If you’ve been reading the beauty section of my blog regularly, you’ll know that when it comes to drugstore make-up, Make-Up Revolution by TAM Beauty were my go-to.
TAM Beauty have recently re-branded themselves as Revolution Beauty and released some new face products which have been taking the make-up world by storm.

Both of these were really hard to get my hands on – they’ve been selling out in every store pretty much straight away.
I had never used a stick foundation before I bought this one, so I was curious to see if it would perform as well as my liquid foundations. The shade I use is “F2” – it’s the second lightest shade in the collection and it’s for fair skin with a yellow undertone. There are 18 different shades available at the moment, and they’ve said that they plan to add more to suit even more different skin tones.
This foundation provides medium-to-full coverage – which is amazing for its £5.00 price tag! I always like to have a drugstore foundation which I can use day-to-day for work. I don’t do a full face of make-up every day and I hate wasting my high-end foundation on work.
A stick foundation is much easier to bring along when you’re travelling too, especially when it comes to flying.
In terms of the formula, it’s very creamy and easy to blend out. The stick itself is pretty small but don’t be fooled by its size, as a little bit of the product goes a long way. One layer is all you need and it feels light as a feather on your skin.
I’ve found that it applies best with a sponge or with the Revolution Beauty Silicone Teardrop as they give the best finish.

The shade I used is “C1” – which is for fair skin with a neutral undertone. It is the lightest shade available. I like my concealers to be at least one shade lighter than my foundation so that it brightens up my eyes when applied. When it comes to applying my concealer, I usually use the Real Techniques Sponge.
Lots of bloggers and beauty influencers have compared this to the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer, so this could be a good drugstore alternative for a tiny £4.00!
I know I risk sounding completely over the top when I’m talking about this product but it REALLY is that good. The coverage is amazing, and unlike most concealers, it doesn’t crease or cake when it sets.
You can see from my swatches that the two go really well together – and the F2 and C1 combination works a treat for me.
Overall I would highly recommend both of these Revolution Beauty products. When you can get them both for less than £10.00, surely it would be rude not to?!
I would genuinely spend £20.00 on each of these and still think I was getting a great deal – the results are that good.
As you can see, Revolution Beauty have really upped their packaging game to reflect the quality of their new products too. I know aesthetics aren’t everything – but they do help to draw you in!
Try them out for yourselves – and don’t forget to let me know what you think!
