If you guys remember a few months a go, right after I got back to my hometown, I was invited to the Revlon Photoready launch event. I was given a coupon to receive a free Revlon Photoready Airbrush Mousse foundation but I didn’t have the time to collect the product. If you guys follow my twitter and instagram, you’d know that I received free products from Revlon just a few weeks a go. I was quite busy with work and such I can only share my reviews of the products now.
Without further a do, let’s take a look at these babies! Thank you Revlon Indonesia for sending me these products.
So, I received the Revlon Photoready Color Correcting Primer and the Revlon Photoready Airbrush Mousse Makeup.
Here’s my bare face with absolutely nothing on my face except moisturizer. As you can see my skin is very flawed.
Here’s a pump of the Revlon Photoready Color Correcting Primer. The texture is very creamy and the color is a pale lilac. As you can see, it holds a shape when it comes out of the pump, it’s not runny which is quite unusual since most of the makeup face primers that I’ve used before (Except l’oreal base) are quite runny in consistency. This one is thick and cream.
I applied the primer on the left side of my face. This primer does what it says on the bottle, it corrects the color of the face. The lilac color brightens up the face. The primer definitely has that silicon feel like most primers do, but this one also feels quite moisturizing for some reason. Your skin feels a lot smoother and the pores seem smaller.
Now, onto the next one! Revlon Photoready Airbrush Mousse Makeup. 1 pump covers the whole face! I have quite difficulties controlling the pump, but I guess it’s ok. You have to shake it well before you pump the product out of the bottle. Once the product is out, you’ll notice the foundation somehow looks quite odd. It has air bubbles all over it, making it look somehow like a brain (hehehehe). Nevertheless, do not let the physical appearance fool you!
I applied the foundation on top of the primer on my left-side of the face. I applied this foundation using my fingers, as most of you probably would. The foundation is surprisingly light. It is obviously a liquid foundation, but it’s not as runny as other liquid foundation. It’s definitely not how I’d imagine a mousse foundation feels like. It’s definitely leaning towards a liquid foundation.
The coverage is medium. It has a dewy finish due to the little specks of photo-reflecting particles (aka fine glitters???). It might be OK for those with oily skin but live in a cold climate. Definitely not recommended for those with oily skin and live in a warm country, like mine. Definitely a foundation for those with dry skin. Combination skin might be able to get away with it as well. If you do want to purchase this foundation, I’d suggest applying it using a damped sponge, esp. for those with dry skin since if you apply it with a foundation brush it might get streaky. A stipling brush will work too and give you that “airbrush” finish.
