Trying foundation lightening mixers has to be one of my favourite beauty discoveries as they’ve totally revolutionised my foundation and concealer game. I have spent hundreds of pounds on different foundations and concealers only to discover that they’re too dark for my skintone, but foundation mixers mean I can still use products which are too dark for me, thus saving me money in the long run. The newest addition to my collection is the Revolution Pro Lightening Foundation Mixer £6, which I bought after loving the Revolution Pro Foundation Drops.
“Custom fit your base with Revolution PRO Foundation Mixers. The ultra lightweight, water-based formula mixes seamlessly with Revolution PRO Foundation Drops and most other foundations. Lightening corrects too-dark foundations, tinted moisturisers and concealers. Mix a few drops as needed into your favourite base products.“
I’ve tried different foundation mixers such as the MUA Foundation Mixer, the NYX Pro Foundation Drops, and the Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer in C0 and they tend to either lean quite neutral or cool in tone.
I didn’t need another foundation mixer but I loved the Revolution Pro Foundation Drops as they leave a beautiful satin finish on the skin, and they’re flattering on my dry skin so I knew I’d like the Lightening version of the drops especially for mixing with my Foundation Drops as I have the shade F1 which is is a little too dark for my skintone.
I’ve includes swatches of the Revolution Pro Lightening Foundation Mixer alone, and mixed with the Makeup Revolution Concealer so you could see what it looks like straight from the bottle, and mixed.
The shade is very cool toned, so much so it’s almost a very pale pink which I could genuinely probably get away with using straight from the bottle as I am so pale. I have a mixing palette which I bought from eBay for only £1.99 from a UK seller, which comes with a spatula, so I can mix my shades on the palette rather than the back of my hand which is more hygienic.
I tend to need two drops per one pump of foundation, but by mixing on a palette it means it goes further as none of it absorbs onto my hand. In addition to the Lightening Mixer, there’s also a Darkening version, an Orange version and an Illuminating version all of which are £6, and they’re so handy to have in your collection.
I’m able to use these drops with foundation and concealer, even if they’re two or three shades deeper than my skintone, so I’m able to use any base products now without worrying about finding a good shade match.
