Product Fail: Revlon PhotoReady Cream Blush in Pinched

By Wendy Larson

Most of the PhotoReady line that I’ve tried I haven’t been terribly wowed by.  I’ve liked the original foundation, but wouldn’t repurchase it, and hate the mousse version.  Nevertheless I thought I’d try out one of the 3 cream blushes that are new to the line.

Pinched is a lighter peach color without shimmer.  I like that the product is super lightweight and the pot comes with a lot of product for the money (around $13).  That’s about the extent of what I liked.

The color doesn’t show up, even on my fair skin (MAC NC20-25) and doesn’t blend very well.  I tried using both a brush and my fingers, and the blush seems to fair better when applied with a brush, however I found that my fingers packed on more color.  What good is packing on color if it doesn’t blend out?

NYX proves that it is possible to have wonderfully pigmented and blendable cream blushes at an affordable price.  I must say I have been terribly spoiled by my NYX cream blushes.  The other colors might be more pigmented and easier to work with, but I think I’ll stay away.

    I hate the Photo Ready foundation; I swear the pigment is coarser than some others (like, their Color Stay foundation), and it has the exact opposite effect of what it’s supposed to do: it magnifies every line in my face! Instead of special occasion makeup it’s become use it up around the house makeup.

    It’s definitely a wintertime only foundation for me, since I’m WAY too oily for it in the summer, but yes- it did become “might as well use it up” foundation. I just wish that Revlon would have taken the pump packaging and put ColorStay in it.

    What is up with Revlon being so hit and miss?

    Revlon is SO hit or miss. I can’t deal.
