I'm not going to lie, I'm not a big fan of drugstore foundations. I feel like you can cut corners with everything else but you should invest in foundation. However, there was something about this makeup that drew me to it. Maybe because Halle Berry is the face of this foundation? Well whatever the reason I read several reviews on this foundation and for the most part everyone was raving about it. So I decided to give it a try!
The color I chose is called True Beige. Check out this packaging doesn't it look Chanel-esque?
The texture of the foundation is a little hard to describe. It feels wetter than I thought. I guess I thought it would feel fluffier.
Here I put a dab on the back of my hand to swatch it. I have very yellow undertones.
As you can see the foundation is rather pink. This is no good for me since I am very yellow.
This is my freshly washed face. I only did my eyebrows. As you can see I have some blemishes and a couple freckles.
This is after I applied it. As you can see it has some good coverage since you can not see as many of my blemishes. You may not be able to tell in this picture but the color is a bit off, it gives me a pink hue.
Key Claims via Revlon.com:
The mousse-like texture feels like silk on your skin. And, the time release formula balances skin for a flawless look. All day flexible wear without flaking, caking or feeling heavy.
Overall this is a really good foundation for drugstore brand. I wore it all day and it stayed on. It didn't make me any oiler than I usually am so that's good. It blends into your skin like a dream and it doesn't feel heavy at all. You can layer it for more coverage if you would like. I really only have 2 issues with it. The packaging is cute and all but I like foundations that have pumps so I can control the amount I use so I don't waste product. I also feel like having a pump is more sanitary. My other issue is that I wish some of the colors had more yellow in it. I feel like they all have a pink hue to it. The color I chose for myself was on a whim. It's not the correct color since it has some pink in it but it is somewhat doable with the correct powder.
However, I think I'm going to take this back. If it had more yellow I would keep it. But if you are able to find a shade that best matches you then this is a keeper! It's kind of pricey at $13.99 but right now Walgreens has BOGO so this is a great opportunity to get 2 different colors to see which one matches better. Keep your receipt so you can take it back!
What do you think about the foundation? Have you tried it?
