The £4 Foundation

I have recently made a very purse-friendly discovery, enter Make Up Revolution. 

Now I love a high end beauty product as much as the next cosmetics buff,  and yes, I am often guilty of turning up my nose at the cheapo brands - you know the ones I mean! However I'd started to hear some pretty good things about this brand via some other bloggers and I was somewhat inquisitive. 

So off I trotted to Superdrug Beauty last week and came back with a couple of products to try.  I bought a little eyebrow kit (also very very good if you're interested!) but this foundation was the standout product for me.  It's called the Ultra Face Base Foundation and I got it in the 'yellow tone' FB06 shade.  There are 11 shades in total, so a pretty good selection. 

The consistency is thick and it can be applied with both the fingers or a buffing brush (I like to use a combination of both - fingers then brush).  The finish is superb and some of you are going to be shocked when I say this but I find it very comparable to the Chantecaille Just Skin.  Yes, you read correctly, this product (at just £4!) is of similar quality to a tinted moisturiser that costs £57!!!!!! 

When you first apply it, it appears quite dewy.  I've been using a very light dusting of setting powder over the top and this stuff LASTS and looks better and better throughout the day, providing a lovely natural, very slightly dewy finish.  I am seriously seriously impressed!!! People have commented on how great my skin looks and that hasn't happened for a while! 

So, I urge you to go out and try this for yourself.   I'm eager to try more products from their range especially since everything is so damn cheap and such great quality! Makeup Revolution, you have a new fan!

Back tomorrow with some more Life Lately for you!
