hmmmm. this product disappointed me. for the first week or so of using it, it was fantastic! the color (tender peach 02) was perfect for my NC25 skin. It blended beautifully and was so light but with amazing coverage. but things started to turn around the three week mark, literally. i guessed it was from oxidation of the product, but it turned darker and more orangey and develop a weird smell. the consistency of the product stayed the same when i put it on my face but it was too dark! i'm guessing because when youre applying it the container is open and thus the air oxidizes the formula. what a same i thought i found my HG foundation.
This is the first foundation that I've had no complaints about and I have tried so many, gives my skin a glow but not a shine, and makes my skin look younger, also doesn't feel/look thick or cakey. It looks perfect with a light dusting of powder.
***Update*** I'm gonna have to change my mind on this one, it worked great for me at first, and the color was a perfect match for my skintone, but now the seasons changed and this makeup just can't take the heat, it slides right off my face, there's not enough powder to hold this one in place.
I'm usually a pretty big Revlon fan, but this leaves a lot to be desired. My first complaint is that the lightest shade, Ivory Beige, is way too dark to have the word "ivory" in it. Yipes. Second, while I like the fact that the little sponge applicator has its own little compartment under the foundation, that little spot has holes in it. That just makes me feel like dirt and whatever gross crap is riding around in my purse is getting through the holes and all over the sponge, which I will then rub all over my face... Finally, the price tag is outrageous for makeup that I can buy at Wal-Mart or a grocery store. For a few bucks more, I can go buy a much higher-end foundation.
Didn't really care for this..I just don't like thick layers on my skin which is what this is. I don't need a lot of coverage, tinted moisturizers work much better for me, but if you want coverage I'd think this is really nice. Got it in Tender Peach 02.
This is an HG for me. It's so smooth and easy to blend. My face looks flawless when I put this on. The cream formula covers so well that I sometimes don't have to apply concealer. The packaging is nice too. It looks really sleek and expensive, unlike other drugstore brand stuff and breaks apart because the packaging is such terrible quality (i.e. Revlon Brow Fantasy). I will totally buy this again.
I just bought this makeup in medium beige. I tried it once and I am going to be returning it. I will say one thing it does feel silky. It seemed ok when I first put it on, but also looked chalky. Within a couple of hours my face felt shiny and you could see the makeup in the pores. It actually rubs off very easily and rubbed off the concealer I had under my eyes, and you cannot reply as it turns into a powdery finish. I am a huge fan of the New Complexion liquid makeup, this cannot compare.
UPDATE: I am sensitive to silicones, and this has caused horrible breakouts. However, beyond that, it was too emollient. It never melded into my skin but rather, stayed on top in a slippery layer. It is definitely NOT "one step" as the title implies, b/c a setting powder would be needed. I found the texture on this to be much less desirable than StudioFix. YMMV, but not a keeper for me.
To start positively, I will start with the packaging. This foundation was packaged fairly nicely. Unlike most cake foundations where the sponge sits on top of the foundation, Revlon thought ahead to make a separate compartment for it underneath the cake of foundation. So the compact opens two ways: one way exposes the foundation and the mirror, while the other gives you the sponge. Opening it could get a little tricky, and if you aren't careful you might end up with stuff flying everywhere, but overall the packaging is not bad.
Aside from the packaging, I had several problems with this foundation. It is a compact foundation so it supposedly gives more coverage than other liquid foundations. My first problem with this product was the cakey finish it left on my skin. It wasn't easy to blend well, and it looked completely artificial, like a film left on my face. Yet on top of this, it still didn't do a great job of concealing my blemishes. I wouldn't recommend this foundation to people with dry skin, it would just accentuate the flakiness and the uneveness in the skin. People with oily skin might find that this works more for them. In short: Revlon advertises that this gives a natural finish. I found otherwise.
My second problem with this was the poor color selection. They did not have a compact that matched my medium to medium-dark skin with yellow undertones adequately. I found also that they do not manufacture shades for people with darker skintones.
Overall, this is a mediocre foundation that has a rather hefty price tag (around 12 USD) for a drugstore brand. continued >>
I was undecided on whether to give a good rating or a bad rating so I gave it an average. It's good because it's easy to apply, great coverage, and looks very smooth and even at first. However, you have to be conscious that you don't touch your face AT ALL throughtout the day, cos it comes right off with the slightest touch! Not long-lasting at all, which is a shame because it would've been a great foundation for someone after medium-full coverage.
I personally disliked this product. The shade I had matched alright, but after a few hours, the creamy texture crumpled together and looked horrible on my oily skin. It was after this that I realized I was more suited for powdery foundations. Alright coverage, and reasonable price. Worth the try, depending on the individual.
