Review : Revlon Photoready Translucent Finisher

Here's the last part of my Revlon Photoready Collection review.

Revlon Photoready Translucent Finisher in Translucent

PRODUCT INFO from REVLON:
  • For poreless airbrushed skin in any light
  • Universal translucent shade
  • Eliminates shine and sets makeup
  • Photochromatic pigments bend, reflect and diffuse light
  • Micro-refined, ultra-lightweight texture that's virtually undetectable
  • Oil free, Fragrance Free
RETAIL PRICE: Php 975 or about $21

WEIGHT : 7.1 grams (0.25 oz)

SHADES : Available in only 1 shade - Translucent.

WHAT I LIKE:
* powder has fine shimmers to reflect light - no chunky glitters!
* sheer coverage powder perfect for touch ups and controlling shine
* no breakouts / allergies
* compact is thin with mirror and brush (same with the Photoready powder)
* good oil control - this reminds me of my MAC Blot powder.
* doesn't cake even if you re-apply it several times during the day
* powder is not chalky (texture)
* can be used as a highligher

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.
* no SPF
* comes only in 1 shade
* shade doesn't suit dark skintones - this may be too white on you, better test before purchasing.

TIPS:
Since the powder is almost white, apply sparingly if you plan to use this all over your face. I only use it on my T-zone area (forehead, nose and chin) to control oil and it also adds a slight shimmer too, perfect for highlighting. I don't apply it on my cheek area since its already dry =P

ADDICTION FACTOR:
Yes! IMO, this is a good alternative for MAC Blot powder.

RATING :
4 / 5
