My name is Shelly and I’m a 43-year-old web geek that jumped off the deep end into the makeup and beauty world. I’ve got dry skin, fine lines starting to form, and some sun spots that I desperately wish to get rid of or cover up! Cameo appearances by my rescue cats Daffy, Polly, Ziva, and Merlin.

  1. I would have never considered trying it out if it wasnt for your review! Got it yesterday, super excited to try it. Its been tough to find full coverage product for dry aging skin. Thank you for the awesome reviews.

  2. If you have to choose one foundation from makeup revolution, what would you choose between this and base stick? For dry skin and fine lines

  3. I love your videos!! Can anyone help me!!
    I have orange peel skin w enlarged pores, need serious pore minimizing!! Tried just about everything (pore professional, smashbox, wen&wild, Elf’s) anyone w my issue please help me! Tired of the huge pores!!

  4. I enjoy your tutorials; I’m 43. You are really down to earth, just the right type of person to be informative and on point, all the while being just yourself. You are like any one Nurse I work with; real, smart and you can tell a story about a product. Keep’em coming! I bought the product based on your review and it was a good hit for me w Dry skin. Yeiiii!!

  5. Black Hawks? I"ll be watching the Bears tonight! Love your review, because I can see in a way, how this foundation will work for me when you put it on. Obviously you're more skilled at it, but I get a pretty good idea of what I'm in for, be it the foundation, mascara, or whatever. Thanks again!

  6. Hi Shelly, What is the name of the Dewy Spray foundation setter you mentioned a while back? If you don't remember- can you suggest one? I have a drug store brand and I think I am allergic to it. My eyes burn after I use it. I have tried everything not to get it in my eyes. DOH!

  7. I love that your reviews encompass an entire day of work! I wake up with my kids, go to work and then come home and do the dinner/bath/bedtime thing and I am always worried I will look a hot mess by the end of the day lol I know if your makeup holds up then it'll do well by my long ass day too!

  8. Love your videos as always! Quick question – I ordered the HSN TSV 5 piece Too Faced collection and am looking forward to trying everything. I've seen that you occasionally wear the 3-in-1 spray. Do you use it before or after your SPF?

  9. I'm not a fan of Kat Von D but she needs to be allowed to come to her own decision about vaccines. If more people would do the actual research, they may decide not to vaccinate as well. People aren't trying to ruin their children. They are trying to protect them from Big Pharma who wants to expand and keep themselves in business. [jumping off my soap box now.]

  10. The doe foot makes it an automatic NO! for me. I wish companies wouldn't do this. It's so hard to use up all the product in the bottle and they obviously don't give a hoot.

  11. I'm happy to hear this worked for you (it looks amazing 💞) because I'm also over 40 with dry skin and the same skin tone as you. I always touch, rub and blow my nose so I dont apply foundation there. What I do is use a heacy duty pore primer on it, then a full coverage concealer and several layers of powder. I also use Conceal and Define Concealer in 0.5 in my lines and it seems to hide them quite well. Thanks so much for the review. I love their Foundation Serum and the full coverage one in a tube, so I'm going to also try this and the fast base. I use #4 in everything but it's almost a little light so I'm going to get a
    concealer in C6 to do a bit of contouring.

  12. I didn't like it. It cakes into my fine lines and is too dry, even with Dewey setting spray and oil primer. Returned it 😞

  13. I was just thinking at the beginning of the video how fantastic your skin is looking! Maybe I need to be checking out that P50….. Thank you for the Kat Von D comment- couldn't stop laughing. 😂

  14. Hi, I think Revolution is going to extend the colour shade range to 40+ shades shortly, I think they posted about it on Instagram or Facebook, If anyone's interested.

    I've not tried this one yet but I plan to once I figure out what shade to get lol

  15. Hi Shelly, TY for another incredible review! I picked up the soda pop palette and it totally reminds me of the TF peanut butter jelly palette but I really like soda pop better! Also, loved your pretty yellow flower top! I hope you have a great day! 😍🍂🍁💛💞

  16. Hockey family here!! We honeymooned in Canada so we could catch a Flames game. You are killing me with your KVD mirror- hilarious and the reason I dig your channel the most!! I love foundation and I have passed this by several times, maybe I need this one.

  17. I also use the biologi… lotion P50 but I use P50W (the one designed for sensitive skin) and even that’s burns my skin practically right off (not to mention the gross vinegar smell).
    I do see a fade in my freckles though which is crazy.

  18. SMOOTH! Lol! Love how this looks. Tati did a less than complimentary review on this, but I have to say I’m finding her advice a bit suspect these days (she was snarky and kinda bitchy about the whole brand IMO). Your new setup looks great and I think the lighting looks very natural, even compared to the daylight check in. What did you think of the concealer? Think I’m going to grab this for my 17 year old daughter, along with the stick foundation. Would you recommend either of the concealers? P.S. what is the product you mentioned that is working on sun spots? Thanks Shelly (AKA The Mayor of swatch town😂).

  19. Yay! Another success….and a drugstore one at that!! Adding this one to my list. Thanks for another great Foundation Friday! And my heart skipped a beat when you mentioned Foundation Fest!! ❤️❤️❤️

  20. Lol on KVD. She seems to have alienated people from all sides. This foundation sounds really good. I have to admit I was influenced by a certain (cough) review, but this is the second positive review of the foundation I’ve seen. Plus I really like the concealer, and didn’t agree with that person’s review of it. And I thought the review of the eye palettes was unfair. Don’t know why I let her dissuade me from the foundation! Thanks for the review.

  21. I think this foundation is sooo GOOD!! It does an awesome job at smoothing and it DOESN'T sink into my smilelines, which every foundation does at some point but this one was still going strong at 12 hrs and was just starting to rub off slightly on my nose. I have dry to normal skin and I think it looked great, it didn't look dry or anything. But I did use a dewy setting spray, milani my fav. This is very pigmented too, i only need about one dunk and a half on my face for med-full coverage and then touch up certain spots. The doefoot is ok. The stopper is very tight and wipes off all product from the sides and is only in that little "well".I did find the shades don't correspond and were a little light in my opinion. As for the fast base concealer, I LOVE it!!! Now idk if it was the foundation or concealer or both together that made the smoothing effect but this concealer is my new go to. They do run dark I think. I got shade C4 and F6 and the concealer was the same shade almost as my foundation so if I want brightening I would have to get C3. But I'm so impressed. The only thing that is annoying on the concealer is the damn cap!! You get product all over the inside when u take the cap on or off and aren't super super careful.
