Review: Revlon PhotoReady Color Correcting Primer3:25:00 AM
A few weeks ago I received these two products from the Revlon's PhotoReady series. I finally got to try the PhotoReady Airbrush Mousse Makeup and the PhotoReady Color Correcting Primer.
The Revlon's PhotoReady collection has long been listed on my wish list ;)
As a girl who loves to take
shameless self pictures and not so photogenic face, I always think that a good makeup would help make you look even better in photos. So this PhotoReady collection from Revlon sounds just like what I needed ;)
The PhotoReady collection is a revolutionary product line with a light-diffusing formula that gives out a complete yet undetectable coverage. It seems to be the right answer in this High Definition era; the collection is a High Definition Makeup that contains photochromatic pigments that blends and reflects light to help erase every flaw so that your skin can look perfect.
So basically, a High Definition Makeup can make your skin not only looks great and flawless but also appears younger in any lighting conditions, whether indoors or outdoors. It's specially designed to perform under harsh lighting and high definition conditions. Doesn't it sounds great or what?? This is good news especially for all the cam whores out there, just like myself ;p
And today I'm gonna review the PhotoReady Color Correcting Primer first:
This Lightweight primer smoothes skin while evening out skin tone with color correcting pigments that neutralize redness and uneven color. The mild formula is able to neutralize the redness on the skin and brightens out dull skin, it can also fix uneven skin tone.
The color of this primer is a bit pink-ish and the texture is light and not sticky at all. It absorbed rather quickly by the skin and you can wear this alone or under foundation.
The direction on the back of the bottle says:
Apply to clean skin. Use alone or under makeup.
So far, I love using this before my makeup. On a daily basis, I would usually only use a moisturizer, followed by this primer, and then followed by face powder. And that's it!
And if I need to put some makeup on, I put on the Airbrush Mousse Foundation or the Revlon PhotoReady Two Way Foundation after this Color Correcting Primer. And the results have always been fantastic!
The bottle itself is made of glass with a simple and sleek design. It has a nozzle with a pump so it's much easier and more hygienic to use.
As I told you above, the primer has a light substance and it's pink-ish in color! I don't know if you can see the pink in the photo below. You can click on it to make the photo bigger.
Spread it on evenly:
It absorbs rather quickly!
And here's the Before and After photo:
As you can see above, the Primer really stands out to it's name. It really corrected the skin tone on my skin and made it look brighter and smoother! You can see from above photo that my left hand is more brighter than my right hand. And my left hand also appears more smooth and flawless while my right hand stays dull.
The primer also makes a smooth base for my foundation and I noticed that my face powder and makeup stayed longer on my skin whenever I use this primer. It also doesn't make me feel oily (I have combination to oily skin), so it's really great for everyday makeup base.
Here's another before and after photo:
You can see the difference, right?
Overall, I'm very satisfied with this Primer.
It has given me great results and really did it's job very well. It doesn't make my skin oily during the long hours of wearing it, in fact it made my skin looks flawless and brighter, and it made my skin tone more even. I have no complaints so far except for the rather peculiar smell, it smells a bit chemical-ish but it doesn't really bothers me that much. It also doesn't give me any breakouts or clogged my pores. So far, I love it and would recommend it to you who also have dull or uneven skin tone like mine ;)
Here's when I use it on my face:
There's almost never been a "failed face" photo ever since I used this PhotoReady collection ;p Most of my photos would turned out great, no dull face, no white streaks, no uneven skin tone, no more ugly makeup on facebook photos, LOL. - If you love taking photos then I truly encourage you to try Revlon's PhotoReady products ;)
You can get this Color Correcting Primer on Revlon's counters. I will update you the price once I obtained the information ;)
Stay tuned for the Airbrush Mousse Makeup review!
