I purchased the Revlon Photo Ready Foundation in Golden Beige by color comparison I’m an NC35 in MAC’s foundations.Golden Beige is a bit light but rather close to my natural skin tone. The next time I stop by the drug store I’ll have to find one shade darker and try to mix the colors in an attempt at a more honey beige color.I’m naturally tanned. Unless of course I’ve abused time in the sun therefore I turn into Poka Hountess-ish Anyways.
At first I was a bit skeptical, in the past, I was not impressed by the quality of most drug store brand makeups. Revlon’s PhotoReady foundation really surprised me.
First I must digress a bit. Having traveled and lived in and around South American countries, I’ve found that what’s considered to be a “Drug Store” brand cosmetic line in North America and United Kingdom is advertised and sold in most South American countries as a “Higher End” brand cosmetic line. So, with this in mind I approach cosmetic products with the idea that it’s all about the marketing and availability and one must really aim at trying any product first no matter what name brand it boasts.
So, tried Revlon’s PhotoReady, for one week. Upon first application I noticed right away that my skin tone looked Even and Radiant. Then through out the entire day (including the evening) the foundation stayed put. Note, it was a rather hot and humid day, so I was really impressed that I did not show too much shine around my T-Zone areas and that my foundation did not melt off or require touch ups.
Revlon PhotoReady foundation boasts a pore less and an airbrushed finish in any light. With photo-chromatic pigments that bend and reflect light to help disguise flaws. Its Oil free, Fragrance free and most importantly has SPF 20. Wow!
The container has a pump, which I favor most than a compact and a simple cap. The pump helps control the amount dispensed, I used only half a pump and the results were medium coverage. Double Wow!
Prices really very from country to country, but in North America, I paid around $14.00. I think this is a deal! Considering I’ve paid up to $60.00 to $100.00 USD for foundation.
