Revlon Photoready Foundation ~ Review, pictures and swatches

Revlon is my favorite drug store makeup brand , well most of you must be knowing this, but this is the first time I am slightly disappointed, like how I am disappointed with the season 7 of HIMYM , love it but still made me wee bit sad :\

I bought this foundation a few weeks back and have been using it on and off since then ..

This is what I have to say about this.

You see something in person and then you see the same thing in a picture,,most of the times we get attracted to things which we get to see in person more than when we see it in a picture,, BUT !! with me its drastically opposite this time..

When I wear this foundation and see myself in mirror I find it not worthy of the 850 bucks I paid for it,, its kinda patchy looking and is hard to blend with fingers. But when you see yourself in a picture of yours with this foundation on your face you are going to love it..
I guess that is why it is called a Photoready foundation.

The shade I got is 003 Shell Coquillage and it matches my skin tone pretty well. The only thing is like,, it needs a good blending.

There is some sheen in this foundation which looks very very pretty even in day light. Its not super shimmery , it just makes my skin glow beautifully.

It is not for dry skin girls , it will make their skin look patchy, I have dry cheeks these days and even after applying a good moisturizer on to it and then wearing this foundation the dry patches were quite prominent and you never expect this from such a raved foundation.

The consistency of this foundation is slightly runny and I guess it will work best with a stippling brush.
The packaging of this product is very good, I like the pump it has, one pump is enough for your face.
It also has SPF 20 and that is borderline good for flash photography.



I like how it is not a full coverage foundation,,I feel plasticky with full coverage foundations.

Overall this is a foundation which will make your skin look perfect , all dewy and glowing in pictures,, it might make your skin look blotchy in person,,I guess its all due  to its consistency,,,

The things good ~

1. Medium coverage foundation,,yes its a good thing for me.

2. I like how it makes my skin look dewy and not sparkly!!

3. It photographs beautifully

4. Has SPF 20

5. The bottle is very handy and travel friendly

6. A pump is enough for one time application


The Things not so good ~

1. Looks blotchy when you see yourself in mirror

2. Not suitable for dry skin girls

3. Just 3 shades ~ :\

4. Hard to blend,,you need a good brush to blend it, say a stippling brush.


Price : 850 INR

Quantity : 30 ml or 1 FL. Oz.


Recommendation : Yes if you are loved by paparazzi  ;) , no If you think It can be you daily foundation. Dry skin people may find it a bit problematic.

Thanks

Namita
