Comments about Revlon Age Defying DNA Advantage Makeup:

This is the worst foundation I have ever tried, I have a good BB cream that offers much better coverage than this does. It wears off, flakes off, does not get absorbed by your skin at all. I only purchased it after some magazine gave it a good review for anti-aging, but after trying it, I feel no anti-aging benefit would redeem the horrible coverage and flake off that happened to me while using this. I think Revlon probably gives that magazine a good deal of money in advertising and that is the only reason that magazine wrote anything positive about this terribly worthless foundation. Do not be fooled, read the consumer reviews online before you trust what the magazine editors get paid to recommend!

Comments about Revlon Age Defying DNA Advantage Makeup:

I have been using Revlon Age Defying foundation for years but just recently tried this newer brand marked DNA. At first I thought I liked my original one with Botafirm but by the time I finished my second bottle I was sold on it and I have received so many compliments on what beautiful skin I have. I do use a bronzer over it to cut down on the shine a tad and it looks so much better when I do!

    Comments about Revlon Age Defying DNA Advantage Makeup:

    I have tried pretty much every foundation made.....I like makeup just a little. For a drug store foundation I really like this. It is medium to full coverage, depending how you build it. I hated this when i first tried it. But I never make up my mind after one use. I like to try a product for at least a week. Sometimes I just have to figure out the best application for me. The lesson I learned, a little goes a long way. I use a beauty blender to apply and I don't squeeze as much water out than with most foundations.l (spraying some MAC fix+ to the sponge works well too. It also helps it last ALL day. (Spraying fix+ on your beauty blender is also a good tip when blending your concealer and/or highlighting concealer).

      Comments about Revlon Age Defying DNA Advantage Makeup:

      I am in my 40's with dry skin. I have tried everything from Cover Girl to Tarte, and usually use Revlon Colorstay because I prefer full coverage. I'm glad I tried this because it is my new favorite. I apply it with the Ulta oval blending sponge with no concealer or primer. This covers slight imperfections very well and still feels light. It really helps with flaking skin, too. I felt moisturized but not overly so. I almost didn't buy this because of the reviews, but this is clearly marketed towards older women with dry skin, not younger women with oily skin. You will not be happy with this product if you do not have dry skin. You will also need to use concealer or CC if you are trying to cover more than slight imperfections.

          Comments about Revlon Age Defying DNA Advantage Makeup:

          This is probably the worst foundation I've ever purchased. It's absurdly oily, cakes almost immediately and just doesn't blend at all. It looks disgusting, and being that it's on the pricier end of drugstore makeup, I would have thought it would be better. I'm mad I decided to spend the extra money this time.

          I liked the way this foundation feels after you apply it.It kinda feels,and looks like I already used the pressed face powder.The only bad thing is it made my eyes STING,and WATER VERY BADLY the four times I used it,and "what a bummer "Cause this foundation was kind of on the price side for me,and couldn't return it since I already threw the reciept away.Over all I would say that this is is a good product except for the eye problems it gave me.

              Comments about Revlon Age Defying DNA Advantage Makeup:

              I think this product would be good for even, aging skin, but not for my younger acne prone skin. I found that there was very little coverage and I had to use quite a bit of concealer. It also felt a little bit wet and greasy on my face and I had to use a lot of powder to set it.
