Latest REVLON Reviews

PhotoReady Candid Natural Finish Anti-Pollution Foundation

NC15/20 combo with melasma. I tried this out for one afternoon so far and I really liked it. Applied with a sponge gave natural look coverage, and Revlon’s shade ’buff’ 120 seems to match me well in all their foundations. I'm olive yellow with no pink tones and liked how this looked and the color was a good match. I do think it darkened as time went on. It blurred and didn't give me an aged, drying look. Evened out my skin nicely and wasn't overly dry. I bought the same shade in the ‘Glow’ version as well, and both looked the same. I think the glow version was more sheer, and I also saw small shimmer particles, but nothing you could see from normal distance, just up close. I’m thinking about mixing the two and see how they wear together. Will also test further, as this has some comedogenic ingredients and I have reactive skin.

Skinlights - Prismatic Bronzer

Revlon re-released their Skinlights line in 2019 with products focusing on a luminous glow that's been in vogue on Instagram for the last few years. I picked up the Prismatic Bronzer in 110 by chance and used it as a contour, and loved it so much I went back and bought the 115 bronzer too! There are very few reviews on this product, and they're all mixed. This review would be one praising this product. What drew me to this bronzer (even though I use it as a contour) is that it is GLOWY. The finish is satiny and similar to Mac's Skinfinish. It is not matte or powdery - where it looks like a muddy, random streak on your cheek - the color dimensional and shifts depending on how the light hits your face. Just like a shadow. The pigmentation is also GOOF-PROOF. I like to build up the color in layers so there aren't any harsh edges with this product. Personally, I use an angled blush brush to sweep the color from my cheek to hairline. If I used a fluffy blush as an all-over bronze color, it would really spice up my skintone. The Prismatic Bronzer in 110 is more red-based than 115, the 115 version is slightly deeper, golden, and more suited to olive tones. I have neutral skin but use a foundation that's golden, but both still look fine on me. These two do have some microglitter but it's not noticeable unless you're seeking it out. It sells for $12 for 0.3oz and performs similarly to mid-range and luxe bronzers (the drugstore is coming back with a vengeance!!!). Also, love the packaging: black and gold. Simple and chic, can't be beat.

PhotoReady Rose Glow™ Hydrating & Illuminating Primer

Mmh. I am on the fence about this primer. Let me start by saying that I haven't used many primers in my time; as I feel using moisturiser before applying my foundation is sufficient. But I was intrigued by this primer and would constantly test it out on my hand whenever I was in the store. Eventually, I decided I would splurge and see what all the fuss was about - at that point I had noticed that it was always out of stock - so I had to try it for myself. It is a water based primer, so has a lovely texture which glides on the skin with ease, a light & fast absorbing formula. Pearlescent quartz give an almost glitter-like effect and boosts the skin's radiance, for that 'glow'. Botanical extracts and oil beads ensure that it moisturises the skin, it smells like rose water - which excites the senses! So far, so good... Here's where my problem lies. The damn oil beads don't dissolve adequately and stick to your face, so you don't get a smooth application of foundation. Although, this may be an issue I experience because I apply it directly to my face, where Revlon suggests you rub it in your fingertips first (Blonde moment). The packaging sucks. It is in a plastic dropper bottle which for starters, feels cheap and doesn't work. [I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and assume mine has a defect]. Regardless, not a fan. Lastly, I ended up with tiny pimples/dry skin, almost a rash, all over my face and my best guess is that this primer is the culprit! Perhaps, it isn't compatible with my sensitive, combination skin. Pros - Wonderful texture - Smells great - Moisturising, but lightweight Cons - Expensive - Horrible packaging
