The packaging is nice and really convenient. I really like how i comes with a retractable brush. When I applied the powder to my face it had this really nice cooling sensation but the coverage is very thin and just barely covered the redness on my face. The reason for the low rating is because there is a load of shimmer in the powder. It's kinda weird to walk around looking like a disco ball.
I am not into mineral foundations at all - but I thought this would be a great finishing powder. I apply it under my eyes, over my concealer - #60 is the shade I chose - a little dark for me - but it is really smooth and not chalky at all. I love it! Revlon products continue to impress me!
This is a good powder foundation. I liked how it felt cold & wet when it applied. I love the attached brush. Really nice. It has tons of sparkle to it. I noticed it more when it was on my hand than when it was on my face.
This feels AMAZING when I put it on my skin! It's so cooling and moisturizing :)
Unfortunately, that's the only good thing about this "foundation". It gives little coverage with A LOT of shimmer and is way too expensive for a drugstore product. The packaging would be great for traveling ... if the brush worked well.
I do use this over my liquid foundation because the 'aqua' aspect of the product is good for my dry skin. I wouldn't use this alone because my skin has a bunch of red patches all over. It would work as a foundation for someone with pretty good skin.
I really liked this foundation. It gave me coverage through out the day and made my skin look smooth. Really liked the way it looked. It gave me shimmer but not disco ball shimmer.
I am devastated that this product is replacing the regular ColorStay Mineral powder foundation, which I have been using since soon after it came out.
The foundation looked good from a distance, but from close up, it emphasized all the pores on my nose and the apples of my cheeks. The shiny aspect of the powder made matters worse. It looked liked there was paint on my face. Just horrible. I've already returned it.
The packaging is an improvement on the regular ColorStay Mineral Powder, although I don't think that the jar can be opened, so transferring it could be a problem.
Overall, a huge disappointment.
I guess when Revlon says that their foundation has a luminous effect, it means there are tiny glitter flecks in it. I was not expecting that. It looks tacky on with the tiny little glitters all over. It doesn't blend well and doesn't give coverage. It takes a few layers to get any coverage. The brush is a joke. It feels really gross going on. The wet feeling as it goes on is nasty. The color matched, but in any light it looked ridiculous on. It was streaky. The price was a little much for a drug store foundation, but not the worst price I have seen in a drugstore. I like the packaging but the tiny little brush in the lid was just stupid. I would never buy this again and urge you not to waste your money on it. I am kind of pissed that I spent money on this that I can't get back. I would love to take it back.
This foundation is only avaliable in 5 shades.
It provides little to no coverage.
Expensive ($13) for drugstore brand.
Product feels gross when applying; cold & wet.
Great for perfect skin.
I'm really conflicted as to whether or not I like this foundation and would buy it again. First of all, not having read or heard anything about this and just buying it on a whim, I was unprepared for the cool, wet feeling upon application. It took some getting used to. I can actually feel the foundation "set" while drying on my face and it does tend to stay on for a long time. I don't like the brush it came with. I find it applies more evenly with a powder brush. I am disappointed in the lack of coverage. I had to apply a few coats to cover my redness and freckles and it made my pores more visible. I agree with the others that the color range is limited. I chose Medium and it's the right shade for me. I think I'll stick to my HG foundation, Color Stay liquid, and use this when I want something fast and easy.
Update: As much as I wanted to like this foundation, I now find that it oxidizes on me and turns orange. It also emphasizes pores and line and melts off before the day is over. I have brought this down to 1 lippie. I'm giving it one lippie because it's innovative but not because it works well.
A Mineral foundation that feels a little wet when first applied is kind of weird. However, the coverage and natural finish is great! Some have claimed that this is too sparkly, I find it to have just a subtle glow. After all many mineral foundations are loaded with either mica or bismuth. For a drugstore product, it's expensive. I paid $12US for this on sale. You do get a lot though, about 9.9g. The packaging for the brush is clever and the bristles are that really soft synthetic type but I certainly wouldn't use it instead of a good regular brush. It also could use a screen or something to keep the powder from getting too messy. Still, I love this foundation. The shade practically disappears into my skin and applying this is a cinch. It actually looks better on me than the liquid Illamasqua Rich foundation that I recently bought which cost $32US.
