Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Foundation Review

After getting on so well with the Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define concealer, I was so excited when they released the foundation version!  

It claims to : offer lightweight yet buildable coverage, be oil-free, have a creamy formula that gives a demi-matte finish,  creates an even, airbrushed complexion. 

Packaging : The foundation is in a glass bottle with a doe foot applicator! It's essentially modeled like a giant concealer tub. It's quirky and different and I don't mind it, although it wouldn't be the most hygienic. As you know, pumps are my favorite! 

How does it apply : It applies really evenly with either a brush or beauty sponge. I didn't have any issues with other cream or powder products going onto of the foundation.

Coverage : It is definitely a full coverage foundation. While it claims to be leightweight, I would have to disagree. It's not super heavy but you can definitely feel it on your skin, it almost feels chalky. 

Long lasting : I found it to be very long lasting, it didn't seperate at all, although a few times I noticed it sort of balled up. This I think is more down to my skin type than the foundation itself. I noticed when blending it out that the shade got paler (which I find bizzare as most foundations that change shade would oxidise and get darker. I've never come across a foundation that actually gets paler. As a result making the foundation too light for my complexion. 

Who does it suit : I have dehydrated skin with some dry patches and I found it was actually quite horrible on me. I definitely wouldn't purchase it if you have dry or dehydrated skin. If you have oily skin though, it would be worth testing it out.

Shade Range: The shade range is fantastic with 50 different shades available on beauty bay and Superdrug.

Value for money : The foundation comes in at just over €12. The packaging is sturdy, you get 30ml of product and it's a decent formula if it suits your skin type!

Positives : It's affordable, easily available throughout the country, long lasting and gives great coverage. It's also vegan, cruelty free and paraben free. 

Negatives : The shade got paler when I blended it out, I noticed it clings to dry patches and feels chalky on the skin.

Overall : I have had in interesting journey with this foundation, as my skin concerns have changed since buying it! Initially my skin was quite oily around my t-zone, now however it's extremely dry and dehydrated. When my skin was on the oily side, I really enjoyed using the foundation either with a brush or beauty sponge. Now that my skin is dry however it looks awful on the skin. I'm only using it now to use it up and I definitely won't be repurchasing. However, if you have oily skin, it is very mattifying and might be worth giving it try.

Wonder Water Facial Tan - Dripping Gold by SoSu

A couple of months ago I picked up the Wonder Water facial Tan by SoSu in Penneys and I've been using it on and off ever since. I don't typically tan every single week, I do it when I have an event, a night out or a special occasion. Since Christmas though, I've been tanning a lot more than usual so I said I'd give the Wonder Water facial tan a go since I'd heard such rave reviews on it. I bought mine in Penneys when it was on offer for €7, but it's usually €12.95.

My first impression was very positive, I never tan my face so wasn't sure what to expect. I was a bit afraid I'd end up looking like an Oompa Loompa. 😂 But it all went to plan and when I woke up the next day I was delighted with how it turned out and since then, it's been my go to!


  • It's very affordable at €12.95 and I have seen it on a flash sale for €5 on the SoSu site a few times before.
  • It applies evenly, no streaks or patches.
  • It fades evenly too.
  • Makes the skin look beautifully tanned and healthy.
  • It's infused with Vitamin E.
  • It doesn't feel drying on the skin at all.
  • It's cruelty free, paraben free and vegan friendly.


  • If you have large pores like myself, sometimes it can clog them. I've only noticed this twice but still worth mentioning.

How to Use?
  1. Clean and moisturise your skin. 
  2. If you have blonde hair, make sure you use a hairband to completely cover your hair, otherwise the tan will stain your hair.
  3. Use a big fluffy brush (I use a powder brush) and spray the brush a few times (I do it 3 times approx).
  4. Apply to your face as if it was foundation.
  5. Let it dry and watch yourself turn into a bronzed goddess!

Here's a before and after pic for reference...

If you're looking to buy it, you can get it from or pick it up in any Penneys/pharmacy that stocks it. 

Have you tried it? What did you think?
