I purchased the Revlon Photoready Airbrush Foundation during the same visit to H.E.B. when I purchased the Revlon Color Stay Lip Butters. You can view those two posts here for part 1 and here for part 2.
My shade in this foundation is Caramel. I wasn’t certain, but took a chance that the colors were the same as Revlon Colorstay…and I was right. *whew* *wipes forehead*
My first observation about this foundation was the fact that the bottle felt really light. I was concerned a bit that it was not completely filled up.
My second observation was the dispenser. It looks similar to one you’d find on a can of moose. Here’s a closer picture below of what it looks like.
Here’s what the actual foundation looks like
A closer look. It’s like a whipped consistency. Ah ha! That explains why it felt so light.
So I know you’re wondering how it worked when I applied it to my face right? Well, when I initially applied it, I was disappointed because there wasn’t much coverage. After applying more, I realized that the foundation was buildable…but had a very dewy finish.
I’m totally not a fan of the dewy wet look for my face.
No matter how “cute” I tried to pose or smile, it wasn’t working
So I set it with my favorite MAC Prep and Prime Transparent Finishing Powder and I got happier results.
So my conclusion on this foundation is that it’s a good product and was a great value with my my H.E.B. Coupon!
(which was the only reason I decided to try it)
I can’t say it will be my “go to” foundation, just because I don’t regularly use liquids, especially those that need to be built up for coverage. I think it would be very good for people who have dry skin or if you just really wanted a natural lightweight formula. If you have oily skin, you WILL NEED TO MATTIFY. I probably won’t buy it again for myself, but would consider putting it in my professional kit…when it’s on sale again. Ha ha!
