Review - Revlon PhotoReady Airbrush Effect Foundation

Just look at that name. Doesn't that just scream "BUUUUY MEEEE!". Who doesn't want to be photoready? Who doesn't want to have an airbrushed effect? Uh I'm not raising my hand.

I've been in the market for a new foundation for a while as Rimmel's Match Perfection just isn't doing it for me and my oily skin at the moment. Reading reviews before purchasing something, espcially foundation, is something I swear by and after hours of searching for a foundation that fit my criteria (oil-free/medium to heavy coverage/affordable/something that will make me look fabulous) I came across this.

Revlon is a brand that I've never really had an opinion on so part of this purchase was a leap of faith - we've all got to have these kind of moments in our lives, this one was pretty exceptional don't you think? This particular foundation has been out for a while but they've recently "improved" the formula and so there was another reason for me to give it a try.

I gave it a go last Friday when I took a day trip to London, my day started at a painful 5 o'clock and I arrived home at half 8 that evening and to my amazement I still had a full face of make up on. This foundation hadn't budge, not one bit. Of course there were one or two powder touch ups as the day progressed but the make up I had put on in the early hours of Friday morning had lasted all day.

The foundation really does live up to it's name, although I didn't feel like Mirander Kerr or Kendall Jenner (to name but a few examples), this PhotoReady Airbrush Effect foundation really does give your face that photoshopped complexion that everyone's always dreamed of! The only downside to this product is the application, once on the skin, the liquid is harder to buff in in comparison to other foundations I have tried. But a little extra elbow grease to achieve this flawless look is something I don't mind doing.

The Revlon PhotoReady Airbrush Effect Foundation retails for £12.99 but is currently £3.00 off in Boots (making it £9.99 if you aren't the best at Maths), so pick it up and give it a try!

What's your favourite foundation?
