Revlon Photoready Translucent Powder and Foundation Review

Hey guys, I've been doing a lot of hauling lately, buying and trying a lot of drugstore products. This past week Rite Aid had a 40% off sale on Revlon products and so I bought quite a lot of stuff. The plus side to this hauling was that for every $10 I spend on Revlon Products I would receive free $4 coupon on anything in the store. This was great because it made me buy more Revlon stuff and everything super cheap. I usually buy drugstore products when they are on sale that week. So this was awesome!

Revlon PhotoReady Powder, 001 Translucent

This was my first time trying a translucent powder to set my foundation. I usually use my MAC studio-fix powder in NC40 to set my MAC foundation. I really like this powder. I do notice a slight scent to it but it's bearable. I think this a great alternative to a more expensive or a cheaper translucent powder.

:/ )

In the winter I'm an NC37 in MAC liquid foundation but recently I have gotten quite a tan and am about a NC40-42. So I definitely had to buy a new foundation. Since I have been running low on budget, I really wanted to try this foundation. And I must say that I am very pleased and quite impressed because I feel as if this color suits me better than my liquid MAC foundation.

So as for choosing the right shade, I had a really good idea of what color would be my perfect for me from other bloggers and youtubers. Aubrey aka Fafinettex3 is the same exact skintone as I am so I chose based on her opinion. And I am very happy with what I got. I chose the color 008 Golden Beige.

What I really like about this foundation is that it's a bit sheer and has micro glitters that add shimmer. These shimmers are there to reflect light in photographs. When I wear this foundation it makes my skin look as if it has a nice glowy finish and the color matches my skin perfectly. However, when I take pictures, it made my face appear a bit lighter. To tone down the lightness, I contoured my face and wore some blush. And I must say I am very please with this. I also love he fact that it has a pump.

So, If you are an NC37-42 I recommend getting the Revlon Photoready in 008 Golden Beige. The translucent powder also works great at setting this product also. I hope this was helpful. Thanks for reading.

  2. It looks REALLY pretty on you. I'm an NC45 in MAC & next time Walgreens or CVS has a sell, I'm definitely going to try it out. Gives you a nice "heathly glow" look.

  3. Lovely review! i am so into HD foundations rightnow!I need to try the Photoready powder now! xoxo
