Revlon is one of my favorite drugstore brands, especially when it comes to base makeup. I have loved their foundations and compacts always and now that they keep coming up with new stuff everyday, am game to try everything. I have the most sensitive and strange skin, sometimes normal, sometimes combination and sometimes very oily. Most of the base makeup products seem to fade in a few hours time if am not under an Air Conditioned environment. I really wanted an affordable primer, MAC Prep And Prime would definitely burn a hole in my pocket so I picked up the Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer. Here we go with the review.
Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer Review
Price: Rs. 1295, available at flipkart.com
They have a color correcting primer as well but I preferred this perfecting primer as I do not have much unevenness or pigmentation that needs to be taken care of. This primer appears white in color but when blended, goes smooth and colorless.
It does not have any strong fragrance and my combination-oily skin loves how it gets absorbed in seconds and leaves the skin matte and soft. Dry skinned girls would find it drying and you would need a heavy duty moisturizer under it but oily skin would definitely need this. In fact, I can use it everyday as a face cream and forget about my makeup fading or my skin getting pimples.
It comes in a small pump bottle but the lid is not too tight. Revlon products come sealed so it is not possible to check before purchasing.:(
It is a silicone based primer so you need to shake it well before taking the product out. I require 2 pumps for my face and neck. It goes on smooth, hides my open pores and makes my skin matte. Foundation goes on smoothly over this and skin remains oil free for a few more hours with this. This is definitely one of the best primers for oily skin.
Rating: 4.9/5 ( Packaging could have better)
Must have for oily skin. It is a tad expensive for a drugstore product but the quantity is huge. It suits sensitive skin so that’s another plus.
Which is the best primer that you have used?
