The Revolution Pro CC Cream Perfecting Foundation SPF30 is such a buzzed about foundation right now. I featured the Revolution Pro CC Cream Perfecting Foundation on my second blog, and it’s one of my most read posts over the last couple of months, so I figured it was time I gave it a try.
Revolution Pro CC Cream Perfecting Foundation
I’ve not had the best of experiences when it comes to Revolution foundations, and as I’d had such experiences, I told myself I wouldn’t purchase any more of their base products as they just don’t work for me. The Conceal and Define Foundation gave me awful cystic breakouts, and their Fast Base Stick foundation was like swiping a stick of paint over the face.
The only base product of theirs I’ve enjoyed is the Revolution Pro Foundation Drops, and it’s one of my all-time favourite foundations, so I had a little more hope that I’d perhaps like the Revolution Pro CC Cream Perfecting Foundation.
The Revolution Pro CC Cream Perfecting Foundation is being labelled as being a dupe for the IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream, as the packaging is extremely similar, as are the claims, so I’m guessing it was intentional on Revolution’s part.
The new foundation is £10 but it only contains 26ml which is one of the smallest volumes I’ve ever seen in a foundation. It’s not as if Revolution have copied IT Cosmetics CC Cream and their product volume, as they have 32ml in their tube. So it’s crazy they’ve given 4ml less than their other foundations, yet this is their most expensive foundation to date.
“Makeup That Does More. The most hard-working, multipurpose foundation. Perfect for dry to combination skin, this Revolution Pro CC Cream Perfecting Foundation SPF30 offers sheer to full buildable coverage, whilst leaving the skin hydrated and protected.
Containing hyaluronic acid & collagen, this multitasking foundation will protect the skin whilst evening out the skintone with the infusion of anti oxidants (vitamin E) that helps to reduce any redness. Plus the formula will work to diffuse the appearance of wrinkles whilst offering long lasting coverage that doesn’t feel cakey or heavy on the skin.
Featuring a luxurious gold compressible tube with a pump dispenser for quick, fuss-free application with zero waste.“
I bought the Revolution Pro CC Cream Perfecting Foundation in the shade F0.5 which is the shade I use in all the foundations and concealers, and F0.5 is much darker than any of the other F0.5 shades.
This foundation contains SPF30 and foundations with SPF are known for oxidising and making shades darker, so I did expect there to be a little difference, but it’s like it’s a completely different shade altogether. So I’d perhaps go one shade lighter than you’d normally choose, otherwise you might find the foundation to be too dark for you.
If you have oily skin, I really don’t think you’d enjoy this foundation. It’s very shiny and almost looks a little greasy, so I can only make this foundation work for me by using a mattifying pore perfecting primer like the Benefit POREfessional, otherwise I end up looking way too shiny.
The coverage is really decent though, and I can see why some really like it, but it’s not a foundation I enjoy, especially with the shade oxidising so much once on the skin. So I’ll stick to my Revolution Pro Foundation Drops, as it’s so much better quality.
