Hey beauties,


Right off the bat, I love reading and watching beauty bloggers. So I constantly come across their lists of quality dupes, where you can find the Revlon foundation also.

Most of the bloggers praised it highly, saying that it’s even better than all high-end foundations. How could I miss it then? Smile

The first thing I found out at the shop is that it was available in two versions: normal/dry and combination/oily skin.

I was confused, because nobody mentioned in their reviews which one was under consideration.

Actually, it’s really easy to get the wrong shade, if you don't read the writing. I’ve picked up the right one for normal/dry skin.

The color range is small, nevertheless you can pick up a suitable shade for you. I appreciate that they both look very natural. I guess, it’s the first thing girls like about this foundation, as mass market products are usually not wearable, they are either orange-y or pink.

I’ve chosen shade 150.

For some people the country of origin is also important, but for me it's all about quality.

The bottle contains 30 ml of the product.

The design is good enough. It comes in a bottle made of quality glass. There are also a convenient pump and all the necessary writing, that doesn’t wear off or fade.

A pump is always the most comfortable way to get foundation from glass bottles.

The texture is quite liquid. You can see that the drop of it flows a bit in the photo below.

Both pictures here show the yellow undertone. It’s a perfect shade for those who can’t stand pink tint in foundations.

Now I’ve reached the main point. Actually, I want to try the other version for combination/oily skin. One day I’ll buy it, because I have dry skin only for the last 6 months due to the pregnancy and I wonder if there’s much difference in application and wear. There should be some, otherwise what’s the point to divide it into 2 types.

Well, what am I driving at? I think that all the bloggers meant the second version in their reviews!

I’m not so much into this foundation and I can’t compare it with top-range products. It works well, but there’s nothing special about it.

It’s hard to apply the product evenly, especially with fingers. You can do it perfectly only with a sponge. The product spreads out well and doesn’t feel like a mask on my face. However, it takes great pains applying the foundation when you want to get a perfect coverage.

Let’s look at the result. It’s always better to look at than read about it.

  1. Spreads out well
  2. Evens out my skin tone
  3. Conceals imperfections
  4. Doesn’t feel like mask and looks natural
  5. Doesn’t cover up my moles and reddened areas. Medium coverage

In addition, It doesn’t clog my pores or cause any breakouts.

All in all, I’d say that the product is decent and I give it 4 stars. However, I wouldn’t compare it with high-end foundations.


Thanks for your attention Smile
