Revlon PhotoReady Candid Foundation

Revlon has released a brand-spankin’ new foundation, which boasts a formula that will protect your skin from free-radical damage, blue-light damage, and pollution, all while being really natural and comfortable on the skin. But with so many impressive claims, how does it stack up?

Revlon PhotoReady Candid Natural-Finish Anti-Pollution Foundation

revlon candid foundation review

Revlon PhotoReady Candid Natural Finish Anti-Pollution Foundation is a skincare inspired foundation that’s ultra blendable, ultra buildable, and infused with antioxidants, anti-pollution, and anti-blue light ingredients.

Key Points:

  • Anti-pollution, antioxidant and anti-blue light formula
  • Medium coverage with the option to build up
  • No oils, parabens, phthalates, synthetic dye or fragrances
  • 16 shades (30 shades offered in the US)
  • Squeezy tube with a pump

Candid Formula:

The formula feels almost like a gel. It is light, easy to spread and blend. Not a lot of product is needed to get even medium coverage, but it is so easily layered to achieve something a little more full.  The finish is weightless, natural -looking with an ever so slight glow.  I am surprised at the results every time I wear this.

Performance and Longevity:

I found Revlon Candid lasted really well on my oily skin. Throughout the day, fading was kept at a minimum, only a slight amount of oil began to poke its head through and the overall finish remained light and fresh.  I was so surprised that my whole makeup look was left intact, even after a massive 12 hour day.

My Thoughtson Candid:

I am pretty impressed. This is a really decent foundation Revlon Candid not only feels weightless, but it looks so lovely and natural. And not just first thing in the morning, but all damn day.  It evened out my skin-tone and effortlessly covered pigmentation and discolouration.  The added bonus of no oils, parabens, phthalates, dyes or fragrances makes this little guy a great everyday foundation for me.  It looks and feels good but it isn’t going to irritate my skin. In fact, it is going to protect it from blue-light, free-radicals and pollution. Winner.

Despite my great experience with Revlon Candid, some blogging friends haven’t had such glowing reviews. Dry-skinned gals, it might be worth checking out Emmie’s thoughts on this foundation.

Revlon PhotoReady Candid Natural-Finish Anti-Pollution Foundation retails for $24.95 from Priceline and Chemist Warehouse.
