This tinted moisturizer is a good option for those who prefer a natural look. The coverage provided by Revolotion Face SPF 15 is sheer and helps even out skin tone, but not to the extent that it’ll conceal dark circles or blemishes. The satin finish of this tinted moisturizer will feel best on those with normal to slightly dry or slightly oily skin. While Revolotion Face SPF 15 does provide sufficient broad-spectrum SPF coverage, it doesn't best other, less expensive tinted moisturizers available from Neutrogena.

Note: This foundation’s rating is due to its overall performance rather than its SPF rating. Due to concerns about people not applying sunscreen liberally enough to get the amount of SPF protection stated on the label, it is often recommended to look for SPFs with ratings higher than 15. If you plan to use foundation as your sole source of facial sun protection, consider using one rated SPF 20 or greater. If the foundation with sunscreen you choose is rated less than an SPF 20, we strongly advise applying it over a daytime moisturizer rated SPF 15 or greater and following it with a pressed powder rated SPF 15 or greater. That way, you’re ensuring sufficient broad-spectrum protection which is essential for having and maintaining healthy, younger-looking skin at any age.

A sheer lightweight moisturizer that has the perfect blend of color, SPF 15, hydrating moisturizers, and light reflecting pigment that leaves you with a flawless, natural looking, radiant complexion. The velvety formula for Revolotion Face helps eliminate redness and conceal discoloration for even-looking skin, and can be used liberally around the face without settling into fine lines and creases. The light reflecting pigment works with a satin matte finish to give you a balanced look that is never greasy and helps conceal fine lines.

If you've heard the story of how DuWop came to be, you might think it has a familiar ring to it, and you'd be right—it's basically the same old story you hear about lots of these celebrity makeup artist lines. As the DuWop story goes, a pair of hair and makeup artists, in this case Cristina Bartolucci and Laura DeLuisa, working deep in the "Hollywood beauty trenches," began to realize that there was a need for some products that weren't on the market. (Although with thousands upon thousands of cosmetic products being sold all over the place, what the heck could they possibly have thought was missing?)

Apparently dismayed at the paucity of options (but we ask you, how then were they doing their jobs as makeup artists), and determined to improve matters, they took to their kitchen and started creating products themselves. Shortly thereafter, DuWop was born, and women everywhere now had new and improved and previously unavailable choices when shopping for makeup at Sephora and select department stores that retail the DuWop line. These two ladies are indeed excellent makeup artists, but their products are neither unique nor different from numerous others in any noticeable way. And we can guarantee you that the formulations are not something that came from someone's kitchen.

DuWop is best known for its Lip Venom products. In fact, the company claims to have created the first-ever lip plumper. That claim may or may not be true, but either way it's a dubious badge of honor given how bad such products are for the lips. Anyone who has ever experienced the irritating and drying effects of any of the Venom products should be well aware that creating such irritating products is not really anything to brag about.

Outside of their plumping products, is there anything worthy of your attention if you come across this sleekly packaged line? Yes, there are some, but certainly not all of them; some are mediocre and some are nicely formulated, but there is nothing in the line that you can't find elsewhere. DuWop is just one more option in a crowded market of makeup products.

The company offers a very good concealer, blush/bronzer, lipsticks, and lipliner. The irony with DuWop is that the products they are best known for are the products you should avoid; basically, any of those that end with "Venom"!

DuWop isn't quite the leading-edge brand it's made out to be, nor are the products as revolutionary as they claim—these products don't even amount to a skirmish. However, their price point for the most part is modest, the overall attitude is fun from an experiment-with-color perspective, and because Sephora stores offer testers for every product, so it's easy to try items yourself before making the decision to buy. We doubt that most women will assemble a full makeup wardrobe from the DuWop line, but DuWop is fine for selecting some products if you prefer shopping for cosmetics in an upscale environment.
