Revlon Photoready Airbrush Mousse Makeup

16 comments
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.


Follow me! No? Yes? Yey!

  3. I've also seen other reviews and they have the same complaint on the smell too! If something that I put on my face smells more like chemical, nakakatakot (O_o) And look, there's Mr. Tiu on the background! (^-^)

  5. Awww. Napakaoff naman talaga if it has a bad smell. That's bothering:( buti na lang sale mo nabili but still sayang pa rin lalo na when you expect good on a product tapos end up not liking it.

  8. Aaw. Sayang naman. Buti nalang discounted nun nabili mo. Ako rin may nabili nun nag sale ang Revlon nung May. I bought the Revlon New Complexion 2 Way Foundation that claims to be whitening and long-wearing. I can't say if it was effective in whitening but it's definitely not long-wearing. The regular price is 800 but I bought it for 400 pesos. I should have bought L'Oreal Mat Magique which was sold for 400 pesos too at that time or Maybelline Superfresh. Buti nalang dun sa Colorburst Balm Stain na nabili ko hindi ako na disappoint.

  10. When I was in college I used revlon photo ready as in everyday. It was great and has a good covering effect, the only problem is that It's a bit painful in eye area. I am now using bb cream but whenever I need good quality photos I used revlon photo ready foundation. :) thanks for lovely review ms.gem

  13. I don't really use foundation because I prefer to buy make up that I can use everyday and I use BB cream. I use Missha BB cream and Etude House's. I also use missha's recent BB cushion and it is good! Revlon's Photo ready foundation added on my to buy list :) :)
