Photo Ready Foundation : Revlon Insta-Filter



A foundation that helps me be photo ready at all times. When going to events, I love knowing my foundation is going to look good, not just in person, but in the photos that will inevitably be taken. Revlon's Insta-Filter Foundation claims to be the perfect, photo ready foundation!

Revlon's Insta-Filter Foundation is one of their newest foundation that is designed to be a FLAWLESS-FINISH FOUNDATION WITH BUILT-IN BLENDER so you have a perfected makeup look anytime, anywhere. The innovative formula works with your skin type and evens and smooths your skin tone, to leave you with a fresh faced, natural finish. 

I was really curious about this foundation, especially after hearing some interesting and positive reviews about the foundation from a variety of people. I picked the foundation at a Priceline sale and have only just got around to testing it out. It is one of the more interesting foundations I have bought and used, very different to any other foundation I have used before. The foundation retails for $34.95, putting it on the pricier end of drugstore foundations, so I did put slightly higher expectations on the product.

First thing first, the shade range isn't the most comprehensive. There are a total of nine shades and they definitely don't cater to the darker end of the spectrum. I have the shade Ivory, which is the lightest of the range. I have to say it's a pretty good match, maybe a touch too light, but the next shade is too warm for my skin tone, so it is the closest match I was going to get. 



Now let's talk about the packaging. It is a new, innovative packaging that is designed to make it easy to apply and blend out anywhere - at home, in the cab on the way to dinner, or at the office, when you need a quick touch up. It has a sponge on the top of the tube and you twist the bottom to push the packaging out of the hole in the middle of the sponge. To apply, you simply twist to produce some product, then dab on the skin, before using the sponge to blend the foundation into the skin. Ok...let me be honest here....I HATE the packaging. I understand what they are trying to do, but honestly I just find it unhygienic and just messy. It doesn't blend the foundation in easily and I preferred to use either my own sponge or a brush to blend the foundation into my skin. 

I have to say I have had some mixed experiences with this foundation. The first couple of times it applied really well and lasted quite well (aside from my t-zone that was quite patchy by the end of the day). However, the more I used it, the worse it performed. Now, no matter what primer I use or how I prep my skin, the foundation just balls up on my skin and won't sit properly. As you might be able to see in the images below, it just doesn't want to sit on my skin. 




After having some good wears at the start, I was disappointed by the way the foundation just didn't really want to sit on my skin properly. It had so much potential, but at the end of the day, it just doesn't work for me. 

Have you tried the Revlon Insta-Filter Foundation already? I'd love to hear how you found it. Did you love it? Or did you have similar experiences to me? xx
