A £5 FOUNDATION STICK?! | IS IT ANY GOOD?



 Well hello there!
I am finally getting to post this today, I would have posted this last week but I had a delay with the delivery but hey ho we are here now. Makeup Revolution are absolutely KILLING IT at the moment, the amount of new products they have released lately is insane. So first they released the conceal & define concealer which blew up everywhere and everyone and their mum knows about it. Now they have released a foundation stick that is only £1 more expensive then the concealer??? Sorry what! That is so cheap for a foundation. It is an easy-to-apply stick formula melts into skin, blending seamlessly to leave a fresh and dewy finish. I got mine in the shade F1 which is the lightest shade (standard procedure), and the foundations come in 18 shades just like the concealer.

Packaging
They are really bringing out this nude matte packaging that I really like, then the text and once you open the lid it is a shiny copper colour which is really pretty. This foundation stick is super travel friendly, as it is smaller than my hand so you would be able to take this anywhere without it taking up too much space. It is very lightweight as well so you can tell it is a cheaper product but that does not matter and doesn't affect the quality of the product. I have shown in the picture how much product you get, there is 0.218 oz which I think is just below the average amount you get in a standard foundation.

Application
It is incredibly creamy which I love, and it is very easy to apply. It blends out like a dream and gives a beautiful dewy finish. It feels very lightweight on my skin, and you don't need as much product as you think because it distributes evenly across your skin. As my skin can get oily I did have to matte it down with some powder, and after I did that it still looked nice on my skin.

Longevity
Just to let you know if you don't already know that I have a combination skin type - my t-zone is super oily but the rest of my face especially under my eyes is really dry. This lasted around 6 hours on me and then my redness started to poke through, which is not too bad considering the formula of this foundation. The one thing I will say as well is that by the end of the day my face was fully dewy again.

Opinion
The main things I love about this foundation is how easy and quick it is to apply and the fact that it is only a fiver. I don't think I would wear this to work again, purely because I have not got the time to touch up with a matte powder a couple of times in the day. However, if I had a day event or just wanted to put on make up for a bit I would definitely wear this again, on a day where I know I can touch up. The formula of this foundation is definitely the easiest I have ever tried, it takes minimal effort and hardly any time whatsoever. This shade F1 is perfect for my skin tone so if you are more on the pale side, as always the lightest shade will be best for you. 

So that was my review on the new Makeup Revolution Foundation Stick.
Thank you  so much for reading,
