It’s a massive thumbs up from me for this new foundation from Revlon launching in February 2013. For a kick off, it’s made to a very dewy formula so there is none of that *flat face* look that I loathe that comes from matte foundations. Your skin looks illuminated and dewy from the get-go. You might need to powder down oily areas (there are three Nearly Naked Pressed Powders) such as the nose and forehead, but the formulation does really catch the light and make skin look alive.
On my release there is a lot of blurb about weightless and hollow silica pigments, but I’ll spare you the detail, other than to say that it’s SPF 20 which is somewhat phenomenal for such a light feeling product.
The other thing you need to know is that it is a light coverage – totally appropriate for summer wear but unless your skin is pretty much flawless in the first place, probably slightly lacking in coverage for winter. It’s made for a younger target market, whose skin looks gorgeous when its fresh and dewy and not for those who want to actually conceal their skin.
At £8.99 and in ten shades (although none for black skin.. come on Revlon, wake up to this one!) I think it’s going to do really well.
