Revlon PhotoReady Foundation Review

Drugstore Challenge & Review of PhotoReady Foundation

Here's an excerpt from OnSugar blog I'll Take One in Every Color Please.

So here is my Drugstore Challenge look. I just picked up Revlon's PhotoReady in Natural Beige after avoiding it for so long. I finally caved when it was BOGOF at Rite Aid. I am not a huge fan of liquid foundations so this was a stretch for me. I usually use a tinted moisturizer or a mineral foundation.  On with the review... click for review and pictures

Packaging is awesome, love the sanitary pump. It's also a very controllable pump. You can get as much or as little product as you need unlike some pumps. The foundation itself seemed a little watery for a liquid foundation. I applied it with a stippling brush and it went on pretty effortlessly. I would recommend moisturizing before using this foundation. It will highlight dry areas. I don't find it too "glowy" or "shimmery" at all. I do find it ironic that this foundation is called PhotoReady being that it photographs terribly in my opinion. The flash will reflect off the "light reflecting particles" in the foundation. I would call this a medium coverage foundation that is definitely buildable. I actually have added moisturizer to it for a lighter coverage. The foundation does have an SPF of 20 in it which is a bonus. I think this foundation is totally worth a try. People seem to either love it or hate it, so wait until it goes on sale!

Hi Nymphette! Thanks for all your advice! I will be checking your site regularly to see if you have posted the eyebrow tutorial. No pressure though. Take your time. :D Your makeup is amazing!

@mavessie - I honestly don't have a fancy skin regimen at all. I use Boots cleanser, toner and moisturizer. It's actually a little embarrassing that I don't do anything fancy lol. The concealer that I do use if I'm using concealer that day is Amazing Cosmetics concealer in Medium Beige. LOVE IT! I also use it to conceal any redness around my nose and darkness under my eyes. I've actually reviewed Lumiere's foundation and it is definitely one of my favorite mineral foundations!!! Sheer miracle is a touch "drier" than Lumiere. I love the dewey, sheen that Lumiere gives. Nothing over the top... Hope that helps!

No problem! I will keep checking your site for your eyebrow tutorial. :) You're skin is also so flawless. I was wondering what your skin regimen was and if you use any concealers to hide any blemishes. Any recommendations? Anyway, I'm trying to get into mineral makeup. I am presently using lumiere since bare minerals made me break-out. The only thing is it doesn't really cover some of my blemishes. What do you think about lumiere mineral foundation? And how would you compare it to sheer miracle (I read your post about that). Thanks!

@veeveeone - I have pretty dry skin in the winter and I've noticed that PR does accentuate that if I don't moisturize properly. I've actually started to where PR mixed with moisturizer and it's perfect that way! @mavessie - Thank you love... I do have a youtube account but have not started taping tutorials yet. I have gotten a lot of requests. Maybe when I get over my nerves lol

Thank you for the review. I currently use Maybelline's dream liquid mouse foundation, and so far it's my favorite drug store foundation. I saw the commercial for this and was instantly curious to try it. Now I'll be watching those sale ads for sure!

I love this foundation. I was between two shades and went with the darker, which is why I think it photographed better.

I have a bottle of this stuff just sitting on my desk. I think I will return it because I had a bad experience with Revlon Colorstay. But it looks good on you.
