Hello my lovely beauties,
Today I am going to be reviewing REVLON’S newest foundation on the block which is praised by all and sundry and is even being compared to the high lords such as NARS Sheer Glow Foundation and Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation.
Now all this hype quiet piqued me so I ordered mine at ULTA.com and prayed and prayed that it matches, its always a hit or miss with foundations when you buy them online.
So lets see what REVLON has to say about this foundation:
Makeup so refreshingly light, it melts right in, creating a fresh even look. So the only one that knows you are wearing makeup is you. Blends seamlessly, buildable coverage.
PRICE: Its priced at $9.99 FOR 30ML
PACKAGING: It comes in a standard glass bottle with a white cap to it and sadly no pump. Why? I mean what goes into adding a pump, increase the price if you wish but add a pump guys, it makes the job so much easier.( I hope they are reading this.)
EVERYTHING ELSE: When I first saw it through the container I thought crap! its too yellow. I got the wrong shade. With a heavy heart I proceeded and applied it took a photo and voila! was I surprised or what? The finish it gave on the skin was so flawless it wasnt quiet dewy, it was more satin finish. The shade I am using is 200 WARM BEIGE.The foundation also has a SPF OF 20 which is always good, you dont need to add one separately.
The coverage is sheer to medium,its definitely not full coverage,you can still see the skin through which I like.The foundation is not runny rather thick but the active ingredient listed is water hence although it is thick in consistency its not heavy feeling on the skin.
Now on a couple of downers for the product.
Firstly I already mentioned the pump is dearly missed. A pump would have been nice.
And secondly even after setting the foundation with a powder it wasnt completely transfer proof .
The staying power on the foundation is decent enough 5-6 hours without any retouches, but the weather is not that warm now, so for summers I cant say much now, but I am impressed with the foundation overall, especially the satin finish it leaves on the skin.
OVERALL I would say its a nice foundation for the price point and also the finish it provides on the skin, its great on dry skin, oily skin beauties will need to do touch ups on hot summer days or apply a matte primer underneath.
I am quiet loving it .I would definitely recommend it, if you are looking for a medium coverage foundation for use on a regular basis. I have used it in the picture below. This picture is taken in flash and I did not find any white cast on my face, so its performed well in that department too. So overall I like it.
UNTIL NEXT TIME…
