Revlon’s new products under the PhotoReady umbrella launch into Boots and Superdrug in March. I’ve had mixed results when I tried them out this morning, most notably with the Photoready Airbrush Mousse Makeup (£12.99). 

Revlon Photoready Airbrush Mousse Makeup and Eye Primer & Brightener


Maybe it’s just me but I cannot get along with Mousse foundation. I ended up squirting out far too much with this mousse and ended up with a moussy hand, mousse in my hair and generally having a mousse-related strop. It’s very hard to tell how forcefully to push the cap to let the mousse out; I started with a little squirt of mousse which wasn’t enough so tried a bit harder and it was far too much. On the skin it feels a little dry, but it has a very good level of pigment so a little goes a long way. Coverage, I must admit, is excellent.

The PhotoReady Perfection Primer is an absolute winner for me – it feels gorgeous on the skin and definitely gives a softening feel. It’s easy to blend across the skin and gave a very nice, but minimal, softening look. It’s £11.99.

Revlon PhotoReady Eye Primer and Brightener is another lovely product priced at £9.99. I felt it was very good at disguising dark circles and brightening the eye area so all boxes ticked for this one. 

Lastly, the Photoready Makeup. Very lovely but for one thing. Shimmer. And a ton of it at that. The formula is beautiful; it feels gorgeous on the skin, gives excellent coverage. I can’t quite work out if these are totally new formulas, but referring back to a post I did in 2010 when PhotoReady was truly brand new, it was the same problem then.. too much flipping glitter. Grr. 

Sparkle still left after I’d semi-wiped it off…
