I was so excited to try Revlon’s newest foundation. The idea of a foundation that creates a flawless canvas for photos excited me. Sadly, it failed to come through. The foundation was very shimmery. It made it look like you were sweating and shiny in photos. However, it did go on very smoothly. Photoready provided medium coverage and was not greasy or oily. From afar, the foundation made my skin look flawless, but up close, it made my pores extremely noticeable. It seemed to have settled in my pores. I suppose it did make my skin look presentable in photos, minus the shimmer that made me look shiny. In person though, it did not look good. I guess if you want a foundation specifically for photos and not many people will be seeing your skin, give it a try. It might work for you. If you wanted an everyday foundation or a foundation for special occasions, this is not it.
Revlon Colorstay Mineral Mousse Makeup ($13.99) A flawless matte finish in a refreshingly lightweight mousse.
- Unique, air-whipped texture for a soft matte finish.
- 16-hour ColorStay Longwear for lasting perfection.
This foundation feels very light. It’s easy to apply and blendable. I wouldn’t recommend layering on layers because it will end up looking cakey. The staying power is great and easily removable when you wash your face. It’s a matte foundation that does stay matte for the majority of the day. People who are really oily may need a little powdering touch-up. It hasn’t caused any breakouts (thank goodness!). I wouldn’t recommend the foundation for people with dry skin or winter usage because it can/will accentuate dry spots. This is more for people who have oily skin and during the summer.
Revlon Custom Creations Foundation ($13.99) Innovative bottle offers five shade settings, making it easy to fine-tune your foundation shade for the perfect match. Simply turn the dial to adjust shade from lighter to darker. Lightweight formula blends seamlessly into skin for a naturally flawless look. Available in a range of skin tones from light to deep. SPF 15.
This foundation is very clever. You can customize your own shade of foundation. It’s great for transitioning between seasons. The foundation is a bit drying, so if you have dry skin you should avoid this or moisturize well before applying it. It provides medium to full coverage depending how much you apply.
