Revolution Fast Base Foundation Stick | REVIEW

Yes I am late to the hype with this product but it was so hard to get hold of, I managed to grab one about 3 weeks ago and like to test it for a couple of weeks before giving a true opinion.

Now, when it comes to stick foundations I am not the biggest lover, I have previously tried the Makeup Forever HD foundation stick after hearing sooo many good things about it but I absolutely hated it and with the near £30 price point it just wasn’t worth it in my eyes. But I am a big lover of Revolution makeup and at only £5 I just had to try this foundation stick.

This foundation comes in 18 shades which is amazing for the drugstore as usually there are only about 7/8 different shades? I picked up F8 which on the Superdrug website is described as being for ‘medium skin tones with yellow undertone’ I always wear fake tan so always look for a foundation with a yellow undertone rather than pink.

I have quite dry skin so was sceptical before using this as I usually tend to go for a liquid foundation that I can blend in with a sponge. I used a budding brush to blend the foundation in and then went over it with a damp sponge. I heard that this foundation was very dewy and easy to move around so it needed setting but with my skin type I very rarely set my face with a powder as my foundation never moves and I don’t want to dry out my skin even more so the first time I used it I didn’t set it and after about 6 hours it had started to go very oily and even coming off my chin.

The next time I used it I did use a setting powder but only where the foundation came away before and it lasted well but I still wasn’t overly impressed with the product. However after a couple more uses I realised how much I actually prefer it to some of my higher end foundations! Everyone needs to try this foundation and now I am excited to try the foundations from the Revolution Pro range!

  1. Thanks for a great review! I am excited to try mine out now. I ordered it a while ago, but the shade is slightly too dark and I can’t wear it until I am more tan. But I am really excited now after reading your thought on it 🙂
