Since so many of you on the forum were raving about Revlon’s new foundation, I had to go ASAP to the closest drugstore (when a MUG needs to try a new product, she instantly drops everything to go get it!) I’m a huge fan of Revlon’s Colorstay foundation, so wanted to compare the two. Here’s what I thought…
I really do love this foundation in that it has amazing coverage without feeling heavy on the skin. The shine in the Photo Ready is great if you want that youthful, healthy glow but… it does not photograph well! I usually set my foundation with powder, so the shine wasn’t a big deal for me, but I normally prefer a matte finish to the skin so I can choose where I want to “shine”. I did not like how my pores and fine lines stood out in photos, even though my skin looked good in real life. I do feel that this foundation was similar to Makeup Forever’s HD foundation without the expensive price tag- it has all the great qualities of the “high end” foundations that cost considerably more. I still plan on using my Colorstay Foundation as I take photos almost every day, but plan on mixing in a bit of the Photo Ready to get that smoother texture. Both foundations are amazing, but it depends on what you are looking for. Either way, I’m happy to say Revlon is staying ahead of the game with their foundations!
