Review : Revlon Photoready Powder

Revlon Photoready Powder in Fair /Light

PRODUCT INFO from REVLON:
  • Delivers soft colour with a luminous air-brushed finish
  • Reduces shine and evens out skin tone
  • Sets makeup for a poreless appearance
  • Micro-fine, ultra-lightweight, creamy pressed powder formula
  • Oil free, Fragrance Free
  • SPF 14
  • Can be used alone or in combination with the PhotoReady Makeup
RETAIL PRICE: Php 975 or about $21

WEIGHT : 7.1 grams (0.25 oz)

SHADES : Available in 3 shades.
> Fair / Light
> Light / Medium
> Medium / Deep


WHAT I LIKE:
* powder has tiny shimmers to reflect light
* sheer to medium coverage perfect for setting the Photoready foundation. Tried it with a different brand of foundation and it still works great.
* doesn't cake on me
* no breakouts / allergies - didn't make my skin itch
* has SPF
* compact is thin with mirror and brush
* good oil control

WHAT I DON'T LIKE:
* has a slight weird scent on the compact- but it disappears once applied.
* brush included is kinda scratchy and small - you can use this as a highlighter brush. (Thanks Nikki for the tip!)


TIPS:
I prefer to use my Ecotools baby kabuki brush and swirl it onto the powder. Apply in light layers using a circular motion. Do not over apply.

ADDICTION FACTOR:
Yes! This is a good setting powder, not messy compared to loose powders.

RATING :
5 / 5

The compact looks similar to the Revlon Photoready Finisher.
Will post comparison pics on my next review.

So photoready has been launched in the Philippines huh?
I have no idea when they are going to launch it here, what a bummer.
Anyways, nice review and the product sounds perfect for touchups :)
