foundation, it has the same rose gold color scheme and the same style doe-foot applicator. The plastic tube doesn’t give the luxe feel that the frosted glass, but that not a problem at all.
At first, I wasn’t a big fan of this concealer, I was pairing it with the Conceal & Define foundation, and it wasn’t a winning combo for my face. After trying it with a couple of different foundations that I really like, I worked much better for me.
It is a medium that is easily made high coverage, without looking cakey. I found that it does require more blending to have a flawless finish, but once it’s there, it looks great. I got this in the littles shade, which is a little light for wearing alone. I tried wearing it under my eyes to look more alive and ended up looking a little crazy. With foundation and powder, it looks good, though, I always go for a lighter color concealer.
So, the foundation wasn’t a winner, I think it might be suitable for someone with oily skin, or someone who has a better relationship with matte products. As I have dryer textured skin, it wasn’t for me.
I do, however, like the concealer, I want to try it with a few different powder and foundation combos, but I think it’s a great little product.
