Are You Photo Ready?

Not me. Not all the time at least.

The biggest blunder of having a technology so fast-paced is that mortals like us have to be ready at all times with that glowing, healthy flawless skin.

But life is not perfect all the time. Sometimes one wakes up with ugly blemishes, discolorations, worse, a zit (like I did two weeks ago and it's still on my cheek, damn!). Thankfully, with the advent of "Shoot whenever, wherever" photo and video gadgets, comes makeup that allows us mere mortals to look decent in every flash and every pixel we appear in.

Beauty Trend High Definition Makeup!

We live in the digital age-mobile phones and cameras mean that every waking moment is a ‘photo-opportunity’! So whether it is makeup for everyday wear, special occasions when you want to look your best …. like the bride to be you can be photo-ready any where any time!

High Definition makeup uses advanced technology photo-chromatic pigments to give the complexion a flawless, natural finish under the magnification of any light!  Revlon PhotoReady taps into the emerging hi-def (HD) technology Beauty Trends for flawless skin under any light at an affordable price!  The collection is designed to provide flawless results even under unflattering conditions such as harsh lighting environments & High Definition scrutiny!

“Products feature the latest technologies in photo-chromatic pigments, optical blurring & coated spheres, which provide polish and coverage, even through a high definition lens.” Product Development Revlon US 
I've been hearing about High Definition makeup [yes, just like TVs, there's one for make up, too] for probably more than a year now but the prices have always turned me off.  For someone who doesn't make money for good looks, I'd have to control my investments on make up. It's a good thing that brands such as Revlon comes up with quality make up that is never over any one's budget.

Revlon endorser Halle Berry says, "Now, there is no such thing as bad lighting."

I'd been lucky to be one of the first few people to have been able to test the three products from Revlon's PhotoReady Line and here are my thoughts about them:

Revlon PhotoReady Foundation in Nude

What Revlon says:
  • Photochromatic pigments bend and diffuse light to help erase every flaw
  • Complete yet undetectable coverage
  • Soft luminous finish
  • SPF 20
  • In shades from light to deep
  • Try with Revlon PhotoReady™ Powder or Translucent Finisher
  • Oil Free, Fragrance free
What I liked about it:
  • In this heat, I'm quite surprised my makeup did not melt ASAP in the morning when I applied it. 
  • True to its claim, the coverage was amazing, there was no streaking (meaning its consistency was just enough and not too runny). 
  • Packaging is real nice with the pump.
  • No clumping whatsoever. My skin seems to absorb this foundation really well, too.
  • I used my foundation brush when I applied makeup on my friend C but I always use my fingers on myself so I guess this product is very versatile in terms of application.
  • Yes, there are glitters but they're hardly visible so you definitely won't look like a Can Can dancer.
  • Didn't turn dark on me, yay!
  • Despite the SPF on it. the photos don't give a white cast. 
  • Doesn't feel heavy at all.
  • Less than Php 1,000 for its SRP [Php 925.00]
  • Available in five shades: Shell, Nude, Natural Beige, Medium Beige, Cool Beige at all Watson's branches.

What I don't like about the product:  None, really.
