This week I attended the launch party for Make up Revolutions new inclusive campaign featuring the Conceal & Define Full Coverage Foundation. To me Make Up Revolution have always been a really inclusive brand in terms of diversity but this is the very first time I have seen them include age in the targeted audience, interesting - that brands really are beginning to sit up and see us as an audience, we have seen quite a lot of inclusion this last year and now it is the turn of MUR. 

Also at the launch was the promotion of the now super sized Conceal & Define Concealer, which for many will be a god send as this concealer really does work, even on my tired old wrinkles.

Lets start this by saying what not many people know, Make Up Revolution are both Cruelty Free and Vegan!  which in this day and age is important, and I think that brands should shout from the rooftops when their product is.  Superdrug who feature Make Up Revolution heavily also do their own brand Cruelty Free Vegan.
The Foundation comes in a good looking ( as always) glam rose gold packaging, it has a chunky doe foot applicator for easy application, oil free and comes in 24 shades that are all mixable and blendable so easy to get the perfect shade match. I have tested this foundation out over a couple of days, and anyone who follows ltd on Instagram would have seen me do close up shots of the foundation in place on day one.  I have to be honest and say it wasn't an immediate hit for me, I think possibly on the first time round I used too much of the product with a foundation brush,  it looked dry, thick and cakey, it highlighted every line and wrinkle I didn't even know I had, I cleansed and tried again, this time with a much lighter application using both primer and a beauty blender, it was better, however I still found that it sat in lines after a short while so wasn't a hit, I tried again adding a little facial oil hoping the oil would stop the foundation sinking into the lines, that didn't work, it disrupted the formula and broke apart.  I am sad to say that as much as I love a lot of Make Up Revolution products, my palette collection is testament to that.  If however I were back in my twenties or thirties it would have been 100% perfect, full coverage all the way.

I am not by any means saying this is a bad product or that it won't work for mature skin, it just sadly didn't work for me, my teen grandaughter loves it, my daughter in her twenties is enjoying it, and my grandaughter who is also in her twenties is loving it for covering breakouts.
