Foundation Friday – @makeuprevusa Conceal & Define Full Coverage Foundation

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:

πŸ”˜ Offers lightweight yet buildable coverage in 24 skin-true shades, this versatile foundation is designed to suit every skin type and tone

πŸ”˜ 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

πŸ”˜ 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

πŸ”˜ Vegan

πŸ”˜ Cruelty, paraben and oil-free

My experience:

πŸ”˜ 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.

πŸ”˜ I have tested this foundation on four (4) separate occasions and varied which moisturizer and primer I used each time.

πŸ‘πŸ» I like the packaging and really enjoy the applicator.

πŸ‘πŸ» The price is great.

πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘ŽπŸ» The shade range is pretty good.

πŸ‘ŽπŸ» I dislike the scent. It smells like chemicals.

πŸ‘πŸ» I have applied it with both a sponge and a brush and it gives high medium to high coverage both ways.

πŸ‘ŽπŸ» 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.

πŸ‘πŸ» 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?
