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!

Mini Haul

Just a little haul of what I got over the weekend...

Firstly I bought some earrings from Topshop which were half price so I got them for £6.25  for 3 sets of earrings which I think is really good value. I only ever wear gold jewellery as I find silver just doesn't suit me. I love the vintage look of these and think they'll get lots of wear.

Also this week I've been to Birmingham and eventually managed to have a decent look around Forever21, I went to their Oxford Street store last month but didn't have enough time to buy anything as I had a train to catch (and I think because I was just standing in awe for quite a while wondering which way to go in their jewellery section!) I bought these earrings this time....

Still loving the triangles! I also bought a top (which I wore yesterday, so couldn't photograph!), and some underwear (which I doubt you'll want to see!)

I also went to Primark whilst in Birmingham and bought the most Summery thing ever.....NOT!  Haha...suede imitation boots! I don't have any black booties and for £8 I couldn't say no, even if we are at the end of June!

And lastly I bought two more Revlon Lip Butters in Lollipop and Tutti Frutti....

Thanks for reading! Kelly
