Review : Revlon Photoready Foundation

Here's Part 1 of my Revlon PhotoReady Collection review. Its my first time to try High Definition makeup, been lemming for this ever since I read good reviews about this line. Imagine my surprise when I was asked to review the products! =)


Revlon PhotoReady™ Collection

Okay, I'll review the Photoready foundation first.


PRODUCT INFO from REVLON:
* Delivers soft, luminous airbrushed finish in any light
* Photochromatic pigments bend, reflect and diffuse light to erase every flaw
* Complete yet undetectable coverage
* Oil free, Fragrance Free
* SPF 20
* Can be used alone or in combination with either the PhotoReady Powder OR PhotoReady Translucent Finisher

RETAIL PRICE: Php 975 (about $20)

WEIGHT : 30 ml / 1 fl. oz

SHADES : Available in several shades.

Shades available locally:
Shell, Nude, Natural Beige, Medium Beige, Cool Beige


WHAT I LIKE:
* sheer-medium (but buildable) coverage
* has spf 20
* unscented
* not mask like or fake looking
* my face looks glowing coz of the tiny shimmers
* lightweight - doesn't feel heavy on the face
* spreads easily, non- sticky
* no allergies or breakouts
* love the pump packaging!
* my face doesn't look shiny after an hour or two (i have normal skin w/ oily t-zone)


WHAT I DON'T LIKE:
* limited shades available locally- but I'm glad SHELL perfectly matched my NC20 skintone.
* still used concealer on my undereyes, it looked brighter/ illuminated after applying the foundation - but it still didn't totally cover the "darkness" LOL


TIPS:
You only need a pump or two to cover your face and neck area. You can use either a brush or a sponge to apply. Apply in thin layers until you get the coverage you want.

If you have severe pimple marks, scars etc, I think the foundation will not totally cover (since it doesn't have full coverage when used alone) -
but it will help reflect light on your problem areas so that its less noticeable.

Some people noticed the visible shimmers especially under daylight - to tone this down apply loose powder. But in my experience, i'm not bothered by it coz its hardly visible (on me).

ADDICTION FACTOR:
I love it!

RATING :
4 out of 5.

great post!!!

you really know your own forte when it comes to make-up...though I am not really a fan of make-ups but if I feel being a princess, I think i can ask you for suggestions and help.

Makes me wonder when we meet in Cebu soon, if I have to prepare myself and make sure to get my face all prep-up....just kidding...

saw the photos on FB...lovely my dear!!!

Take Care Always,
with love
