Most Helpful Positive Review So much better than any of my high end foundations
I've tested over 100 foundations now and I really loved the Conceal and define but this one is so much better! For starters, thank you Makeup Revolution for adding a pump this time instead of using the doe foot, it's much easier to apply now.
When you put this on you can feel the hyaluronic acid right away since this feels cool and hydrating right away. This blends out so easily and I found that a sponge gives you better coverage over a brush but it pretty much blends in on it's own. It leaves you glow to your skin and does dry down to the touch. I always use powder to set my foundation but I barely had to use any for this. F4 is the perfect shade match for me but this time I went one shade lighter with the concealer and that really lightened up my under eye area and is also hydrating and full coverage.
My skin is normal but can get dry if I don't use a good moisturizer and I think this would be good for all skin types. It looks as good as it did when I applied it at the end of the day too and my other products (bronzer, blush, highlighter, etc) applied perfectly over the top of it. I can't say enough how amazing this looks and feels and you just have to try it for yourself!
Most Helpful Critical Review ACNE PRONE SKIN BEWARE
I never write reviews, but I feel like people need to be aware of when they're buying a product that could potentially cause them weeks of discomfort.
I bought this because I like Makeup Revolution's original formula foundation. I was excited to see they had a hydrating formula out so I picked it up as soon as I saw it! The very first time I wore it, I loved it. My skin was relatively clear and hydrated with just a couple of regular blemishes- nothing crazy. The foundation looked beautiful and blended great. So I wore it again for a few more days.
I noticed I had started breaking out more than usual but I figured I was just getting close to my period, so I blew it off and continued using the foundation.
Within a week, my skin was COVERED in huge, painful, cystic acne breakouts all over my face. It was a type of breakout I have literally never had before in my life. My skin was also drier than I had ever seen it, with huge dry patches that would just flake off. Nothing I have done since then has cleared my skin back up.
I have started using a new foundation and gotten really strict on my skincare to try getting my skin back to normal to no avail.
DO NOT BUY THIS FOUNDATION.

Katy from Pittsburgh
I decided to try this because I need something extra hydrating for fall/winter and it is perfect for me. Coverage is medium to full and I don't feel like I need to add a lot of concealer to my problem areas. A little setting powder on top is nice. I have tried with a primer first and without and I love both!
I love it!!!
Elvia from Nampa
First time I choose the wrong color but the second time around it was perfect sooo happy I tried something new!!
JM from Seattle area
This is my go to drug store price range foundation. I love the finish and long lasting qualities. I am on my forth bottle since discovering this brand.
DO NOT BUY
India from Alabama
I wore this the first two times and it looked horrible
On my skin, and today I wore it to church and used another primer because I thought that may have been the problem considering the fact I have very poreus skin, and when I came back out to get in my car and leave I'm ORANGE!!
ST from California
This foundation's consistency was like water and looked pink
Love it but,
Paige from Texas
Its a really nice light weight foundation but the shade range is horrible. There could be more but the ulta i was at had maybe 6 shades.
Taylor from Wilkes-Barre, PA
I don't know why people are basking this foundation. When I bought it it looked VERY pink in the bottle and on my hand but once I put it on my face it disappeared. I wish it was a little bit more luminous and glowy but my skin looks so nice!
My FAVORITE foundation
Tay from Atlanta, GA
I've been searching for a foundation that I can truly say I love for the longest time. I have tried Clinique, Mac, Two Faced, etc and always ended up settling for one for a couple of months before realizing that it wasn't working for me. Found this one and it's been amazing! I have difficult skin, some areas super, super dry and some very oily and this foundation covers it all! I would recommend to follow it up with a powder of some sort to set it in because it will wipe off easily if not!
Makeup junkie from Kentucky
I've got a wide range of foundations, price wise I've got drugstore and pretty expensive. I thought I'll just give this a go when I was out shopping while waiting for my Kat Von D that I had ordered to come in. I may just stick with this, I mean I am in love with this, it went on great and blended like a dream. I have already recommended this to my friends and will continue to do so!! This might be my new daily use foundation.
Best I've ever had
My new everyday product from Atlanta, GA
I have good skin but dark under eye circles and mainly bought this for the concealer, but this product is PERFECT and I use both the foundation and concealer everyday. I love looking dewy, I don't use highlighter anymore because it's overkill with this. I also find a little of this goes a very long way so use restraint if you're heavy handed. Come winter I get lighter so I'm hoping I can recreate this same magic with a different shade.
