For reference, my skin is very pale....I wear a N3 in MAC's Studio Fix Powder Foundation. I ended up purchasing the color #150 Buff which turns about not to be the lightest color. However, the Ivory, the lightest seemed a bit too pink for my skin tone ( I'm more neutral ) Anyway, here is what Revlon states about this new foundation....
- Buildable to full coverage for flawless skin
- Soft, matte finish for all day wear
- Time release formula balances skin
- Withstands heat and humidity
- Comes in 16 shades
As you can see, this foundation is a cream like texture, not a mousse consistency Revlon claims. It's not a whipped, airy feel! It's definitely a slightly fluffy cream that does glide on well without a ton of effort.
My biggest problem with this foundation other than the fact that the color is not a match for my pale skin was the end result...It didn't look good on my skin!! I have combination skin that can have dry patches from time to time and this foundation seemed to accentuate any dry areas.
Another issue I had with this was the fact that it looked cakey and heavy, like I was wearing a mask. As I stated above, I prefer a powder foundation because I feel I have more control over the coverage I get and this foundation it seemed that no matter how I applied it, it looked like a mask.
I personal feel that this foundation would be best suited for someone who has an oilier skin type. This formulation contains silica, a component to control and absorb oil. An oily skin type would benefit from this formulation and it's ability to keep the skin more balanced throughout the day. It also provides a matte finish, an oilier skin's necessity! Esthetically, a drier skin would benefit more from a foundation that gives a more radiant and dewy finish.
What do you think of this foundation??
