IN-DEPTH: Conceal & Define Foundation

Welcome to another IN-DEPTH review! Today I am going to giving my full honest review of the new Conceal & Define foundation from Revolution. Now we all know the concealer was a hit and I am still using it! I needed a new foundation so I thought I would give this a try. For only £9, it’s under a pound cheaper than my holy grail at the moment, Rimmel Match Perfection. 


To start off with the packaging is gorgeous! I love the glass bottle and the shiny label. It feels weighted in your hand which to me means they took time and effort for the packaging as it feels luxurious. They even frosted the glass which is a big win in the presentation of the bottle.

When opening up the foundation, I knew the doe foot applicator was big but I didn’t think it was this big! It applies really easily to the face and covers a lot more and you don’t have to use a brush to apply it. I recommend putting it on your hand though as you could put dirt from your face back into the bottle. I think the applicator is great and it is a good way to get the foundation at the bottom out.

I decided to swatch test the foundation against Match Perfection on my tattoo to see which covers it up more. I already know that MP is not a full coverage foundation but compared to C&D, it looks very sheer coverage. This was with two swipes of both foundations. I really love the coverage that Conceal & Define gives. For such a cheap foundation, I didn’t think it would do much.

Onto to the wear of the foundation. I do like the look of it on my skin. The shade I chose is a bit too pink for me and I think that’s because I ordered online and didn’t go into a store.  Although it is on the pink side, it still provides good coverage for my skin and hides the discolouration from parts of my face. I really do like this foundation but I think I need to get a different shade. 

The only thing I found that was annoying was on the first couple of wears, it clung to some of my dry patches. It didn’t look the best and it was like it didn’t want to move from there. After starting to moisturise my face, it didn’t do that so I would be careful if you don’t use primer/moisturiser because it can stick to dry patches.

Overall I think for the price of this foundation, it is a good choice. The coverage is really good, the shade range is good and it looks pretty on the skin. 


Have you tried this foundation? If so, what are your thoughts on it?
