This morning, with annoyance, I discovered that my foundation was coming to an end. I do not like such moments, because you need to make a choice: stay on the same tool or choose something new. And here I wondered if I would like to buy Revlon PhotoReady again?
In search of an answer to this question, I decided to recall all the pros and cons of this foundation. At the same time, I hope, I will be someone useful.
This tone cream with the talking name PhotoReady differs in that it works on the camera, because contains reflective particles, which, when filmed, beautifully diffuse the light on the face. This creates the effect of perfect skin, as in glossy magazines.
Means gives a dense, but imperceptible covering and contains sun-protection factor SPF20. Volume 30 ml. Shelf life – 24 months after opening.
There are enough colors in the line, but I was especially pleasantly surprised by the presence of light ones (and in winter, I am also a pale grebe). I chose the 002 Vanilla shade. Probably, it was the light color that made me buy this particular tonal tool, because other brands were darker than I needed for the winter.
Loved the packaging with pomp. In my opinion, this format is the most convenient. The lower part of the bottle is glass, the lid and the dispenser are plastic. In general, it does not look bad on the dressing table.
The foundation itself is liquid, easily distributed, after feathering you can see many, many small spangles, reflective particles. There is no smell, except that it is barely perceptible.
By the way, the sparkles on the face are not noticeable, only if you get very close to the mirror. I tried to catch it in the photo, but it didn’t work, you just see the glow and that’s it.
PhotoReady’s masking abilities are not outstanding. Redness almost does not hide, if the problematic skin, I think, does not fit. Plus, the effect of shine will not please the owners of oily skin, because This will emphasize shine.
Resilience is decent, the working day withstands (although I’m still dusting from the morning).
Pros and cons
Pros: the foundation is light, it is not felt on the face, it is easily distributed, on the photo the skin looks smoother, resistant, there are light shades, comfortable packaging, sun protection factor.
Minuses: the coating is weak, the redness will not hide, oily skin will appear even more shiny, emphasizes flaking.
Price: not the lowest, but not very high, within 500 rubles. But if you have discount cards, it will cost around 350, I generally bought from a stock for 200 rubles.
Will I buy PhotoReady again?
I do not know … On the one hand, I liked to put this tonal in the morning, because It came out quickly due to the liquid texture and convenient dispenser.
On the other hand, summer is coming, heat, will I need these sparkles? Will he mat?
Most likely, I will look for some new tool, and to this, perhaps, I will return in the cold season.
And what tonal tool do you use? What is your favorite?
