Wow I absolutely love this product. My only con is that is oxidizes after wearing it all day and sometimes if I put too much on it cakes up. Other than that, this is my new favorite foundation. It is a bit pricey for drugstore makeup ($18 CAD!!) I have used their photo ready line before and decided to try the foundation. I am definitely not disappointed with this purchase. I use the photo ready conceal underneath, 3D mascara and powder. Their whole line is great for beginners that want a more full coverage. It is quite buildable and blends fairly well. I don't know what people are talking about with the sparkles/glitter... I definitely don't have any glitter in my foundation whatsoever. Bottom line is try it out for yourself - I definitely recommend and will repurchase.
It is a good foundation however it made me break out in horrible small pimples all over my forehead and I have relatively acne free skin. I would recommend it if that didn't happen!
This is actually a great foundation. I think this gets lots of crap because many females don't know how to do their own makeup and probably put on a shimmery blush along with a shimmery bronzer and shimmery eyeshadow so of course you'll look like a disco ball! When I use this foundation it applies very nicely and it matches my skin tone nicely. Overall I really like this foundation. Also when I wear this I make sure everything else I apply is matte and I skip this highlighter just because those reflectors in this foundation is built in highlight so that's a tip for y'all there!! No Hate I just tell it like it is!
oh my god, unfortunately the worst foundation i have ever used. it is full of tiny glitters - so you will look like disco ball, especially when you are outside and sun is shining. it also looks really cakey on the face and colour range in not the best. it was not cheap.
bought after all rave comments from bloggers and youtubers this was big disappointment for me.
edit: i have to add after reading another review that i am not using any blush, eyeshadows etc...just and only foundation (by flat top brush) and mattifying (!) powder, so unfortunately - this makes me look like a disco ball :-( even people around me realized i am shining (embarassing, yeek).
The shade's a good match for my skin, the pump is really helpful since the previous foundation I tried didn't have one so that was a bonus
after using it for a few weeks, i did notice it oxidizing to a darker orangey/tan colour, it wasn't snooki orange, it was bearable. It doesn't stay very well, you need to set it really well and the coverage isn't really the best. after your face gets oily, the oily parts start showing your actual skin and shows my post acne spots. It is buildable but for my preference, i don't like wearing really heavy make up even if it's just foundation. I'd want to run home and wash it all off after a whole school day. All those oils build ups on it is just a really yucky feeling.
I used to use the colorstay one and when this came out i was expecting this to be a lot better than the colorstay. But too bad it doesn't even near as good as colorstay. I don't know why Revlon have poor color selection. My colorstay gets too light and my photoready is too dark on my skin. So aside from that, the foundation has sparkle. A lot of sparkle. But it doesn't really showing though. The texture is hard to blend. I got really cakey all the time. I only use this for like 2 times and stop, it end up in my make up case forever. I won't repurchase.
Was very disappointed by this foundation :(. When the HD foundations rolled onto the market by the truckload, I was excited to see a version by Revlon (love their Colorstay foundation)...but my excitement was short-lived. Snatched it up along with the Photoready perfecting primer, LOVED the primer but HATED the foundation. No matter how I apply it, this foundation sets up very cakey on my skin and dries to a finish that's far from "photo ready". It sinks into fine lines quickly, making them super noticeable, is difficult to blend, and looks "makeup-y" no matter what shade I try. It seemed to magnify every imperfection I have! I've tried different primers, brushes, sponges, etc...nothing makes this product look natural on me. My powder even sits on top of it and looks awful...this one just doesn't work for me I guess...oh well, on to the next great thing! ;-).
I have this foundation in Nude 004 for $40 at Big W and what are the bad things that I can say about it? Nothing. This foundation is by far the best foundation I have ever tried and I have tried many.
I found that before I tried this foundation i have really big pores on my cheeks and as soon as I applied this foundation it completely covered up my pores and the occasional pimples that i get from time to time. I notice that a lot of girls complain about the shimmer, There is not much shimmer in this foundation if you are complaining about the shimmer in this one go ahead and try the Revlon PhotoReady Airbrush foundation. It is twice as bad.
Overall. Love this product.
This product is awful. I know it has many 5 star ratings, but it didn't work for me. The color selection isn't great, but I did find 005 to be close enough, at least for the first few minutes. I was able to get a nice thin layer on, which is enough to even out your skin tone. And then it oxidizes almost immediately. ORANGE FACE after a few minutes. I've worn this foundation for several weeks now. The oxidization wasn't so bad the first few times I wore this, but it's been awful this week. I keep trying it on with different products underneath (sunscreen, moisturizer, primer, etc) in hopes of finding a combination of products that minimizes the oxidization, but no luck :(
The only reason I gave this 2 lippies is because of the pump, otherwise, it'd be a total 0.
Well there goes another full bottle of foundation and $15 down the drain. Sorry, landfill! continued >>
I must say for a revlon product i was dissapointed.
This foundation is not as good as it is hyped up to be, upon applying it with my foundation brush i found that it had little coverage and had some form of pigmant to it. However the foundation can be buildable if you don't mind the sheen that comes with it, throughout the day i found that if my face came into contact with something the foundation would rub off allover it, not only this but the foundation became oiler and patchy during the day, i had to reapply often.
I didn't have any compliments on this foundation. However the colour match was fantastic, total let down by revlon. Nothing compared to colourstay which is one of my favourite foundations x
