For the last few weeks, I’ve been trying out the new Fast Base Foundation Stick and the Conceal and Define Concealer from Revolution after hearing the hype about it.
Until now, foundation sticks have never appealed to me but after trying it, I’ve done a complete 180 – they’re just so easy to use whether you’re using it for makeup top ups on the go, travel makeup or for your everyday makeup it takes up no space at all and I’ve been really impressed by the coverage of the Revolution Fast Base foundation.
All you need is a couple of swipes of the stick across your face and the formula melts into your skin. I blend mine using a brush but you could use a beauty blender or sponge too. The coverage is what I was most impressed with, its a really high coverage for such a bargain price of only £5. You could also use these sticks for contouring!
I wasn’t sure which shade to buy when I first purchased mine so I got shades F2 and F3. Both are for fair skin tones but the F2 is for tones with a yellow undertone and the F3 shade is for tones with a pink undertone. I’ve mostly been reaching for the F2 shade which looks more natural on me.
The Revolution Fast Base Foundation stick is available in 18 shades and costs £5.
While I was out shopping, I also picked up the Conceal and Define concealer from Revolution in shades C2 and C3 to match the foundation. I’d also heard good things about this concealer as it’s also high coverage without being too heavy and cakey which is definitely what I want from a concealer.
A couple of dots over areas that you want to build up the coverage is all you need to erase any blemishes and I really like the applicator – it’s bigger than most other concealers I use so it’s quite good at getting coverage over the face. I’m also thinking about picking this up in the shade C1 to help brighten my under eye area.
The Revolution Conceal and Define concealer is available in 18 shades and costs £4.
