I’ve been trying to keep away from reading reviews on the new foundation by Revolution. I watched Sophdoesnails Youtube review and then purchased it on a whim. I’ve been super excited to try this and didn’t want people’s negative reviews to give me different expectations. Needless to say my expectations of this are high.
First off, this foundation costs £9, is in frosted glass packaging and the applicator is a big doe foot applicator- a bigger version of the concealer one! I got the shade F6 which suits me perfectly, more so than any other foundation i’ve tried.
When it came to applying this I wasn’t too sure how. I dipped into the foundation and just spread it onto my face although I wasn’t too sure how much to use. That’s always the worst thing about trying new foundations when you don’t know how much to apply because too little will make it patchy and too much will be a disaster. After applying the right amount I blended it out with a Real Techniques brush like I always do and then go over with a beauty blender to make sure it looks as flawless as it can. The first thing I noticed with my brush was that it didn’t blend as nicely as other foundations but that was easily fixed when I went over it with the beauty blender.
Most of the time when trying new foundations i’ll either absolutely love it or hate it straight away but with this I was a bit undecided. Looking at it properly made me notice that all of my dry patches of skin (which is pretty much all my nose and forehead at the moment) looked really cakey and horrible and it made me feel a bit self-conscious. It didn’t look too bad on my cheeks and anywhere that wasn’t dry. After about 10 minutes it felt quite uncomfortable on my skin and I didn’t wanna sit with it on my face so I took it off.
I think if my skin wasn’t so dry it could have the possibility of working really well for me because the coverage is nice and the shade is perfect but it seems like a shame that it doesn’t work for me right now. I will 100% try this again when my skin isn’t so dry but not every foundation will work for every skin type as disappointing as it is. However this might work better with a primer if your skin is dry and this isn’t a reflection of the concealer because i love that! If you have dry skin and you’ve tried this i’d love to hear your thoughts!
