Make-up Revolution: The Matte Effect Foundation Review!

19 June 2015

Hello!

Even though I said a few months back that I'd have a massive clearout on all my make-up, I'm still finding products hidden away. Whoops! Not only have I realised that I need to stop buying things I don't need, but I also know that I really need to sort my organisational skills out! I'm terrible!

The latest discovery is my Revolution Matte Effect Foundation. I actually cannot remember buying this and I have no idea how long it's been hidden away. Obviously to make up for lost time, I thought I would get straight to reviewing it!

I'm not sure if you can tell completely in the picture, but the formula is so runny that it's actually a little uncomfortable to put on your face. It didn't feel like it was going to "set" and leave the matte effect but it did with a litte help from my powder. 
 
Even though this foundation was only £2, I was a little surprised it was slightly better like other Make-up Revolution products I've tried in the past. The lasting power was quite bad and even after a few hours I could see my blemishes and dark circles starting to show through.
 
Personally it's an okay foundation on it's own but I'd promote it more as a mixer for you to use with other foundations - maybe ones that are too light and need darking up or foundations that are too matte for your dry skin. On it's own though, it's not for me!
 
You can check it out for yourself though on the Superdrug and Make-up Revolution website here!

  1. I'm ashamedly a bit of a foundation snob, this mostly because when I was younger I had awful skin!
    It's a shock that this wasn't better, normally Makeup Revolutions products are on point!

    1. I know yeah! I was expecting a little bit better quality but I suppose that's what you get when you pay £2 for a foundation! xo

  2. Oh that looks runny and a tad dark for your skin hahaha maybe it's expired and that is why its runny? :p I usually go for more expensive foundations myself, flawless skin is what I'm always after. I prefer makeup revolution eyeshadow palettes instead :)

    1. It was runny when I first brought it :( I definitely think the other makeup revolution products are still great quality for money - just maybe not the foundation ha xo

  4. I know what you mean about it being too runny. I had a similar one a while back and it ended up caking everywhere. I'm glad I didn't buy this as I was eyeing it up a while ago!

  5. Sometimes you have to test a lot of products out before you find the one that is for you but I always find it to be such a disappointment - I am still on the search for my next favorite eyeliner (since the one I used to use has changed their formula and gives me major raccoon eyes now) and testing new ones out are so annoying because I go into the bathroom at lunchtime only to see that I again have major raccoon eyes. :(

    1. I'd try the Collection Extreme Eyeliner. It's meant to last for 24 hours and I've found it to be pretty amazing :) Plus it's not too expensive! I wrote a review on it last year if you want to check it out! xo

  10. I like Makeup revolution's powder products like highlighters and blushes but foundations and concealers are not appealing to me at all.
