I am happy to report that Revlon Photoready in Shell is working out amazingly well. I found it to be a difficult foundation to work with at first. I tried it out the second I brought it home and I just had that awful feeling of, "Not again."
It needs a little extra time with application, like instead of 30 seconds, a full minute. lol And it definitely needs to be applied with the fingers. Well for me it worked that way. I currently do not have a beauty blender to test it out with. I prefer damp fingers to help work it in, not wet, just clean the hands and pat on the towel.
At first I used my usual technique of dotting my face and stipling with brush. No good. I used too much and it settled in my pores and it's slightly too yellow on heavy application. The brush did nothing to help with blending. I even used a spritz of Rare Minerals Moisture Burst Facial Mist and it just wasn't enough. Fingers work much nicer.
The color is slightly yellow but I found that the yellow works to tone down my redness a bit. I'm still debating about getting the next shade up Nude to mix for the summer months when I'm a bit darker. Surprisingly I haven't been shopping all week!
It does have a slight sparkle but sometimes it is noticeable, other times not. They are tiny, tiny. Not sure if they changed the formula or not. I know many have complained that it is way to glittery. But it blends in with all the other shimmers I put on my face either from fall out from my eyeshadow or my PF bronzer!
Love it! Well this week I do anyway. lol
