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.

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!
This foundation goes on well, but doesn't blend in well
Jenni from Iowa
I wanted a hydrating foundation that doesn't soak into all my lines/wrinkles but this sits on my face and just feels greasy even with a finishing powder.
Do not recommend
Eh from Louisville my
I purchased this hoping to find a new holy grail. This left me so shined I thought I was a hologram lol I looked very oily and I have normal to dry skin. I mixed it with several other matte foundations and also used a setting powder and nothing helped.
Solved the issues I had with the conceal and define
Cat from Arkansas
I was previously using MUR's conceal and define but had issues with it creasing and settling into fine lines. I haven't had any of those problems with this formula. It has a nice range of undertones too.
Not for mature skin
AmyM from KY
Creased pretty noticeable
Love love love
Honeydip from New Orleans, LA
I was looking for a dewy foundation for a cheaper price and wowwww I'm in love. It's buildable enough for full coverage but light enough for just a pick-me-up. This foundation doesn't break me out even after sweating in this southern weather! Would buy again and would use forever.
I love this
chaos from GA
easy to apply and stays on for hours
Nice wear time. If dryer skin, moisturizer well it can feel.
Tinytitan50 from Oregon
I enjoy this foundation, I'm 60 with normal/dehydrated skin and it works well for me. Wear time is good, 8-10 hours.
I love this product!
irol from Sellersburg,In.
I use this product everyday!
Sarabear from Mississippi
I have bad acne scars and red spots all over my cheeks. This will cover any thing! I usually crease bad on my forehead and in my smile lines because I have very dehydrated skin. NOT WITH THIS!! I have found it's best to apply on face directly and blend it out that way instead of putting it on another surface. I usually use my eco tools brush and then go over with a sponge if I feel I need sone moisture.
Olive from LA
Okay, so I understand why everyone is so upset about the coverage. If you are expecting this to be JUST like the original conceal and define but hydrating, you're wrong. Don't even buy this foundation. But, I do prefer this one over the original for 4 reasons:
1. It is hydrating the house
2. it has light-light medium coverage
3. THE PACKAGING (it has a pump instead of a doe-foot)
4. It doesn't break me out (and I have VERY sensitive skin and acne prone skin)
I really don't think this would work for oily skin types since it is HYDRATING and it might crease and crack. But for girls with dry skin, this might be your bff. For preference, I have have dry skin and prefer light coverage foundation. I am more of a tinted moisturizer kind of girl. I prefer that because like a lot of dry skin folks, full coverage foundations make my dry patches stand out more and then I look so cakey and gross. This is pretty light coverage, but can build it up to medium. And I like it like that. I don't think you can build it up to full though. I also like that it has a pump, because I felt like with the original, swiping a doe-foot all over my face and over acne and then putting it back in the bottle was so unhygienic. I normally just dotted it on the back of my hand with the doe-foot and then dipped my beauty blender, and bounced it on my face. It was WAY more sanitary but did take a while to do. I like that this has a pump, it is just more convenient. I also have super acne prone skin, and I was SO glad that this didn't break me out because this like my new fav foundation. DEF RECOMMEND
Transfers and slides around too much
DaniMarie from Lexington, KY
Thin and slid around no matter what applicator I used. Tried brush, sponge, my fingers! Nothing helped! I only use a little because it goes a long way. Would not recommend at all.
I would buy this if you are a tan person
Pale one from Canfield ohio
The product is great until I leave my room and it looks so dark on me. Like I said I'm a very pale person and I bought the lightest color they offer. If there was a concealer like the foundation that has lighter colors I would totally buy more.
I will buy this product again
Sin from Houston, Texas
Good coverage, did not end up with "flaky" looking skin after using, as I do with most foundation and concealers.
Emma from Ohio
If you want a full coverage foundation for dry skin. This is it. It's not expensive but it performs so well. I love the pump and that it doesn't have a smell to it!
