Okay so if you haven’t noticed, I am a pressed powder kind of girl. I tend to get very oily in the T-Zone so I stay far away from liquid foundations for fear of an oil slick.The last time I used a liquid foundation was back in 2005. I tried the Cover Girl Clean foundation in Toasted Almond and I liked it a lot. Unfortunately it became impossible to find the shade so I went back to my trusty pressed powders.When I heard about the Revlon Photo Ready Foundation, I was immediately interested. After seeing all of the great reviews all over the place, my interest turned into a lemming. Last week while in Rite Aid I saw that they were having a BOGO free sale for Revlon Face Products, so I picked up the PhotoReady Foundation and the Colorstay Foundation in Cappuccino. I have been using the PhotoReady Foundation for a week straight and so far, I really like it!
- Indoors, outdoors and everywhere in between, get poreless, airbrushed skin in any light.
- Photochromatic pigments bend and reflect light to erase every flaw.
- Light-diffusing formula gives complete, yet virtually undetectable coverage.

I would have to say that this is pretty good coverage. I am left with a very natural finish that lasts all day and surprisingly does not leave me oily. I have not been touching up my makeup or using blotting sheets at all. So far I have not experienced any breakouts either. The Cappuccino shade blends in with my skin perfectly. For reference I am MAC NW45. The pump dispenses just the right amount of product and is very sanitary. It contains SPF 20 which is a big plus in my book, our skin needs as much protection from the sun as possible. Revlon Photo Ready foundations retails for $13.99 USD for 1 fl oz, but can frequently be found on BOGO. So far I am really enjoying this foundation and look forward to venturing out and trying other liquid foundations. Next up, Revlon Colorstay Foundation.
- MAC MSFN in Deep Dark
- Revlon Colorstay liquid eye pen in Blackest Black
- L’Oreal Beauty Tubes Mascara in Blackest Black
- MAC Blush Ombre in Ripe Peach
- Smith’s Rosebud Salve
- MAC lustre l/s in Fresh Salmon
The Revlon PhotoReady Foundation definitely makes me feel Photo Ready, and I think it photographs very well. I don’t know about erasing every flaw now but hey, it’s good enough for me. What do you think? Have you tried this foundation?
