Makeup Revolution – Review and 1st Impressions

March 29, 2018

Makeup Revolution, originally a Superdrug brand, has recently exploded onto the beauty scene with the launch of their new products. The release of their Conceal and Define concealer has created a huge buzz in the beauty community for being comparable to Tarte’s best selling Shape Tape concealer. Without slowing down, they followed up with the release of a brand new stick foundation- Fast Base Foundation stick.

They have also released new eyeshadow palettes, highlighters and face products which include beauty influencer collaborations. Basically, they have massively upped their game! I managed to get a hold of some of their products and let me tell you this, I’m so excited to play around with them!

Makeup Revolution

I got a few of foundation sticks, concealers, Sophx collaboration eyeshadow and highlighter palettes a lip kit and finally a foil eyeshadow. My shades were sold out in Superdrug so I managed to order all of the products on Revolutionbeauty

Tthe foundations &  concealers



They have a wide shade range to choose from in both the foundation and concealer which is commendable. In the foundation sticks, I got shades F6, F7, F8, and F10. In the concealer, I got shades C7, C8, C9. From the swatches below, you can see that most of the colors are quite pink and neutral. I usually like my foundations and concealers on the olive, yellow side. Both foundation and concealers are quite opaque, creamy and blend easily.


 The foundation

The shade that matched me was F10 – it was more neutral than I would like. The foundations are creamy, go on really easily and have a medium coverage. The foundation has a dewy/natural finish and can be built up to full coverage. I love how this blended into and sat on my skin. My skin still looked like skin and the foundation didn’t sink into my smile lines. Have tried it for about a week and I absolutely love it!

The concealer

This is where the Makeup Revolution hype got started, the concealer that is described as the “new” Shape Tape. The shades that I used under my eyes after colour correcting are C7 and C8. The consistency of this concealer is lighter compared to Shape Tape which means it’s not as opaque. It blends it beautifully but doesn’t fully dry down so needs to be set with powder. I would use it again but I wouldn’t necessarily say it would replace my favorite Maybelline Age Rewind concealer.

Sophx Eyeshadow palette

This makeup palette is a collaboration with Sophdoesnails on YouTube. The palette looks absolutely beautiful! The colours are very unique and the balance between the foil and matte colours is great. Plus, the fact that it has amazing transition shades, brow highlight shades, AND a black is a huge plus! Check out the swatches below,

The foils are of course gorgeous and pigmented but the mattes are frankly a little hit and miss. Some are hard to build up and some are chalky, whereas some are beautiful. What I liked about this palette the most is the unique blend of colours especially the rosy pink colours. It’s feminine and so lovely for spring. A lovely personal touch was that each eyeshadow was given a name, something that isn’t usually found in a drugstore palette.

Sophx Highlight Palette

Again the range of highlighter shades in this palette is beautiful. There are some gorgeous bold shades including a blue and pink but also lovely subtle and wearable shades. They are definitely opaque when you swatch them and blend well.
