Review: Revlon Photoready Foundation

Wheew, so tired! Today marks the official end of my Easter break, and between trying to write an entry for this blog, finishing up some last-minute school requirements, plus a little bit of shopping mixed in – to say today was busy is truly an understatement!

So, after attending 2 Easter parties and eating all of that yummy BBQ (party food on the island), I was bone-tired. However, before heading home the hubby and I made a quick stop at K-mart, and I ended up at the makeup section (no surprise there!). I passed by the clearance section and picked up some Rimmel blushes ($1 each!), and I finally ended up at the Revlon counter/area. My heart started beating faster when I realized our local K-mart had gotten some shipments of Revlon Photoready Foundation. I’ve read a lot of reviews on the product, most of them mixed and I knew I just had to try it.

Here’s my opinion:

I was so excited to try the product, so I hurriedly put on the foundie, some blush (Rimmel Mousse blush) and lipstick (Maybelline Color-Sensationals).

The product looked amazing in person. It gave off this really youthful glow, and though I have Combination/Oily skin, my MAC Primer was able to work its usual magic. My sister saw the product on me and swore she would purchase one for herself! Yes, the glitters are readily noticeable, but it lent to the whole “dewy” look. I also loved the packaging, Revlon got it right this time, a pump! Plus, the product goes a long way, (1 fl. oz/ 30 ml) one pump was enough to cover my whole face.

My Acne scarring was still visible, though I don’t think the glitter in this particular foundation exaggerated it. Also, for a product called “PhotoReady”, I assumed it would work with flash, sadly no.I took a bunch of pictures and my face looked lighter in about a quarter of them.
All in all, I still loved this foundation! I didn’t realize it until now, but I really hated the whole matte look. Thank you Revlon, for helping me figure that out.

Grade: A
