Packaging: 9/10

This foundation comes in a metal canister with a plastic pump dispenser. The packaging is air-tight, which is great for keeping the foundation sanitary.

Quality: 8.25/10

The shade in Nude matches NC20-25 skin well. Unlike Maybelline’s Dream Nude Airfoam Foundation in Light Beige, Nude has no orange tint. There are no shimmers in this foundation, unlike most of the other face products in the PhotoReady line. As with Maybelline’s shade range, Revlon’s lacks sufficient choices for dark skin.

You get light-to-medium coverage, which is more than you can get out of Maybelline’s counterpart. The consistency is bubbly when it’s dispensed out of the pump, but soon becomes a thin liquid. This makes it easy to distribute over the skin.

The foundation leaves a dewy finish, so unless you have dry skin, you’ll probably need to set it with powder. It doesn’t feel as light or “invisible” on the skin as Maybelline’s Airfoam Foundation does, making the title “Airbrush” somewhat inaccurate.

After about 5-6 hours of wear, this foundation looks less fresh. You may also want to blot your face throughout the day, since this foundation seems to re-gain its dewy finish every couple of hours.

This foundation doesn’t have any sun-protection ingredients, so you will have to apply a sunscreen underneath.

Ease of Use: 9/10

Just 1-2 pumps will cover your entire face. Because the consistency is liquidy, it is very easy to distribute over the skin evenly. Application can be extremely quick if you rub the foundation between your palms and spread it over your face like you would a moisturizer. The product can also be layered in this manner. Of course, you can apply with a brush or sponge, but you will lose more product this way because it is so thin in consistency.

Price: 8.5/10

For $13.99, you get 1.4 fl oz (39.7 grams) of foundation. Maybelline’s equivalent is $10.99 and contains 1.6 fl oz.
