My obsession for foundation is growing and I am so thrilled at the amazing choice we have these days across budget and luxury brand. It’s a budget one today. Here’s my take on the Revlon PhotoReady Airbrush Effect Foundation.
I have never properly tried the original Photoready makeup so unfortunately I can’t do a comparison, but I shall do my best to give you the lowdown on this newbie.

Revlon PhotoReady Airbrush Effect Foundation Before & After Photos
I really like the texture of this foundation. It is creamy and smooth, and although I have been going great guns with the serum foundations that are really liquidy, this really the type of consistency I prefer. It also needs minimal powdering.
I like the coverage this gives and it covers imperfections really swiftly and I needed hardly any concealer at all. On the down side, in some lights it can look a little glittery, but that doesn’t really bother me too much. I think that people found that with the original formula too which I know is one you either love or hate. I don’t think this would work too well on dry skins, as I find it pretty mattifying and it sets fast. I like this on top of a good helping of moisturiser and I really buffed it into my skin with the new Real Techniques Sculpting Brush.
I haven’t yet managed to test it for 8 hours as I applied this fairly late in the day, so I will wear it again and update if I can.
