Revlon Photoready Insta-Filter Foundation (All shades)

Did you know that Revlon came out with a new foundation a few months ago? Available in 12 shades, the Insta-Filter foundation is supposed to provide medium (but buildable) coverage and a natural finish. The high-definition filter technology captures light to blur flaws, while the built-in sponge applicator is said to blend the foundation easily.

My skin is oily with a few dry patches, and this foundation is great for my skin type. I like how it doesn't accentuate dry patches even if it has a satin finish!

It doesn't make my skin look super oily, I only need to use a blotting sheet once or twice during the day! But if your skin is very oily, I would suggest to set it with a bit of loose powder. I like to use a mattifying primer as well, such as the BareMinerals Combo Control milky face primer.

The coverage is medium, but buildable. It doesn't feel heavy or sticky, and I love how it looks on my skin!

The Insta-Filter foundation lasts 8 hours on me. So the staying power is pretty good, but it's not the most long-wearing foundation on the market!

With that being said, the sponge applicator is terrible. It leaves my foundation looking streaky. Also, you can't wash it so it's not the most hygienic packaging.

I prefer to apply the Insta-Filter foundation with a damp Beautyblender or with a brush. It looks good if I apply it with my fingers, but for some strange reason it leaves white streaks on my skin, so I need to massage the foundation on my face to mix the pigments back together. I don't have this problem when I apply it with a Beautyblender or a brush.

Overall, the foundation itself is great! I like the finish on my skin and the coverage is pretty good. However, I really dislike the sponge applicator.
