Revlon Photoready Airbrush Mousse Makeup Review

I bought this yesterday in Boots, I had a £2 off foundation/mascara voucher and wanted to be a bit more adventurous, and purchase something a little different than just your standard liquid foundation. I picked up the lightest colour (020 Shell) I could find being a pale little thing, and it was surprisingly a very good match, usually even the lightest colours in most normal foundation ranges are too dark for me!

Now what lured me to this product the most was the consistency. It's like an air-whipped mousse and comes out of the bottle a little like shaving foam. However A LOT comes out in one press so be careful, as it could get very messy! The foundation itself gives medium coverage I would say, it didn't totally cover some of my blemishes and I had to use extra powder around my problem areas. In addition it contains quite a lot of shimmer, I personally don't mind this because it gives my face a subtle glow, but I know it's not for everyone.

The biggest complaint I have about this product, is that it DOES NOT smell good!! I don't know what it is but it's just not nice, and to think you're going to have that smell close to your nose all day is not very enticing!

I don't think I'd buy this product again, I  do like the concept but I think it's more of a gimmick than a way of actually producing a better foundation.
So I have  now ventured out into the world of mousse foundation, and decided that I'm going to stick with good old liquid, until the next exciting innovation comes along!
