Awful. Yes, awful. It looks so oily when applied, and not only that, it doesn't blend. I've tried fingers and a brush, it's just awful. It makes my pores look huge, and the redness I have on my cheeks, it just glides over, offering no coverage. The redness I have is not quite moderate, but needs coverage, and this just goes over it, and vanishes. It's awful. I can't even describe how much I hate it. SO cakey looking, and heavy feeling. If you have dry skin, red skin, large pores, or don't like heavy, cakey makeup, do NOT buy. This is just terrible. Thank goodness this was given to me by a friend. She couldn't carry aerosol cans on her flight, so she gave it to me, and I will not purchase! I'll stick with my HG Maybelline Superstay 24hr. It's NEVER let me down.
I HATED IT. To put it in simple terms!
I literally returned it to Target; I exchanged it Revlon's Color Stay Foundation. I am a NC18, for reference, and I got the color in something with beige in the name... the color sucked, of course.
First of all, it always dispenses way too much. With one squirt, I got a glob that covered the back of my hand. It comes out a foam, but it deflates to a weird liquid the second you touch it. I applied it a couple of times with a sponge, with my MAC 188 brush, with my fingers, and with a kabuki brush. Every time, it turned out horrible! It provided very little, uneven coverage. It made my skin look oily, and I have very dry skin! I tried different powders to try to set it and get some of the shine to go away.... Nothing worked, even my trusty MAC prep and prime transparent finishing powder! It also caked by my nose and cheeks, then it all together disappeared! I would never reccommend this to anybody!
I have super oily skin but I used my primer underneath this, which is Korres matte right now, I bought golden beige and caramel. I love this, I did put a dot of the normal colorstay on each cheek and my forehead and then a dot of this and blended with my flat brush and it looks amazing and has all day. I touched up once. LOVE IT.
I'm a makeup junkie, always trying new products. A friend recommended revlon photo ready mousse foundation, and I'm OBSESSED! I put on a bb (tinted moisturizer) cream before, then use the foundation. My face looks dewy and almost flawless. I'm soo surprised by the poor rating, because for 13 dollars this foundation works like a 30 -40 dollar one. I probably would not recommend this for oily skin types, as it may look too dewy and shiny. However, for those that are normal to dry, this foundation will work perfect.
Do I love this product ... Yes
Does it look heavy ... Noo , actually after an hour of wearing, it looks like I'm not wearing makeup, and that I'm naturally flawless .
Does it give you a natural glow... Yes
Skin type recommendations ... Normal, combo, and dry ... Would not recommend for oily skin types ( will be to shiny )
Perfect for that summer glow you want :)
I've read some of the negative reviews, and I think it comes down to application as I am in love with this product - when I apply it "right".
Over a primer (which is a must for me in the summer), I "mist" my face with one of those aerosol cans of water and then dispense a small amount on the back of my hand. Less is more. Dot it on my now damp face (not too damp though) and then blend with my fingers. REALLY blend. Don't be overly fussy about it, it will blend right in to your skin as you blend and move it around.
I prefer this over Revelon CS for the summer. The application I mentioned gives me medium coverage and although I do need a powder - I need a powder for EVERY foundation. Excellent product though. Will repurchase.
wow I was surprised to see this have such a low rating. I loved this foundation. I think it's my new hg! This stuff doesn't sparkle or glitter at all. It just reflects light in all the right places to make it look like you have a flawless 'photoready' complexion. I do have a t-zone that normally gets shiny but it didn't with this foundation, nor did it emphasize any shininess. It lasts all day too! The consistency is very light and airy but it gives medium-full coverage and you can layer it if you need to. Also conceals redness. I apply this with a sonia kasuk beauty blender. I just use a pump or two of this and I'm all set.
I love this foundation! It has just enough coverage that when used with concealer, my skin looks flawless. I wasn't expecting it to turn into liquid when you touch it, but no complaints. Blends very well and lasts for a while. It covers great and doesn't feel heavy. Great. (:
Great product. I normally spend $30-45 for foundation. When my favorite lightweight foundation was discontinued, I decided to try this product. I never like drugstore products, but this product is amazing.
What I like about it...
lightweight, natural finish (between a tinted moisterizer and foundation)
Blendable and very easy to apply
The mousse despenses the perfect amount
Natural looking coverage
This has got to be the worst foundation I've used all around. It smells bad, has no lasting power, it's sparkles that just make oily skin look like total crap minutes after its applied and the pump is horrible, no matter how much I try, even if I barely press it own I get a whole crap load of foundation all over my hands. I can't find a single good thing about this and I tried applying it in all different ways with every product I had to try and make it work, but nope not a single thing was good about this product. And this was my very first Revlon product and it was so disappointing but I'm glad I decided to give this brand another chance because their colorstay is amazing.
Recently i was talking to a girl in my class and i complimented her on how awsome her foundation looked and i complained about how mine always looks cakey. It gets really dry and cracked around my acne which draws more attention to what im trying to hide.I had never found a foundation that gave me a flawless finish. She recommended that i try a mousse foundation because it goes on smoother and is actually better for your skin. I picked up this foundation and instanly fell head over heals in love! the thing is i bought a shade a tad to dark but it actually worked out wonderfully when i mix it with(my too light)photoready foundation.The slight shimmer in both makes my usually dry skin look magical. It does NOT look cakey at all which is incredible to me. This is my HG foundation!
-thx for the recommendation hanna!!!
