I love this foundation because it gives me really good coverage that naturally evens out my skin tone and stays put all day. Sometimes, I have to use a little bit of concealer where I have a blemish, but for the most part this really makes my skin look even and luminous. I don't really see this foundation as sparkly, but it does give me a "glow." I also think it's great because you can blend powder blush over it, without it getting streaky. I hated this the first time I used it and tried to spread it with my fingers, but since I've been putting it on with a makeup sponge, I've loved it. Will continue to use.
When i first got it, i LOVED IT. and i mean ADORE ADORE ADORE. i thought,. hey the shimmers aren't thaat bad. i couldn't really see them in the bathroom mirror/inside buildings. it kept a lot of oil control!! unlike my other foundations (although i still got a little oil, but it's really OK because i'm naturally a greaseball). in photos, this really does make your skin look flawless. i am in love with the pump.
i've been using it for a month now and i'm actually fed up with the shimmery face. when i'm outside you can see full fledge sparkles on my face. i'm already battling with a shimmery blush or eyeshadow getting in different spots on my face!! the foundation adds to it :[
the foundation itself is the most natural and flawless foundation i have tried. it's just that it looks like i dipped my hands in glitter and started wiping my hand on my face. i would get this in a heart beat if revlon decides to make a matte version! and not colorstay because i hated that foundation.
I was not sure what to expect with this foundation but now that I have used it for a while I find that it is quite excellent. I use No.8 Golden Beige (I am MAC NC40/42) and find this shade rather good - slightly more yellow based without being at all orange, is natural looking and does not oxidize throughout the day. Initially when you apply it, there are very faint shimmer particles - I don't notice this at all once blended into the skin - in fact this is what gives the slight luminous quality which kind of skims over imperfections - I have acne scarring and while I still need some concealer as the coverage of the foundation is medium, this does seem to soften the look of those scars. I have used Colorstay before which is better coverage but I personally prefer PhotoReady as it looks more natural and I like the more creamy, plumper texture. This also lasts rather well throughout the day and packaging is much more convenient. Recommend
Revlon just doesn't know how to make foundation, especially for people who are pale. Both Vanilla and Ivory are too dark for me, and they both have a ton of shimmer that is TOTALLY unflattering. I like that it comes in a pump bottle, but there is NO coverage for me with this foundation. I probably will never try another Revlon foundation again.
-actually reflects light,so your skin looks flawless in pictures. not in a sweaty/oily kind of way.
-stays put. went dancing for about 2 hours straight,got sweat all over my face but it didn't melt
-a little goes a long way
-emphasizes dry skin
-tend to look overdone because of the shimmer.. not for everyday use
So i'm not the kind of person who goes out and experiments with different foundations. If i find one that works for me, than I stay with it until I don't like it anymore. So I had Mary Kay foundation for about a year, but then my consultant decided not to sell it anymore. So i had to find a new foundation. I decided to buy this one. I got it in the Cool Beige, but it was too dark for me so I went and got the Nude color too. So I mix them together and it makes my exact skin color. It does have sparkles and you can really see them in the light. So for someone who doesn't like sparkles, don't buy this. It is also for people who don't have a lot of blemishes. I usually do not break out but 4 months ago, i broke out like crazy! I kept braking out for about 2 months. And than it just stopped. So now i have scaring that just doesn't want to go away! So i put on the Revlon PhotoReady and than apply some creme spot treatment. But once my scaring goes away, i think this will be a really nice product. Especially now that summer is coming around. It's very light and feels like i'm not wearing makeup. I love the pump! It blends really nicely. and looks really natural. The only things I wish that were different is for it to be a little thicker and less sparkly. But overall I like it!
I've realized there's no middle ground with this foundation, you either hate or love it. I could see why some folks do not like this product. There's shimmer, no/light coverage and any other reasons some people could point out. I have dry skin with barely any blemishes on my face. For those with a lot of blemishes,I recommend something like Revlon Colorstay for coverage. This foundation is for those with barely/no blemishes, dry/combination skin, and prefer dewy finishes.
I am converted to this foundation i love it . I previously used clinique but this stuff is so much better. I have it in a few shades now too so i can chaop and change as the seasons change . I really like the finish it gives and really does make your skin look great. Doesnt give me spots either which is a total bonus ( after wearing clinique for too long spots would crop up but not with this !) will definitely buy this again just waiting for summer now to see how it stands up to heat ! hopefully it will still be just as good . It doesnt look heavy or anything either but it still has great coverage good all rounder and would totally reccommend!
I started using this product 1 month ago, I would describe my skin as combination; some oily patches with some dryness around certain areas.
There is alot of glitter in this product, however this doesn't really bother me. I would buy the product again if they halfed the amount of glitter in the product, or milled it more finely. I think the overall consistancy is good, not too runny, and not too thick. A medium coverage, but it can be buildable, but be warned it will look cakey and glittery if applied to generously.
I also prefer using a damp sponge to apply this foundation for some reason compared to my foundation brushes.
I suggest working in one area of the face at a time, as I have noticed that the foundation can begin to set, if your as slow as me at applying your foundation.
However the colour is perfect for my pale-ish skin, Vanilla 02, isnt as white as my skin, but it brings a tiny bit of colour to my face which is needed due to how dead i look in the morning.
I LOVE the pump, however I find the cap some what annoying.
Overall I like this product and recommend it if your wanting to try out a new foundation, a similar foundation is the Bourjois 10hr sleep effect, albeit I think it has a nicer finish, less glitter, and less coverage, it is also £4 cheaper. Retail price of the Bourjois foundation is usually £8.99 (30ml), Photo ready revlon foundation is usually £12.99 (30ml)
I hope this was helpful :)
i really like this makeup., i have quite fair skin and got a colour far too dark so im pretty pissed of il have to try and get a lighter one, but still do recomend this.the shimmer is a little wierd thow lolz
