Great foundation for anyone looking for medium to full coverage. The compact makes this very travel friendly. This foundation is oil free and does not irritate my sensitive skin or break me out. Although it is a cream to powder formula I do find I need to set this with a finishing powder but once I do this lasts me all day. It comes with a sponge but I would advise against using it for applying this makeup. It will apply the makeup too thick and make you look cakey. I prefer to apply this with my Sonia Kashuk Buffing Brush. I just tap the brush into the product lightly and stipple/buff it onto my skin. I find this method applies the perfect amount of product so the results look natural. For the summer I wear the color Honey Beige and when I am really tanned like in my profile picture, Toast..
This is my all time favourite compact! I have been using this product for the past 5 years now in Toast(09). The texture of it is pretty heavy so you can opt to skip your concealer if you do not have overly pigmented dark spots. Suitable for dry or combination skin, as it can get pretty oily after a while especially in hot and humid weather conditions. Overall I still consider this to be a great product because it stays true to it's name "one-step". There is no need to apply concealer or dust loose powder, but it depends on your preference. And the packaging is pretty nice, considering the fact that it is very reasonably priced.
I absoloutely love this makeup. Gives a great full coverage, and is super easy to apply. I don't use a concealor underneath it, although I do have clear skin. Stays put all day and doesn't rub off on clothes. Doesn't clog pores, easy to remove, matte finish and I'v never broken out from it. It doesn't last that long though, and costs $35 (Aus), they would be the only negatives. Would recommend this to anyone who wants a full coverage without looking like you have caked on layers and layers of foundation.
This product is listed here twice with two sets of reviews, but it's the same thing - Revlon New Complexion One Step Compact Makeup.
It is a creme foundation that comes with a sponge applicator. I use it in Ivory Beige 01. I like to apply it with my fingers, not the sponge.
What I like about it is:
- very creamy consistency to use as a concealer or touch up the face when I don't want to spend time applying a liquid. I would not use it all over the face as it would be too much.
- It dries to a nice matte finish and stays all day.
- It is very fast and easy to use if you are in a hurry.
- It has no scent.
- It lasts. I've had this for at least 3 years and it is like new. It is my go-to foundation/concealer when I only have 5 minutes to do makeup.
I literally used this ONE time and returned it. It looked good and had great coverage when first applied and set. No more then 2 hours later did I regretted using this. I use Milk of Magnesia as a primer to control my oily skin & that lasts me all day. Under this makeup? NOPE. This literally melted right off of my face and looked like I never put makeup on to begin with. Literally in a matter of 2 hours. I looked like a oily splotchy mess. All I saw was pores and all my scars. It looked like I tried to wipe it off with a tissue or something. This was completely horrible for me.
By all means not the worst foundation I have ever tried. It has a very full coverage which i liked however looked horrible and flakey on my dry skin and I ended up tossing it after converting to estee lauder DW.
This is a decent, and I think it would work well on combination to oily skin. I've always loved cream foundations for their convenience & portability, the fact that they can be sheered out or easily built up for more coverage. I like that they're kinda like a concealer and foundation all in one.
I use this for my dark circles which are fairly bad, and the redness around my nose and chin, and any random spot or discoloration on my face. It does cover fairly well. I've never been one to wear foundation all over my face, I usually just spot conceal, so I need something that blends in really well with my skin and looks uber natural, being that I'm not putting it all over my face and blending it down my neck. This does blend in fairly well in the summer, but even the lightest shade is too dark in the winter.
Revlon DEF needs to come out with some lighter shades. I absolutely hate this about DS companies, they never have very pale (or very dark shades for that matter.) Everyone should be able to wear makeup, and it really sucks that some women can't even find their shade! I am not even THAT pale, and I still have a hard time with DS cosmetics. It must really, really suck for girls that are paler than me! That's why I generally go for HE, it's so much easier to find that perfect color match. But even some HE companies have a terrible shade selection. Lisa Eldridge just did a great video on foundations that work for very pale skin, if anyone is interested, u can go to lisaeldridge.com to watch it.
I'm NC15 and the lightest shade in this, Ivory Beige, is more of an NC20 or NC25,. If you're NC20 the lightest shade will probably be perfect for you. This foundation has this weird ability to kind of blend in with your skin and sort of adjust to your skin tone. Even when I was all fake tanned last week, I could wear this on my face and it looked fine, and I was probably NC30 then.
I am mostly a mid/high end makeup lover but there is def some DS makeup that I still like/love. This is one of those DS products that I always go back to. I don't love it, but I like it. I've never used it up, you get a lot of product, and the packaging is really great, it's a nice slim compact, with a separate compartment for the sponge. I just use my clean fingers to apply tho .
The only thing is, I have more normal to dry skin, and this is NOT great if your skin is very dry. It will accentuate dry patches, so I usually use a heavier moisturizer like Nivea Creme underneath on really dry days, and it's fine. That's why I said it would probably work better on more oily skin, because it's a creme to powder foundation with more of a matte finish. I do prefer more of a dewy finish, but in the places where I use this, like undereyes and around my nose, I don't care that it's not a dewy finish. Who wants to be dewy around their nose?
I don't see myself repurchasing this simply because I'm always looking for the next best thing. Ahhh, the perils of a makeup junkie! I did put yes I'd repurchase tho, because I didn't want to bring down the rating because it is a good product. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a good DS creme foundation/concealer. I recently got the fancypants Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua creme compact foundation as a gift, & even tho I have that, I still find myself reaching for this some days, so it must be pretty good! Sorry if this is too long. I tend to write very thorough reviews so that I can be helpful to others because I always turn to reviews on MUA to help me!
I bought this product ard AUD$35 pretty expensive for a drugs store compact its okay if it is a good product but i only used two or three times then i throw it to the rubbish bin .
i have dry skin it made my skin looks terrible after 2 hrs i applied this compact!
i think i will stick with MAC stuido fix compact !
I bought this thinking it was a powder - apparently I can't read so well. It was one of the buy one get one at Walgreens so it was free for me since I bought something else by revlon. I don't really like it but I don't hate it either. Packaging is amazing though. Doesn't give that much coverage, more like a tinted moisturizer effect which is good for like the weekend, but not work, going out etc.. Colors are a little misleading, really one shade darker than thy say, but the colors are nice and bright, not dull. If you use a little bit at a time you can blend it in to match with no problem. I can't return it unfortunately because it was free, so I use it for cover up over foundation and under my eyes since the colors a little darker. If you want something very light that doesn't look like you're wearing makeup and you don't need coverage of any sort really, I recommend it, otherwise, I wouldn't bother.
I absolutely love this makeup its so creamy with full coverage and the color perfectly matched my skin tone and it didnt make my face oily at all and last about 10hours before this i will wear the maybelline matte mousse but now this is my every day make up and til now i wil not change it!
