Review of Revlon PhotoReady Powder - Fair/Light by SymmieC
Love barely begins to describe my feelings about this product. I have exceedingly fair skin. There is no point in fighting it. I have litterally been asked by children if my skin glitters in the sun. In all seriousness though, the quest for good products on truly fair skin is a nightmare. I am lucky in the respect that I have a fairly "flawless" complextion. I am unlucky in the fact that it is balanced out by dark undereye circles which are genetic. So I have three options at the start of my day, sunglasses, full makeup, or spend the day recieving well wishes and hopes for my quick recovery from whatever illness is making me look aweful. So it is safe to assume that I have spent alot of money and time in the search for the perfect fair skin products. I finally stumbled across this little gem and I could not be happier. I use PR foundation in Vanilla (perfect match to my skin). I then use covergirl fresh complextion concealer (I have a long term relationship with that product). I use PR in fair/light to set it. This is the only combination of products I have used ever that completely matches my skin, provides flawless coverage, does not settle into fine lines, wears all day with no touch up, does not oxidate (turn orange). I love, love, love it. However the brush it comes with is aweful, don't even bother. I use a Kabuki brush. Though I do save the brush it comes with because I have found it works well to sweep away falldown from applying eyeshadow! Works great for that purpose actually! The product does have a light sparkle however I hardly ever notice it, there is no way it is even close to "glitter". I will be honest though I don't think this is a good choice for people who have very oily or acne prone skin as it does nothing to control oil, nor does it provide good coverage for acne. Other then that it is awesome, and stays true to color which is hard to find in fair makeup! :) I stock up with this like the apocolypse is coming. <3 it and will use it until they stop making it.
