~[Review & Swatches]:Revlon Photoready Foundation in Medium Beige 006~

Summers are almost around the corner.As we update our wardrobe so must we update our cosmetics.The main problem that we face during summers is the heat and the fear of runny make up due to sweating.I have oily skin and therefore as summers approach I want to use less foundation due to the fear of it melting away in the sun!But recently(last summers) this thought of mine changed as I was using Revlon's Photoready foundation.
Though I equally love my MAC Studio Fix but on a usual day out like shopping or a family dinner I wear Revlon's Photoready.Saving MAC Studio Fix for parties/weddings or special occasions like birthdays and anniversaries.
Looking for that dewy glow? This lightweight, non-greasy foundation by Revlon goes on smooth to hide your imperfections. It has light coverage, but is buildable for a more full coverage. Contains sunscreen.
Revlon PhotoReady - For poreless, airbrushed skin in any light.
Photochromatic pigments bend and reflect light to erase every flaw. Complete, yet undetectable coverage. Soft, luminous finish.  

  • - Oil free
  •  Fragrance free
  •  SPF 20

As I told before I have oily skin so I was looking for a foundation that would be good for my oily skin.As this is oil free I wanted to give it a try.I have heard a lot of good things about Revlon's Colorstay but still I wanted to try this.And I must say I am completely happy with the results and since I started using this I have used no other foundation except MAC Studio Fix.
The packaging of this foundation is pretty awesome.The foundation comes in a 30 ml glass bottle with a pump dispenser that is covered with a lid.Overall its better than many other high end foundations as well because of the pump.It doesn't create a lot of mess and assures that required amount is being pumped out.Full marks for the packaging.
There are around 8 shades available in this range.Mine is Medium Beige 006.Though I ordered this online without testing but luckily it suited my skin tone as this is the one for medium to fair skin with yellow undertones.
The texture of the foundation is kind of runny.Its not very creamy and thick.It blends well.Its best blended when with a brush or fingers alone.Don't rub like you would rub a cream but using a dabbing motion blend it into your skin.This foundation has very light shimmer in it.It is there to give you that natural glow that everyone wants.This foundation gives a matte finish.The foundation is best to give you medium to full coverage.I love medium coverage on a normal day.But its buildable for maximum coverage.I finish it off with a face powder for a more complete look.
You can see that the foundation is runny.Notice the burn scar on top of the swatch.Now lets see how it is after it is dabbed with my Sigma F80.
                                           I love how well and quickly it blends.
Its extremely light wear & the skin feels like breathing.The foundation is also fragrance free.
It doesn't appear cakey due to its blending power.Sometimes I set it off with a finishing spray.
See the difference
Here are couple of pix where I am wearing Revlon Photoready Foundation.
