    Comments about Revlon Photo Ready Makeup SPF 20:

    I know a lot of people complain about the shimmer in this product, and it is shimmery, but I think it's subtle. However, I do reserve this for evening special occasions or sometimes a daytime event. It does even out skin tone and I get lots of compliments. It's a really good foundation for fair/ neutral skin tones. A lot of fair foundations look pink on me and this one is not pink at all.

      I'll be honest this is the first foundation I have ever used, but it will probably be the only! It blends in perfectly. Even when I take my makeup off my face feel smooth!

      Comments about Revlon Photo Ready Makeup SPF 20:

      I chose this product based on reviews and the cost. I was previously using more expensive brands including Lancome and Mac but wasn't that impressed by them. I like this product a lot and have been using it for almost a year now and have no plans on changing to a different product. The product provides full coverage which I personally don't think looks very natural. However, when I use it I mix it with a Neutragina primer; about 2 parts foundation and one part primer. This combination provides a more natural coverage although as is it can look a little flat and cakey, and settles int fine lines within a few hours. Determined not to resort back to more expensive brands; I bought the Urban Decay All-Nighter setting spray to address those issues. It worked! The setting spray makes my makeup stay in place for at least 12 hours for a just-applied look AND provides a very natural looking glow, getting rid of the flat cakey look. With the combination of the primer, the Revolon foundation, and the UD spray- my makeup has been transformed to a more natural and healthy look; I absolutely love the results. So, I do suggest this product, but also think this product should be used with a primer and effective setting spray for the best results.

          My skin takes a beating during the AZ summers. I step outside and I immediately feel the moisture being sucked from my skin. That's no exaggeration.
          My makeup can be looking good, then, I go outside, my skin dries up, and I get cake face.

          I changed up my moisturizer that has helped as well as my foundation. I was using an expensive name brand until I tried Revlon Photo Ready. Now, I'm having better luck with my foundation staying smooth looking all day.

          Using the proper foundation for your skin type really does make a difference in the appearance.

          I like this foundation but I don't love it. It blends really nice. But it doesn't give the coverage that I expect in a foundation. I also don't like the sparkles that it leaves. I feel like I have glitter all over my face. Will not repurchase again.

            This was the first liquid foundation I ever tried. The consistency of the product is great and it's easy to apply. It left my face feeling smooth and looking glowy. Lasting power also seemed pretty good for the price. Unfortunately after a couple days of use, I began to break out and my my skin was irritated. I have pretty sensitive skin though, so I definitely recommend trying this product and seeing if it works for you!

              Cannot stress this enough; Do not buy Revlon Photoready makeup. The reason why this gives you a dewey look is because it is filled with oil! This made me breakout so bad; I've been off it for 2 weeks now, and I am still suffering from the aftermath. If you have perfect skin, then by all means, go for it, but if you have dry/combination skin, acne prone skin(didn't realize I was until this product), stay away from this foundation!

                I really wanted to like this foundation but it made me breakout really bad. Do not use if you have sensitive/acne prone skin. It covers so great and it made me look so pretty for a week, until it started clogging my pores.
                Also, the consistency is VERY runny. It made my cheeks/nose/chin look great, but around my temples, it really latched onto every hair and made it look streaky.