Better than any drugstore
Miss. Jo from Maine
I've always used drugstore foundation until I gave this a try. Its coverage is amazing! I use a brush to spread the product and a beauty blender to buff out the lines. I will never go back! Although I havent tried any high end foundations this is by far my favorite.
Yes yes yes!
Bacchante from Alaska
I hate spending a lot on foundation because I seriously think foundation looks bad. Yes, even good foundation. Yes, even applied by a professional. But sometimes I really need something all-over to even my skin tone. But I'm a tough customer. Not only do I low key hate foundation, I'm insanely pale and have insanely sensitive skin. This is a lot like the hydrating shape tape...except it costs a fraction of the price and it doesn't break me out (EVERY Tarte product I have tried does). So it's not just a dupe, it's better. Now it IS a hydrating formula (read: not matte) so most people are going to want to set this with a good powder. I am extremely pleased that the shade range actually meets my needs, and that it didn't oxidize. Be warned: I have a medium toned friend who DID have this oxidize on her. Maybe my lighter shade just doesn't have enough Iron oxide to notice it oxidizing?
Just as good as expensive brands
Sam from Indiana
I have tried many different kinds of foundation. This worked just as well as expensive brands. I have dry skin, but always use a moisturizer before applying with a sponge and it looks great.
The original conceal & define foundation is much better!
Lu from CA
This foundation was terrible. It never dried down, so it needed up not staying in place. I have acne prone combo skin with dry patches. The coverage was not enough to cover my blemishes.
I had already been using the original conceal & define foundation from MR and that one is soo much better!
DONT WASTE THE MONEY
Mia from Philadelphia
I have dry skin, and this sits on top of your skin, even on the makeup brush after finishing my makeup, the product separates. It's so pink, even when you buy one w yellow undertones. this is coming from someone who tries to make products work, this is easily the worst foundation i've ever had.
Mia from Texas
This looks so great at first. After an hour or so, it would turn orange and get very patchy on my skin. It did not stay on my t-zone but clung to the sides of my forehead?
Absolutely the best
Foundation queen from Ohio
Love the coverage how it looks on the skin and the undertone..nothing about this foundation ..highly recommend
Jeanny from Palm Coast, Fl
Gave a try and from far you look flawless but up close it's a literal nightmare. I like to use a brush to buff my foundation and it was streaky and gross
Made my skin a weird texture
Danie from Indianapolis
So this foundation wasn't horrible, but also not great. The first time I used it, it left my skin with a super weird texture around my mouth area. I also found that it didn't seem to hydrate at all and definitely sat on top of the skin rather than blending into it. The next time I used it I exfoliated a ton beforehand and used a lot less foundation and the textured effect was a lot less, but still not great. It felt heavy on the skin and still didn't feel like it was absorbed but rather just sitting on top. I think maybe I just don't have the right skin type for this foundation. I am dry/combo, leaning towards oily after a few hours. I am keeping it around to try again in winter when my skin is much more dry. I will say that the coverage is really good, but it does feel thick and tacky if you build it up and you need a powder to make it not sticky.
I would if employee sold me the right shade
Jessie from Portland ,oregon
I was sold the wrong shade!not happy with that but like the product
Andi from KC
This product is really bad. I have dry skin, so I thought it would be good. It was cakey and a terrible color for me, but because the shade range sucks the next color darker was way too dark and the next lighter color was way too light. I love Revolution makeup, but this missed the mark big time. Don't even bother.
Probably won't repurchase
Anonymous from St Louis
The shade matches me almost perfectly why I'm giving two stars but the foundation gets very patchy in my t zone. Probably will even return this. Don't recommend especially if you have combination skin.
Amazing for Combo/Dry Skin!!
Sarah from Georgia
I have combo/dry skin and was afraid that this would be too dewy, but it's the most hydrating yet full coverage and long lasting foundation!! I have a lot of redness and I can tell if a foundation is long wearing/full coverage if it can cover it, and last through the whole day, and it did! And I only needed like a pump or two, very little!! It did break off around my upper lip/chin area, (but that is my problem area in general, and I was eating) but besides that this foundation is great!! One thing I have to say is the shade range is eh. I have fair/light neutral to pink undertones and the shade F4 is very pink.
My new go to!
Liv from PA
AMAZING! I love this product for my dry skin. It looks flawless and layers beautifully. I rarely even use foundation anymore, I just put this on the spots that make me self conscious and blend. Add blush, highlighter, mascara and brows for a natural look
Selah from MO
Goes on very dewy and smooth! I have sensitive skin and it didn't irritate at all or break me out. It's a little thinner than I thought for being a medium to full coverage foundation, but it's buildable so I still really like it. It gives my face a nice dewy look which is great for summer!
