I've ummed and ahhed over whether to get this for absolutely ages. I swatched it in Boots and wasn't too sure about the glitter thing, but when I saw a brand new bottle on a blog sale for £6 I snapped it up. At least it wasn't full price if I didn't like it right? So, did I? Keep reading to find out :)

Revlon say: For poreless, airbrushed skin in any light. Photochromatic pigments bend and reflect light to erase every flaw. Complete, yet undetectable coverage. Soft, luminous finish. Oil free, fragrance free, and contains SPF 20.
I say: On first application, I really didn't think this was anything special. Luckily it was not a glitterfest as I'd previously worried about. However I didn't look flawless or airbrushed. I think ColorStay does a much better job on this front. Sorry Revlon. One thing I am pleased about is the fact that PhotoReady is oil free and contains SPF20. This means I don't go shiny towards the end of the day, and my skin is protected.
Revlon say: Using finger tips or a Revlon Foundation Brush, blend foundation onto skin starting in the centre of your face, forehead, nose and chin, blending outward.
I say: As with all foundation, I use a brush to apply, in particular the GOSH Duo Fibre brush. I always use a primer first. The first time I used PhotoReady, I found that it looked a bit cakey and I have no idea why. I tried it again and it was fine. Maybe I had too much on first time round. Overall, it gave a nice finish and I didn't look like an extra from Twilight. Win.
Price: £12.99 (Currently £9.99 in Boots)
Available from: Boots
Packaging: 10/10 (A pump finally!)
Repurchase: Probably not, I prefer ColorStay
EDIT: I mixed PhotoReady with ColorStay and it applies so much better giving a much nicer finish. LOVE :)
Have you tried PhotoReady? Would you in the future? Let me know what you think :)
