Hey guys! If you have been following my blog for a while or you’re here for the first time then welcome either way! I hope you are doing really well and have had a good few weeks. I’ve been distant because I’ve been on holiday/looking for a new job/starting up a new project. But I’ll do a full update post on all that when something has actually changed. For now, I’m going to be reviewing the Revlon Photoready foundation which has been a long time coming as I actually bought it in April!
Pretty much all of my purchases are inspired by a Youtuber and more often than not, it’s sophdoesnails. We have really similar skin types so I totally trust anything that she has to say about a product and she’s been raving about Revlon foundations for so long. Not this specific one but when I saw it in TK Maxx for £3 in my shade, I couldn’t resist trying it! Seriously if you guys have a TK Maxx (or a TJ Maxx, I think they’re called in some places) then go in there because there’s always such good beauty bargains. But shop with your own discretion because I’ve heard some people say that some of the more high end products are fakes. So, just be careful. I don’t know why this one is so cheap because normally, it’s £12.99 from Boots! I use the shade ‘golden beige’ and I’m super pale so I think that might be it? Because the shade range is weird/updated? Who knows!
I have mentioned this a few times before but I have extremely oily skin so when a foundation doesn’t expressly say it’s matte, I’m always worried. But it is oil-free! Which is amazing. The foundation claims to be medium to full coverage, give you a flawless airbrushed finish and a luminous finish. It is definitely full coverage so it may be a bit too intense for some people but I really liked it – especially as I’ve been having a bit of a break out recently. While I was on holiday, I used this constantly and it really helped to cover up my imperfections. I found that it worked being applied with a brush and with a beauty blender so it’s up to you! Although on Boots, it does say that you can apply it with your fingers, too, which is what I used to do with foundation all the time so that might be a good bet if you’re the same!
I really enjoy the finish. It’s high coverage, it’s glowy while not looking too dewy so my oily skin loves it. It genuinely does give you a flawless, airbrushed finish and I can’t recommend it enough. The only thing that I would say – and it’s not a criticism, I’m just confused! – is that it has a weird shimmer to it? You can’t see it so much on your face but when I touch my face, it comes away with almost a glitter on it? I literally can’t explain it properly so if anyone has had the same thing, let me know!
So, there you have it! Do you guys like this foundation? Let me know in the comments below! Also let me know if there are any products you would like me to review in the future as I love doing posts like this.
