Makeup Revolution Fast Base Stick Foundation Review & Swatches
Now this is an exciting product!! Makeup Revolution Fast Base Stick Foundation has had a lot of hype building up to its launch, and I will admit I was among those waiting online for its launch ready to buy them before they sold out! Stick Foundations have become a popular alternative to traditional Foundations, providing a fuller coverage and quicker application. So when Makeup Revolution Fast Base Stick Foundation was about to launch, I was ready to dive straight in!
Makeup Revolution Claims:
The easy-to-apply stick formula melts into skin, blending seamlessly to leave a fresh and dewy finish.
Twist up, swipe on and blend out with fingers, a beauty sponge or your favourite foundation brush.
The packaging of this Stick Foundation is adorable! A beautiful pink nude frosted plastic with rose gold detailing, so gorgeous. These were actually larger than I had expected too. The shade number is clearly printed on the bottom of the product, so it is easy to tell them apart if you have a more than one shade to use like I do. It twists to reveal the foundation, and there is a decent amount of product in these for a stick foundation. While other more expensive brands may contain more product in theirs, for £5.00 – yes £5.00 – the amount of product in this is exceptional value.
I think the most exciting feature of the Makeup Revolution Fast Base Stick Foundation is the shade range. There are 18 shades to choose from! Finding your perfect match is easy with the detailed descriptions of the undertones, and at the ridiculously affordable price I chose 4 different shades (F2, F4, F6 & F8) to alternate depending on whether I have tanned or to use to bronze or define. The massive shade range is incredible for such an affordable brand, especialliay compared to others creating products in usually 6-8 shades.

So the big question, is it actually any good? To test this out I used all 4 shades I have in different areas of my face so as to also try to define and bronze, and blended half with a brush and half with a beauty sponge. This is a pretty full coverage foundation, so try not to literally paint yourself with it as you may end up with a cake face! Start with less and add more as you need. The product goes on smoothly and glides across the skin, and to be honesty I didn’t notice much difference between using a brush or a beauty sponge. If anything I found it easier to blend with the brush compared to a sponge being my usual choice, but there really wasn’t a lot in it. The product does tend to dry fairly quickly, so i would recommend applying in sections and blending as you go.
The finish I absolutely love. Full coverage (without looking like a mask), and leaving a gorgeous dewy glow. Usually I would use a setting powder, but I enjoyed the finish so much I just powdered around my eyes where I tend to crease and slightly on the t-zone to avoid getting too oily but to keep the skin glowing. It did ever so slightly cling a little to dry patches, but dampening the brush or sponge and dabbing over the top smoothed this out immediately.
Overall, I love it. Definitely worth the hype. A gorgeous product in gorgeous packaging, and so darn cheap! I think this would work perfectly with the Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer, which comes in the matching 18 shades plus more!
Makeup Revolution Fast Base Stick Foundation has just reinforced the brands wonderful reputation, and this is yet another new product from them to become a definite favourite of mine! Well Done Makeup Revolution!!
