After trying the Revlon Colorstay foundation a while ago, I’ve kind of become a full on a Revlon lover. So it was to be expected that I’d soon turn to other products to try.
Cue the PhoteReady Make Up…
Revlon say – “photochromatic pigments bend and reflect light to help erase every flaw. Complete, yet undetectable coverage. Soft luminous finish.”
The testing behind this product is quite clever. It was put under harsh lights and high definition cameras to test it’s flawlessness, whether under indoor fluorescent lighting, or full outdoor sunshine.
It also contains an all important SPF of 20, so with all the testing it will be interesting to see how it holds up under flash photography.
This one comes with a pump, which of course makes application much easier and more hygienic. I use one pump of the make up to start with, and usually apply using a Nanshy flat top buffer brush.
My winter shade is Nude, which I find matches me perfectly. It’s a lovely medium but build able product, which covers redness and evens skin tone nicely.
It’s has a slight dewy finish, but really only on the high points of the face – the cheekbones, brow bones and forehead area. The product is set easily with a translucent face powder, and stays on for around 4 hours without having to touch up.
Something I have noticed though is there is a very slight shimmer to it, not enough to notice it from just looking in a normal mirror, however if you do use a magnifying mirror to apply make up then you make notice it. In my opinion it doesn’t affect the finish in anyway and is pretty undetectable unless of course you go looking for it.
Overall it’s a lovely product, one that I warmly welcome into my already over brimming face and base collection. You can find the Revlon PhotoReady make up in Boots and Superdrug for an RRP of £12.99.
