Review: Revlon PhotoReady Airbrush foundation

Hey guys, so recently i tried Revlon's PhotoReady Airbrush foundation and thought it needed its own separate review. You may be thinking 'What is it that amazing?'... but i wouldn't be jumping to that conclusion just yet. I was skeptical at first about this product and whether i should buy it, but in the end the ad sucked me in. Who doesn't want perfectly airbrushed skin? The packaging of the product is neat and straight to the point which i love. It generally just looks like other Revlon products to me, however, the product is dispensed through a kind of pump-like system. The product is of a mousse texture which you press down with your fingers or brush into liquid form.The issue with the pump nosel is that it is easy to dispense too much product if you press it down too hard, not to mention how messy it can get if you don't wipe over the nosel after use.

The foundation itself is medium coverage and the coverage can be easily built up by using more foundation. Once i had applied it on the skin however the consistency was very oily and shiny. I absolutely hated it. The coverage did nothing for my freckle-bound skin as the oil highlighted my imperfections more than it concealed them. There is no way you could wear this foundation without a setting powder as it would be too oily. From my experience, i wouldn't recommend this product to anyone with oily skin. In most stores in Australia the product sells for atleast $33, so it is quite expensive  for a drugstore foundation. If anyone is interested in this product i would recommend going to your local cosmetics/ beauty counter and trying it out before you buy it.

I would love to hear any other thoughts on this product and whether it worked for other people, so feel free to comment below.

Until next time, Jess :) xo
