Revlon Photoready....

Okay so, I recently decided to purchase this foundation, because as I mentioned in my first post I will be getting married soon and I will be doing my own makeup so I am trying to decide which foundation will be right the occasion. I watch alot of Youtube videos and after watching countless reviews I purchased one at my neighborhood Walgreens during their 40% off Revlon products sale.

Revlon's promise with this foundation, straight from their site,

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

So my first choice was 008 Golden Beige, and I was excited to get home and give it a test drive. The color was too light for me so 2 days later I went back and exchanged it for another color and after 10 minutes I decided to get 010 Caramel. I tried it as soon as I got home......

And I am in LOVEEE. I cant believe it took me so long to try this, and now I love it. The finish was exactly what I like, dewy, but not overly shiny. The sparkles, although noticeable at first, later disappeared after applying a bit of my Jane translucent powder. I also should mention I used Milk of Magnesia, blotted on lightly with a cotton pad, underneath my makeup. I still want to try a couple higher end brand foundations, starting with Mac's pro longwear since a friend reccommended it to me, but this is definitely my new found love for parties and other social events I may go to.

Me with the foundation on after 10 hours of partying....

Love the finish on my, not too matte but nice and dewy on my super oily skin

The color I choose the second time around, 010 caramel is my EXACT match which has never happened for me before with drugstore foundation.

Love the pump

Dont need alot of product to get coverage I want

Love the way I look in Pictures, even with the spf in it.

Lasted a good 10 hours, through my nephews 10th birthday party, sweating, dancing, organizing games for the kids, running back and forth.

Price is right! $8.49 a bottle for 1FL. Ounce

Hate that with drugstore foundation its hit and miss with guessing the right shade for you, wish they had samples but I found my shade so I will repurchase with no problem.

I think with this foundation you have to wear primer because of the sparkles, I think if you have oily skin and dont use a primer this will probably not work for you.

Final Verdict : I will repurchase this when It finishes. Now I understand the hype with this foundation in the makeup community. Good job Revlon!

Can't wait to try out more foundations!!


  1. I LOVE photoready! I think the coverage is nice, and it lasts a really long time on my face, and it does a great job at evening out my skin.

    Congrats on the marriage! :)

  2. Hey, thanx! Am so excited =]

    I really like the foundation, altho I am looking forward to also trying out the loreal true match... I just suck @ pinking out my right shade on the first try. The photoready is good tho, I'm in <3
