Makeup Revolution's NEW Conceal and Define Foundation | REVIEW



I don't know why, but drugstore foundation has never really appealed to me. Maybe its because I could never find my shade in the store, because the testers disappeared or they simply didn't stock or make my shade. So, I opted to the luxury brands for foundation because I could always find a better range and it wasn't so hard to shop.




Ageless. Unisex. Affordable. Yours.
NEW to the Conceal & Define family, meet our Conceal & Define Full Coverage Foundation.
Offering lightweight yet buildable coverage in 24 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 won’t settle into fine lines or cling to dry patches.
Housed in a luxe glass bottle with a jumbo doe-foot applicator for greater control and less waste, this foundation offers highly pigmented coverage that can be layered or diffused to suit your look.
Swipe on and blend out to ramp up the coverage for a ‘real skin’ finish that diffuses blemishes and uneven skin tone. Or let your complexion’s natural character shine through using a small amount with a damp beauty sponge for veil-like coverage.
Follow with your favourite shades of Conceal & Define Concealer to highlight, contour or conceal.

Currently ''diversity'' and ''inclusivity'' are the trending words in beauty (which I'm not the biggest fan of and will explain in a future post why) so brands are extending their shade ranges in foundation like wild fire, I truly believe its because of Rihanna and Fenty Beauty, who actually recognised there were more than 50 shades of beige in the world...no shade..but shade. Makeup brands are now extending their lines with more colours for brown women with more undertones than red and grey!!


I was invited to the Makeup Revolution Foundation launch party a few weeks ago to learn about their new product that claims to conceal and define. The foundation is available in 24 'true-skin' shades at an affordable price of £9.  They also re-launched their concealer in a larger size, which I remember broke the beauty internet for its performance and price of £4. The new super size is 13grams for £7




I had the oppourtunity of being colour-matched by one of the makeup artists at the event, which led into being matched too dark (F15), bear in mind I had a tan from my recent Barbados holiday so I had to consider I would get lighter in the cold winter months, so I picked up a few other shades and requested some from the PR team to try and find my shade.



F12.5 – For medium/dark skin tones with a golden undertone

F13 – For medium/dark skin tones with a golden undertone

F13.5 – For medium/dark skin tones with a neutral undertone

F14 – For dark skin tones with a cool undertone

F15 – For dark skin tones with a red undertone



So F12.5 and 13.5 are clearly too light for me. F13 is near my shade and I'm assuming based on the concealer shade F14 would be too dark. I played around with F13 and it was very grey on my skin, which is a shame because it looked like a perfect match. Also the major issue I have is my neck is still tanned so I am currently two tones,which is so frustrating to match!!!!

I do however love the concealers. They are a great dupe for my fav Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. They have a great consistency and I love the way they sit on the skin. I give them a 4/5 and they are so affordable!! C13 is the perfect shade to cover my dark circles and I use C12.5 if I want a brighter under- eye look.



Besides me not finding my shade, its great that Revolution has a wide range of shades for black women, which has always been an issue for high street brands. I do think the undertones need more work, but I do believe it is a good start!!
