The Revolution Pro CC Cream Perfecting Foundation SPF30 has been teased by the Revolution team for months, with cheeky sneak peeks on Instagram. It's a product that people have been waiting for, if the comments on their Instagram posts are anything to go by.
And it's finally launched on their website alongside the CC Perfecting Pressed Powder and Sculpting Powders. All three new base launches are part of the Revolution Pro collection, and they join the Revolution Pro base range.
Revolution Pro CC Cream Perfecting Foundation SPF30
The tag line for the Revolution Pro makeup range is ‘makeup that does more', and this new foundation is described as being their most hard working, multi-purpose foundation that's perfect for dry to combination skin.
The Revolution Pro CC Cream Perfecting Foundation offers buildable coverage, taking it from sheer to full depending on your method of application, whilst leaving your skin hydrated and protected.
The Revolution Pro CC Cream Perfecting Foundation contains hyaluronic acid and collagen to protect the skin whilst evening out the skintone with the infusion of anti-oxidants like vitamin E that help to reduce any redness.
Revolution also claim the formula will work to diffuse the appearance of wrinkles whilst offering long lasting coverage that doesn't feel cakey or heavy on the skin.
The foundation is packaged within a luxurious gold compressible tube with a pump dispenser, and gold lid for a quick, fuss-free application with zero waste. For a drugstore foundation, the packaging definitely looks more luxe than something you'd expect to see in Superdrug.
The price is quite high at £10 especially as it only contains 26ml. 26ml is a really disappointing amount of product, when every other brand in the drugstore give you 30ml to 40ml.
That's where Revolution are sometimes a little deceptive, as their prices look great but when you look at the amount of product you're getting compared to similar formulas from the likes of Rimmel or Maybelline, you're actually not getting as great a deal as you think you are.
Not many bloggers talk about the mls and grams within a product, but it's important consumers know exactly what they're getting for money – so always check the price, and weight/volume against other products.

The Revolution Pro CC Cream Perfecting Foundation SPF30 is available in just 20 shades, and 20 shades isn't bad for a shade range.
But when you consider they have over 50 shades of their Conceal and Define Foundation, and shout that from the rooftops, it's always a little disappointing when they introduce new foundations with a much smaller shade range.
The Revolution Pro CC Cream Perfecting Foundation SPF30 is most definitely Revolution's dupe of the IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream, and the packaging looks very similar too.
The Revolution version has gold accents, whilst the IT Cosmetics has silver, and they both contain SPF – with the Revolution having an SPF of 20, and the IT Cosmetics version having an SPF of 50.
I have tried the IT Cosmetics CC Cream and it has impressive coverage, and the Revolution Pro CC Cream Perfecting Foundation looks to have impressive coverage too.
From the swatches I've seen on Instagram Stories, I think the Revolution Pro CC Cream Perfecting Foundation could be a very credible dupe for the IT Cosmetics version, which is a massive cult favourite, award winner so it'll be interesting to see how they compare in terms of finish and longevity too. I have bought my shade so I'll definitely report back once I've given it a try!
