Finding the right foundation and concealer can be a hassle. Not to mention, with summer coming up, sunscreen and foundation seem to be at war. BB Creams streamline this process by acting as moisturizer, primer, sunscreen, skin treatment, concealer, and foundation. The catch? You really have to find the right one. Let’s see how Revlon’s PhotoReady BB Cream with SPF 30 holds up.
Color: The color range on this line is fairly limited. I only see three shades available on their website and these shades are neutral, so cool or warm toned girls might be turned off. However, it is sheer enough that a slightly off shade won’t leave you looking sick. Which brings us to…
Coverage: The coverage with this is sheer to medium. I find that this is much better at hiding red tones, but not so great at covering texture issues like pock marks or pimples. I don’t usually mind lighter coverage except…
Texture: For the sheerness of the coverage I got, I expected this to be a lot lighter. Don’t get me wrong, it isn’t super gunky or heavy. It has the texture I find typical of BB creams in that it sits a tad heavy on the skin. If you don’t usually mind the texture of BB creams, you probably won’t mind this.
Finish: The finish is perfectly just matte enough to photograph beautifully. I did notice that it made the areas of my skin that were flaky even more noticeably flaky, but that can be remedied by putting a little extra moisturizer on underneath.
Cruelty-Free: No, Revlon tests on animals. The only reason I even have this is because my mom gifted it to me after it irritated her sensitive skin.
So what do you think? Do you like BB Creams? Will you try this product?
