    Comments about Revlon Photo Ready Perfecting Primer:

    Here are my specs: Half Caucasian and half Korean; my skin can't decide if it wants to be oily, dry, or normal; and my skin tone is medium with a bit of yellow. I work in front of a computer all day, right next to the front door of the building, so although I'm not getting sunshine I'm getting a constant draft from the people who walk in and out.

    I hate to give this product two stars, as Revlon is one of the two drug store brands that actually works for me, but it did absolutely nothing for the makeup. For a few weeks I used it with Revlon Photoready foundation (liquid to powder) and the foundation not only didn't stay on for long, but my skin would get very oily. I tried it with another foundation (I forgot which one), and while my skin didn't get oily, the foundation wore off as though I wasn't using a primer.

    This primer is intended for photographs, but I haven't had my picture taken while wearing it, so I added one star because I don't know how useful it is concerning portrait photography.
    I would not recommend this product for daily use.

      Best Uses

      • Daily Use
      • Normal Skin
      • Sensitive Skin

      Comments about Revlon Photo Ready Perfecting Primer:

      I have fair skin, sensitive, and tends to be dry outside of my T-zone. I wear this product alone, with just a bit of blush and/or bronzer and I love the way it mattes my skin.

      It looks like I have airbrushed foundation on! Totally evens out tone and color. I also don't like wearing any kind of full-coverage makeup so this is the perfect inbetween.

      BUT don't wear too much, more than 1 pumps worth and it gets flaky and paper-y. I think it also helps to put on a good moisturizer first.

          Comments about Revlon Photo Ready Perfecting Primer:

          I use this over my moisturizer/sunscreen to give a smooth matte appearance before applying my foundation. Foundation goes on and looks better. But the packaging/pump is terrible. About 1/2 to 2/3 through the pump does not work well at all. It takes a lot of shaking and rolling to get the pump to dispense the product and then it comes out in bits and spurts. I don't like waste and it takes a long time to get it to dispense or you have to break the top off. I hope they fix this.

              This product provides long lasting coverage for your next step(make up.) Its light weight and blends well.
              There's higher priced for sure, but if you want a reasonable price and a good product give this a try.

                    Comments about Revlon Photo Ready Perfecting Primer:

                    If you are only planning on using this product to reduce shine and matte the skin, it will work just fine. Once you start trying to put anything on top of it, however, you will begin to have issues. I have owned 5 different primers so far (Smashbox and pores no more are my favorites) and this one was the worst once I tried to put makeup on. It will prevent the makeup from blending in to the skin, and it is supposed to help makeup blend in. It did very little to extend staying power. I can only really use it if I don't actually want to use makeup and I just want my skin to be more matte.
