I suppose you could call me a bit of a foundation fanatic. I went through a period where I actually never wore foundation, all I used was tinted moisturiser because I had got it into my head that foundation wouldn’t let my skin breath and would feel too heavy on my face…oh how days have changed. I think foundation is one of those beauty items I don’t think I could live without now! Even although I love my current foundation (Estee Lauder), I am always on the lookout for any that can compete with my current choice and I can’t come out of boots without at least a half arm of swatches trying out all the latest ones that take my fancy.
For a while now, I have been dying to try MUFE HD Foundation purely for the fact that it is supposed to give you flawless, airbrushed looking skin that looks great when taking photos (and hey if it’s good enough for Kim Kardashian) but sadly there isn’t anywhere in Glasgow that stocks it. So I took it upon myself to trawl the internet one night and after hours of trawling, and lots of umming and ahhing, I managed to find a stockist based in London. I then sat for another good couple of hours trying to find my shade and after eventually managing to work out my colour, discovered that, guess what…they didn’t have any left in my shade, typical! Ah well it wasn’t meant to be, but I soon came across Revlon Photoready foundation and I am so glad that I did.
Revlon Photoready foundation is said to give you “perfected airbrushed skin in any light” and after testing this out I am not disappointed. The foundation itself is a lot thinner than what I am used to but it still allows for a medium to full coverage by layering it up and is really easy to apply. It has photochromatic pigments (looks like the tiniest bits of glitter) that are said to bend and reflect light to erase every flaw and give a “complete, yet undetectable coverage”. I must admit, when I first swatched this it made me slightly nervous that I could see the glitter pigments in it but after applying it and putting a light dusting of bronzer on top, the glitter doesn’t come through at all, it’s like magic!
It is also amazing at minimising the look of pores and gives a soft, dewy finish. It doesn’t oxidise or leave my skin feeling oily and has good staying power I would say. Another thing that stood out to me is the fact that this foundation has an SPF20, but the photos I took wearing it were lovely and didn’t give a flashback, so no little ghosty faces in any of the photos from my night out last weekend!
All in all, I give this foundation a big thumbs up and I can see this being one of my new favourite high street foundations.
Have you tried this foundation? What is your favourite foundation for giving a flawless ‘photo ready’ face? 🙂
