My skin is predominately oily so I’ve always had to buy higher end foundations to ensure they last on my skin, even with a primer & setting spray. Last year, I discovered the Revlon Colorstay Foundation in the oily skin formula, which has been out for ages but I’d never tried it. I loved it & would recommend it for those who want a medium coverage that you can build to a fuller matte finish.
However this year I have discovered another gem on the high street & this one is great for those of you who, like me prefer a more natural foundation finish; Revlon PhotoReady Candid Foundation.
Revlon sent one over to me along with the concealer & setting powder & in all honesty, I wasn’t expecting much in terms of longevity but I was WRONG! Started using them before my trip to Mexico in May, loved their staying power that much, I trusted them enough that I took them away to the heat with me!
I’ve now finished the Revlon Candid Foundation completely & will definitely be buying another when I run out of my others. The finish is incredibly natural, it’s like a second skin that gives good coverage & can be built heavier. It lasts so well on my skin & the concealer & powder compliment it beautifully.
The Revlon PhotoReady Concealer doesn’t crease or settle on my skin & a little goes a LONG way. It blends effortlessly with a damp Beauty Blender and looks lush, definitely one for those who love a real skin look rather than a very heavy finish. I love that I can still see my natural skin through the product but it looks even & perfected & feels really natural on the skin, it’s lightweight as though I’m not wearing anything.
The Revlon PhotoReady Setting Powder is a loose setting powder which is fab for finishing off & makeup look & helping it to last. It doesn’t look chalky or powdery white on the skin & like with the foundation & concealer, it’s packed with antioxidant, anti-pollutant & anti-blue light ingredients. While it isn’t the best setting powder I’ve used, it is good & definitely worth picking up with the foundation & concealer.
