Revlon Photo Ready Foundation Review- UPDATED

I really wanted to like this product. I really did. I'm already a big fan of the Revlon Colorstay Foundation, so I was psyched to try this out. So I was kind of disappointed when it didn't live up to the hype. I bought it in the shade Rich Ginger (my shade in the Colorstay formula), and it was way too light. I also noticed that it had a white cast, which made my face look chalky and ashen.

The formula was easy to blend with but I wouldn't recommend this product to women of color for the fact that there's not a lot of variety in the shades and it lacks warm tones. It also seems to contradict itself because I think it looks better in person than it does photographed.

I have photos with me wearing both formulas, excuse the hair and pjs in the 2nd photo, I was getting ready to go out lol.

this is another taken while I was out, my face doesn't have the creepy white cast here.

Pros: nice consistency, easy to blend, good coverage, didn't feel heavy, comes w/ a pump
Cons: has a white cast, comes in few shades, colors in shades not consistent with the Colorstay formula.
Overall Rating: 3/5
