Hiya girls! Today I’m sharing with you all another awesome foundation I discovered this season. Read on to know more!
About Revlon PhotoReady Compact Make-up: Cream makeup instantly liquefies for complete coverage and superior blendability. Lightweight powder finish. Perfected airbrush skin in any light.
Price: Rs. 975
Shelf life: 18 months after opening
Packaging: The foundation comes in a sealed, rectangular case. The packaging is flip-types, with a small mirror and a rectangular latex sponge included in the pack. The actual product lies under a sieve-like film, or a liquefying screen, as they call it. The sponge needs to be pressed onto the screen to get some product on it. The product is creamy, so it doesn’t run about inside the pack. The pack is travel friendly. The mirror allows for touch-ups, and the sponge included in the pack is of very good quality.
-Active ingredient: Titanium dioxide 9.5%

My take on Revlon PhotoReady Compact Make-up (400 Caramel): The foundation is a cream based foundation, lying in a pan under a thin sieve like screen. You need to press the sponge onto the film to get some product onto the sponge, and then apply it to the face. The foundation has some very finely milled glitter particles in it, which are not perceptible to naked eyes, except when under sunlight or when clicked under flash. Because of these shimmer particles, the foundation imparts a subtle glow to the skin, but nothing over-the-top. The foundation sets to a powder finish in a few minutes after application, and in this season (winters), I have been out with this foundation on my face without a primer all day, without a need for touch-ups. It offers medium coverage, which can be built upon to give full coverage, without any cakiness. There’s no funny smell to this product, and it didn’t break me out. I generally skip the concealer with this foundation. It covers acne scars considerable, when applied with a light hand, and fully too, if need be. It does not, however, conceal under-eye dark circles much. The product blends into the skin effortlessly.

Shade 400-Caramel is suitable for dusky skin tones. It has yellow undertones to it. For my NC 44.5-45 complexion, it is a tad darker, but I balance it out with a lighter powder on top, sometimes.
Since it is a cream-based product, I’d highly recommend it to those with dry skin for all-round-the-year wear, and to those with oily skin for winters. The product is especially good for occasions where you will be photographed, since it has been made keeping in mind photography needs, and it photographs well.
Pros of Revlon PhotoReady Compact Make-up (400 Caramel):
· Smooth, pigmented, creamy product
· Had miniscule shimmer particles, which aren’t perceptible to naked eye, but impart a glow to the skin
· Medium to full coverage
· Stays on practically the whole day
· Easy to carry packaging, complete with a good quality sponge and a mirror
Cons of Revlon PhotoReady Compact Make-up (400 Caramel):
· None for me. The price may be a con for some.
Verdict: Do check out this foundation, whatever skin type you have! It offers good coverage and staying power, and gives an illusion of glowing skin.
