Makeup Revolution just released a new stick foundation and a bit before that they came out with a concealer which everyone is raving about. I also couldn’t resist their shiny liquid highlighters while browsing the revolutionbeauty (previously tambeauty) website.
The foundations and concealers come in 18 shades so everyone can find their perfect match. I think that’s amazing especially for an affordable brand. All shades are described on their website which makes it easier to decide which one to choose. I went with the shade 4 – F4 in foundations and C4 in concealers – which is described as a light shade with a neutral undertone. I also bought a concealer in C1 to brighten my under eye area and some other parts of my face and I got a foundation in F12 which I’m going to use for contouring.

Foundations and concealers of the same number are supposed to match but actually they are a bit different as you can see in the photo. Both concealer and foundation in the shade 4 also pull a bit pink so I wouldn’t describe them as a neutral undertone.
The Fast Base Stick Foundation has a medium coverage and a fresh dewy finish. It blends beautifully and not much of the foundation is needed because it spreads really well. I was very impressed by the way it wore. My skin is combo and I usually have to blot my T-zone at least a few time during the day but with this foundation I only needed to do it once. It also didn’t rub off my face much. It did settle into my fine lines a bit but all foundations do – that’s life after 30! 😉 What bothered me the most was a feeling that my skin looks a bit dull with this foundation but maybe that’s just because the shade F4 looks a bit too pink on me so I’ll order a more warm-toned shade since I really enjoyed wearing the foundation. It’s also possible to contour with these foundations. I bought the shade F12 and it worked really well.
I also loved the concealer. It has a very decent coverage but still looks lightweight on the skin. It blends and spreads really well and just a bit of this concealer goes a long way so I suggest using it sparingly.
I bought the highlighters in two shades – Liquid Champagne and Liquid Starlight. They look absolutely beautiful and blinding when swatched.

These highlighters spread easily and only a tinny amount is needed. They blend really well, almost too well and leave a glittery finish on the skin which I wasn’t too happy about. I think I’ll only use them for some intense Instagram looks because they look better on camera than in person.
