Most Helpful Positive Review Very Nice Foundation!
I absolutely love trying foundations, so after seeing a lot of hype over this foundation after it initially launched, I decided to get it. First off, even though the foundation does come with a standard 1 oz. of product, like most liquid foundations do, it wasn't a major deal with me because of the price being so low. I don't mind it having a doe foot applicator to it, as I find that it makes the foundation very easy to apply overall. This foundation definitely sets to a Demi-matte finish, so setting it with powder is a definite must. Due to the first ingredient in this foundation, which is a common ingredient in a lot of foundations, you will get a noticeable type of scent that reminds me of the Wet n Wild foundation. However, the scent become faint after you apply it onto your face, and I don't notice it at all after a a short while, so it's not a scent that lingers throughout the day okay. The shade that I use is #10, and it works fine for me, but I have seen that the line has launched new shades on their actual websites, so I do plan to try the shade 9.5 in the future, to see jut how that will match me as well. In regards to the foundations lasting power, it all has to do with the powder that you use to set it with. Because, all setting powders definitely aren't created the same, so if your regular setting powder doesn't work best with this foundation then try another one. For this foundation go wear all day on me without even needing any touch ups, I set it with Ben Nye's Banana Powder. And, the foundation stats flawless on me all day until I take it off.
I like that I can get medium-to-full coverage with it, however, I still do apply concealer around my eye area for extra coverage and for eyeshadow priming as well. Also, I do feel that this foundation is great to use for any occasion, as it performs really well, and I really happen to like the type of bottle packaging that it comes in as well.
Most Helpful Critical Review Really let down
Let me start by saying that I love and use the Estee Lauder Doublewear Stay-in-place foundation typically. BUT, I have been searching for a cheaper option to use for everyday purposes, due to the price increases on the Estee Lauder Doublewear line. I just Can not afford to buy it religiously. So... I bought this foundation after reading excellent reviews on this site as well as others, and loved to hear that many were comparing it to the Tarte Shape Tape foundation. I have oily skin and read that this foundation has a pretty, matte finish and helps control oil. Well... I have had no luck after a week of use, using different primers and setting techniques, hoping to find a good combo. (I apply it to my skin with the doe foot applicator then buff it out with a buffing foundation brush, to get the best coverage.) Nothing has worked to keep this foundation from breaking down around my nose and T-zone, where I get oiliest throughout the day. It settles in creases and lines throughout the day and oxidizes on my skin, also. I also have had quite a few large, painful breakouts since I've started using this foundation. With all of this said, I will be returning the product.

I finally found a perfect match for my skin tone !! I adore this foundation.
Best affordable Foundation
Crysta from Ky
I have really bad rosacea and can never find anything to actually cover the redness up without getting cakey. I normally wear Maybelline fit me and I do like it but this was so much better. I have never let anyone see me without foundation but this picture is with Makeup Revolution and the other side nothing. Also I have no primer, moisturizer or anything under the foundation.
Anahi from Pearland tx
It's not a lie! It covers up everything! Just make sure you get your right shade of color or else you will have to mix two or three to make it your color. But for me it the best it cover acne, roseacea it works perfectly!

I love it!
Me from Long Beach, CA
I have never put on a foundation and immediately loved it until now. I bought F7 and it is perfect for me. It is a matte finish that has endured all day long.
Money well spent
Ljay from FL
This was a delightful surprise, a soft light buildable matte finish, that dries quickly and blends well with other foundations and concealers. You cannot beat this for the price the performance is impressive lasted all day at barely a medium coverage application. My only concern would be that it can dry and look a bit flaky if you don't properly moisturize beforehand. Otherwise a solid product.😉
I would not buy again.
EmilySketchy from Wesley Chaple, FL
I do not recommend this product. It left streaks on my face. Does not blend well.
Andi from FL
I used this foundation on my wedding day and it looked beautiful in photos and in real life. I take my time when applying: use applicator just for a section of my face, then blend out with sponge. Taking it section by section helped with drying and made it blend amazing. Packaging is pretty, F4 was my perfect shade match, overall I'm really happy with this product. All my other makeup sat amazingly on top of it. Looked good from 3PM-3AM! Drugstore is really stepping it up.
Not full coverage
Mallin from Utah
I don't mess around with foundation. I want it to be FULL coverage and this ain't it. Smelled like paint... not a fan.
This product warrants a review...
Elizabethj from New York
I dont write many reviews. But this foundation is so spectacularly bad, im writing one. I usually buy at least 1 foundation from just about every brand out there. I love trying new foundations. This is HANDS DOWN THE WORST FOUNDATION I HAVE EVER TRIED.
First and foremost, this is an extremely heavy formula that sits on top of your face like a mask and emphasizes texture and fine lines to the max. I have oily skin with small pores and very minimal fine lines. This foundation instantly aged my skin by at least 5 years. Im convinced it has formaldehyde in it, its so thick and cakey. Its hard to blend out even with a super soft beauty blender....dont even get me started on a foundation brush. The brush makes it super streaky and uneven. Other products like blush and highlight do not lay nicely on top of it.. It also pills worse than any product I've used recently. Its just really thick and awful and makes you look old and ugly. I wouldn't even give this away, its going in the garbage.
I would buy this product again!!!!

