Here’s what our Review Crew® had to say about this antioxidant-rich foundation

The product

When it comes to a foundation you can wear every day, you want something that’s lightweight and gives you the kind of radiant, ‘lit from within’ glow that’ll leave everyone around you feeling a little envious.

Revlon PhotoReady Candid Glow™ Foundation doesn’t just give you a lightweight coverage with a dewy finish; this skin care and makeup hybrid contains a blend of potent antioxidants that work to protect skin against premature ageing and skin damage caused by pollutants and blue light.

Our panel of Review Crew® testers put this foundation to the test.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent Revlon PhotoReady Candid Glow™ Foundation to a panel of women aged between 25 and 39 who wanted a light-coverage foundation with a dewy finish.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the Revlon PhotoReady Candid Glow™ Foundation.

The lightweight, natural finish: Because of the lightweight formula, reviewers found that the foundation was comfortable enough for everyday wear, while the buildable sheer to medium coverage allowed them to customise their makeup look.

The dewy glow it gave skin: Our members were bigs fans of the ‘lit from within’ glow the foundation imparted. Specifically, reviewers with dry skin really loved the fact that it kept their skin looking hydrated all day without accentuating dry patches or looking cakey. 

The convenient, travel-friendly packaging: One point that our reviewers kept mentioning was how much they loved the tube-style packaging and handy pump dispenser. In fact, many of our members said they were more inclined to pack this foundation in their bags over their cumbersomely heavy, glass-bottled foundations.

The verdict

“Incredibly surprised how easy it was to blend with a brush and my fingers. The foundation set beautifully giving a subtle glow to the skin without the shiny finish. The foundation didn’t oxidise nor [did it] have a strong smell to it. Very impressed!”

“I was really impressed by this! It's a fairly light coverage, but buildable without being cakey, and still covered dark circles etc pretty well. The finish is gorgeous. I usually prefer a matte finish but the satin texture of this nearly had me converted! It's a handy package - glass bottles are a pain if you travel a lot, so this pump action is great.”

“It has light coverage, evening my skin tone and texture while providing a natural dewy glow to my skin. It is hydrating and did not dry out my skin or block my pores. It suits my style as I prefer a natural everyday look; the foundation was easy to build upon without caking on my skin.”
