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!!!

I can not believe only 30% liked/would buy again this foundation. I have used the original PhotoReady in the pump bottle and thought it was one of two of my favorite drugstore/Walmart foundations. I think the PhotoReady in the pump bottle bettered many prestige/department store/Sephora foundations. It's only draw back being the color selection. However, if you found a color that matched your skin tone/undertone precisely than you found yourself a very special base, period. I think the same holds true of this Airbrush Mousse makeup. I have both in Golden Beige and it's dead on perfect for my coloring. This newer mousse version has all the same qualities I've always loved: It blends beautifully and is buildable in it's coverage, though a single application covers quite well without a second coat. I even think the coverage to this Airbrushed Mousse Makeup is more concentrated than the liquid PhotoReady in the pump bottle. You need far less of this mousse than you would the older liquid PhotoReady. I would almost classify this as a medium to full coverage base. It is not sheer by any means. This is what sets it apart: You would be fooled to think because of it's "foam, mousse like" texture it would have less coverage than a liquid or even a cream, but not true. Somehow this base covers like a sponge on cream/emollient based makeup yet does not look as if it is heavy in that respect. I think it has to do with the refined pigments and the delivery system (aerosol) it uses. It looks like skin as opposed to makeup. It virtually looks good in any lighting (which is not an easy task. HOWEVER: If it looks overly shiny to you such as in daylight, you've applied too much, which is easy considering it comes out so quickly and in a foam consistency. That doesn't mean you have to use every last bit that comes out!) It wears extraordinary well, losing some of it's coverage, in a most usual manner, as the day progresses. After 8-12 hours of wear it is still holding up and certainly leaves enough behind that when cleansed off there is quite a bit to remove. It will make any skin look more refined: Good skin looks absolutely fabulous, mediocre skin looks good, problem skin (uneven tone, scarred, pitted, large pored) looks much better and refined with this base. I'm not sure what more one could ask for in a foundation. This newer, mousse version of PhotoReady ups the ante. It's even more skin like in it's dried down/powdered final finish. It definitely looks more "airbrushed" like than the pump bottle as I think the pigments are a bit finer in texture, then add it's aerosol/mousse delivery system and you have an even more refined finish. I love it. You end up with (if you are lucky enough to hit your shade on the money) a base that rivals the Chanel's and Dior's and the rest of the upper echelon foundations which cost upwards of 40-50 dollars for one ounce. That's how good I think this new Revlon PhotoReady Airbrush Mousse Makeup is. It'll give the prestige brands a run for their money!!!!!
ADDENDUM: This Airbrush Mousse Makeup has a bit more of a reflective quality to it than the PhotoReady in the pump bottle, but it is this very finish which gives this makeup a lit from within quality to the skin which is almost always lacking in less expensive drugstore/Walmart foundations. It is not a frosted look by any means, but more akin to mineral liquid/powder foundations. I rather like it more than a very flat finish most bases procure. Also I highly suggest you powder this base to set it. Make sure you use a loose powder and a nice fluffy brush. A finely milled loose powder should be used ( I like Dior's Loose Powder as their pigments are finely milled, though a less expensive one by MAC or even L'Oreal will do nicely.) You don't have to powder it down everywhere, but at least the nose, chin and forehead. A good quality loose powder sets foundation like nothing else will and allows powdered eyeshadows and blush to adhere much more evenly and nicely. I know many will argue that powder just adds to one's lines/dryness, but that is from the powders of decades ago or just even years ago. Loose powder today (if it is of high quality) will not exaggerate fine lines and dryness. Never apply powder to the under/outer eye area and keep it away from the lines that run from outer corner of nose to outer corner of mouth (nasolabial folds.) A trick of the trade is to take a rich cream (dense with some emollient sheen to it) and lightly tap a small amount as a last step to areas that may look dry: outer corner of eyes, atop your concealer and along the nasolabial lines. It just adds a bit of moisture and sheen to these areas and will float any talc from foundation, concealer and powder out from under the lines.
OH and by the WAY: I used a primer over my moisturizer and beneath this makeup (Rimmel's #002.)

This product isn't for me, but it DOES work in certain situations, so I'm giving it a 3 instead of a 2.
This is a light to medium coverage foundation that comes out of the bottle like a mousse, but turns in to a very creamy liquid as soon as you touch it. It applies beautifully and feels really nice on the skin, but you will have to wait about 3 to 5 minutes for it to dry down completely. The wear time is decent on my combination-dry skin; I'd say it lasted for about 4 or 5 hours before I had to powder my t-zone.
I also kind of like the bottle, as the nozzle acts sort of like a pump. It's hard to control the amount you get, though, so be careful!
Now, the biggest problem people have with PhotoReady products is that they're "sparkly." Buy one and people will start cracking jokes about how you want to look like a Twilight vampire. Honestly? They're not THAT bad. Yes, they have microphone shimmer, but the only time I could see it was when I stood in direct sunlight, stared at my face, and held a mirror about 6 inches away from my skin. It also picked up a bit in one picture (see above), but nothing too crazy. Hence, this is really not a daytime foundation. I mean, really, don't wear it to your family picnic; you'll look like a pixie to people standing close to you. However, it looks like absolutely lovely, glowy skin in low light or on an indoors video. The biggest problem, for me, was the shade range: all of the shades are very yellow or very pink, and the lightest shade made my N10 skin look jaundiced.
Overall, this is not the foundation for me. The shades are too pink or too yellow, it sparkles in the daylight, and it won't last through one of my very long workdays. However, it did look nice on video and in lowlight, and it was ok in pictures. If you want to use it as a going-out foundation, I say go for it.

