Makeup Revolution Fast Base Foundation Stick Review

It feels like forever since I wrote an individual product review, but as soon as I tried out the Makeup Revolution Fast Base Foundation Stick, I knew that I needed to write about it on my blog. This product definitely blew me away and I couldn't quite believe how good it was for just £5, so make sure you keep reading to hear all of my thoughts and opinions of this product!

This product is advertised as an incredibly fast, everyday foundation, as well as being blendable, buildable, sporting a satin finish and having cruelty-free status. Being like nothing I'd ever tried before, as well as constantly raved about on social media, I knew that I had to try it! Makeup Revolution have definitely been upping their game and the quality of their products are always insane, whilst still staying affordable, so my aim was to put this foundation stick to the test to see how good it is for just £5.

As easy as it is to say that you don't judge a book by its cover, it's impossible to resist the gorgeous packaging of this product. The sleek look of nude pink and rose gold are definitely Instagram-worthy and you certainly wouldn't presume this was a budget product at first sight. They definitely look more expensive than they are, but it doesn't stop there as the product itself is even more lavish.

This foundation is available in 18 shades, which is an incredibly vast range for a drugstore brand and means that you'll easily find a shade perfect for you. It caters for various undertones and ranges from light to dark, and there's also plans to extend the range in the future so you definitely won't struggle to find a match. The foundation shades also coordinate with their Conceal & Define Concealer, which is great for creating a flawless, cohesive base.

The shade that I picked up is F7, which is perhaps a bit too dark for me right now that I'm not tanned. However, when I'm on a night out or a bit more tanned, this is a great match for me.

My immediate assumptions about foundation sticks are that they'll be incredibly stiff and tug at the skin, so I was pleased to see that this product was instead creamy and easy to apply. The stick makes it convenient for fast application, as all that's needed is a few swipes across the face and then it seamlessly blends out. The buttery, soft consistency means it glides onto the skin like a dream, and it blends really easily without losing any of its pigmentation. It's also really easy to build up this foundation and layer it to give the desired effect, making it versatile for whatever look you're wanting to achieve.

The Makeup Revolution Fast Base Foundation is the definition of high coverage, and I was expecting to need to layer it quite a few times for a full coverage look, but just one works wonders. However, the presumptions of full coverage foundations being really cakey and heavy on the skin aren't true here, as it has a dewy and almost radiant formula that I much prefer. I personally think just one layer gives the perfect coverage, but you can build this up depending on your preferences.

I seriously love how this foundation looks on the skin, as it gives a slight dewiness to the skin whilst still being packed with a punch in terms of pigmentation. It leaves your skin looking flawless and concealed with a healthy glow, and since it doesn't accentuate any pores or blemishes it truly does create an effortless appearance. It also doesn't feel heavy or uncomfortable on the skin, in fact it feels the same as wearing any other foundation, and other products apply effortlessly over the top, meaning it's ticks all round for this product.

The final test for any product is how well it lasts, and I have to say that the Makeup Revolution Fast Base definitely exceeded my expectations. Even hours after application this foundation doesn't budge, even when I've tested it out on nights out amidst the sweaty conditions. Despite me being someone who struggles with makeup wearing away throughout the day, this foundation definitely locks into place and doesn't budge.

Overall, this foundation is a definite must-have from the drugstore and is the perfect budget option if you want something high coverage yet still radiant and flawless on the skin. At just £5, you seriously can't turn it down! I definitely loved trying out this product and can't wait to see what else Makeup Revolution have in store for us, so if you have any recommendations then I'd definitely be open to hearing them!
