Revlon PhotoReady Airbrush Mousse Foundation Review

Today I have a review of the new Revlon PhotoReady Airbrush Mousse foundation that has recently came out. When I saw the display at CVS, something about this was calling out to me to give it a try. I had been using Maybelline FIT Me foundation ever since Summer of last year, so it was time to switch it up. 


Foundation is (of course) going to vary on each person how it works depending on someone's skin type, how much coverage one needs, etc. My skin is dry, even on my t-zone. No oily or combo skin at all. I also have pretty good skin, so I don't need a heavy coverage or trying to hide anything on my face like scarring or what not. Just something that will make my skin look more even in skin tone. So, this review is based on my skin type and my overall experience. 

I really liked this foundation right from the start. It's light weight and gives a decent amount of coverage. It even does make my skin have that "airbrushed look" to it like it is supposed to be doing. The only thing I really didn't like about it, is the shimmer! So much shimmer, which I guess is also in the original PhotoReady foundation (I have heard from other bloggers). I knew about the shimmer prior to buying, so it wasn't a shock. It's weird because I like it and I don't like it. It's mostly sunny here in Los Angeles, so if I wear this out when the sun is out I look like a shimmery face of shimmer. If I wear this when it's gloomy out (which is rare) or at night, I really like the way it looks. So this will not be my everyday foundation, which bums me out because I wanted it to be. I'm only going to use it if I go out at night, or a gloomy type day.

Have you tried this Revlon PhotoReady Mousse Foundation? Let me know what you think.

  1. How do you think combination skin would be with this?  I would like to try this soon.

  2. I think combo skin would work well if your looking for a light to medium coverage foundation. For oily skin, probably not. Oily skin would not like the dewiness and glow this gives. I hope this helped! Let me know if you decide to pick it up. :)

  5. What is with Revlon and the shimmer lately?  The last Revlon foundation I bought was the same way.  I will stick with my BB cream!

  6. What BB cream are you using? I have yet to try one, but I think I need to!

  7. This looks like a good foundation for Edward Cullen. I bet he'll love all those shimmers :) Btw, the bottle looks expensive and maybe you can use it as a highlighter instead?

    But I buy it on e-bay directly from South Korea, much cheaper that way!

  9. Shimmer is a good thing especially for dry skin. The shimmer particles are to small to be seen as glitter but rather as a light diffuser. It diffuses light from the face giving it a smoother look. Enjoy it and embrace it.

  10. i'd have to say that the reason it has those shimmers is because it's made to bend and reflect light to create a smooth effect IN pictures. that's why they advertised it as picture perfect. we've tried and tested it in photos and when you're using a DSLR camera, the pictures are so sharp you can almost see the tiniest pores, however when you use this foundation it creates an illusion of having an almost perfect poreless skin. it would look as though it has been photoshopped.
