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.

Conceals my imperfections!
I wouldn't buy this again

The foundation was too watery and the color oxidized after blending
Trish from Casselberry, Fl
I have combo skin but fall to winter it gets super dry. I love how easy this was to spread on my face. A little goes a long way. Super hydrating which I love. Picked the perfect shade on first try. It's also light weight and non cake feeling, which I dislike that others can see I'm wearing foundation. So it's definitely a plus.
I'm 51 and use this every day- amazing coverage
51 year old beauty from Arlington, TX
Love it- great hydration this is my 3rd purchase I have used many more expensive brands and bought this on a whim. I love it!
The Shade matches perfectly but the formula is terrible
Tara from Jackson, Tn
Being pale with red undertones, it is so hard for me to find a foundation that isn't too yellow. This foundation gave me that. However it was sticky and it clung to my dry spots on my face like white on rice.
The best foundation I have ever used
Rose from CT
This is my new holy grail foundation. Such an amazing deal for such a low price & you get so much foundation in the bottle. This performs far better than any other product I have ever used. It is full coverage but you need such a little amount and it blends in to look like "my skin but better". I don't think I will ever switch to another foundation
Pretty Great So Far
C. from Chicago, IL
Really enjoying this foundation. Lightweight, stays well in place, and nicely blurring. I only apply a small amount to cover the redness on my cheeks/chin (prime a brush with it and then do sort of spot-foundation-ing) and it's been doing a great job. I was looking for a drugstore foundation that's a little longer lasting and less expensive than my Josie Maran foundation. Originally I tried Revlon Colorstay in the normal/dry formula, but that settled in my pores and looked super patchy. Then I tried the UnDone concealer and that was patchy too! For reference, foundations that look nice on a lot of people end up looking chalky and just not great on me (Nyx drops, tried the Gressa foundation which is supposed to be similar to Luminous Silk, even Neutrogena HydroBoost looked off). Happy to have found this one. Got the shade F5 and it looks pretty spot on for my light neutral (sensitive, dry) complexion.
Transfer transfer transfer
Kiki girl from Ca
The product was very thin, which to me was a good thing. I can't stand the thick feeling. The main problem, it never dries?? I went to the gym after and rested my head on a bench... makeup everywhere. Tried it again thinking I was just sweaty, went out to dinner rested my head on my hand makeup all over. Not the best foundation especially with mask transfer.
MM from Tennessee
First let me say if you have a yellow or olive tone to your skin DO NOT BUY! This foundation is PINK! No matter what shade you get, it's pink. Next, it has so much perfume in it I could still smell it on my skin after I washed it off. It also doesn't blend with a brush or sponge. I'm super disappointed because I like this brand very much. Also, I have dry skin and finding a good dewy foundation is such a struggle. The fact that I like the brands other stuff is the only thing keeping me from giving it 1 star.
Love this product
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.
