MAKE-UP REVIEW: REVLON PhotoReady Compact Makeup

I am constantly been trying out different types of foundation that would definitely meet my needs. I've tried liquid, gel foundation, and now compact makeup foundation. So far, I loved it!


* It gives a perfected, poreless airbrushed skin to any light
* Liquefying screen turns cream to liquid, then dries to a soft powder finish
* Photochromatic pigments bend and reflect light to help erase every flaw
* It has SPF 20
* It's oil free, and fragrance free
* Complete, yet virtually undetectable coverage
* Gives a soft luminous finish

It comes with 6 different shades. I'm in the shade 050 Ivory. I'm happy I got the exact shade!

It comes with a mini sponge and a liquefying screen that turns the cream to liquid, then to a powder finish. It can be a bit messy with the screen, but the good thing is you can remove it! When I first applied it on my face, I instantly loved how it covered my blemishes and some redness around my nose. It's not a full coverage foundation, but it did cover my blemishes well without having to feel heavy on the face. I love how it comes so handy! You won't be hassled of bringing bottles of foundation for touch-ups.

I super like this product! It blends easily on my face, and diminishes visible pores on my cheeks. I also love how it looks perfect in photos! I'm so sorry I don't have photos of it on myself. I was too excited taking photos of the product, that I actually forgot to take a photo of myself with it.:(

*fragrance- free
*very handy
*covers well my blemishes
*very light on the face
*great with taking photos!
*With SPF 20
*I didn't get breakouts
*It did provide an airbrush finish!
*Available in 6 other shades

*A bit messy with the screen
*Pricey for a 10g cream foundation, costs P995

I love this one more than the PhotoReady Powder. I can use it even without powder actually! It did lived up to its promise of achieving an airbrushed finish, giving you flawless and glowing skin.

Will I Purchase again?
YES definitely!

I had this early June, so might as well do a review on this. I've been wanting to try this ever since I read it in a beauty magazine. Luckily, my Dad bought this for me since it's not available in the local stores from where I live.

Both have a sturdy black rectangular plastic casing, with a see-through lid so that the product can be seen. I don't like the fact that it's too big, that it actually covers a lot of space on my makeup kit.


My shade is in Fair/ Light 010. It claims to give a perfected airbrushed skin in any light. It covers flaws and eliminates flaws. I actually expected too much on this one. It's too sheer, it doesn't really cover much. I don't like how it makes my skin look dry even if it gives an instant glow. It feels cakey, though it does give a shimmering effect on the face which I love when taking photos.

It comes with a handy brush that I don't like. The bristles are hard, felt like it could scrape my skin! It wastes a lot of product, giving my face an uneven, dry finish. I had to throw it away and use a regular powder brush instead.

The product isn't really horrible, but it's not the best even.
It didn't suit my needs, maybe it works for some people, but not for me.


* Fragrance- free
* Oil- free
* gives an instant glow on the face
* it has SPF 14!
* Photographs really well


* It's too pricey for a drugstore make-up :(
* gives a dry, chalky feeling on my skin
* when you apply too much, you'll look like a fire- fly

Will I purchase it again?
I think not.
Although it does lives up to its claim of giving a soft glow to the skin, I wasn't really impressed with the powder.
