Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Full Coverage Foundation (All shades)

Did you know that Makeup Revolution's Conceal & Define Foundation is now available in 50 shades? Designed to suit every skin type, this oil-free foundation offers full coverage and a semi-matte finish, without settling into fine lines or clinging to dry patches!

The formula is creamy but not too thick, it blends out well with a Beautyblender. It doesn't feel sticky or oily, but it feels a bit heavy if I apply a second layer.

The Conceal & Define Foundation dries down to a semi-matte finish, but I tried it with a few different primers and some of them change the finish. If you prefer a dewy or luminous finish, try it with a luminous primer (such as NARS' Radiance primer)!

On my oily skin, it stays completely matte for about 1½ hour. The finish is more luminous after that period of time, but my skin doesn't look greasy. I don't mind the dewier finish so I only use a blotting sheet when my skin looks very oily, after about 4 hours. It lasts 8-9 hours on me before it breaks down.

This isn't a moisturizing foundation, so I'm not sure how it would work for normal to dry skin types, but it's a great foundation for combination or oily skin!

It doesn't cling on my dry patches, but to be honest my skin is less dehydrated in the summer months so it's harder to tell. I apply it with a damp Beautyblender too, which always make my foundation look better when I have dry skin patches.

The coverage is medium but buildable to full. It has a natural-looking finish when I apply a thin layer, but it looks too cakey for me if I apply a second layer to achieve full coverage.

I personally prefer to apply a thin layer and add a bit more product only where I need more coverage.

Oh and by the way, this foundation is fragrance free!


I'm not sure if this foundation will work for me in the cooler months (my skin is drier in the winter), but I love it for the summer!

Also, I tried it a dozen of times so far and it didn't break me out.

The only thing I don't like is the doe-foot applicator, I would prefer a pump!
