I been seeing makeup revolution range all over Instagram and on the blogs, and have been waiting to try out one of their new products! When they launched their fast base foundation sticks last week, I was dying to try these out!
Available in 18 different shades, the fast base foundation sticks are the new and fastest way to apply foundation. The foundation melts into the skin covering up imperfections and giving an even and contoured complexion.
I saw the YouTube tutorial of Tammi makeup, using the fast base foundation stick and since she is a similar tone to myself, I went for the shades F12 and F13.
F12 is for medium to dark tones, with a neutral undertone.
Whilst, F13 is for dark skin tones with a warm undertone. When applying F12, initially I was disappointed as due to the shade having a neutral undertone, the foundation sat quite pale on my face. I ended up adding the shade F13 over the lighter patches on my face and worked this in with a foundation contour brush. Mixing both F12 and F13 shades on my face gave me the perfect complexion that I was looking for.
I used the sticks to also contour my face using F12 to conceal underneath my eyes and highlight the bridge of my nose and eyebrows. Using F13 to contour my cheekbone and jaw line.
I am pleasantly surprised at the quality of the Face base foundation sticks. After using the stick I had high coverage and my face was left looking fresh, dewy and bright. However, due to the fact that I am in between colours, I would continue using this product more of a contouring tool, rather than for foundation use. I kept the product on for the rest of the night and can testify that this product does have longevity and I cannot believe that this product only costs £5! £5! Available at Superdrug and Tam beauty!
