Revlon Photoready Airbrush Mousse Makeup Foundation Review & Swatches

I have a huge crush on foundations not only because I have blemishes and acne scars but it makes me feel and look good. I really wanted to try Revlon Photoready range and was impressed by Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer and Revlon Photoready BB Cream. Today I am going to review Revlon Photoready Airbrush Mousse Makeup Foundation. I got the shade Medium Beige for myself.

Revlon says-
PhotoReady Airbrush™ Mousse Makeup provides a flawless finish. The formula’s photochromatic pigments bend and reflect light to minimize flaws for a perfectly airbrushed looking skin in any light – indoors, outdoors, or under the flash of a camera.

MBT says-
Revlon Photoready Airbrush Mousse Makeup Foundation comes in a rather impractical packaging. It comes in sturdy aerosol can with a see through black plastic cap. The pump itself is too irritating. You cannot control the amount of foundation and it pumps shoots out hell lot of product. It will continue to dribble for a while after pressing the foundation. I need to wipe it clean to avoid accumulation of the foundation at the nozzle and cap. The nozzle does lead to wastage of product. The lid is quite tight and the bottle can be easily carried around in a makeup bag. The shade name and number are written at the front of the can.

The texture of the mousse foundation is quite unique. It comes out as a thin mousse with lots of bubbles or foam. The bubbles settle down to a light, soft and powder-y liquid. Before applying foundation, always make sure to apply moisturizer on your skin to create a perfect base. I love applying it with my Real Techniques Stippling brush as with a paddle brush I feel it gives streaky application. It blends into the skin quickly and feel extremely light. If you apply it with your fingers then it might require lots of buffing and blending and you need to be quick too. It offers sheer to medium pigmentation so if you have major acne or blemishes then you might need to use a concealer. It settles into a soft, smooth airbrushed finish. After using it for more than two months I feel it looks smooth, natural and airbrushed with a primer underneath. It hides minor flaws and redness. The foundation gives a lovely glowy finish to my skin due to the presence of very fine shimmers in it. Not that it looked bad or OTT but the shimmers do tend to shine when you are out in the sun. It does photograph well and does not look shiny or glittery. Anyways the shimmers are hardly noticeable and are visible when I closely look in the mirror. 

The mousse foundation stays put on my oily skin for a good 8-9 hours with just setting up once or twice with a matte powder. It does not oxidize and feels light on the skin. It does not melt or transfer easily. Medium Beige is perfect match to my skin tone and makes me look natural and flawless. I have not faced any adverse effects whilst using it.

Feels extremely light.
Sheer to medium coverage.

CONS:
Impractical packaging. It dispenses lot of product.

If you have dry skin then using primer is a must.
A bit pricey!

Overall Thoughts:
Overall I am not very happy with Revlon Photoready Airbrush Mousse Makeup Foundation for the price. It makes skin smooth, soft and gives an airbrushed look to it but it needs a lot of blending so I make sure to use stippling brush. It provides sheer to medium pigmentation and gives a natural look to my skin. It stays for the longest time on my oily which I really liked. I wish there were no shimmers in it though they are very fine and are visible when you look closely. Personally I don’t like shimmers on my entire face. The packaging is annoying too! I would recommend it to you if you like natural yet dewy or luminous finish!

Rating: 3.5/5
