Short for time? Revolution Fast Base makeup stick foundation gives great coverage in just a few minutes
Apply your foundation in a flash with Revolution Fast Base foundation. The makeup stick foundation has a creamy texture that has been designed to quickly conceal any imperfections with a melt into the skin formula. It will leave your looking fresh with a dewy finish. Available in 18 shades the foundation has been adapted to suit the unique undertones of your skin, whether you have fair skin with yellow undertones or dark skin with cool undertones there’s a shade for you.
Whilst the shade range is not as huge as some products, Revolution have done quite well in producing a good range of shades to suit most tones and skin types. Typically I’m used to applying liquid foundations so it was quite a change to use a cream foundation. I applied several spots on to my face and then blended it into my skin. It initially felt a little sticky before blending but was easy to blend and felt fine once fully applied. The foundation was okay at covering general redness and blemishes but I needed to use a separate concealer to fully cover my dark circles. Whilst the finish is supposed to be dewy, I felt it left my skin looking oily, especially in my t-zone. After I applied George compact powder however I was able to tone down the oiliness and it looked a little bit more matte.
Revolution Fast Base foundation has pretty good staying power and I still had reasonable coverage by late evening. It did however accentuate certain patches of dry skin and made my forehead look and feel really oily. It isn’t isn’t my favourite Revolution foundation and I prefer Revolution Pro Foundation Drops for its seamless coverage and airbrushed feel. I probably wouldn’t recommend Fast Base for those with oily skin but if your skin type is normal it has good staying power and overall coverage.
I give it 2/5

- If you have oily skin it accentuates this and leaves your skin feeling greasy
