Welcome back to my blog, It has been a little while since we’ve spoken but non the less, im here again haha. Todays post is something a little different but is in very high demand right now! If your interested, ive also filmed a video which is going live on Monday on my youtube channel ‘chelseamarieabery’ the video is a little more in-depth as i try the foundation on and check back in to see how long its last etc.
Anywayyyyyy Lets get on with the post!
So i follow Makeup Revolution on Instagram and on their story they announced that they where bringing out a foundation stick in 17 shades which cost £5! Yes, thats right, £5!! At the moment you can only purchase this foundation online, and i think (THINK) the foundation is available to pick up in stores by late March 2018.
Now im a great lover of Makeup Revolution so I was so grateful for them bring out a foundation. I immediately searched for reviews across the internet and youtube and came across Sophiedoesnails Video on the product. (Sophiedoesnails does work along side with Makeup Revolution however her review was extremely honest and she did include some negatives). She couldn’t rave more about the product and she explained as she has oily skin she had to do one touch up of powder throughout the day but that was all – so if you have oily skin thats a factor you may want to keep in mind but as the product is only £5 you wouldn’t be wasting to much money at all.
Here is the product. As ive said before, the product costs £5 and you do get a good amount of product for the price, I feel it will last me a long time but depending on how much you’d comfortably use will depend on how long it will last. (My video shows the amount of product inside if your interested). The packaging is super cute and handbag size which is another bonus! There are 17 shades available which covers everyones shade – another pro! So my initial thoughts were rather great – we were off to a great start.
The product is simple, remove the lid, and twist the rose gold section to reveal more product. A simple but glamourise design! As you can see, my shade is extremely pale (F1) – perfect for me!
Applying this was beautiful. I used my Max Factor All Day Primer as my base, The applied the foundation stick. I drew lines across my cheeks, forehead and chin. To ben i used my Real techniques Beauty Blender after dampening it. I had to dab rather firmly but none the less, the foundation blended seamlessly which was the part i was most concerned about so i was rather impressed! The coverage is medium to full and is buildable. It covers imperfections and red patches which is ideal for me. I then powdered with my Mac Studio Fix Powder like normal. And the foundation sat perfectly.
I then went on my normal day routine, College 9am to 2pm (i know i have a great timetable!) It was a windy day but no rain and then a hospital visit for a blood test where i was nervous! Then returning home to Finnish filming my video (5pm). The foundation had lasted all day and still looked flawless! i was so impressed! 5 out of 5 stars for me!
Information you may need to know; I have extremely dry skin and and use Nivea Dry Skin moisturiser. I have a pale complexion.
As you can tell i cant get enough of this incredible foundation, Makeup Revolution has succeeded!
I hope you have enjoyed this review! if you have tested this product yourself please tell me about your experience below. Ive read many reviews and I’ve only seen one negative review so far!
Many thanks, Chelseamarieabery x
