Foundation Friday – @makeuprevusa Conceal & Define Full Coverage Foundation

June 21, 2019

When all you hear are positive reviews for a very affordable foundation, at least for me, it quickly becomes a must buy! That’s why I picked up the @makeuprevolution Conceal & Define Full Coverage Foundation ($12 for .8 ounces at @ultabeauty – and have been testing it sporadically over the past several weeks.
What it claims:
🔘 Offers lightweight yet buildable coverage in 24 skin-true shades, this versatile foundation is designed to suit every skin type and tone
🔘 With an oil-free yet creamy and comfortable formula that dries down to a long-lasting, demi-matte finish, it won’t settle into fine lines or cling to dry patches
🔘 Housed in a luxe glass bottle with a jumbo doe-foot applicator for greater control and less waste, this foundation offers highly pigmented coverage that can be layered or diffused to suit your look
🔘 Vegan
🔘 Cruelty, paraben and oil-free
My experience:
🔘 I purchased shade F6 (for light/medium skin tones with a neutral undertone), but it’s still too light. I made it work with bronzer, but I wouldn’t purchase that shade again.
🔘 I have tested this foundation on four (4) separate occasions and varied which moisturizer and primer I used each time.
👍🏻 I like the packaging and really enjoy the applicator.
👍🏻 The price is great.
👍🏻👎🏻 The shade range is pretty good.
👎🏻 I dislike the scent. It smells like chemicals.
👍🏻 I have applied it with both a sponge and a brush and it gives high medium to high coverage both ways.
👎🏻 This instantly settles into my forehead lines and in between my eyebrows. No matter what moisturizer/primer combination I use, it looks cakey and dry in that area.
👍🏻 It looks good today on my cheeks and nose, but that hasn’t been the case every other time I’ve worn it.
My verdict?
After today, I will happily never be wearing this foundation again. I have tried every trick in the book to make this work for me, but to no avail. I hope to never see my forehead looking this wrinkly and cakey ever again.
Have you tried this foundation? If yes, did it work for you?
