This is going to be a review in two parts (like you couldn’t tell from the title!) because otherwise it is going to be stupidly long!
My Benefit review was quite long and I don’t want you getting so bored you only make it half way through! 🤣
I thought we would split them up into Base and Eyes/Lips. If these posts prove to be popular I may do a series focused solely on Makeup Revoloution products. Let me know in the comments if that’s something you would be interested in!
Without further ado…
I love this 💜. It doesn’t crease, it applies and blends nicely and doesn’t feel too heavy on my skin even though it is full coverage. Ive found it looks good all day (minimal creasing) and doesn’t feel drying on the skin. Also, any smudging of your mascara can be wiped away fairly easily without disturbing the product too much.
I got this in the shade C1 and it’s perfect for my skin tone – almost blue like a white walker 🤣 – it’s described as being for fair skin tones with a neutral undertone. The shade range is massive and I know of people using darker colours to contour as well but I’ve not tried it myself.
At only £4 for 4g, I think this is a bargain for what it can do!
Who hasn’t heard of the Fast Base Stick Foundation? It has been everywhere on social media! Of course, I had to try it too!
Shade F1 for me. I’ve never tried a stick foundation before so I was quite apprehensive. There was nothing to worry about though.
It is such a creamy formula and it blends great; however it takes a little more effort to blend than liquid foundations. It provides medium to full coverage and lasts all day once set. It does have a very dewy finish so I needed to use a fair bit of setting powder to mattify it to my liking.
It is so easy to apply, literally seconds, so great for when you’re short on time.
This was only £5 but I’m not quite sure how much product you get for that. It does seem like it will last quite a while as a little goes a long way.
I thought I would try the new Revolution Pro Range. From what I can tell, the products are slightly more expensive than their “basic range” but they are not expensive for the quality of the products when compared to other brands.
The Correcting Primer works well to minimise redness. It feels quite thick for a primer so I would only use it for areas that needed the colour correcting (sometimes this is my whole face!) And would use another primer for the rest of my face.
It isn’t noticeable under your foundation and doesn’t make it go cakey. On the other hand, I don’t necessarily think it makes your foundation last like other types of primers do.
This comes in 3 shades: green, peach and cool pink. I have only tried the green one and to be honest I’ve never really known the purpose of the rest of the colours used for colour correcting.
It costs £7 for 25ml and it will last for a long time as it’s only really for spot applications so I think it’s worth the money if it’s needed but you could just use a normal primer under your foundation instead.
I found the Full Cover Camouflage Concealer was a much thicker consistency than the Conceal and Define. It still blended out nicely, though it felt heavier on my skin.
Again, I got this in the shade C1 and it matched me well; however, I don’t feel like it was completely full coverage like what I was expecting but it did brighten my under eye effectively.
I found it creased slightly more through the day and it oxidised a bit as it dried down.
This is £5 for 8.5ml which I consider cheap for a drugstore product especially when it can compete with higher-end products.
I think I’m more likely to stock up on the Conceal and Define than this one just because of the consistency of it didn’t feel as nice for me.
I also picked up the Full Cover Camouflage Foundation, again in the lightest shade – F1. I was really dubious about this at first. I tried it on the back of my hand and it dried down really pink. Checked the website and it’s definitely for neutral undertone!
Luckily when I applied it to my face it was fine – no pink face for me! This is quite a thick foundation. Again, like the concealer, it’s not as full coverage as I thought it would be but it is buildable to full coverage.
It feels quite thick but it blends well and lasts all day. I noticed that’s it’s quite dry so I need to use a good primer and moisturise well so it still looks good.
At £7 for 25ml, this won’t break the bank. I like this foundation but as it’s quite heavy I will probably keep this as stage makeup rather than for everyday wear.
The last product I bought was Crème Highlight and Contour Kit in the shade light. It has two sticks one for contour and the other for highlight. Each stick is double-ended and has a warm and a cool shade.
This also comes with a double-ended tool for blending the product. It has a blending sponge on one end and a brush on the other.
I’ve never used the tool because I keep forgetting I have it, I also like to keep things the same as much as I can for testing new products so I give them a fair chance.
Cream contour was another thing I hadn’t tried until I used this. I really like this product and think I’m a complete convert from powder contour!
I only use a light hand with this but it is possible to build this up to provide a darker contour. It blends quite well and doesn’t look cakey or muddy on my skin.
As I set my face with a translucent powder most of the time, I don’t feel like I get the best from the highlight. It applies nicely and blends well like the contour stick but as soon as you try to set your face it sticks to the place the highlight is and looks quite cakey. I feel like if I didn’t need to set my face this would be a perfect subtle highlight.
Because of my paleness, I tend to use the cooler shades of both the contour and the highlight. The warmer ones just don’t look quite right on me which is a shame as they are very pretty.
This is £15, I think I picked it up in one of the Superdrug promotions where they do 3 for 2 so I got it for a bit cheaper than that. I’m not sure I would buy it again at full price, only because I will only use half of the product.
I would love it if they made a cool tone double-ended stick so I could buy it separately! If they do already, let me know as I’ve never seen it!
Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed this one, let me know if you did! Part two will be coming up shortly!
