Revlon Photoready Foundation Review and How To Un-cap The Bottle!


Wearing Revlon Photoready Foundation in Ivory without concealer



This Revlon line of foundation comes in 12 shades ranging from fair to dark and cool to warm. The variety of tones they offer are excellent, but I think it's missing about 5 shades. Maybe 1 palest shade and a few more for darker skin. However the range in color is a lot better than a lot of drugstore foundations like Almay or Neutrogena. For about 10 dollars you can get this foundation at almost every drugstore near you. The formulation is thin in consistency and gives a light-medium coverage with a dewy and luminous finish. My skin being dry/combo, I love a good dewy foundation but this one also has shimmery pieces in it which can either be a good or bad thing depending on your skin type. For me personally, I like choosing where the shimmer/light hits my face, so with the shimmer mixed in with the foundation all over my face is just too overwhelming. Although it applies well, and is quite buildable, this foundation will not do well with oily skin, wrinkles, and pores. The wearing time is pretty average for me, probably about 5 or 6 hours before it starts to melt off my face depending on how hot it is or how much physical activity I get. As much as I adore the packaging and the pump, (as it is practical, not messy, and sanitary) there was still a lot of remaining product left in the bottom of the bottle that wouldn't come out through the pump. I HATE wasting makeup, so after many months of trying to find something to pry the plastic piece off the top, I finally found a tool and technique that worked!




First, you should take little piece off the top so it doesn't pump out into your hand as you're trying to get the top piece off.










Next, take a modeling knife (the sharp tip of mine broke off trying to pry this thing off) or anything flat, square, and thin to wedge underneath the plastic piece. Once it is under the plastic, you have to lift up while working your way around the bottle simultaneously and it will pop off! For your safety, keep it away from your face and put a paper towel underneath in case of projectile foundation when the plastic pops off. This thing is STUBBORN, so be careful and patient.






Lastly, you can put the remaining foundation into a different container, or mix in with another foundation which is what I decided to do since I didn't like the finish. Depending on how much product is left, you might have to leave the bottle sitting on top of the other one until all the product comes out. If the opening wasn't so small, I could have just scraped it out and finished the whole thing in 5 minutes. Instead, I let it sit like this for half a day and stirred them together with a toothpick. Yay for saving money on makeup! :)
