Finding a super pale, drugstore foundation without a strong yellow undertone is pretty much mission impossible. I've spent a ridiculous amount of money over the years buying foundations that I thought were pale enough, only to discover that they're in fact much too dark for my pale skintone. Pale skin isn't a rarity.. lots of people have pale skin, so I just don't understand why brands don't create truly pale foundations? The Makeup Revolution Ultra Face Base Foundation is available in an impressive eleven shades.. I can't even name a drugstore brand that has eleven shades in their range?! Not only are there eleven shades, they even have pink tone, mid tone and yellow tone options within the shades which is incredible. The palest shade is 02 Pink Tone which is without a doubt the best foundation shade match I've ever found from drugstore and high-end brands and it costs only £3. I just can't believe how good a shade match this is for my skintone. If you have very pale skin like mine then I urge you try this shade of foundation, I guarantee you'll be blown away by how pale it actually is.
The Makeup Revolution Ultra Face Base Foundation £3* is described as being an high coverage, easily blendable foundation. It claims to have BB Cream high coverage qualities that is suitable for all skin types and is long lasting. The consistency of this foundation is very thick and almost identical to the Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation, and just like Skin Base, is best applied with your fingers as a brush leaves brush strokes. It's important to apply this foundation over a silicone based primer to help the foundation blend into the skin better, otherwise it does have the tendency to sink into pores and cling onto dry patches. The foundation claims to have an high coverage which I'd have to disagree with.. even though it's very thick, it doesn't cover blemishes or acne scarring very well so I have to use quite a bit of concealer in the areas I need extra coverage.
If you like a light-medium coverage foundation with a radiant finish then I'd really recommending trying this foundation. I would love, love, love for Makeup Revolution to create a fuller coverage foundation in this exact shade as it's such a perfectly pale shade. I'm just so impressed with Makeup Revolution as a brand.. they actually listen to their customers and produce good quality yet affordable products.
