      I’ve tried a few products in the Revlon PhotoReady line and have honestly not liked them all that much, but when I ran out of my usual ColorStay pressed powder, I figured I’d try something new. I like to give my skin a breather every couple of months and use a different makeup, and sometimes they are pretty successful experiments and I have a nice list of products I can turn to when I want to take a break from the ColorStay line. My skin is ver persnickety, as it has an extremely oily finish that I can only control with multiple blotting sheets throughout the day. This is expensive, and I’m always on the look out for powders and foundations that will control the oil for as long as absoluteluy possible. At least this Revlon PhotoReady Translucent

      Finisher was oil-free and friendlier to my skin than some powders.

      And boy when they say transulcent, they really mean it! It is so light in the packaging as to be almost invisible. You think you’re going to be putting on a clear powder, but the packaging said that it’s supposed to give you a nice airbrushed finish, and can work as a stand-alone product, or over an existing foundation. I have breakouts on a continual basis, sometimes very mild as to be almost unnoticeable and sometimes very troublesome. I was hesitant to believe that this would be sufficient coverage by itself, especially considering it’s a translucent mix, and I was right to believe that. I tried using it on it’s own, and I wasn’t even experiencing but a couple very mild blemishes at the time, and I

      really didn’t think this covered much of anything at all, at least not on it’s own. I have blotchy red skin around my nose and chin, and this covered the redness a little, but not enough. So, I washed my face and started from scratch and applied my ColorStay liquid foundation first, which provides medium coverage which is usually sufficient for my skin problems.

      It comes with a little brush, like a brush blush, and is pretty much applied the same way as a blush as well. You just sweep the powder over the entire face. I’m so used to a pressed powder compact that comes with a little sponge or pad, and I feel like I’m really applying more coverage that way, so it took a little getting used to using this tiny little cheap brush. Actually,

      after a few days, I went and bought a better brush, and it worked much better at adding more coverage.

      Because it’s translucent, I didn’t have any problem with the powder looking too light or dark on my skin. It worked very well blending over my foundation, and there was never a conflict of color interests at play here, which can sometimes happen when you’re using too different lines of products. I thought that, over the foundation, it added just a hint of even-ing power, and really settled the foundation on to my skin nicely. It smoothed over the blemishes and discoloration that the foundation couldn’t quite touch, and created a nice balance. It’s not my favorite Revlon product, but it really wasn’t half bad at all. Though it’s translucent and supposedly good for all skin types, I’m

      not sure someone with darker skin could get away with it, because there is still a pale pigmentation about it that would lighten up the skin. Maybe “brighten” up the skin is better suited to this product. My eyes felt more alive and bright and fresh, and I love that this product is very light and airy and I don’t feel like I’m caking product on my face, especially when I have to refresh my powder in the middle of the day. Instead, this works like a charm…. except that it doesn’t really control shine for very long. Then again, I haven’t really found anything that does. As long as I use my blotting sheets, this keeps my foundation looking much more flawless than I’m used to, and I’ll definitely be buying this product again in the future. Worth the price.
