Love this & have repurchased; especially when I had a bad acne phase.
Coverage can be built, and two full pumps applied with a sponge all over face in a stippling action managed to cover purplish, reddish, brownish hyperpigmented spots affecting my cheek area with just the foundation alone.
008 Golden Beige matches me perfectly; a bottle lasts quite a while. Works great with buffing brush (lighter coverage) or stippled with sponge (fuller coverage). Photographs well (as long as it's a light hand of foundation or else white cast still happens)
Cons: Settles in the laugh lines. Needs blotting throughout day which can contribute to flakiness. I wouldn't describe this as long-wearing. When used with setting spray i.e. Fix+, can look like oil slick.
Pros: Looks great especially at night because there's a glow and veil of perfection to skin. Relatively sweat-proof (somewhat budge-proof when in contact with sweat)
Have bought MUFE HD Foundation and personally, the sweat factor of Revlon trumps MUFE thus my preference of Photoready over the HD foundation. You can see perspiration break down the MUFE and looks blotchy after blotting unlike Revlon which doesn't. continued >>
Overall I can't complain, it's easy to apply and smoothly glides over the skin, it doesn't feel to heavy on your face and It turns out great in photos. However be warned that in harsh lighting it can look really sparkly which is fine for clubbing and partying but for any other occasion can look a bit strange however for me this was only a very minor problem. I usually need to add light layer of powder over the top to increase it's durability as it doesn't last as long as it could but I usually find this the case with most foundations. Overall I have been pretty happy with this product and I would definitely purchase it again.
I love this foundation. I wear nw22 in Mac Studio fix and 005 natural beige is a perfect match. I rarely stray from studio fix but I heard great things about this foundation and thought I'd check it out.
I apply with a beauty Blender and it gives almost an airbrushed finish.
I have sensitive skin and have never had a breakout with this foundation.
It doesn't oxidize on my skin and has never looked orange.
When used with a setting powder it lasts me all day and controls my shine.
It has a pump!
Build able color.
The only thing I don't like about this foundation is they is a slight shimmer in it. It's not noticeable in pictures. I actually wore it on my wedding day and it's not noticeable to me.
I was very leary of trying a "drugstore" foundation, but this one was a pleasant surprise. it works great!
the color I got is caramel (I'm NC44) and it matches so well. it's a lighter coverage, which I prefer, and stays all day long on my drier skin. I set it with a little MSFN and I'm good to go.
I can attest to its claims as well, it photographs beautifully!
this is the better version of colorstay, only if it will stay long. I love how this foundation glides on smoothly. it does have a bit of glitter but i do not find that a problem, it gives a nice glow to the skin. this foundation is dewy. I will not say that this is not for oily skin, I will put it as "heavenly for people who are not part of the oilies". This foundation will stay on for long, only if i do not have to blot a lot as I am very oily. the medium is light to medium and is buildable. it covers my pores and gives me a very flawless look. I use this when my acne is not acting up and when im free of bumps on my face. i always make sure i dont run out on this one, for days that i do not need a lot of coverage. price is quite pricey for drugstore brands, but a little goes a long way. packaging is okay, but the cap can be improved, mine always loosen up so i stopped carrying it around with me. i would say this will be a staple on my makeup kit.
I always find myself coming back to this foundation and it is the best drugstore foundation that I have come found far. The coverage is medium and it is easy to build. The consistency is beautiful - it is very smooth, easy to blend, and applies like a dream. It does not accentuate my dry patches nor does it cake. I will point out thar the consistency of this foundation is not as thick as the colourstay - but it is much easier to apply and blend than the colourstay is. I love the lovely creamy texture of this foundation- it isn't extremely thick, nor is it too thin. The packaging is great and pump is convineant - no mess! It does last for a decent amount of time, but I wouldn't exactly call it long wearing. I set it with a translucent powder and finishing spray which prolonges the wear of it.
Not for people with oily skin. Light consistency, very easy to blend, It gives me that pretty dewy look at first but then it gets too oily throughout the day. The only way I can wear it is if I mix it with Revlon Colorstay or Estee Lauder Double Wear. Is a very good foundation but sadly this foundation won't work for my skin type :( I do recommend it for people with dry to normal skin.
This foundation was a no-go for me. Not because it was bad or anything ... I just don't think it's right for my skin type. For reference, I'm combo-oily and when I first apply this, this foundation feels and looks okay. But after only about 2-3 hours, my face starts to grease up and by the end of the day, i'm an oily mess. I'm not one who tends to blot my face throughout the day but I found myself constantly blotting throughout the day when I wear this foundation. Oh and yes, I do set this with a powder. Besides it making me really oily, I don't think it's that bad of a foundation. I do think it's a bit pricey for drugstore though. But it does look nice in photos and it's easy to blend. It's gives medium-ish coverage and doesn't feel that heavy on the skin (unlike the colorstay). The tiny sparkles honestly doesn't bother me that much and I barely notice it. Overall, I think this will be a great foundation for dry-skin people but oily skins, beware! This WILL be a greasy mess.
I have been currently using this for the past 3 months, and it really gives a nice smooth natural look. Doesn't make my face look powdered and dry, gives the "dewy" look everyone else is explaining which I love. I haven't had any complain about the micro sparkles, I hardly notice them and nobody has noticed them on me. Usually once I apply my blush the sparkles on my cheeks are not visible.
I personally feel that it doesn't cover red acne on my face too well alone (I don't get acne often however), but paired with concealer underneath it works well enough.
It's priced $20 in Canada where I live, and personally I find that expensive but I wanted to give this product a try.
I feel like I would buy this product again, especially for the natural dew look it gives, however I usually like trying different products.
First, let me say I see no glitter whatsoever in this product. It does without powder leave a slightly dewy finish, but even in direct sunlight I can't see the glitter. I don't know if this is something for visable in certain shades than others, but I use Nude and I see no glitter. I fall between a MAC NC25-30 and this is SLIGHTLY light on me, but a good undertone. The shade up, Sand Beige I believe?, is much too pinky and the other shades looked very dark/had the wrong tone so I opted for Nude. It being slightly light is okay with me though, as I use a slightly darker Mineralize poweder to set, and I will be losing color in the next few weeks anyways. Matches perfect. The coverage on this foundation is a medium/buildable. I like that is doesn't have strong scent *Dior* *cough, cough* and doesn't feel heavy or wet on my skin, like it's sister Colorstay. I also think the shades are better than Colorstay, as they seem to run lighter. To me, it also looks more skinlike and natural and feels lighter than Colorstay, and I think it's a superior product. It seems like many like Colorstay better though so I guess it depends on what you're looking for and your skin. I am normal to dry with some acne scars and this covers beautifully while looking natural. My only qulam, like with any drugstore foundation is no testers. I wish drugstores would carry testers of foundations....oh well, the ones I don't like just go into my kit. Overall, minus the color selections, this is a great product and surely worth trying. Can get it on BOGO alot so not much to lose!
Edit:I used this without powder and you can see some shimmer. Doesnt bother me though, just wanted to point that out. :)