The pump is absolutely out of control! a small squeeze come out a fist size of foam, what a waste! The mousse itself is just ok, very little coverage. Can't find a match for my Asian skin tone.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Combination Hair: Brunette Eyes: Hazel
Absolute crap. Settled quickly into fine lines. Almost no coverage and leaves a greasy sheen. Can't imagine what type of skin condition/climate this might work in. Maybe for someone with very clear, very perfect skin in a low humidity but not dry area...but where is that? and if you have that perfect of skin, why use any foundation? This is utter JUNK.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
I really am impressed with this foundation. The coverage is light but buildable. I like that it lets your natural skin come through. I have gotten compliments when wearing this I don't even get compliments when I wear my MUFE or MAC. I set this with MAC loose powder it looks really nice.

I too had to register to this site just to give my positive comment in response to all the negative ones.
I have four different foundations at home, and am not happy with ANY of them. I am always in search of the "perfect foundation" - and when I came across this one - it was "The One".
I can not bare the "caked" feel and prefer a more natural look.
This goes on SO lightly and smoothly, I don't even notice that I am wearing any foundation. It is also buildable and I literally feel airbrushed! I love the "dewiness" - I do not find it too shiny or sparkly. I feel like I have a healthy glow. I would choose this above any matte foundation any day.
I did NOT notice any bad smell and I do not have a problem with it coming out of the container. I also do not find it messy.
To me, this is the best foundation that I have ever tried. The colour is also perfect for my skin tone.

This was really bad for several reasons: First of all I have oily skin and this just accentuated that. It also made my pores look larger. It did cover all redness, etc so that's good I suppose, but not worth it for the greasy look.
The pump on this is awful. Either a lot of product or not enough will come out, you never know. You can't just pump it gently (or at least I can't) you have to give it a good squeeze and then too much usually ends up on your hand. It's not necessarily a big mess, it's just way more than your face needs.
It also dries to a much darker color than it appears at first. I am extremely pale so I got this in the lightest shade and I looked orange within a few hours. Orange and sparkly (the shimmer in this is really overwhelming).
And finally, it smells absolutely terrible. I don't know who would benefit from a product like this - maybe someone who is darker than me and has very dry skin and doesn't mind the gross scent?

When I bought the new Revlon Photoready Mousse Make-up, I was already a user of the old Photoready Makeup (which I loved), so I thought I would try the Mousse makeup and see what it was like. Not a good choice! I absolutely hated it. Here are some reasons why...
1st - the pump is awful, you can never get out the exact amount of make-up that you would like. Big waste.
2nd - It made my face look greasy, and every time I touched my face, the make-up would rub off.
3rd - I looked sparkly. Having a sparkley face is not a good look, in my opinion, serveral people even noticed it and commented.
4th - It smelled horrible. I've never owned any make-up that smelled worse than this did
5th - When used near my eyes, it made my eyes burn, and water.
6th - I didn't find that it had good coverage to begin with, and as the day went on, the look of the make-up got worse, and worse...
...and last, and definitely the worst part, it made my skin breakout in acne. It was horrible. My face is now healing from the mess this Mousse Make-up caused. I switched back to the older Photoready foundation, and I couldn't be happier that I did. I would not recommend the PhotoReady Mousse Make-up to anyone, instead, I would recommend the older one (in the glass bottle), it's a much better product!

Instant break outs. I don't remember if any other product gave be zits right away like this has. Lightest shade was actually very good, light enough for my fair skin and neutral, which is a rarity to come by, so many are too pink or too yellow, but that's the only good thing about it. When I looked at myself in a mirror from afar it looked ok, when I came closer it was horrible. It pooled into my pores, accentuated them (and my pores are not even big and normally barely visible), and made my skin look bumpy and uneven toned in general, which is funny since foundation supposed to do the opposite. Packaging is crap. Too much came out with just one pump and 'Highly flammable' warning made me a little nervous to keep this in my house lol. To be fair, I guess for this type of product there must have been no other way to package it.

This didn't do anything for me. Perhaps it's not good for dry skin but the foundation settled on me in a really weird way. It also smells really weird so I had to just wash it off right away! I'm sensitive to smell so I couldn't take it. It might be one of those scents that triggers some people but others won't notice it. It's also expensive for drugstore and I feel like if I actually liked this, I will go through the bottle pretty fast...

I love the regular Revlon Photoready foundation in the glass bottle. When I first saw this new range launched in US, I know that I must try it, thinking that it could be as good as the current one that I love.
It was not available then in Singapore, I practically "beg" my sis to bring back for me when she was in states
I got the mousse in Nude and the primer.
Within 30 minutes of application with a foundation brush, face looked flawless, but somehow thru the day, it just oxidise on my face and it looks horrible and I looked so washed out.
I had tried it with some many different primers, hoping that I can match and mix to find one that "ease" off the issue but it just does not works.
Perhaps someone could share with me their tips on making this foundation works for them.
