Revlon Photoready Foundation Review

Share

Revlon Photoready Foundation ($13.49) Revlon PhotoReady™ Makeup – for poreless, airbrushed skin in any light. Photochromatic pigments bend and reflect light to erase every flaw. Complete, yet undetectable coverage. Soft, luminous finish.
- Oil free
- Fragrance free
- SPF 20

My Thoughts:

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.

Loreal Paris Age Pefect Skin Supporting and Hydrating Makeup Foundation Review

Loreal Paris Age Pefect Skin Supporting and Hydrating Makeup Foundation ($16.99) I know this is suppose to be for “mature skin,” but you know what? I don’t care because it works wonders! It’s long lasting and doesn’t budge. The hydrating quality gives your complexion a non-greasy, radiant, healthy glow. I like that it is a mousse texture so I don’t have to worry about it being runny or spilling. The foundation provides medium coverage and doesn’t settle into fine lines. It’s non-cakey and looks very natural. It does come with it’s own foundation brush, but I like to use my own. I would have to say this one of the best drugstore foundations. I cannot tell you the number of compliments I received every time I use this foundation. Everybody kept telling me I had such wonderful skin. Little did they know, it was the foundation.

Revlon Colorstay Mineral Mousse Makeup Review

revlon-colorstay-mineral-mousse-makeup 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.

My Thoughts:

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.

Maybelline Pure Makeup Review

Why You’ll Love It

This shine-free foundation with H2O is formulated with 50% water instead of pore-clogging oils that can cause breakouts.

My Thoughts:

I am not a fan of this foundation. It really doesn’t provide any coverage at all. It is sort of like a tinted moisturizer, except you need to apply moisturizer before you apply Maybelline Pure Makeup. Besides the lack of coverage, it also lacks staying power. By midday, the foundation had disappeared. For longer staying power, I would apply a finish powdering after apply the foundation. Even then, it still didn’t last. If you’re looking for sheer coverage this could be for you.

Revolutionary whipped formula provides an air-soft, perfect matte finish coverage, with a weightless feel.

  • Color pigments offer superior coverage
  • Blends effortlessly for a soft, natural-looking, even-toned result
  • Now in 16 shades

My Thoughts:

I did not like this foundation at all. You could totally tell I had makeup on. I prefer the natural look or at least fake the natural look with makeup. It went on streaky and was a difficult to blend. When the foundation finally set, it just looked chalky and cakey. I found that the foundation melted off my face! By midday, I actually noticed patches of foundation on my face. It was not a good buy.
