AH.. I have started the 3rd week of school off bad :( I didn't make it to my art class today... and we had a quiz...... that doesn't get dropped! I slept early, I studied, and then my alarm didn't go off right this morning :( I'm just so frustrated! BLAH, whatever! I'll go do all the extra credit and try to ace it that way x(
So today's post is dedicated to the Revlon PhotoReady Foundation. I bought this on sale at CVS (buy one get one free) and lucky I did! I am in between shades. The shades I have are:
- 008 Golden Beige
- 009 Rich Ginger
I know this has product been around the blogosphere (and I've seen it everywhere I go now so it's 100% available) and I've gotten it quite a while ago and now I feel like I can do an official review :)
Revlon PhotoReady Foundation
What is it:
A foundation that looks great no matter the setting or the lighting!
What it does:
This lightweight, non-greasy foundation by Revlon goes on smooth to hide your imperfections. It has light coverage, but is builable for a more full coverage.
What else you need to know:
Contains sunscreen (SPF20).
Size: 1 fl oz.
Where to buy: Drugstores, Ulta, Supercenters, anywhere they sell Revlon!
Repurchase? Yes, if I ever finish it -_-
DROP come out, and that's really hard to do with my other foundations! :D (well, I don't even think it's possible with the other foundies lol)
I must say that there's shimmer in this foundation! I don't recommend it if you have visible pimples/bumps/cystic acne! I think it will definitely highlight it by catching the light, but I mean it's not too noticeable, but when I was in the stark sunlight, I was looking at my face and I kinda felt like Edward Cullen! LOL, but please note that I was kinda all up in my face too. But from afar you can see little shimmers.
I also included some pictures of me test driving it :D Still doesn't look like an exact color match, BUT my neck is indeed darker than my face AND my chest area.. weird?!?! Ehh, I think not! I have SPF from my makeup/moisturizer and then I usually wear t-shirts so then my neck is the only one getting the tan on :P
The above pictures were taken around 2pm before I was about to go to work.. I guess it was that day I was horsin` around with my camera and got tons of stupid stuff done I never posted LOL :D
- Relatively inexpensive for a foundation
- Did not cause any breakouts for me
- Medium coverage (the way I apply it)
- Buildable coverage in areas you need it. For example, my cheeks I can layer another layer without it looking cakey or gross
- Lasts me a whole work day
- Dewy finish, not too matte, but not too much sheen
- Washes off easily, unlike their colorstay foundation!
- No funky scent like their colorstay either ^_^
- Pump doesn't get clogged like my MAC studio fix fluid :T
- Has micro-shimmers in it that may accentuate bumps
- SPF may give you a white cast
- Minimal shade selection. For example, I am MAC NC 40 and I wear the darkest two shades!
- Accentuates dry spots so make sure you exfoliate your face gals!
Hope you girls enjoyed my review but I know I am on a roll with this and hopefully you girls don't mind me posting these detailed reviews for the next week or so :X I gotta get these posts out of the way before I forget about them ^_^... you have to know what I mean! LOL
I am having a giveaway coming up.. I know the end date but I don't know when I will start it?! I am almost up to 300 followers so maybe another week or two?!?! LOL but first I got to round up the prizes! It's not gonna be huge, because if it's a huge prize I would want to throw a contest but I wanna save that for the summer since everyone won't be so wound up with school and hopefully has time for it :( ahh.. whatever. Just keep on following to know about the giveaway! :D
NEXT WEEK, I am going to concentrate on my classes more and improve my crappy grades @_@.. Tomorrow night I am planning to read my books.. and then continue reading the rest of the weekend. KILL ME NOW! LOL, but I really want to get an A this semester so I am gonna try so hard.. but I will probably end up with a B because my slacker side of me gets the best of me 85% of the time!
Have a good night everyone! I really appreciate your comments & everything, but I usually don't have time to comment back until I get a day "off" from worrying about grades. GOSH MY HAIR IS GOING GRAY THOUGH!
ahhh.. Goodnight all!
