The £5 foundation // Makeup Revolution // Fast Base

Hello darlings.

Makeup Revolution have done it again, they have brought out another 'break the internet' product and i'm so happy to have finally got my hands on it. I know they launched Fast Base Stick Foundation online about a month ago but i wanted to swatch the shades in store before i purchased one, so i waited till they were stocked in Superdrug. I'm not gonna lie ive not tried a stick foundation before, so i don't have any to compare it to. I have dry skin so i wasn't sure how this was gonna sit on my skin, but for £5 i thought why not give it a chance! I have it in the shade F1 which is the lightest, so here are my thoughts!

What it claims: 
Foundation just got faster! Launching in 18 shades and a range of undertones, Fast Base Foundation quickly perfects, contours and highlights your complexion. The easy-to-apply stick formula melts into skin, blending seamlessly to leave a fresh and dewy finish. Twist up, swipe on and blend out with fingers, a beauty sponge or your favourite foundation brush.
Packaging: Its a simple pale nude tube, when you take the lid off the tube underneath is gold which is very pretty. You get 6g of product which i think is a good amount for £5, but as i mentioned i don't own any other stick foundation to compare it to. But googling it the Anastasia Beverly Hill Stick Foundation has 9.1g for £25 so 6g for £5 is really good.

Shades: So far there are 18 shades, which is pretty impressive, i have F1. I know they've launched more shades for the concealer so i wouldn't be surprised if they launch more for the foundation sticks. In the description on their website it describes each shade to you so its really easy to find a shade that matches you, really useful!
F1 – For fair skin tones with neutral undertone 
F2 – For fair skin tones with yellow undertone 
F3 – For fair skin tones with pink undertone 
F4 – For light skin tones with neutral undertone 
F5 – For light skin tones with pink undertone 
F6 – For light/medium skin tones with yellow undertone 
F7 – For medium skin tones with peach undertone 
F8 – For medium skin tones with yellow undertone 
F9 – For medium skin tones with a peach undertone 
F10- For medium skin tones with a golden undertone 
F11 – For medium/dark skin tones with a beige undertone 
F12 – For medium/dark skin tones with a neutral undertone 
F13 – For dark skin tones with a warm undertone 
F14 – for dark skin tones with a cool undertone 
F15 – for dark skin tones with a neutral undertone 
F16 – for dark skin tones with a warm undertone 
F17 – for dark skin tones with a neutral undertone 
F18 – for dark skin tones with a warm undertone
Applying it: I apply a small amount at a time and then blend it. I like to do it in sections in case it dries and then i can't blend it. Doing it this way really worked and it blended really well. 

Coverage: The coverage is light /medium to me, i do think its buildable. I think its a really good coverage for every day wear.  It feels really nice and light on the skin. 

Finish: Its very much a satin/dewy finish, if you like a matte foundation this is not for you. This foundation has a very dewy finish, it is described as a satin, but on my skin its not. It makes my skin look very glowy. I do use powder on top just to set it as i do with all my foundations.
Longevity: It lasted on my skin without touching up for about 12 hours, so i'm pretty impressed. 

Price: £5! how could you go wrong, its crazy cheap. You can buy it here


I'd love to know have you tried this foundation?

  1. This sounds great! Did you find it clung to dry spots? I've got a bit of eczema and I find it hard to find a foundation that doesn't highlight it more! I love make up revolution, you cant really go wrong with them, especially for a fiver.

    1. I found the first layer didn't but the more i built it up the more it started to cling! But i normally only apply one layer and maybe a little extra under my eye. :)

  2. I wanted to pick this up today, but they didn't have F1 left, so I've had to wait! It sounds like a really great foundation!xx
