Several makeup brands have come up with liquid foundation that claim to have an airbrush finish. When I first heard about it, I was like, 'Meh. It's impossible!' One of the first few brands I saw was Sephora's take on it. Reviews online were so-so.
Upon realising Revlon came up with their own version, I thought twice whether to try this or not. But they are too smart to release it under their Photoready line! So, maybe it's worth a try. I loved their Photoready liquid foundation to bits!
Revlon Photoready Airbrush Mousse Makeup in 030 Nude
I was a bit surprised to find out that the liquid foundation has bubbles once you press the pump. It looks like the photo below. Here's the catch though, the pump is difficult to control and no matter how subtle you press it, a lot of product will still come out. But hey, one pump is sometimes enough for your whole face.
The liquid foundation dries faster than a normal liquid foundation so you better make sure that you are ready once you press the pump. I normally use one to two layers on my face.
Here's a photo of my bare face. Literally woke up like this. LOL!
Here are the photos of me wearing Revlon's Photoready Airbrush Mousse Makeup in Nude. One layer, guys. It was able to cover the red spot on my face but my blemishes weren't totally covered with just one layer. I usually apply concealer for my blemishes.
I wasn't able to take a macro shot of my face but this foundation is a bit streaky on its own. No matter what brush you use, you will get streaks. On the photos above, I even used my fingers to see if I won't get any streaks (lines) on my face but I still did. Either I wasn't fast enough or it's really like that. I don't know. What I do is I pat the streaks until they look blurred.
Does it give me an airbrush look? Heck no! Not even close. It gives me the look that I have foundation on my face but not an airbrushed one. Another thing that turned me off with this foundation is its smell. It stinks. It smells those chemicals you smell on the road. Sometimes it even smells like asphalt. Seriously, how would you even enjoy applying foundation that smells like that? It's not that strong but it's strong enough to dislike this product when I am using this.
Revlon Photoready Airbrush Mousse Makeup retails for PhP725 (for a 30ml product) but I was able to purchase this on sale for half the price! At least I don't feel that bad for spending that much on this foundation. I will not repurchase this product mainly because of its smell and not because it claims to give an airbrushed look (I was expecting it won't live up to its claim and I was right). I would have put this up on my blog sale, too, except that there's about 50% left on this product. I'm just guesstimating cos I hear that metallic ball bouncing sound loudly when I shake this sometimes.
Revlon is available at all leading department stores nationwide.