Looks very flawless on my skin
Updated review: still not the best but..
MT from NAPA, CA
This foundation exaggerates e v e r y t h i n g BUT if you don't use too much and with the correct primer you may be able to make this foundation work for you. It all depends on application (USE A BRUSH) and your skin type. DRY SKIN STAY FAR AWAY, oily skin this one is for you... but try other foundations first.
Smells like paint and is slightly cakey
xxkimberk from Kent, WA
The undertones were super helpful and I was hoping this foundation would be it for me. However, smells like paint and can become very cakey in my problem areas. I also feel that the foundation shows a lot of texture, even after I moisturize, prime and put down a light layer of powder. I will say a pro is that with my oily areas, the foundation hasn't separated!
wouldn't buy again
Moe from Texas
I didn't like this foundation at all. It smells really bad and made my skin look like I had all these dry patches all over my face.
I would and have bought this product again and again
Lissette from Wesley Chapel, Florida
I use this foundation everyday. Although with masks one cannot see my makeup, I still wear and love this product. Matte finish and very little rubs off on my mask. I wear this for 12 hours a day.
Kait the Leopard Ctenopoma Lady from MA
I use this with a serum, an oil-absorbing sunscreen and the revolution beauty powder. I had a very easy time figuring out my shade and I am so thankful for that! This works very nicely, I use it as a concealer. A little goes a long way, and on top of that you get a ton of it. I don't do a full face of glam everyday, mostly just cover up the ol' acne scars, so comparing this to my last concealer from the drugstore is like night and day. I feel the quality for the price is fantastic.

Accentuated all my fine lines and pores!
Kenz from Pittsburgh PA
I wanted to try this foundation because it was so hyped up online. I don't like it at all. I had to try 3 shades before I found a similar match. Not to mention it makes me skin look horrible. I don't have time to run to the store and keep making exchanges so I just kept it. Only bad if you have dry skin. I wasn't aware that they had a hydrating foundation as well. If you have dru skins def go with the hydrating
pau from tx
light coverage. not full at all. idk i just don't like it
🐈 from Heck
Usually like most things from M.R but lord this isn't it. It sinks into pores, settles into any spot that might be dry, clings to little peachy hairs, and shows all your flaws- even after I used a liberal amount of my go to primer. It made me a slight tint of orange. The more you build it up the wackier you get. Get your clown nose on after you put this on.
Amazing all in one concealer and foundation.
Lauren from OR
Worked flawlessly all day for me
tommi from nevada
i've had this foundation for quite some time now, and i've tried to do various techniques to try and like the product but every time i get the same end result. the foundation applies cakey and it feels super heavy on the skin . and when i got it, i thought i really loved it, it has great coverage but after wearing it for not even 2 hours it starts breaking down . it transfers like crazy and just doesn't last that long, i have combination skin, but i don't get a crazy amount of oils, but within an hour they are already starting to show through the foundation . overall the price point is great, but the product itself just isn't worth it in my opinion.
:) from MI
A little cakey if you put to much on but other then that it's really good!!
It blends beautifully with a brush. And seriously lasts!
Certified Alienist from Gypsy, WV
I love this product. It does not wipe away or sit on top of skin when buffed out with a brush. It also blends perfectly. I bought a darker shade, intentionally, and I have no streaks or rub off. It's remarkable!
