I recently purchased Revlon’s Photoready Airbrush foundation in 030 Nude. Before I tell you what I think of it, let me say that Revlon is one of my favorite cosmetic brands, sometimes even over high end brands.
That being said, not only am I disappointed in this foundation, I am horrified as well!
The first time I tried to use it, I had used a new moisturizer and primer at the beginning of my routine. I was waiting for my primer to dry, anxiously waiting to try this intriguing new product. I loved the concept of it and couldn’t wait for my face to be magically transformed into a perfect canvas.
When my primer was ready, I took the lid off the foundation. The pump thing is odd and I noted that it was difficult to press. It was so difficult that, when I finally managed to press hard enough, it was to hard and a whole bunch of product shot out onto the back of my hand.
I dont know how to describe the consistency other than very foamy… as soon as it comes out of the can it expands like a very watery, bubbly mousse. It then quickly started to dissipate, the air coming out of the product I guess. This left a very thin liquid. Ok, I can deal with that. I soon discovered that a little goes a long way.
After finishing my makeup routine, I realized I had been noticing a really disgusting smell. I can not describe the smell other than it was gross, almost like spoiled milk mixed with a dirty diaper????
I was in a rush to get Teenage Boys to practice, so we rushed out the door. The whole drive there and back I was tortured with the stench of my FACE! Trying to be logical, I thought maybe the new moisturizer, primer, and foundation might have had some weird chemical reaction with each other.
I promptly removed all makeup and then washed my face. Didn’t think about it for the rest of the day.
Next day: I decided to put the same foundation on, but this time I would put it directly onto my freshly washed face.
When I pulled the cap off the can, this is what I saw:
Gross, huh. I went ahead and pumped some out, dabbing it onto my forehead. Guess what. The stench was this foundation, even stronger than before.
This was by far the WORST foundation experience I have ever had. Revlon… why??? I’m so sad to have to return this product after being so excited about it. 😦
Have any of you tried the Photoready Airbrush foundation? If so, did you have the same problem? Did I just get a bad batch?
