I was never a heavy powder user. I usually stick to foundations that need less retouching during the rest of the day or a primer. But such is life, and when you're a beauty blogger, you just can't resist not trying out things --- even when you've found all of your HGs and what have yous. It's just the curious kitty cat in all of us. Can I get an amen to that? *internet high five*

When I was sent the Revlon PhotoReady collection, I couldn't resist letting it just stay in my dresser -- so I hurriedly used it, and abused it for hmm, I guess two weeks now. Here's the verdict:

Much like most of your powder make up, one would need a primer [or a real good moisturizer] for this. I don't know about you but my skin can have dry spells when it likes to. In that context, I switched to a heavier moisturizer (that's Olay TE for me) and the problem of it not sticking to my face was eliminated. I initially thought the shade was too white on me when I tried but apparently, it's just perfect and natural and it seems like I have flawless skin. Lookie:

I am surprised that the powder looks so natural on me, like I don't have a pile of makeup on, despite not having naturally flawless skin. Also, I can remember not putting on some liquid foundation this day as I was en route to class the morning and it was oh so terribly hot then.

Overall: I liked the product though since I'm terribly darker now, I wouldn't be using it again anytime soon, lest I look like a clown. It's good for everyday use, methinks because it's not too heavy, there are no specks or glitters and retouching with it doesn't make it cake on your face. Oh and it's affordable, too, at Php 975.00! Go ahead and try it, now available at your favorite Revlon counters.

Here's how it looks close up. Same FOTD from the TBS post.

  • Micro-refined, ultra lightweight texture that’s virtually undetectable
  • Oil Free, Fragrance free

Can I just say how much I need a finishing powder in my life? From that statement alone, one can say that this is my favorite product of the three! Finishing powders are like magic dusts that seal make up [at least to me] and make it all seem to glowing and put together. Just like the liquid foundation from this line, there are specks of glitters and if you're not careful, it may end up making you look shiny. I used this for one of the events we had before I left, too and I only used it on parts I wanted to highlight, ergo, cheekbones etc. Love, love it! Oh and it's under a thousand bucks, too!

Used here with my MAC Studio Fix Foundation

The finishing powder comes in one shade, I've yet to try if it works on darker skintones like what I have now and I will definitely let you know!
