Revolution Fast Base Stick Foundation Review and Conceal and Define Concealer Review and Photos

Makeup Revolution Foundation Stick and Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define
Ever since I discovered Makeup Revolution a few years back (thanks to a viewer on YT actually) I feel like they have gone from strength to strength. With a total re-brand last month as well as the launch of Revolution Pro it's easy to see why Revolution Beauty is dominating the drugstore market.

This year also saw the launch of two new face products from the core Revolution brand in the form of the Revolution Fast Base Stick Foundation and Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer. I initially did a First Impression video (that I've linked down below) on both of these but now after testing them out for a good month, I thought it was about time I share with you if they really are worth the hype...
Price
The Revolution Fast Base Stick Foundation retails for a modest £5 for 6.2g of product which isn't a lot compared to a drugstore liquid foundation, however, this is still super affordable and it's also Vegan and Cruelty-Free.

Additionally, there is a wonderful selection of 18 shades to choose from and if you're unsure on which colour to pick up then there's a really useful rundown on who each shade is for over on the website here.
The Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer retails for an insanely affordable £4 for 3.4ml of product. Again you don't get as much compared to some other drugstore concealers but this is a versatile full coverage conceal and contour product.

Shade wise there is 18 shades also and just like the foundation you can find a handy list of every shade and who it is right for over on the website here.
Packaging
Fast Base Stick Foundation - I love the beautiful nude packaging and copper accents, plus it's also perfectly compact especially if you're on the go or travelling.
Conceal and Define Concealer - This is gracefully adorned with rose gold, my favourite kind of makeup packaging! Inside you'll find a large doe foot applicator for ease of application.
Application
Fast Base Stick Foundation - Upon application, the consistency is really creamy and glides on like a dream. I used a damp Beauty Blender* to blend this all out but I have since tested this out with a brush and I have to say I prefer the sponge better as it helps give a more even, flawless coverage. If you are using this on the go then you can use your fingers also.

I picked this up in F2, however, I did find this to be slightly too light for me, nonetheless, I really enjoyed the efficiency of this and the fact it gave great coverage and a wonderful flawless finish. You can also use these to contour and highlight too.
Conceal and Define Concealer - This is a full coverage concealer that has a thick and creamy consistency. Upon application, this covered my dark circles and redness perfectly and blended out flawlessly with the help of the Real Techniques Mini Eraser Sponge*. The only thing I would say is I'm not overly fond of putting this right up to my under eyes as I do find it creases a little, nevertheless this is a great one to conceal, contour and highlight with.

I have since tried this on its own also and I actually really like this for no foundation days if you just want something that's quick but still covers up anything you need it too.
Longevity
Both the Foundation and Concealer lasted a good eight hours which was great. The foundation I actually loved, even more as the day went on, but because this has such a creamy consistency I would recommend setting this with a little powder. All in all, both felt totally comfortable on the skin.
Overall Thoughts 
Fast Base Stick Foundation - If I had to sum up this foundation I would say it's easy to use, versatile and compact, plus it's also creamy and feels lightweight on the skin. Yes, you don't get as much compared to a liquid foundation and you may have to set this with a little powder but, overall this is a fantastically affordable foundation with a remarkable shade selection.

Finally, I think this is best suited to anyone who loves time-saving products, that are full coverage and compact, especially if you're a mum on the go or you're travelling.

I award the Revolution Fast Base Stick Foundation a 4.8 out of 5


Conceal and Define Concealer - This is such a great full coverage concealer and the fact it's under £5 and very accessible is always a bonus in my books. I admit, this does crease on me a bit and it's a shame you maybe don't get slightly more product, however, this is perfect for covering up a multitude of sins as well as being great for contouring and highlighting if you prefer a cream product instead.

All in all, this is a great one for anyone who likes again a full coverage, creamy consistency that's matte, versatile and affordable. 

I award the Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer a 4.7 out of 5
