Whilst browsing Boots a few weeks ago knowing i needed a new powder i thought I'd go for something different. Normally i stick to my Rimmel Stay Matte and i swear by it - but i wanted to see what else was on offer. I ended up picking up the Revlon PhotoReady Powder in Fair/Light (£11.29 Boots). I've used a lot of Revlon products over the years so i knew what kind of quality to expect.
Considering i have dry skin one of my main concerns with powders is looking too matte. What i want from a powder is to set my make up for the day and to add a little extra coverage where needed. As my skin is dry, i don't have a problem with needing to touch up throughout the day thankfully. First of all, i found the shade to be a great match. Sometimes it can be hard to find pale foundations or powders on the high street but Revlon have definitely stood out with their shade selection. I'd say the coverage is very light but it does have great setting powder.
I have learnt to use a light hand while applying this as it does have the tendency to make my face look too matte. Revlon is one of the more expensive brands on the high street but I'd say the quality is great. It's not my favourite powder ever but it works well enough for me and is great for day to day use.
