I have combination skin that is prone to pimples at the slightest change. I used to get pimples every time I try a new scrub, new cleanser, new blush and what not. I am always irritated about this because, the moment I wear make up for some special occasion, the very next day my skin will be a battle ground.
After serious understanding of my skin (will put a separate post on how I controlled my breakouts). I started slowly experimenting with makeup. I was looking for a daily wear mild foundation that is good to my skin and at the same time doesn't burn a hole in my then student pocket.
Lakme’s liquid foundation and the daily wear one broke me out terribly and I bought the one from Revlon. Read on to know more about the performance of Revlon’s Moisturizing Makeup.
Name of Product: Revlon Touch and Glow TM Moisturizing Makeup.
Quantity: 20 Ml.
Price: Rs. 215/- but I got it for Rs. 200/-
Shades Available: Ivory Mist, Rose Mist, Natural Mist and Golden Mist.
Shade I Got: Ivory Mist.
What Revlon Claims: A Light Water based Moisturizing makeup for a naturally radiant finish.
Key Ingredients: Titanium Dioxide, Butylene Glycol, Talc, Lanolin Alcohol.
This product comes in a Transparent glass bottle with a screw cap. There is no stopper or nozzle attached to the opening and the screw cap is of no good. I had a bad experience when I put in my bag and the product had come off out despite the fact that it was screwed tight. And hence it’s not travel friendly.
The product is of runny consistency and as there is no stopper, it at many times flows out in large quantities when I try to take it out resulting in product wastage.
I got my perfect shade in Ivory Mist even though the product has just 4 shades to choose from. The product does not give full coverage and does not claim to give either. It covers mild blemishes and somewhat evens out the skin tone and imparts a mildly shiny glow. It does not irritate my skin. The product due to its runny texture is easily spreadable. We need to be careful about the quantity used because; more quantity results in weird oily look.
The product, if set with a powder stays on for around 4 hours after which certain parts of the face gets oily.
As for the moisturizing claim, I don’t seem to be pretty impressed. As I always wear a moisturizer beneath it, I am okay with it.
If we are applying the product in dots over the entire face and neck and then blending it, we need to be swift as they kind of dry fast and it gets difficult to spread them.
Overall, it’s a good product for daily use if you are not looking at full coverage etc. It gives a nice shiny finish to the face. If you are a matte person then this is definitely not for you.
Now summing up its pro’s and con’s.
1. Does not irritate or break out the skin.
2. Gives a nice glow to the face.
3. The shade Ivory Mist is a true match to my skin tone.
4. Easily spreadable.
5. Evens out the skin tone.
5. Nice not so overpowering fragrance.
6. Does not make the face look scary in photographs.
1. After some time face looks oily.
2. Cap is of no use. Not travel friendly.
3. Dries out fast so needs swift blending.
4. Not long lasting and comes off in tissues when we try to blot the oil, making it inappropriate for office goers who hate touch ups.
Will I repurchase?
Now I use the lotus purestay one and I have the habit of having another foundation just in case. As this one matches my skin tone perfectly, I might repurchase this one as a back up foundation.
Will I recommend?
Yes to college girls who needs a decent pocket friendly product.
