**EDIT 1/24/12: This foundation now oxidizes after a few hours and takes on a horrible sparkly Oompa Loompa-esque orange while settling into the creases on my face. Will no longer purchase nor use this product.**

After a hiatus from foundation due to lack of need (and general poverty), I saw this at the drugstore and thought, why not. Everyone and their mother on YT has reviewed it.

Calling all DDDs with yellow undertones- I was able to immediately spot my color, Caramel, without a second glance. Very impressive for a d/s product. I'm around NC45 for reference.

I applied this on my t-zone and blended with a damp sponge. The shade is a great match and I'm really excited about it. I honestly only have to cover dark circles and I use concealer for that so I can't speak much for the opacity/coverage of this product. It was seamless on my face if that helps.

I knocked off a point because I think $10 is kind of annoying for a d/s product and there are tiny microshimmers in this stuff. I HATE anything less than matte on my face. Powder on top cancelled any shimmer/shine potential but that was a setback.

I am more and more impressed with the quality of drugstore makeup and this foundation was no exception.

This foundation is just meh. The finish looks nice.. for the most part.. it seems to emphasize any dry spots. And, to agree with a good number of the previous reviews, it fades pretty quickly, even with a primer. Coverage is a little light for my liking also. Im NC15ish in MAC and the lightest shade was a little too light, so if I was going to repurchase I would get the #2 shade.

I'm always on the lookout for a good foundation, and I had heard so many rave reviews on this, so I found a coupon (lucky me) and decided to give it a try.
I was coming from just using Clinique foundation, which I loved to no end, so I was really hoping that PhotoReady would be as great.
I loved it. It gave my face a dewy glow, and once set with powder, my skin looked flawless!
I used it all up! I loved it so much!
I still haven't gone back to get any more though, because my skin doesn't get as many zits as it used to, so I just use concealer and powder over primer.
But I definitely will go back and get it when I need it!

Pretty much the worst foundation I have purchased.

Shows every pore and line. Fades off by end of day (actually fades off the top, sinks into pores).

I had been putting off trying this product for a long time, but I finally decided to bite the bullet and try it for myself. I absolutely LOVED it. Yes, it has a little bit of shimmer to it, but not to much. I applied it with a brush, then took a makeup sponge, wet it, and use that to blot my face. It gives a nice airbrushed appearance. I did not find the need to set it with powder, because when I tried with the corresponding powder, I looked a little cakey. I would try it, and if it doesn't work for you, return it. No harm done.

Ok I brought this because I didn't like Colorstay too much. I did a small test of the two foundations, one on each side of my face. Colorstay covered better but looked fakeish. Photoready covered ok, but was dewy (which I know some don't like).

So what did I decide to do?

MIX THE TWO! Add more or less on the one you prefer, to get more or less coverage etc. But alone, each of these foundations were missing something, but adding them together made it awesome! Give it a try!

This product isn't terrible, it just isn't great. It does nothing to give you that wow factor, nor is it long lasting. With my oily skin i felt as if the makeup just melted off after a couple hours. It looks good at first but then an hour or two out of your day you might as well be wearing no makeup at all. Pump works well and you don't need alot for coverage, product lasts a long time.
This is just your average store brand foundation.

Wow. I picked this up to help cover up a small hormonal breakout and POOF my face exploded. The glittery things in it didn't help the look of my skin either; it seemed oily and magnified my zits....not what I wanted lol! So I'm gonna go with NO on this one.

This product sucks! It barely gave me any coverage. It made my pores and acne much more visible. It was also very chalky on my skin. All I love is the container because it has a pump. I just wish that the Revlon Colorstay would have the same container as this one.

I really just did not like this foundation. I tried it with a couple times with a foundation brush and and a couple times with just my fingers. The stuff was just really cakey and shiny and looked very powdery.
