This is the worst foundation I have ever used. I was quite looking forward to trying it as I like colorstay and age defying make up with botofirm by Revlon.Well this was awful. It just sat on the top of my skin.Greasy, shiny , glittery, just awful. When I tried to put powder and blush on top of this it just slid off.Never experienced anything like it and I'm 56. Good sunscreen, that's all I can say in it's favour. Don't know where Revlon went wrong with this one as I am quite a fan of Revlon, but they sure managed it! Stay clear would be my advice.!
This is hands down the worst foundation I have ever used. It is thick and greasy. My face looks like an oil slick within 20 minutes of applying, even with oil absorbing rice powder used to set it. It makes my microscopic lines that are invisible with naked skin look super pronounced and makes my pores look even bigger than they are. Mine doesn't seem to have the sparkles that others are talking about, but it does oxidize very badly and makes my face look red. I will never, ever purchase this foundation again.
I love this stuff! I have been very pleased lately with Revlon foundations. I have been using this product for about 6 months or so now, and have repurchased about three times. The coverage is more on the sheer side, so if I want fuller coverage I mix this with the Revlon BB cream which is a thicker consistency and really gives a nice finish.
This stuff definitely has a dewy finish, and is somewhere in-between a tinted moisturizer and a cream makeup in my opinion. I have gotten multiple comments on how great my skin looks when I wear this stuff and it's become my daily go to foundation.
The packaging SUCKS though! The product sits in a swirly looking design, I assume the idea was to mimic a DNA helix or whatever, and because of that there is a lot of wasted product that you can't ever get out because it sticks on the sides and will not move for anything.
I do love this stuff and I will continue to purchase as long as they keep making it!
Guys!!! why isnt anybody comenting on the glitterrrr!!!!! gosh i though revlon photoready had glitter but oh my!!!! i mean, i went to the drugstore to try this on...the lady put it on my hand....omg soooo muchhh glitterrr. it was like a party glitter in my hand...I mean...is that suppost to make you look younger or stuped???

I've been concerned about signs of aging recently and I read an article that listed this as number 1 in it's price category. I have normal nose, dry forehead, and extremely dry cheeks (at least in the winter, the time I'm trying this). I use OCM at night and in the morning after shower I use a few drops of sunflower oil or olive oil to moisturize, then once that dries a sunscreen, then I wait as long as I can before foundation.
The consistency is a bit sticky, which is odd. I understand how people want to use this without a moisturizer, but even with all that stuff I listed above, my cheeks still dry out before I leave the house, making that flaky look. I don't finish with powder on my cheeks, just my nose and eyes and forehead, and my cheeks still look flaky. However, this morning I put just a little bit of rosehip oil on my cheeks after I would normally have been done and it seems to add just a little dew to my cheeks and minimize flakes- I'm digging it!
If I weren't so stubborn that I could make it work somehow, I might dump this foundation, but it looks natural on my nose and forehead and coverage is fine- the sticky feeling goes away. I really want to try for 8 weeks to test any anti-aging properties, which would really determine whether or not I would buy it again.
Darnit. This stuff stinks and it does not work nearly as well as my favorite--the discontinued age defying fluid foudation in sand beige. This crap has a fakey look to it, aside from the bad smell. Why did they have to stop making what worked for me? They don't even have my color, anymore!
Oh, beautiful, beautiful foundation. Smooth as liquid, rich as cream, gorgeous full coverage, extraordinary skin enriching ingredients that actually help make my thirtysomething skin become smoother, softer, firmer, brighter.
I use the shade Bare Buff, which works fantastically with my pale, fair, slightly yellow-toned complexion. The texture is like silk and velvet. The rich cream coverage conceals old acne scars, redness, dark circles, even new pimples. The foundation even lasts for several hours no matter the climate, temperature, weather, or humidity. It works wonderfully for dry skin, sensitive skin, and dry sensitive skin like mine. Over a good moisturizer, the DNA Advantage Foundation is so great that my skin looks almost flawless. Too bad the packaging won't fit in my purse!
I had really wanted to like this product because of the reviews, but I absolutely HATE it! First, the foundation is so shiny, it makes me feel like I'm wearing glitter! Not only that, the texture felt greasy, oily, and muddy; the product lays on my skin and feels really gross. I didn't even try to wear the foundation out. Overall, bad buy, but the packaging is gorgeous and handy.
In a word - disappointing. This foundation lays on the skin like an oily film and it smells terrible. It shows every little imperfection on my face and seems to gravitate to the small lines and larger pores making them more noticeable. Would not recommend it to anyone.
Bare buff in this was the most fabulous colour and texture for my super pale yellowy skin however no matter how lovely it was it caused chronic dermatitis which is very rare of a Revlon product for me. Sadly I cannot use this
